Your Stay and VAT
Belle Tout Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast prices are normally quoted per room and are inclusive of VAT @ 20%
From 15 July 2020 to 12 January 2021 the UK Government has generously reduced the rate of VAT from 20% to 5% for hotels and restaurants etc. This concession is allowed to benefit the hotel OR the client. The owners of Belle Tout wish to pass on this discount in full to our esteemed guests.
Effectively, this means that any payment for accommodation, partially or in full, made during this period, will benefit accordingly, even if it relates to a stay to be taken beyond the 12 January 2021 deadline.
This will mean a temporary reduction in the cost of a 2 night stay at Belle Tout Lighthouse, of between £40 and £65. We are very happy to convey this good news to you, that hopefully will encourage more to enjoy the unique Belle Tout Lighthouse Experience.
With all good wishes,
David and Barbara Shaw.
