Unsatisfacory response to Covid

Owner's reply:
The 3 properties were booked in June 2019 for the Open Golf tournament which was due to be held in St Andrews in 2021 and was subsequently cancelled (not July 2020 as noted in the review). The accommodation being provided was not part of a golf holiday package. As the booking was made so much in advance, as a gesture of goodwill, payment of the deposit was staged and at the time of cancellation, only 50% of the deposit had actually been paid. Our terms and conditions state that the deposit is non-refundable and guests are advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance. The tournament was moved to 2022 and the guests were offered the chance to move the booking to 2022 but this offer was not accepted. As a small business operating during very difficult times, we did not feel it possible to refund the 50% deposit paid which should have been covered through holiday cancellation insurance.
