A Valid Form of photo I.D. and credit card will be required at the time of check in.

An additional $100 security bond will be charged upon arrival with the credit card provided.

Once a charge has been made, we cannot release, remove or lower the charged amount, until we process the final account on departure.

The security bond will be refunded upon departure unless used at the hotels discretion to cover incidental items such as (but not limited to):

Telephone charges, room service or extra breakfast charges

Any breakages or damage / smoking in room damage incurred during your stay.

Any excessive cleaning charges, above the normal level of cleaning due to the room being left in an unacceptable state.Additional full cleaning services requested more than once a day.



We reserve the right to reject bookings, evict and / or remove guests who cannot provide enough bond to cover potential damage / charges. Guests who damage property will be blacklisted from Quality Hotel Lincoln Green and we may choose to involve / notify the police if guests do not cooperate and vacate the premises when requested by the Hotel in a courteous manner.


Who is responsible?

The registered guest name is the person responsible for the hotel room and its contents for the period of registration. The registered guest will be liable for damages caused by third parties, including but not limited to visiting friends; regardless of whether the registered guest is present or not at the time the damage occurs.


But I have prepaid my accommodation?

You may have prepaid your accommodation with one of our online suppliers. In this instance you will only be asked for a credit card / authorization form for the bond to cover incidentals of your stay.

If you do not have any charges on your account, your bond will be refunded on the day of departure by close of business.

This is a requirement for the hotel to accept your booking.


Why do you do this?

Sadly, our industry is regularly being targeted by people who are using stolen credit cards or just choose not to pay for their stay. We have 5-20 credit cards a month that are rejected when we go to charge them.

Unfortunately, it is the small number of people that can potentially cost us a lot of money that has meant this policy has been introduced.

We thank you for your understanding.
