Can I amend my booking?

We understand that you may want to amend your booking. Amendments are made on a booking by booking basis and though we are trying to accommodate wherever we can, however, this may not always be possible. We will consider both government restrictions and guests’ personal circumstances when reviewing booking amendments.
