Guests anticipating arrival outside of reception hours must contact 03 8341 6100 or via email during reception hours at least 2 days before arrival. The pre-authorisation will be applied to your credit card. Access instructions will then be emailed to you. Adequate identification (current Driver’s licence, passport or other form of photo ID) is required at time of check-in to verify your identity. The manager reserves the right to refuse entry if Identification is inadequate.

24/7 After hours phone support

**LATE ARRIVALS/ AFTER HOURS**
We usually send you the "SELF CHECK IN" Instruction to your mobile phone or email address but with conditions. Please contact us as early as possible so we could arrange the necessary documentation from you such as images of your ID (to verify your identity) and Credit Card (to prevent fraud), we will then match the details to your booking profile. Once verified and done, we will send you the "SELF CHECK IN" Instruction which will detail the security pin code for the Front Entrance, your room number, and location to collect your Arrival Card (in which your room pin is given).

For your peace of mind, We have a 24/7 Customer Support Services to answer your after hours inquiries should you have any issues.

If we are unable to contact you through the mobile number you provided to us, you will have to provide those ID/ Credit details at the time of your arrival by calling our 24/7 customer support number.

Furthermore, if your credit card is declined and we are unable to contact you to obtain the above information, after hour entry to the premises will be declined until information and fund are obtained.

Payments
You will be charged the total invoice amount at the time the reservation is made. You can pay via MasterCard, Visa, bank account, and Cash. At the time of writing, VISA/ MASTER Credit card have a 3% surcharge, and AMEX/ DINERS have a 4% surcharge. If you wish to void the surcharge and wish to pay Cash, we will refund the full amount to your card once we received cash payment from you. If you are paying by Cheque, it must be banked and cleared 10 days prior to your arrival. Prices are quoted in Australian dollars, and are on a per-apartment per-night basis and the total booking amount will be based on the date period confirmed.

Pre-authorisation
Guests are required to present a MasterCard or Visa card for a $200 pre-authorisation on check in. The pre-authorisation may be $250 or over, depending on circumstances. This pre-authorization validates the presented card, and acts as a bond to cover (but not limited to) lost key/s, breakages, damages, smoking in the room, bringing pets, excessive cleaning and helps protect both the cardholder and Alston Apartments from possible fraud. The pre-authorised amount is set aside on behalf of Alston Apartments by the card issuer i.e. your financial institution and is released up to 4-5 business days after activation, depending on the issuer. Note a pre-authorisation is not a charge. Once a pre-authorisation has been made, Alston Apartments cannot lower or release the authorised amount until check out. The pre-authorisation will affect your available funds balance or spending limit. For further information refer to your card issuer. If you do not have a Credit Card, or there is insufficient fund in your Credit Card, we will require a Cash Bond of minimum $200 - $250+, depending on the nature of the booking.

Bond (credit card or Cash) - when do we forfeit and deduct your Bond?
The Bond or security deposit in the form of cash or credit card pre-authorisation is collected to cover any incidentals that were caused by you or anyone in your apartment during your stay. If the damages/ incidents/ monetary loss exceeds the bond collected, you agreed to indemnify us for the costs of repair. On reasonable ground, 3 quotations will be obtained and we will elect the lowest price as the value of compensation. If you refuse to pay, an official report will be filed to the Victoria Police for certification purposes together with your Driver’s License, and a solicitor will be appointed to commence the debt recovery process. We especially pay special attentions to “smoking” in the apartment, pets, parties, and excessive noise. Any evidence of smoking in the room or bringing Pets to the apartment will result in immediate forfeiture of the bond. As our staffs are non-smokers, we are extremely sensitive to unusual smell. Minimum 2 Witnesses will be required to verify the smell if there is objection from you. Any disagreement will move the matter to Consumers Affairs. Incidentals such as lost key/s, breakages, damages, smoking in the room, bringing pets, carpet damages due to pet and cigarette burns, excessive cleaning, and resolving other disorderly behaviours, will all be recovered from the Bond.

False Fire Alarm incidents.
In the event that you (or anyone in your apartment) accidently triggered the Building’s fire alarm and subsequently causing the arrivals of the Melbourne Fire Brigade (MFB) Vehicles to show up, and later MFB deemed the incident as a “false alarm”, You agreed to indemnify Alston Apartments hotel for the penalties/ costs associated to the false alarm issued by the Melbourne Fire Brigade. Please refer to the Compendium on how you can prevent yourself from activating the building’s fire alarm. In summary, it is your responsibility to switch on the rangehood when you are cooking, and never open the apartment’s door to let out excessive cooking fumes unless there is actual fire. If the Building’s fire alarm is triggered due to these reasons you agreed to pay for the costs issued by the MFB. At present and prices may subject to change, each MFB truck costs $531 per 15 mins per vehicle. As part of standard procedure, two trucks usually show up.

To further reinforce on the above Terms and conditions above, to ensure the comfort of every guest we further emphasize the following policies:-

STRICTLY NO SMOKING in the apartment, the balcony, patio/ terrace, Fire exit stairways, and the air space within the building are all strictly non-smoking. Smoking in the apartment damages the ambiance of the room: the smell stains the furniture/ air conditioning unit/ and damages the carpet, and causes the next Guests to suffer an asthmatic reaction. Cleaners often required 2 hours to completely neutralize the air. Hence, a minimum of $150 Fee will be charged to your credit card/ or deducted from the Bond if a slight cigarette smell is noted in the room. However, you may smoke outside the property (outside the main entrance) or take the Lift to level 3 and smoke in the Open space terrace. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT ANY TIME – pets have damaged and stained our carpet in the past with their scratches and droppings, resulting to unnecessary clean up and repair cost, therefore we reserved the right to inspect and enter your apartment (whilst you are away) if we suspect that you are hiding or keeping pet(s) in our apartment. Any evidence concluding that a pet was present in the apartment, we will deduct/forfeit $200 from your credit card/ or Cash Bond per night. We do not negotiate on the degree of damages.

NO PARTY & NO EXCESSIVE NOISE – Please note Alston/ Drummond Apartments are for “accommodation use” only. Our intent, as an accommodation provider, is for all our guests to enjoy and experience a pleasant rest at our property, as a result, we enforce a strict NO PARTY policy. Any person(s) found to be creating excessive noise, having a party in their apartment or exceeding the numbers of permitted guests will be evicted without refund. Regardless, all visitors must leave by 11pm each night and only the registered overnight guests (limits apply) are permitted to be in the apartment after this time. Alston Apartments Hotel may evict a guest or visitor without warning and Police will be contacted if a Guests/party/ group refuses to cooperate and continues to create unreasonable and excessive noise after 11 PM (despite our friendly and courteous warning), no refund will be given if this situation occurred and full Bond will be forfeited for this disorderly behaviour. We ask that you contact the Reception should you experience excessive noise from other guests/ visitors.
