What were the stipulations for the deposit (i.e is it a % of your total room bill etc)? Is it made in payments or one lump sum?
Thank you for your interest in the Rockhouse. Rockhouse requires where all 34 rooms are booked in order to do a wedding on property. If this requirement cannot be met a minimum of 27 rooms must be booked by wedding guests. CLIENT will be required to fill or pay for a total of 27 rooms where all 34 rooms are not filled or less than 27 rooms are filled. We have policy so we can accommodate smaller, more intimate weddings at the hotel. As long as the wedding group remains small in relation to the size of the hotel there would be no problems. And so we are now making the hotel available for hosting weddings for up to 10 rooms or 20 people. For larger groups than this we will retain the policy of requiring that the whole hotel (34 rooms) be booked. We also continue to have a policy of no more than one wedding in any week to ensure that our team has the time needed to focus on this very special day. The deposit amount which is required to secure a wedding date is US$4000. Rockhouse requires a three nightâ€™s minimum stay. We accept children twelve years and older as we are located on the cliff it dangerous for younger children. Our food and beverage minimum to close our restaurant for an event is $8000 not including tax and service charge. However you also have the option of dining at the pool side the night of the wedding. There isnâ€™t a food and beverage minimum for this area however there is a 50 personâ€™s minimum to close the pool area for a function. The US$4000 deposit will go towards your 50% food deposit as soon as we have finalized menu prices for 2009. All rooms will be held for a minimum of three nights a deposit of 3 nights is required to confirm all reservations. Please advise if you have any alternate dates. Refunds will be made with notice:-
