I stayed there with my mate last time. It's an OK hotel - the area looks a bit dodgy but they generally leave you alone :)

 

Cheers

I'm not staying at the Grand this time but I did last time it's ok for what it costs it does look a little dodgey but for the amount of time you'll spend there it doesn't matter :) x

I'll be taking my car and the lady at the Grand said there is parking for £3 a day.

The Park Inn is right next to the town centre so plenty of places to get food etc. No Starbucks though :D

Yeah, but its not big enough for a bottle or anything, it is one of those fridges you can fit a few cans of coke in.

 

I thought we could put milk in it for brekkie?

 

A little bit like this

A space for an upright can of coke and put some sandwiches on top of that............tiny!

 

I will bring drink with me too though, expensive prices at the hotel and all that.

I might get u to pick me up a bottle of vodka or something if ur getting booze because I dont wanna fly with it in my bag. Rough Ryanair baggage handlers + vodka = stinking baseball outfit and ball dress! ;);)

 

I answered ur FB msg somewhere on here lol, I'm not staying on Sunday night and might be getting a taxi to and from the airport. Pricey but means I dont miss stuff. What a conundrum!

Yeah, thats no problem, let me know what and I can grab it from the supermarket before I come.

 

Which airport are you flying, still Luton? Thats quite a long trek

 

Yeah, I answered that post too :D

 

I didn't think about timings with gold pass reception or anything. If it does clash, perhaps we just meet up at the party?

 

I will ring the hotel tomorrow and see what they say about the single for Sunday night, but to be honest, if there is not much price difference, I probably won't bother.

 

I will check what they want us to do about paying as well though

 

I'll keep you posted. I will message you the reference number tomorrow after I have confirmed with the hotel. (Will do that tea time after I finish teaching)

That's brill, dont worry about me I can meet u there if need be! Cheapest taxi quote I got was 47 pound each way... serious money. There has to be a better bus or train!!

Queen Sindel said to someone else that the gold pass receptin is often at 6pm, don't know what that means with your timings?

 

Thats a bit pricey for taxi isn't it. :D I don't know how far Luton is from Northampton though ;)

Not my area ;)
