You're very welcome. All the numbers direct to the same call centre in the Philippines. I rang the US toll free number via Skype as it saves the 10p/min charge from my UK landline.

When is your stay btw? would like to hear how things go down in the end.
Nice point! It's tomorrow night. I shall update on here how things go...

oh joy...
I'll try, but I never got the standard email about rate verification, so everything at the moment's by verbal communication. I'm about to ring the hotel this minute so if it doesn't get sorted tonight I'll be onto the BRG agent to get something in writing.
