Conductors will be staying at Holiday Inn London Road (5 minutes by car from the venue) and there is also another Holiday Inn (Orwell The Havens, under 15 minutes by car). Both hotels are just off the A14 and are offering rates of £79 per night B&B for single occupancy and £89 for double occupancy to any festival attender. To get these rates you must book by 6 weeks beforehand, quoting group code MU3 for London Road, or MU4 for Orwell The Havens. You will need to give card details, but payment will not be taken until you arrive (or fail to, or cancel less than 72 hours beforehand). You may be able to obtain cheaper rates online, but these will require full prepayment with no cancellation refund.
The only hotel less than a mile from the venue is also close to the railway station – Pentahotel.
Other hotels within an easy drive (less than 12 minutes) are:
- 4 Premier Inns
- 2 Travelodges
- Muthu Belstead Brook
- Best Western Claydon (the other Best Western is fully booked)
For those with live-in vehicles, there are a number of motorhome sites locally within 20 minutes drive. It will unfortunately not be able to stay in the venue car park over night.
Conference delegates are responsible for arranging and paying for their own accommodation. The cost of staying Friday night can then be reclaimed from the SRP up to a maximum of £75.
