16. In order to be able to recover any loss at all from us, under clause 15, such loss must have been reasonably foreseeable, both at the time this agreement was entered in to and at the time a claim is made; you acknowledge that it would not be reasonable for us to be responsible for losses that were never in the contemplation of either of us at the time your Booking was confirmed and this agreement was entered in to.
Recovery from Others
17. To the extent that you are able to recover any loss suffered from a third party, such as through travel or other insurance or from anyone else, you agree to use all best endeavours to seek recovery in full from that third party before seeking to recover such loss from us; however, to the extent that you may have a claim, we require you to notify us of the nature and extent of the claim as soon as possible, so that we are aware of the potential claim and, if considered appropriate, have the opportunity to take such steps as we consider necessary to mitigate any loss or damage that you might suffer as a result of it.
No Liability for Indirect or Consequential Financial Loss
18. –Our liability shall only extend to direct losses suffered by you in accordance with clause 15; to the extent that you may suffer any consequential, indirect or economic loss, of whatever nature, including loss of profit or wages, each of these are expressly excluded from the extent of our liability and you hereby waive any rights that you may otherwise have in law to claim such losses or damage.
19. You shall be wholly responsible for all items of property which belong to you and which you have with you during your stay. In the exceptional case of necessary withdrawal of the Suite from rental, the Suite being damaged to such degree that the Booking cannot commence or any alteration to the Suite prior to your occupation – “Skinner Ltd” we will try to alter your Booking under the provisions of clause 11.
Circumstances Beyond Our Control
20. Unless we say otherwise in these booking conditions, unfortunately we will not be legally responsible for any compensation if we are prevented or delayed from carrying out our responsibilities under these booking conditions as a result of events beyond our control. This means an event that we could not, even with all due care, have expected to occur or which we could otherwise have avoided, including but not limited to:
20.1 the breakdown of any equipment or machinery provided or made available to you, adverse weather or local conditions including flood, snow or storm, the inability of any person to deliver or supply goods (including the availability of transportation, food, utilities and other general requirements) for whatever reason, including the difficulty or increased costs in finding workers to provide or deliver such goods and services; and
20.2 strikes and industrial action, lock-out or labour disputes, natural disaster, acts of terrorism, war, riot or civil commotion, sabotage or malicious damage, fire, accidents, pandemics, keeping to any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, local restrictions or bye-laws, local custom or Acts of God.
Maximum Liability to You
21. Save in respect of clause 23, our maximum liability to you, whether in contract, negligence, misrepresentation or otherwise and including any liability we may have to statutory interest, is limited to the total amount of commission actually received by us in relation to the Booking under these Conditions.
22. To the extent and only if we are aware of circumstances described in clause 21, we shall inform you of these in writing, stating that such cause has prevented or delayed us in performing our obligations hereunder, but we shall take all steps that are reasonable and within our power to comply with the provisions of this agreement as fully and promptly as possible.
23. Notwithstanding anything above, no provision of these Conditions shall operate to limit or exclude our liability for fraud or for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or breach of statutory duty.

25. You must arrive after 3pm on the date of your arrival. Please note that these times can be adjusted with prior arrangement with the concierge.
26. Departure until 11am on the date of your departure.
27. In the unlikely event that you have any complaint regarding the Suite you must inform the concierge within 24 hours and in writing (including email). Failure to follow this procedure will mean that “Skinner Ltd” will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate your complaint and take steps to rectify any issues whilst you were in the suite and this may affect your rights under this contract.
28. This agreement is governed by Greek law and the courts of Greece have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
Wifi, Communications and Internet Access
29. The suites have internet connection/WiFi which can be used at no extra charge. WiFi works effectively for checking emails or web pages.
