In these Booking Conditions, ‘you’ and ‘your’ refer to the first-mentioned person (the customer) on the reservation as well as the persons (guests) on whose behalf the reservation has been booked. The website is owned and operated by Oude Pastorie Lisse B.V. (‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’) and if you make a reservation we will receive your reservation request for agreement.

Follow the instructions on our website (www.deoudepastorielisse.nl) to book a room. To confirm your reservation, you must pay in advance via Ideal or credit card.

If you book through Booking.com, you will have to pay the entire reservation amount immediately/in advanced. You will only have to pay the tourist tax on arrival at the location.
Please check if the details provided by you, check-in & checkout date for your reservation are correct, before you submit your reservation request. We are not responsible for any delay or non-compliance related to your reservation if you provided incorrect information.
You can then place your reservation, after which a binding agreement will be concluded between you and us, as soon as we have sent you a confirmation with a valid confirmation number to confirm your reservation. If after receiving confirmation, you are convinced that a specific detail is incorrect or if you still want to change a specific detail, you must contact us immediately as it is not possible to make these changes later on, due to other possible bookings and prices.
We reserve the right, at our option, to refuse a reservation and to refuse to provide confirmation.
2. Reservation payment
At The Oude Pastorie in Lisse it is possible to pay in cash or with pin/. It is not possible to pay with credit card on location.
Depending on the type of booking, a full advanced payment of your reservation is required when placing a reservation. This is the case with, for example, our website or via Booking.com. With Expedia or Hotels.nl there is no direct prepayment. The full amount of the reservation may be debited from your credit card at any time between the booking and the check-in date. Or the amount can also be paid on location at arrival.
If you have not fully paid your reservation during your booking, you must pay the full amount upon arrival at the property.
* The tourist tax must also be paid on location (see article 3)
If we do not receive your payment(s) due in full or on time, we have the right to assume that you wish to cancel your reservation. In this case, we have the right to keep all amounts that have been paid or must be paid on that date, and you must pay the cancellation fees that we have given you when booking.
Payments for all possible add-ons, such as “breakfast” or “late checkout” are added online directly to the stated amount. If the addons are requested in a different way besides the reservation, you must pay this directly to the B&B before you check out.
The price of your reservation and the conditions for which payment, changes and cancellations have been made, may depend on your room, booking type, breakfast, additional facilities to be booked and other factors and you will be informed of these conditions upon booking process. Please note that all rates depend on availability!
Our prices depend on high & low season rates and last-minute deals. The price of your reservation will be confirmed at the time of booking and will not be adjusted in the event of exchange rate fluctuation between the date you booked your stay and your arrival date. You must always check the price at the time of booking!
The price announced on the website is without breakfast, but it includes free WI-FI, the use of a Nespresso machine with different coffee cups in the room, the use of teakettle with ‘Tea Quiero’ tea in the room and there is a possibility to wash your clothes.
Unless stated otherwise on our website, the price for a room does not include extra services and the use of the various facilities. The stated price is also excluding tourist tax. The tourist tax (mentioned on the page with rates) must be paid directly on location. The rate for the tourist tax varies per municipality. For the town of Lisse the tourist tax is € 2,48 per person per night.
We reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. We will inform our guests as soon as we become aware of a specific error.
The price of our confirmed reservation is at all times subject to the correction of errors and changes resulting from government action such as changes in tax or other changes imposed by the government and changes in the exchange rates of currencies. We reserve the right to pass on increases in the price of your reservation to you as a result.
Certain offers that are available on the internet are bookable exclusively on the internet, in other words, only online and never at the reception on location.
We strive to guarantee that all information and prices on both our website and our other booking channels are accurate. However, changes and errors can sometimes occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other data in this case. You must check the current price and all other details regarding your chosen reservation before booking a room. Prices per booking channel may differ from the prices on our website, due to possible discount promotions that are active on one or more online travel agnecies (OTA).
