3.3 CONDUCT

a. General: The room hirer is responsible for their own conduct, as well as the conduct of their client(s) at all times. This includes the area outside the front door of the building including garden and driveway.

The conduct should be of a professional nature, which is conducive to the nature of the service that the Coach House Hub provides, incorporating a high level of respect for all other users of the building.

This includes, but is not exclusive to, the following specific areas:

b. Noise: In order to preserve the quiet environment for counselling and training, Hirers and their clients must speak softly in the areas immediately outside the counselling and training rooms. The use of mobile phones is only permitted in the reception area. Whilst in all other areas of the building, please switch your mobile phone off.

c. Room Care: The Coach House Hub aims to maintain rooms in a pleasant and comfortable condition. If you break or discover broken furniture, fixtures and fittings, please report it as soon as possible to a member of staff.

If drinks are taken into other areas any spillage should be cleaned up immediately failure to do this will result in a cleaning charge. Lighting naked flames or candles is not allowed in any room.

d. Room Use: A room booking is for a specific room. You cannot switch rooms or extend your time, without receiving prior approval from reception. Using a room without booking will result in the occupiers being asked to leave immediately.

Please ensure you allow enough time to leave the room you have booked in good time and in good order. Users must respect the bookings made by others and should time their sessions so that subsequent users have free access at the start of their booked slot. It is not reasonable for bookers to have to ask the previous occupant to vacate the room. Where this is not observed we may have to withdraw booking rights.
