    Hi, we are looking for accomodation for 12 girls (16 years old) who are travelling from Tauranga to play in Waterpolo nationals. We will also have a coach and manager with them. Can you please let me know if your hostel would be able to accommodate us. We are very respectful and would like to establish a good relationship with you for future bookings. If you are able to offer us accomodation could you send through a quote for 6 - 11 october. (Girls are happy to be in bunk rooms, but manager and Coach will need seperate accommodation.
