    As long as she sticks to the obligations placed upon her when booking the room, then she is entirely within her rights to also ask for her rights under such a contract.

    It might be annoying, yes, but so is forking out £74 for a cancellation. That is extortion. It's not like hotels book out every room. No, like airlines, they overbook passengers and in the unlikely event that all the guests/passengers turn up, then they simply bump one or two to a bigger suite or next airplane.

    There is nothing wrong with sticking to the contract, in terms of postponing or cancellation but you attempting to guilt trip someone into paying £74 when they don't have to is simply absurd behaviour.
    I agree ^^^

    Don't be selfish. You have booked and they have a right to charge you for it, by cancelling you deprive them of their money.

    Ring up, apologise, cancel, this happened to me once and they actually did find someone to take the room, so I did get a refund.

    My parent's run a hotel and I can tell you that there is nothing more annoying, disrespectful or dishonest than what some people are suggesting. You agreed to the terms and conditions, including terms of cancellation, when you booked and paid for the room. Not paying for the room might not seem like much to you but to the hotel it could mean the difference between employing staff or not. Lying to the hotel like that is even worse, to move the date then cancel is beyond disrespectful.
    Just pay for room that YOU booked, and that the hotel and its staff will no doubt spend time effort (and money in consequence) to prepare for you.
    lol
