PostSubject: Hotel - Night Before the Rally 2014   Fri Sep 27, 2013 4:59 am

To all 2014 Help for Heroes 4x4 European Rally crews

We hope you are all well - We've been asked about accommodation arrangements for the evening prior to the start of the rally. The start location, Littlecote House Hotel, is a Warner's Leisure hotel and isn't used by the rally crews due to a minimum booking of 3 nights stay and no children.

A tradition seems to have developed where the long haul crews tend to stay at the Premier Inn Swindon West (J16, M4) on the Friday night; and then eat circa 8pm; this dining occasion is then used to hatch plots against the rally's organisers and marshals!!

This is the link to the hotel http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/SWILYD/swindon-west-m4,-j16

Of course this is wholly outside of the rally and many crews travel to the start on the Saturday morning.

To help with your planning; - Scrutineering on Saturday 14th June will open at 0830hrs and close at 1030hrs. The is no flexibility with this two hour period and you are advised to arrive in the early part of the timing window.

Hope this helps
As ever, keep up the brilliant fund raising

Not quite, Marshals are also often present at the hotel.
 The hatching of plans is purely against the organisers for the entertainment of the crews and marshals

The thing is to book up approx three months before as this is when you'll be likely to get the deals as at the moment the cheapest price is approx £52.00 for the night before the off.I did an enquirery for the 13th of Dec and the cheapest was £29.00!!!!!Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I doubt that, weve already had our wages in advance, anyway, where else would you find such a dedicated, hard working crew that would put up with those pesky competitors?

That's worrying news Matt - it will mean more drinking time for idle hands.  Rolling Eyes Although I'm sure one of your fellow crews will step into the breach  clown
