Accommodation

There are plenty of hotels and bed and breakfast establishments in Cheltenham. However August is the height of the British summer and holiday season, and places can get booked up quickly. However if you book soon it should not be a problem, and you may well not have to pay any money until you actually arrive, though many do.

Hotels can be pricey. If you are willing to share a room, be it a twin or a family room however, the price drops significantly. Explore the options on the on-line booking facilities, or call the numbers. Note the prices are per room, not per person in most instances. Put two people in a room the price halves.

Al prices will be checked by CJ this week as they are out of date.

IMPORTANT [Edit]

If you are trying to sort out accommodation do join the convention list – grandtrib@yahoogroups.com or email CJ and ask to be added.

STILL NEED ACCOMMODATION? [Edit]

http://www.laterooms.com/ still has plenty of accommodation available.

HOTELS IN CHELTENHAM [Edit]

Telephone: 01242 548 200
Web site: http://www.hiexcheltenham.com/
Pricing: You can book now, payable in full at single £64.40 a night for the room; twin room same, double bed +double sofa bed same. Note prices per room not per person, and have already increased once.
Distance from venue: very close - 5 minutes walk
Notes: This becomes a much more expensive option (£89 per room per night) if you leave booking till nearer the time. In 2010 delegates were troubled by loud parties and an event with a band till early in the morning, but it is very convenient for the venue.

Pricing: From £35 per room per night including continental breakfast. Nice rooms if you are sharing.
Distance from venue: close - one mile, ten minutes through town on foot.
Notes: This hotel has some cheap offers, but apparently only for the Friday night. Still I like it and the staff there, and have a good opinion of the place: worth considering.
