We booked an Urban King room and were provided a disabled room with no balcony. This should have been highlighted as we would have chosen alternative accommodation.

Hi Russell, I am sorry to hear that your stay fell short of your expectations on this occasion. Our accesible rooms do make up part of our Urban room inventory though the do have a resort view which some guests prefer. On most occasions we are able to allocate rooms around this or an alternative room can be found if brought to the Front Desks attention. I'm sorry that these options were not made available to you. We will be sure to use this as an opportunity to improve on our communication. Thank you for the feedback.
