Oh TwinMummyAus, I don't know where to start with apologies. The room you were allocated did NOT have a usable sofabed. You should not have been placed in that room and both reservations and housekeeping teams were aware that sofa could NOT be used as a sofabed. Unfortunately mistakes can happen and we are extremely sorry this one slipped through... More
