Owner's reply:
Hello Yvonne, You are right - there has been a double booking and our channel manager had failed us. I have personally called you to explain in detail, unfortunately there was nothing else I could do (I was on holiday and it ruined my time too). My sincere apologies for having to cancel your 2 night stay - This is the first and last time we have had a double booking, it has been 10 years so far. Ian
