    We bought a NZ Grabone coupon in March this year, and would like to redeem it to cover our accommodation cost for our November holidays. Can you please advise what type of room are available to redeem our coupon? What if we would like an update? For instance, Garden room to Beachfront room. It is much appreciated if you can reply me ASAP. Many thanks.
