  • firstly my partner and i are planning an anniversary night away from home, is this ok.. and secondly i don't actually have photo ID will this be a problem?

    Hello. I'm afraid that due to the current situation we are limited in who we can check in. such as essential workers, people travelling on business or who would otherwise be homeless etc. I'm afraid we cannot check in leisure travellers.
