Damage and Cleaning

In the event of any damage or additional extra cleaning is required beyond the normal wear & tear or use, during your stay with us an additional charge may be incurred.

Excessive Noise

For the comfort and enjoyment of all our guests we have a strict no party policy. Any noisy gatherings or excessive noise likely to disturb our guests may result in an immediate request to vacate your room.


We have a no smoking strict policy within all rooms of our property for the enjoyment and comfort of all our guests. We have provided an ashtray on the deck if required. There will be a charge for the sanitizing of any rooms and any lost income as result of smoking, including vaping or e-cigarettes inside.

Pet Policy

For your comfort and that of our other guests, Schist Rock Studios has a no pets policy within the property, including carpark areas. Should we discover a pet has been staying, the room will require a special clean as some of our guests have allergies to animals, and a fee of $250 will be applied. Please respect this policy.

Charging Bike Batteries

Due to safety reasons, we have a strict policy of only charging E-Bike batteries in the garage area. Please do not charge your battery inside your room. Under no circumstances are bikes allowed in the room.
