WHY ARE WE TELLING YOU THIS?
EU law requires website operators to ask for permission before using certain kinds of cookies.

WHAT COOKIES WE USE
Our website uses the following types of cookies:
The following cookies are generated and used by the Avvio system services:
CSSID This is a session cookie and is used only to link a browsing customer with a server session. It is a mandatory cookie and does not contain any personally identifiable information. Expiry - After a Session ; Category - Essential.
crm Used to store information about authenticated users (accountID) or promo code used by a browsing user on a hotel site. This is a mandatory cookie and functionality of the booking engine is severely limited without this cookie. The information contained in this cookie is not shared with any third party. Expiry - 13 Days; Category - Essential.
avvio_persp Used for Personalisation V2 (recommender engine) tracking to personalise and tailor a guests website / booking engine experience. Only a cookie ID is stored in the cookie which points to a matching record of user activity on the hotels booking engine for personalisation purposes. As a user interacts with the hotel (searches for availability on certain dates, makes booking, etc.) Avvio updates the information it has on that user for that property. This information is then used to personalise the website experience for that user if they return to the website again. Personalisation options include remembering the preferred dates of stay in the event that the user has not yet made a booking, or remembering their name and arrival date if they are a pre-stay customer seeking additional information (e.g. directions, upgrades) on the website. The data contained in avvio_persp and the data associated with that cookieID is not shared with any third parties and is used exclusively for Personalisation. Expiry - 119 Days; Category - Functional.
