GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

OF THE HOTEL ORCHIDEE AG

All formulations were written in masculine form and apply to both genders.

GENERAL TERMS

The general terms and conditions (T&C) regulate the legal relationship between the customer and Hotel Orchidee AG. Regardless of the type of service, these terms and conditions always refer to a contract. Only the terms and conditions of Hotel Orchidee AG apply that were valid at the time the contract was concluded. By submitting a booking, the customer expressly agrees to these terms and conditions. The general terms and conditions are subject to change at any time.

Should individual provisions of this contract be or become ineffective or void, this shall not affect the effectiveness of the contract or the remaining provisions. Otherwise, the statutory provisions apply.

The contractual partners are the guest (individual or company) and Hotel Orchidee AG. The con-tract for the reservation of rooms or other services comes into effect with the written confirmation by the hotel. Changes to the contract only become binding for Hotel Orchidee AG once they have been confirmed in writing. Unilateral changes or additions to the contract by the guest are not effective.

Letters and e-mails are regarded as written confirmations.

Any additional expenses for the replacement hotel / restaurant will be carried by Hotel Orchidee AG. If the guest rejects the replacement offer, Hotel Orchidee AG will reimburse the services already provided by the guest. Further expenses (e.g. travel expenses) cannot be claimed.
