If your deposit is being secured for with a third party credit card we will require written authorisation to be provided by the card-holder.
3. Payment for Group Bookings is pre-paid. All payment must be sorted prior to arrival or you may be hindered from checking-in to the property.

6. If any payment under these terms and conditions is overdue, then without prejudice to our other rights and remedies we may cancel your booking; and/or we may suspend the supply and/or deliveries of any other services provided to you by us.

- In the case of a late departure (after 10am), Safestay reserves the right to charge for a further nights stay at the appropriate rack rate of the bed(s).
- We reserve the right to charge the guest for any damages/vandalism caused to the hostel, by their actions, including accidental or incidental damages. Damages will be required to be paid prior to departure. Should this damage come to light after the guest has departed, we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card. We will however make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that the guest would incur to a minimum.
- We reserve the right to charge the guest the cost of replacing any items that are removed from the premises by them without consent. The charge will be the full replacement amount of the missing item, including any carriage charges.

About Safestay York

Micklegate House was built for John Bourchier of Beningborough Hall, a direct descendant of Sir John Bourchier who signed King Charles the First's death warrant; the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments describes Micklegate House as the most important Georgian residence south west of the River Ouse. It is said to have been designed by famous architect John Carr of York and was finished in 1752.

The grand stone-flagged entrance hall leads past an original fireplace through an ornate archway to the striking stair hall with sweeping staircase. The main staircase is particularly striking with superb carved balusters and sweeps in front of a magnificent arched window. Above this is a stunning rococo ceiling featuring Shakespeare's head and believed to have been created by the renowned Italian artist Cortese.
