Please contact us should your circumstances require an exception.
A non-refundable deposit of $500 per person is required to secure your reservation. This is most easily done during your online booking process or over the phone with your credit card (Mastercard and Visa only); however, deposit payments may also be sent by cheque, money order, or direct deposit. Your booking will be confirmed in writing after funds have cleared our bank account.
A 10% discount is available for returning guests. For persons on a full Centrelink payment (e.g., Full Pensioner, Disability, etc) a 15% discount is given.. A Centrelink card must be produced on arrival to receive the discount.
If a return guest is also on a full Centrelink payment then a maximum discount of 15% applies.
For the 4-Night package a single discount of 5% is available to return guests or pensioners.
The full remaining balance is payable on or before arrival. We accept cash, cheque, money order, direct deposit, EFTPOS, or credit card (Mastercard and Visa only).
Reservations cancelled or postponed more than 14 days in advance of arrival are fully transferable and must be used within 6 months. Please note that transfers can only be rebooked and redeemed once. Any additional requests for a transfer or rebooking after that is allowable, however will incur your deposit to be forfeited. If you do not redeem your transfer within 6 months, your deposit will be forfeited.
Cancellations within 7-14 days will in addition incur a $100 rebooking fee.
Cancellations less than 7 days from your booking date are not transferable and the deposit is forfeited unless your cancelled booking can be filled by another booking (e.g., someone on our waiting list), in which case your deposit can be applied towards another date within 6 months. We often have a waiting list and it is sometimes possible to fill a vacancy due to a cancellation, but this cannot be guaranteed. There are no refunds or credit given for early departures.
Return transport transfers are available from from Moss Vale, Bowral, or Bomaderry train stations for $75, or $325 from Sydney airport. One-way transfers are half the return price.
Free wifi is available anytime, limited to 400MB per guest per day. Most guests find this more than enough for emails, news headlines and web research, while it protects our limited satellite data plan.
Plan to download/upload any large files, movies, etc. prior to your arrival at Cedarvale. Using video/audio streaming services (e.g. YouTube) on our wifi will quickly use up your 400mb daily allowance.
Most guests really appreciate that there is no reception at the health retreat building. However, it’s just a five minute walk to get coverage in most cases.
Calls may be received on our private guest phone anytime. The phone number is provided to guests upon booking and may then be given to friends, family or work as desired. Calls can also be made from this phone if necessary.
