Day-Use for Photography


Only guests of the Royal Elephant Hotel and Conferencing & Function guests may use the Hotel and Grounds for Photoshoots.

Because of this, a photographer will need to book a room for Day-Use should they want to shoot at the Royal Elephant. If no rooms are available, we are too busy to be able to accommodate you for a photo shoot.

Even if you do not intend to use a room to shoot in, we still require the room booking and you can use the room as a location to prep in (styling, Hair and Make-up) as well as a storage area for wardrobe and equipment not used for a specific part of your shoot (it helps to keep clutter in public areas to a minimum and also reduces the chance of theft or other losses.

a Day-Use room allows…

  • Usage for 1 to 6 hours,
  • Checkout no later than 5pm – Delays in Checkout will switch your room to an overnight stay and create a new booking for you.
  • no sleepover allowed, 
  • a max of 6 people (photographers, assistants, stylists and models all included)

You may also shoot in hotel public spaces, as long as they are not occupied by other guests, or interfering with the safety and/or tranquillity of other guests and patrons. Please ask the Media Manager if you are unsure!
