Bride is THROWN OUT of QLD hotel to make way for pampered NRL teams escaping coronavirus lockdown 💥👩💥

How a bride-to-be was KICKED OUT of a hotel along with her entire wedding party to make way for pampered NRL teams escaping Sydney’s Covid outbreak

  • Bridal party booked eight to ten rooms at the Twin Waters Novotel Resort in QLD
  • They were told on Tuesday night the rooms had since been given to NRL teams
  • The bridal party were forced to find new accommodation days out from wedding
  • Bride’s mother Suzie said she and her daughter are now in separate hotels

A bride-to-be has had her carefully planned wedding disrupted at the last minute after a hotel kicked her and her family out of their rooms to make way for NRL players.

The young couple Kathryn McDowell and Andrew Hettige will tie the knot this weekend at Twin Waters Golf Club – and planned to stay at the nearby Novotel resort in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast.

Their family booked eight to 10 rooms many months ago for the bridal party, including the bride’s mother Suzie.

However, the hotel will now accommodate four NRL teams – the Penrith Panthers, Manly Sea Eagles, Newcastle Knights, and Sydney Roosters – for quarantine.

The teams were flown out of NSW as Sydney residents hunker down to battle to a Covid outbreak – going into their fourth week of a harsh lockdown that will now continue until at least July 30.

Why the players and team staff require a luxury four star beachfront resort to conduct a 14-day quarantine largely confined to their rooms has not been revealed.

After being booted from the hotel, Ms Mcdowell has had to scramble to find replacement accommodation just three days out from her wedding.

Suzie told 4BC Radio‘s Neil Breen her brother was flying up from Melbourne and first saw the email on Tuesday night confirming they had lost their reservation.

‘He rang me saying his accommodation has been cancelled due to Novotel becoming a quarantine hotel,’ she said.

‘I rang them last night and (the hotel) said ”yep”, and that we should be getting an email confirming it soon.

‘I’m out and we’re all out and we had about eight to 10 rooms booked.’

After spending hours online Suzie and Kathryn managed to find backup accommodation, but they will be staying in separate hotels.

‘Obviously my money is not good enough and the NRL is more important,’ she said.

Suzie will be staying in Marcoola – a 15 minute drive away.

The mother said she and her daughter booked the Novotel resort rooms months in advance and there was about 70 guests coming to the wedding.

Queensland Deputy Premier Steve Miles said on Wednesday it was unfortunate some events would be displaced because of the NRL teams quarantine but ‘obviously there weren’t three empty resorts available’.

Twin Waters Novotel Resort said it was not able to comment when approached by Daily Mail Australia.

The NRL has moved shift 12 clubs into southeast Queensland for at least a month to escape NSW amid an alarming increase in the number of Covid-19 cases.

All NSW and ACT-based clubs were moved into three dedicated hubs in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast by Wednesday, while Melbourne and the three Queensland-based clubs remain in their home cities.

Games will be played out of Suncorp Stadium, Cbus Stadium or Sunshine Coast Stadium.
