Hello clare
The hotel supplies a left luggage room where you can store your luggage or alternatively you can ask upon checkin if your room will be available the next day to do a late check out although this usually incurs a small charge
Or you can add another nights stay with us onto your accommodation to guarantee your room again this will incur an additional charge
