To avoid disappointment players must book their accommodation early.

We have a limited number of rooms and our allocation will be available until 15 December, 2016 giving entrants enough time to reserve a room ... but don't leave it too late! After this date the Biba rate and/or accommodation cannot be guaranteed. If you want to stay-and-play and pay a reduced Entry Fee then you need to reserve your room before the deadline.

** Players on the Biba Rate get the benefit of a reduced Tournament Registration Fee. By paying the reduced fee players can effectively reduce the total accommodation cost by £10 per player - which means that the lowest rate for single single occupancy is down to £70 and double occupancy for 1 night for two players is reduced to £51.50! NB: The savings are via payment of the reduced Tournament Registration Fee and are not applied to the actual rate paid.

It is essential you book before the allocation expires

Call our Accommodation Team to reserve your room on 01656 747 700

Opening hours: 09:15 to 17:15 Mon to Fri. 09:15 to 13:15 Sat.
