Booked for Niki & myself for Friday & Saturday nights through Expedia.co.uk.
Total cost £108.54 for the two nights (not including Breakfast or the Gatsby event.)

I am hoping we can book the Gatsby party through the IBA so we can all sit together ?

I've booked via the Accor hotels website. It offered me a room for £103 for the two nights, non-refundable - or a whopping £149 including breakfast, still non-refundable. So I picked the 'no breakfast' option - and on the next screen, it offered me breakfast for £10 a day! I did get a discount through being in the Accor Hotels loyalty scheme, but I think it was only a fiver off the room rate.

Regards,
Martin

Like Martin I joined the Mercure Hotel group loyalty scheme and was offered the £103 + £20 for 2 nights and 2 breakfasts. Went to pay on-line (up front and non-refundable) but even though they're taking my cash now as my debit card expiry is 10/17 it wouldn't take payment :mad: I then rang a human at their central booking line who also couldn't take my payment over the phone. I then got through to the actual hotel (allegedly) and they would take my card details but wanted an extra £6 for breakfasts rather than the £10 internet price. Bloody useless company!

I might book breakfasts later on or go to Morrisons with Steve & Niki :D
