    yes i could but during the booking process it stated that the hotel would not have a confirmation under my name until a few weeks after booking and as i only just booked today ( for june) and really don't want to worry for 2 weeks i was hoping someone on here may have had a good experience with them cheers

    No, I have never used them. I like to research in advance who I give my money to on the internet and as you mentioned previously the reviews on TA are not great.
