Unfortunately it depends on the booking with Love Holidays, did you have free cancellation? They are not the most customer friendly hotel booking company. X

I know some had a terrible experience with love holidays but they were faultless with me.

Had the refund back in 5 days, amazing, I just went into manage my booking, selected cancel and that was it, email back instantly and money back on my card 5 days later.

I had however booked a fully refundable hotel.

I had a non refundable booking with love holidays, and initially they were atrocious to deal with.

Every other company I had non refundable bookings with (ebookers, hotels.com & Expedia) contacted the hotels directly and within minutes the refund was authorised.

With love holidays the only way to actually Ďspeakí to someone was online and it literally took me days to even connect (finally got through dead on 9am on a Sunday to be told I was in a queue and would be kept up to date regularly with my position in that queue - then sat there for three hours with no contact whatsoever (at this point I was willing to sit in that queue for the whole day to prove to my insurers Iíd tried everything I could for a refund!) & then at just after midday I was through to an agent who flatly refused to contact the hotel and said go through insurance and hung up on me!

I joined Twitter to complain - no response & wrote a physical letter of complaint with no response!

However... a few days before I was actually due to be in the hotel, I had an automatic email from Loveholidays asking if I wanted to move my date, have a credit note or refund & to follow the link - I was dubious because the link took me to manage my booking and prior to that date it was clearly showing Iíd lose my money if I cancelled, but miraculously the options had changed and I indeed did get a refund about three weeks after my travel date - so ultimately a good outcome, but they made the whole process so awful and the girl I spoke to was so rude, that I will never use them again - a shame as if the process had been explained Iíd of accepted the wait without complaint!

Sorry for the long post, but just thought Iíd explain how it worked for me, so that you at least have some hope you will get a refund in the end!

Did you book on your credit card ? If so then at least you have S75 protection, if you do go down this route make sure you have not accepted a voucher or a change of dates

I doubt section 75 will apply in this case. The HRH is open and in theory the booking is valid. Being unable to travel and check in would be a travel insurance case not a failure to supply if Love Holidays don't cooperate.

Hi, thank you for the email, & I liked reading your long post! 🥰 I did manage to get through to them as I went through making a new booking then querying my booking, but was told because Like you originally did. Was told I took advantage of the non refundable room rates therefore there was nothing they could do to make any changes to my hotel etc, & the woman I spoke to was rather rude & very unhelpful too! I asked where my money Iíve paid will go them has I actually paid £198 ( the rest £136 is due on mon 13th oct!) So I need to act quick! I really canít afford to lose this money, Iíve called Virgin travel insurance with an automated response that if the travel company canít help then Iíll need written prove that my credit card canít help before they will consider looking into it! 😢 I canít even find Which card I paid the £196 too)
Can you please tell me what email address you used, as I canít find nothing on manage my booking to help with this, your email gives me hope, so thank you for that, Lreadt going to lose out on having to pay for travel insurance which isnít going to be used HRH & other costs all add up! We really saved long & hard for this so any help will be so appreciated, my head is spinning with it all & I seem to go around & around in circles! . Please if you could give me the link or number you used I will deffo try them again, Iím really happy you got a good outcome from them, but they should be able to do this for other too! Xx. Afterall TR were on,y asking £15 non refundable dep at the time but because HRH was about £20 cheaper I paid £196 non refundable to go with them, Itís not that I didnít want to stay. At HRH, my holiday with VH was cancelled so obviously unable xx

Love Holidays have no obligation to refund you as you booked just a room and you can not longer use it. They may show good will and allow you to move it,but that is upto them.
Have you considered getting your book ref and contact HRH direct and asking if you can move it.
