News & Reviews News Offer: Free 2 night stay in Southern Ocean Lodge

Now before you go ahead, mark this as spam and never come back here again, let me explain.

Due to an act of stupidity involving planes that I will deny until my very last breath, I am in a position whereby I have a non-refundable rate booked in Southern Ocean Lodge and there’s a tiny issue: I cannot make it.  Not only that, but I have it booked in their second highest suite category, so the financial impact is quite different to forgetting to show up to a pre-booked dinner in the nearby Harvester.

After begging, pleading, screaming and crying, I am now onto acceptance.  So I asked myself: why just let it go completely to waste, when someone may as well enjoy it?

So if you happen to be free on the Monday2nd > Wednesday, 4th April and 100% – Scouts honour, no-fingers-crossed – can make it, then do drop me a message just saying why you want to go.  That’s it.  I’m giving it away completely free of charge and will let the winner know on Thursday.

I suspect this will go either one of two ways:

  1.  No one replies and Southern Ocean Lodge get to enjoy their empty room, most likely turning it into a Scrooge McDuck coin vault from all the money they’ve made from me.
  2. This somehow goes viral and half of Australia decide they want to go.

Please do not contact me unless you 100% can go, as I’m terrible at admin for myself, let alone back and forth with a stranger receiving a £2,000/n hotel stay for free that then decides they cannot make it.  All I will do is pass your details directly onto Southern Ocean Lodge and you can then handle everything yourself in terms of getting there and making sure they don’t poison you with your food allergies.

I am not after any of your details.  You don’t need to sign-up to anything; I will not try and sell you insurance, viagra or pictures of Russian women; indeed, anything at all.  This is just my way of doing the only option left: something decent.

EDIT: This is now closed  and someone selected – more information here.
