          Hi. I am looking at staying in July with my 2 daughters ages 11 and 10. We will have arrived at Heathrow at 11.30am after a flight from New Zealand. That probably means we'll be at hotel a bit earlier than your normal check in time. Is there a way this can be accommodated without me having to pay for an extra night? Also, what would the best configuration of room/s for me to book? I understand your extra bed in rooms is a convertible sofa but I know I will be in no fit state to work that out with severe jet lag! Would it be possible to have sofa made up as a bed prior to arrival? Or would interconnecting rooms be a better option for us, if available? Thanks very much in advance.
