To be fair, some companies can be flexible even about this sort of thing if you ask nicely.

E.g. In October last year I booked to put our car on the Eurotunnel train to France for a holiday. Booked specific trains inbound and outbound. Then in November I completely forgot that I'd already done this and did it again, exact same trains etc. When we came to go outbound we got a message on the automated checkin that there was a duplicated booking, but thought nothing of it. It was only on the return leg when we got the same again and the customer services lady told us we hadn't even travelled out that something clicked with me, and checking later I realized I'd booked twice. A week later I emailed explaining my idiocy and acknowledging that the two tickets were non-refundable. And to their great credit they fully refunded one of the tickets (actually the slightly higher priced one!). Moral of the story - you might be contractually wrong, and most companies are just in it for profit - but there are also some good guys out there too if you ask nicely.

Can she get her holidays authorised and ask the hotel (very nicely) to change the dates? It's more likely to consider that than a refund.

Got something to say?
