          I am looking to book a trip with my two sons,travelling from North Wales via train.Obviously there is a time where we will be allowed to access the room,is it possible to leave our cases in the hotel when we arrive so we can go about our day before checking in also is it possible to leave the cases after checking out to finish the remainder of our trip before going home?
