Also needed please.

As the hotel is booked out on the Saturday night is there another preferred option?
I was born with nothing and unfortunately I still have most of it left.

I've just booked for the Friday & Saturday night, I think if you only want to book the Saturday you have to do it by phone?

If you've got a Garmin Sat. Nav., we may be able exchange/share the route using the GPS devices & SD cards on the day.

You can't book the Saturday only online, this is what John did to book a single night, hope it works for you.
Sullivj wrote:I was able to book 2 nights online. Remember that I only want one, but you can't book the Saturday only.

I then tried to cancel the second unwanted night online, as the reservations team advised me to do, but the system would not let me cancel it.

Instead, I phoned the hotel on 0333 321 1088, and they cancelled the second night for me.

So, Tim and I are booked and confirmed for Saturday night.

Done, perhaps the fairly central, (although Southern) location, is attracting the "day trippers".
