We booked at the Shangri-La Hotel as I was racing Ironman Cairns with my supporting crew (husband and daughter). We secured the booking with a special fare, knowing that it was non-refundable but who would cancel his hotel accommodation when you've been training really hard for the past 4 months to race the event. Well, it was certainly not our intention to do so. A few days before the race I was hit by a dog and the injuries were bad enough to force me to pull out of the Ironman. I rang soon after the hotel to explain about the circumstances.The management staff was kind enough to refund our booking. First class service indeed.
