French term or phrase: il faut appeler pour les arrivees en dehors de 16:00-18:00
The text is talking about a hotel. There is just this phrase, by itself, no surrounding context. Could it mean, "You can arrive anytime except between 4pm and 6 pm." ? Thanks

English translation:Please telephone if you are going to arrive at any time other than between 4 pm and 6 pm.
Explanation:
You are not far off.
It does not mean that you cannot arrive outside these times but that you have to call if you intend to arrive outside the times stipulated.

"Il faut appeler" = It is necessary to
