If you give us 14 days notice of cancellation you will receive a full refund of the deposit.
If you give less notice the deposit will be retained. 

What if I have paid in full and either do not arrive or cancel at the last minute(day or two before)?
If you have made a pre payment and either do not arrive or give us very short notice of cancellation then the amount of the refund will be discussed depending on the circumstances and the length of the booking.

As a guide:
For  bookings up to one week, you would receive a full refund less one night.
