When I arrived the Expedia booking was not showing up on Avalon's records. Seems my booking was being processed at exactly the same time as they were selling the room to someone else. However Avalon coped very well with the situation by sorting out within an hour a unit in the process of refurbishment so that we had somewhere to stay. They handled it very well and we were most grateful.
