Dogs
The owner/agent reserves the right to charge the full reimbursement cost of additional cleaning if there are dogs present. Dogs are welcome but must be confined to the ground floor and are not allowed on the furniture under any circumstances. Dogs are not to be left unattended at any time.

Snooker Table
The snooker table at Inverbroom has recently been repaired and refurbished. New baize has been fitted. Guests are very welcome to use the table carefully but must take care not to damage the table. In particular:-

ii) The table is only to be used for playing snooker or billiards and no other game or activity whatsoever;

iii) The table must be covered when not being used;

iv) All damage must be reported to Mr. Steven Gow.

The Landlord hopes that you will understand the necessity to draw these matters to your attention – to have the table recovered does not leave much change out of £500 and the Landlord does wish the table to be available undamaged for future guests.
