Issues with specifying queen bed sizing in Australia

Does anyone in Australia that has listed queen sized beds to their property in the last 9 months have an issue with them being described as “large double bed (king size)” on apps in th UK language setting? Anyone have a solution? We are struggling to get a resolution from Booking.com.

I'm in Australia. Our beds are all Australian queen size. I list ours as "large double bed" because there is no other option. I agree, adding a "queen size bed" would be great.

Hi Angela,
Thanks for your comment.
2 of our queens are “large double bed”, which is fine, but the third says “large double bed (king size)”. Booking.com can’t explain why. It was added later than the others which might be the reason. In the meantime we are calling it a “double bed” to avoid false advertising. How long ago did you list your property? I agree - an “Australian English” option that uses Australian sizes would be ideal!

We've been listed on booking.com for about 10 years, so a long time ago, all of my room types say "large double bed".

For double occupancy Deluxe Queen room, there is still no choice of having a queen bed. How can I make listing accurate if no choice of a queen bed? You get to choose King or Double/full size or twin size....no queen in choices. Please advise how to be truthful in listing?
