(Alternatively we sometimes can accept the deposit in cash but please be aware that this is not always possible as we are not always in London on the day of guests departure and would therefore be unable to return cash deposits. Also returning cash deposits to guests with an early check-out - before 11am - will result in a £20 charge to cover peak travel costs for us. A receipt will be issued at Check-In and the money returned at Check-out.)
