          Hi, I've booked a room in Oct under the name of Jennings. Due to family circumstances I now need to cancel this. I've been trying to contact you via your website but no response. Is it right that I will still be changed 50% of the cost (£130) even though you have 6 months to fill it? I've been trying to get a response on this since March!
