As far as I can say, the cost is per person sharing and not per room. It is worth asking them directly is they can add a bed into a family room. I know they mention adding baby cots but you should check about a regular one. You can send them an e-mail to res6@gondwana-collection. I''m sure they will advise you what your best options are.