5. Changes Made by Customer
If you wish to make changes to your confirmed reservation, you must immediately contact The Oude Pastorie or the relevant booking channel / OTA (Online Travel Agency) by telephone. The procedure is described in your booking confirmation. Although we will do our best to help you, we should warn you that we cannot always fulfill your needs. If changes need to be made, you are liable for the payment of any additional costs that are associated to the change(s) of your reservation. In addition, always check the specific conditions described to you at the time of booking.
If you have booked via a booking channel / OTA (Online Travel Agency) and you want to make changes to the reservation, you must contact the relevant booking channel immediately. They can make the changes in their system, whereby they can determine the possible amount of canceled overnight stay(s) can refund to you and adjust the reservation automatically in our system.
6. Cancelation by Customer
If you want to cancel your confirmed reservation, you must follow the procedure stated in your booking confirmation.
Please note that certain reservations cannot or will only be refunded partially in the event of cancellation once the reservation has been confirmed. This is the case with non-refundable reservations, which sometimes offer booking channels as a lower price than normal, but unfortunately cannot be canceled free of charge. If the reason for your cancellation is covered by the terms and conditions of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these costs through them or the Online Travel Agency (OTA).
For more information about cancelations, we advise you to read our Cancelation Conditions document on our website: www.deoudepastorielisse.nl
7. Shortening stay
If you decide to check out earlier than planned, we cannot refund the costs of the unused remaining time of your reservation, or be liable for any additional costs that you incur for this. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer coverage for shortening, so we recommend that you submit any claims directly to them.
Should you have to cancel or shorten your stay of several nights early because of a valid reason or emergency, then you are advised to contact the relevant booking channel (OTA) or if it has been booked through our website, you can contact The Oude Pastorie itself. In case of canceling your stay of several nights, only the first night or the night(s) spent at the Bed&Breakfast will be charged. If this is the case, decisions from The Oude Pastorie may deviate from the cancelation conditions, but unfortunately this offers no guarantee that the total amount can be refunded.
For more information about shortening your stay, we advise you to read our Cancelation Conditions document on our website: www.deoudepastorielisse.nl
8. Cancelation by The Oude Pastorie
We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by notifying you in written form (including e-mail), if you fail to pay all costs related to your reservation in full and on time. Cancelation may also be the result of disobeying or breaking the rules of the Booking Conditions. This is in addition to other legal rights that we have as a result of your non-compliance with our agreement.
In exceptional circumstances, we may be obligated to cancel your reservation due to “force majeure”, which means “forces beyond our control”. If this happens, we will inform you as soon as possible and:
- If you have paid already, we will refund your costs
- If you have not yet paid for your reservation, you do not have to do this anymore
We regret the possibility that we cannot contribute to any expenses or losses that you incur due to such a change or cancellation.
For the purpose of this clause, ‘force majeure’ is defined as any event that we could not foresee, even with the most care. As result, we cannot provide a room or guarantee a safe stay to you and fellow guests. These events may include: war, threat of war, civil unrest, terrorist activities, the consequences of the threat of such activities, riot, act of a government or other national or local authority including port authorities, labor dispute, closure, natural or nuclear disasters, fire, chemical or biological disasters and adverse weather, sea, ice and river conditions and such events beyond our control.
For more information about cancelations, we advise you to read our Cancelation Conditions document on our website: www.deoudepastorielisse.nl
We strongly recommend that you take out a personal travel insurance or a (continuous) cancellation insurance for each member of your group. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance coverage that you purchase matches your personal needs in case of a cancellation. The Oude Pastorie does not check any insurance policies.

Please read the following article carefully.
The rooms are located on the 2nd floor of The Oude Pastorie building in Lisse. There are two stairs present in the building.

If the complaint cannot be resolved and you wish to continue with your complaint, you must submit a formal written statement of your complaint within 7 days after the end of your stay via: email@example.com, stating your reservation number and all other relevant details. This allows us to identify your problems quickly and resolve them as quickly as possible.
