account within the timeframe specified at clause 7.1.4, then you are making
an offer to us to include your Accommodation through the websites of the
relevant Partner. We are under no obligation to accept that offer, but the
Supplementary Terms will be incorporated into the Contract (and legally bind you)
when we send you an email confirming that we have accepted your offer. The
relevant Supplementary Terms will remain binding upon you until you have
opted-out of making your Accommodation available via the relevant Partner’s
website, and the last Guest booking made via that Partner’s website at your
Accommodation has been completed.
From time to time we or our Partners may suggest promotional policies or special
offers which we consider may be attractive to Guests booking through Staylists.
You may choose to include these within the Information at your sole discretion,
and it is your responsibility to ensure that you are happy with them before you
choose to include them within the Information.
Once you choose to include any suggested policies or offers within the Information,
they form a part of the Information and you are responsible for honouring any
Reservations made in accordance with these suggested policies or offers, and neither
we nor our Partners take any responsibility for any Reservations booked in accordance
with the suggested policies of offers.
Neither we nor our Partners take any responsibility if any suggested policies and
offers do not result in increased Reservations or if you feel that you have received
fewer Reservations as a result of choosing to include any of these policies or offers
in your Information.
By making a Reservation through Staylists, the Guest enters into a
direct and legally binding contract with you in relation to the
(the "Contract for Accommodation")
which comprises and
incorporates by reference the Information provided in relation to the
Accommodation at the time the Reservation is made and the information
provided by the Guest when making the Reservation. Accordingly, you
are responsible for ensuring that the Information includes all of the
terms and conditions which you wish to form a part of the Contract
for Accommodation (as additional terms cannot be added and the terms
cannot be changed once a Guest has made a Reservation without the
When a Reservation is made, you will be notified of that Reservation,
and all information provided by the Guest will be made available to you
via the PMS.
Once a Reservation has been made, you are responsible for providing the
Guest with temporary accommodation at the Accommodation and all other
goods and services included in the Reservation in accordance with the
Contract for Accommodation.
If you are unable to honour the Reservation in accordance with the
Contract for Accommodation, you are responsible to the Guest for:
ensuring that the Guest is accommodated (and any others in respect
of whom the Reservation has been made are accommodated, together
with the Guest) in similar accommodation to the Accommodation (of
the same standard or higher) in close vicinity of the Accommodation;
arranging private transport for the Guest (and any others in respect
of whom the Reservation has been made) to the alternative
accommodation, at no additional cost to the Guest; and
any additional costs reasonably incurred (or expected to be
incurred) by the Guest (and any others in respect of whom the
Reservation has been made) as a result of your failure to honour the
Reservation including, but not exclusively, any additional costs of
the alternative accommodation and the costs of any meals, amenities
or other extras that you were due to provide; and
any reasonable compensation that may be expected by the Guest as a
result of your failure to comply with Contract for Accommodation
and/or your obligations under this clause 8.4.
You are responsible for resolving all complaints and disputes relating
to the Accommodation or the Contract for Accommodation in an appropriate
and timely manner, and neither we nor Inn Style shall have any
obligation or liability towards any Guest (or any others in respect of
whom a Reservation has been made) for any failure by you to honour the
Contract for Accommodation or resolve any such complaint or dispute.
In the event that we receive any correspondence from a Guest in relation
to a Reservation at your Accommodation, we will ask the Guest to contact
you directly and will use reasonable endeavours, during Normal Business
Hours, to notify you of any such correspondence as soon as reasonably
possible. In the event that we notify you of any such correspondence,
you are required to confirm to us promptly that you are responding
appropriately to the Guest.
In the event that we receive continued correspondence from any Guest on
the basis that they have not received an appropriate response from you,
you acknowledge and accept that, in order to protect our reputation,
we may seek to resolve the matter with the Guest in any manner that we
consider to be reasonable in the circumstances, provided always that we
shall not compensate any Guest for any amount greater than the total
value of the relevant Reservation without your prior consent.
You are responsible for collecting all payments from Guests in respect
of each Reservation in accordance with the terms of the Contract for
Accommodation. We are not liable in the event that any Guest fails to
pay any amount due.
You agree to pay to us a commission on each Reservation ("Commission") in accordance with the Supplementary Terms of the Partner through whom
the Reservation was made.
In the event that a Reservation is made through www.staylists.com,
rather than through a Partner:
Commission will be calculated as 10% of the total value of the
Reservation, including all applicable taxes.
Commission for each Reservation shall accrue upon the Guest’s
expected date of departure at the Accommodation.
On the last day of each month we will invoice you for all Commission
which has accrued in the month, plus applicable VAT, and will send you
a copy of the invoice by email to the email address that you have
registered with us. All invoices are payable on presentation and,
where possible, payment will be collected by Direct Debit using the bank
details that you provide to us (or our third party payment provider)
from time to time. In the event that we are unable to collect any
Commission payments by Direct Debit, we will contact you to arrange an
alternative payment method.
You are responsible for ensuring that all contact and bank details that
you have provided to us are up to date and accurate at all times.
Your failure to provide an up to date accurate email address or bank
details does not affect your obligation to pay any Commission due to us.
In the event that any Commission has not been paid within 8 days of
the due date for payment (for any reason), we reserve the right to
suspend your Accommodation from Staylists (which means that it will not
be visible through Staylists, on our website or on any of our Partners'
websites), but which suspension shall not affect your obligations under
these Terms) until payment has been received by us in cleared funds.
In the event of a dispute as to the amount of Commission payable, the
records maintained by Staylists shall be final and conclusive.
In certain circumstances, e.g. in the event that you do not use a
Staylists Compatible PMS, we may, from time to time, charge you a fee
(which may require a one-off payment or a number of regular payments)
to make your Accommodation available for reservation through Staylists
We will notify you of any Integration Fees payable (or any changes to
any Integration Fees payable) either prior to our acceptance of your
application to join Staylists pursuant to clause 2.1 above or at any
other time prior to any such Integration Fees becoming payable.
In the event that you are not happy to pay the Integration Fees notified
to you, you may either:
promptly withdraw your application made pursuant to clause 2.1 above
(prior to its acceptance by us), in writing, with immediate effect;
terminate the Contract with immediate effect in accordance with
clause 18.1.2 below, in which case the provisions of clause 19
In the event that you do not withdraw your application or terminate the
Contract in accordance with this clause 10.4, your continued use of
Staylists shall be deemed an acceptance of the obligation to pay the
Integration Fees notified to you.
Changes and Cancellations
You accept that Guests may request changes or cancellations to their
Reservation in accordance with terms of the Contract for Accommodation.
If Staylists has not received details of your cancellation policy via
the Staylists Compatible PMS (or as otherwise agreed), the Contract for
Accommodation shall, subject to the Supplementary Terms, default to
permitting Guests to cancel the Accommodation without charge up to 48
hours before the earliest time they can check-in.
You may not cancel any Reservation. All cancellations must be
communicated by the Guest through Staylists.
In the event that a Guest cancels a Reservation you may only charge the
Guest the amount due to you in accordance with the Contract for

