Sun Holidays - Parkdean - Allocation on Arrival

Hi All

Booked a holiday through one of the cheap paper deals (not sure it was sun holidays now, but same kind of thing), for a Parkdean location, earlier in the year. Allocation on arrival. We will be arriving on Monday.

When I booked it, the booking confirmation said 'Allocation on Arrival - 2 bedroom lodge'. Went to check my booking today (paranoid, like to make sure all as expected), and it now says 'Allocation on Arrival - 3 bedroom lodge'. Should I read anything into that? Or could it still be a 2 bedroom lodge when we get there?

I don't mind either way, just curious. We stayed there in May for a week (not through a paper deal), and absolutely loved the place, so we will be very happy with whatever we allocated.

DD (3) has been very excited to go back to 'Lizzie's place' (as in Lizzie the lizard) for weeks now. Now it's getting closer to me finishing work, I am also getting excited!

TIA for anyone able to shed any light one way or another. :)

    Head office will have a good idea of what accommodation types will be available for you based on ongoing sales. They might shuffle you about if (for instance) they get a more profitable booking needing a shed-load of 2 bedroom lodges next door to each other.

    When it finally comes down to it, the prime directive in allocating accommodation is to allocate as close to the room (ie on site, not at a remote office), and as close to arrival as possible.

    What jiggery-pokery goes on in the meantime isn't worth worrying about. You'll get what you booked or bigger/better.

    We do indeed have a 3 bedroom lodge. Mid price range one as well. If we had booked it privately, it would have cost us an extra £300!! Very, very happy :D
