How are child and senior defined?

Children aged 12 years and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult/legal guardian to ensure that the child’s behaviour is appropriate for other guests within The Royal Yacht. Subject to availability of suitable accommodation, children aged 12 years and under stay free when sharing a room with two adults. Children in their own room will pay the full adult rate. At the discretion of The Royal Yacht, children may be excluded from certain events or promotions where deemed unsuitable or inappropriate. Please note one of the guests occupying a room needs to be over 18 years old. The Spa is not suitable for children under 16 years of age and therefore children in this age group are not permitted to use the spa’s facilities including the swimming pool.  As a result, we would like to offer children under 16 a complimentary pass to Aquasplash swimming pool. Clients must read and follow the conditions of use displayed at such facilities.

We have children; can we get extra beds/cots in the room?

We can accommodate children under 12 years old when sharing with adults. Maximum occupancy in one room is 2 adults and 1 child. One extra bed or cot can be provided in specific room types; please check with reservations. Extra beds may be arranged for children between 12 and 16 years of age for £25/night.


How do I cancel/change my reservation?

Does the hotel have a baby listening service?

The Royal Yacht does not unfortunately offer a baby listening service. We would recommend that guests consider hiring a baby sitting service, should they wish to go out. We currently only know of one service that is insured to baby sit in hotels, Mini Me’s Activities.

The Royal Yacht does not accept any responsibility or liability for this or any company to mind minors. Hiring of baby sitting services is done at the guest’s own risk and guests accept full liability for this person’s actions whilst in the hotel. Should guests hire a service, we request that they notify front desk so we may be aware of the presence of an extra person for fire and safety purposes.
