Please note in the case of multiple person bookings whilst we make every effort to put all members of your travelling party in the same room if it's available, it's not guaranteed, particularly if you are booking close to your arrival date. We recommend booking at least 1 week prior to your arrival to help minimize the chance of being separated into different rooms.
