I contacted Cantwell House directly and booked two rooms for July 23, 24 2006 and August 8. About a month before arrival I phoned to check how we should check in late at night. I found that they had booked us for June, not July, and there was no availability in July. Accepting that perhaps I could have made a mistake I kept our bookings for August 8, and set about finding another place for the July booking. I was totally stunned when we arrived on the afternoon of August 8 to find that we had been "bumped" because someone else wanted to stay an extra night. They had made arrangements for us to stay at ABBA, which was fine, but I would certainly not book through Cantwell House again. I assumed that they would be especially careful after a "mix-up" at the beginning of the holiday, which in all likelihood was their mistake. It might be a nice place, but having booked there for three nights we never managed to get inside the door!
