Accommodation - where to stay for the convention

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.

All prices are correct at time of writing - June 10th 2010.


We are encouraging guests to consider booking at the Holiday Inn Express, to try and get a group booking discount which will reduce the price of your room. If you are planning to stay there please email CJ on, and hold off booking for a day or so while we see if we have the numbers to arrange a group booking. There is currently a discussion of this on the Grand Tribunal mailing list – or email CJ and ask to be added.
