The Owner reserves the right to enter any accommodation at any time during the period of the letting. Wherever possible Guests will be advised of the need to enter the premises. 7. The Owner reserves the right to refuse accommodation or to repossess the accommodation if they reasonably believe that any damage is likely to be caused by you or your party or can repossess the accommodation if damage has been caused.
