If you are booked on a pre-paid rate you will be given the option upon check in as to whether to do a pre-authorisation. If you choose not to you will be unable to charge to your room and must pay cash or card when purchasing food or drink. Please be aware that after 11pm our bar is room charge only which again does require a pre-authorisation.