not enter into any other arrangement with the Guest to fulfil the
cancelled Reservation or any part of it which circumvents or
otherwise undermines these Terms.

negligent or wilful misconduct.
If any third party makes a claim, or notifies an intention to make a

notice of the terms of settlement (to the extent legally possible),
but without obtaining the Indemnifying Party’s consent) if the
Indemnified Party reasonably believes that failure to settle the
Claim would be prejudicial in any material respect to the Indemnified
Party (or, where we are the Indemnified Party, Staylists, Inn Style
any of our Partners, or any other owner of accommodation made available
for reservation through Staylists);
give the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors
access at reasonable times
(on reasonable prior notice) to its premises and its officers,

Indemnifying Party such amounts as shall
ensure that the net receipt, after tax, to the Indemnified Party
in respect of the
payment is the same as it would have been were the payment not
subject to tax.

party, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), for breach of
statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with these
Terms for loss of profits, loss of sales or business, loss of
agreements or contracts, loss of anticipated savings, loss of or damage
to goodwill, loss of use or corruption of software, data or information;

limited to the amount of Commission paid by you to us under the terms
of these Terms in the 12 month period immediately preceding the act
or omission giving rise to the liability.
Except to the extent expressly provided in these Terms, we do not make
any representation or give any warranties in relation to Staylists or
our obligations under these Terms. To the extent permissible by law,
all implied terms, representations and warranties (including warranties
regarding quality and fitness for purpose) are excluded.

place appropriate insurance in respect of your obligations as an
operator of the Accommodation and in respect of your obligations and
(potential) liabilities under these Terms.
Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either
party may terminate the Contract:
by giving the other party at least 14 days’ written notice
(unless such other notice period has been agreed between us
in writing); and
with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party
if the other party:
commits a material breach of any of these Terms which breach is
irremediable or (if such breach is remediable) fails to remedy
that breach within a period of 14 days after being notified in
writing to do so;
repeatedly breaches any of these Terms in such a manner as to
reasonably justify the opinion that its conduct is inconsistent
with it having the intention or ability to give effect to
suspends, or threatens to suspend, payment of its debts or is
unable to pay its debts as they fall due or admits inability to
pay its debts or (being a company or limited liability
partnership) is deemed unable to pay its debts within the
meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986; or

sense of having a serious effect on the benefit which the
terminating party would otherwise derive, or any potential liability
that the terminating party may suffer, under these Terms.
In deciding whether any breach is material no regard shall be had
to whether it occurs by some accident, mishap, mistake or
Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, we may
terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice
to you if:
you fail to pay any amount due under the Contract on the due date for
payment and you remain in default for 30 days or more after being
notified in writing to make such payment.
Consequences of Termination
On termination or expiry of the Contract:
we shall use reasonable endeavours to remove your Accommodation
from Staylists as quickly as possible (and in any event within three
working days); and
you shall immediately pay us all outstanding unpaid Commission and
any interest thereon and continue to honour any Reservations made
prior to the date of termination or removal of the Accommodation
from Staylists, whichever is the later, and pay all Commission due
on those Reservations, each in accordance with these Terms, and we
shall no longer have any obligations to you.
Any provision of these Terms that expressly or by implication is
