Cheltenham budget weekend, Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November 2019 (2 nights)

The Club will be exploring more of the delightful Cotswolds in early November 2019, based in Cheltenham. Our preferred base is the Cheltenham Central (West/A40) Premier Inn, which has a restaurant on site. Unfortunately our interest has sparked a price hike on the website;  the room cost for a double/twin room for the first weekend in November was £110.50 for the ‘Saver’ rate for this weekend when checked in early January . As it is only possible to book a maximum of 4 rooms at a time, we are asking anyone wanting to come along to book themselves in. However, if anyone would like to share a twin room, please let Jill know so she can put people in touch. Prices may well go down in a couple of months. An alternative option is to book in at the nearby Cheltenham Travelodge, located a little further west in Golden Valley, Hatherley Lane. The November 2019 room prices here are £73 for the two nights in a double standard room, Saver rate, when checked in early January. Please let Jill know if you have booked.
