Is there a number for booking? My friend emailed and hasn't heard anything yet.

01327 30700 and ask for Lindsey or Lydia from reservations.

I had a nightmare with that number. OK I’d been tardy booking, thought there was plenty of time, got the whole hotel this time. Saw the post saying 30 rooms left and thought I’d better get my finger out.
Rang around 9.30pm Friday, and got a “call centre” type place, NOT the hotel. “Sorry, fully booked” came the reply. Knowing Phil had booked the hotel completely I tried explaining this and asked to be put through to the hotel directly. Waste of time. His English was, at best, suspect and he stuck to his guns. Tried again half hour later, same.
Thought I’d try again Monday, figured staff off for weekend, back to normal then.
Monday 9.00am same. This time the girl’s English was better and after insisting I HAD to speak to L or L, I think in the end she thought it was a personal call, she put me through directly to the hotel.
5 minutes later I was booked.
The moral of this is MAKE SURE YOU’RE SPEAKING TO THE HOTEL.
Alan.

For those still planning to book….there was another number on the event page, 01327 307019, which should go direct to the hotel.

Sorry that this info is late for you Alan but at least you’re in :)

Wish I’d known. Attended every big show since Margate 2004 and didn’t want to miss this one, but as you say I’m in and that’s all that matters 👍

Knew I should have created a FAQ or something!

You need to phone the hotel on 01327 307000 during office hours Monday to Friday. Option 1 for reception I think it is and ask to speak to Lindsey or Lydia and quote UKPinfest
