  • Hi, I really like your hotel and would like to book my only concern is the non-refundable price as it is a better price. We have a cruise and flights booked so we don't plan on cancelling however with covid?? Can the booking be moved to another date if the need arises? We are coming from Australia.

    Non refundable booking would be amendable up to 14 days prior to arrival.
