I don't think there is any special sequence.
You just have to be the one that's next in the queue when a space becomes available.

I never accused anybody of anything I just said if they could tell how the process went it might be nice as some of us would like to know.

I am sure not all of those who booked rooms are at work and if they have got time to wait an hour to book surely another 5 mins is not going to hurt....

Some people are soooo touchy on here I'd appreciate if you'd direct your post at somebody who was actually accusing.... and furthermore when I last checked I didn't see a rule about asking people about how they came across there good fortune I thought that was what this site was about.......
and seen as you haven't been successful then my question was not direted at you

Thats what I think, I will give negative feedback to anyone that asks about Leading Hotels of the World. Its not great publicity.

How harsh would it be that the only screen that loads without problems is the one saying ''The offer has run out, thanks for taking part''.
Save saynoto0870.com in your favorites, and stop giving companies more dialling 0870 numbers when you can dial freephones or cheaper alternatives
call your credit card company, tell them that you want to leave, 99% of the time theyll lower your APR%
Remember when that Bank Manager or Salesperson smiles at you, all he sees is notes. Dont forget the motto, "the wider their grin, the more debt your in"

I am afraid I am giving up too, I got a couple of rooms on the travelinn deal, maybe if I brought some champagne and flowers and a blindfold I could make it into a five star break!!!

Further more it would be nice to know how they got through as if there is a promotion like this again in the future some of the rest of us who aren't so lucky may stand a better chance next time....

Information like if they were already in the hotel availability page at the start of the sale may be useful as I was on the pre-registered page at the time of the sale and when i selected the hotel it crashed me out

What process did you go through to get there ?

I'm on a property page directly and I am clicking Check Availablity based on my dates.

I have been succesful in loading up the hotel page at least 7 times (the direct link). Yet when I 'check availability' it says SERVER TO BUSY or RUNTIME ERROR.
Somehow Im not sure if that's the right way to go about it now.

Managed to get through the main site, put dates in and it went to runtime error. Then I kept on refreshing and suddenly it popped up. But it doesn't seem to go any further..

I am trying this route too - not sure if we will be able to access the promo rates by going straight to a property page, but I'm not getting in any other way!!!!

As far as I'm concerned nobody has managed to actually book this unless they can come back and actually tell us a bit more about how they managed it!
