          Hi I'm trying to book 3 twin rooms for 6 people in total but the BBH website doesn't seem to allow that under the same booking. Any ideas? I'd rather not submit three different bookings in case they don't have three rooms available. Thanks Lovisa

          Response from bobteanau | Property representative |
          We one twin ensuite room. That's why the BBH booking system does not allow you to originate a booking request. Ph me 03 2497429 & I'll discuss options. Cheers, Bob
