For the past month we have been searching to find a hotel local to the event which would be able to accommodate all of our travelling players in one place as well as offering a discounted rate for those booking as part of the event. After much discussion and negotiation we were unable to find something that suitably achieved those requirements and rather than waiting even longer to try to secure such a deal we are instead going to advise that people book their stay at the Premier Inn Southampton Airport.
The hotel is less than 10 minutes drive from the University where the tournaments are being held and the two sites are directly linked by Southampton’s UniLink bus service which runs from 6am through 23:30 on both Saturday and Sunday.
Rooms at the Premier Inn are extremely cheap at less than £40 per night for a single, twin, or double room and can be booked at http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/hampshire/southampton/southampton-airport.html
Our trustees will also be staying at the Premier Inn and we’ll almost certainly be playing some board and card games in the bar on both Friday and Saturday night so we’d love to have your company if you are choosing to stay in the area over the weekend.
Again, we’re sorry we couldn’t provide a deal for booking but we feel even with a discount most alternative locations would have struggled to beat this price.
Availability as of Saturday morning is 90 rooms on Friday night, 76 Saturday night, and 103 Sunday night.
