III. How and under what conditions can services be used:
1.) Ordering a service:
Upon a Guest’s oral or written request for a quote, the Service Provider provides a written price quote. This request for a quote shall not constitute a room booking. Written price quotes are prepared based on available capacity at the time of the request. Upon the Guest’s written order, the Service Provider shall confirm the room types still available for booking.
A contract is created solely after the Service Provider’s written confirmation of the Guest’s written booking (made by e-mail, via the Hotel’s website, etc.), and is therefore considered a contract concluded in writing. The contract on the use of accommodation services is valid for a fixed period. Amendments and/or additions to the contract require a written request from the Guest and a written confirmation by the Service Provider.
The contact details of the Hotel can be found in its brochures and on the online portal available at www.hotelpalota.hu (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”). Orders shall contain the Guest’s name and address, the exact date and time of arrival and departure, the requested room type, the number and age of children arriving with the adult(s), and the exact description of the required services (meals, programs).
2.) The Service:
2.1. In all cases, hotel rooms can only be ordered together with the services included in the “Hotel Palota Basic Package”. Prices, deals and packages published by Hotel Palota always include the services included in the “Hotel Palota Basic Package”. The services provided as part of the “Hotel Palota Basic Package” are specified in Annex I to these General Terms and Conditions. For corporate customers and company events, the parties may agree on special terms and conditions in a separate agreement.
Guests may use the services provided by the Hotel at their own risk, in conformity with the terms and conditions published by the Hotel.
Spa and wellness services may only be used in compliance with the Hotel’s Wellness Centre Rules. These Rules are posted on the premises.
Prior reservation is required to use wellness treatments. Reserved services may be cancelled according to the published cancellation policy. Where appropriate, the Service Provider may charge a cancellation fee.
When a service order is placed with the Service Provider by a third party (hereinafter referred to as “Intermediary”) on behalf of the Guest, the terms of cooperation shall be governed by the agreement between the Service Provider and that Intermediary. In this case, the Service Provider is not required to check whether the third party legally represents the Guest.
2.3. Validity of promotional offers:
Promotional or discount offers – with the exception of Daily Room Rates – are available to Guests only up to a limited room capacity.
2.4. Terms of termination, cancellation, and modification:
Guests commit to inform the Hotel in writing of any cancellation, modification or any other change of the services ordered by them before starting to use the service concerned. Individual orders may be cancelled penalty-free up to three days before arrival, unless otherwise specified in the agreement concluded with the Guest. If a Guest does not show up or fails to cancel their order by the relevant deadline, one day’s room rate as specified in the order shall be payable as penalty. For group orders or orders placed by travel agencies or companies, cancellation conditions and penalties will be set out in a separate agreement.
If a Guest made a prepayment to guarantee their booking and fails to arrive on the planned day of arrival, nor do they send a written cancellation, the Service Provider will keep the entire pre-paid amount as specified in the contract as no-show penalty.
If a Guest has not guaranteed their booking by means of a prepayment, credit card pre-authorisation, or other means specified in the contract, the Service Provider’s obligation to provide a service shall cease after 18:00 local time on the planned day of arrival, i.e. the booked room can be assigned by the Service Provider to another guest for the remaining duration, unless the Guest makes arrangements to keep the room.
The Hotel only accepts cancellations and modifications in writing. Written cancellations must be received by the Hotel by the specified deadline.
If the fulfilment of the contract is impossible due to force majeure or any other unforeseeable external events not attributable to the Customer, the Customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract without paying a cancellation fee (penalty). The Customer shall furnish credible proof of the existence of force majeure or other reasons when making the declaration of withdrawal. The Service Provider only accepts evidence from a public and official source (e.g. an official travel restriction issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the specific country, an airline’s flight cancellation notice etc., which can be independently verified by the Service Provider (i.e. a third party)).
2.5. Prices; Payment terms
The Hotel’s current prices are published on its website.
The Service Provider may change its published prices without prior notice (for example, due to introducing package deals or other discounts). If a Guest has booked accommodation and the Service Provider has confirmed it in writing, the Service Provider may no longer change the price of that accommodation. The Service Provider’s current prices are available on the Hotel’s website, price lists are available also in the Hotel’s various departments.
The Service Provider provides a “best price guarantee”. The basic condition for enforcing this guarantee is that one must have a valid and confirmed booking made through the Service Provider’s official website. If you find a lower price for the same room elsewhere, the Hotel will match the lower price under the same booking conditions as confirmed by the Hotel.
These conditions are as follows:
• The price is valid for the same hotel
• The price is valid for the same arrival and departure dates as shown in the booking • The number and age of the guests are the same
• The room type and the number of rooms are the same
• There is no difference in the quantity and content of the additional services ordered
When publishing prices, the Service Provider shall indicate any taxes (VAT, tourist tax) included in the price and the statutory tax rates at the time of making the offer. The prices published include the statutory VAT, but do not include tourist tax, which shall be paid on site. The Service Provider, with prior notification, will pass on any additional burdens due to the amendment of the applicable tax laws (regarding VAT and tourist tax) to the contracting party using its services.
The price of the services ordered can be paid in advance by bank transfer or online payment, or at the premises in cash, by bank card, by Széchenyi Recreation Card (hereinafter referred to as “SZÉP Card”) in accordance with the current legislation, or by means of a voucher issued by the Hotel.
Vouchers issued by the Hotel (so-called Value Vouchers and vouchers for two- or three-night stays) are considered multi-purpose vouchers under the VAT Act currently in force. Upon buying these payment instruments, the buyer of the vouchers does not pay VAT, but VAT is charged when the vouchers are redeemed upon the use of the service. Vouchers cannot be paid by SZÉP Card.
Hotel Palota Lillafüred Kft. (the “Hotel”) reserves the right to request a payment guarantee before the use of the hotel service ordered by the Guest, but at the latest upon the Guest’s arrival. The following payment guarantees are acceptable: credit/debit card pre-authorisation (i.e. temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on the Guest’s credit/debit card), online payment using the Big Fish Payment Gateway, or payment of the ordered service on the spot in cash or cash equivalents accepted by the Hotel, or wire transferring an amount equal to the price of the ordered service to the Hotel’s bank account before starting to use the service. In case of payment by SZÉP Card, in order to use the card legitimately, the Hotel may request payment of the ordered services in advance and presentation of an identity document by the Guest (identity card, driver’s license or passport). Services can be used only after having provided proof of identity. If identification is not possible for any reason beyond the Hotel’s control, the Hotel may refuse to accept payment by SZÉP Card. The Hotel will only accept a SZÉP Card bearing the specific Guest’s name.
In the case of payment by bank transfer, unless otherwise provided by the contract concluded with the Hotel or the reservation agent, the Guest shall transfer the price of the ordered services to the Hotel’s bank account before arrival.
In the case of online payment, the price of the ordered services/booking can be paid by one of the methods indicated below. Payment of the order value becomes due when the order is confirmed by the Hotel.

