These terms can be obtained in writing on request.

Vouchers that show a gift may only be used for that particular gift and may not be used as part-payment or cash against other services, including any special offer that might be running.
Vouchers are a form of currency and must be presented on arrival, either to reception in the case of accommodation, or the restaurant manager for food and drink services.