Although Guests have the option to pay in a currency other than the currency used during booking, the invoice will be issued in the currency shown in the booking.
When issuing an invoice for the amount paid/to be paid, the Service Provider uses the data provided during online booking or, where the booking is made by e-mail, the data provided in the e-mail by the person who made the booking.
The data provided there (name, address, tax number, if necessary) will be included in the “Customer” section of the invoice. Within one day of making a booking, Guests may request changes to the data provided; after this time limit, however, changes are no longer possible.
The Service Provider issues the final invoice based on the data provided at the time of booking.
If two or more Guests (or companies) would like separate invoices issued in their names, please indicate this before invoicing. After the issue of the invoice, the Service Provider is unable to modify it.

In the case of booking a product of the Service Provider subject to special conditions, or group bookings / events, the terms and conditions will be set out in an individual contract.

An extra bed is only available for certain room types.
An extra bed shall be requested from the Service Provider in advance, at the time of booking.

Gift vouchers cannot be combined with other discounts, nor can be used in the excluded periods, even for a surcharge. Vouchers are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash, either by the Hotel or by a third party. Gift vouchers are not transferable in return for payment, may not be resold, or offered on a secondary market (including sales on auction sites). After the end of the redemption period, the voucher loses its validity, unless the Service Provider extends it by means of a unilateral declaration. Vouchers cannot be purchased by SZÉP Card.
2.8. Loyalty program
Only individual regular guests frequently booking the Hotel’s services through its website are allowed to participate in the loyalty program. (A guest is considered an individual guest if they make their booking directly in their own name, without using an intermediary. The following are considered intermediaries: any accommodations intermediary and accommodation booking platform, system or office, partner companies, corporate partners, Hungarian Hotel Association.)
The purpose of our loyalty program is to reward the loyalty of regular guests, providing them with discounts and additional services based on the number of bookings and spending.
The loyalty program is a user-friendly online interface which is easily accessible both from a smartphone or computer. The interface is connected to the booking engine to ensure the ease of data exchange and that bookings and the benefits associated with them can be easily collected and organised. The activities of regular guests (bookings, requests for an offer, use and crediting of loyalty points) can be tracked via the online loyalty interface. Based on the set parameters, the loyalty system activates the discount associated with the specific loyalty level of the Guest, credits loyalty points, and offers the opportunity to redeem these points during the booking.
The Palace Loyalty Program is expected to provide the above conditions from 1 June 2023.
