: Brighton: where are you staying?

Appreciate everyone's attention is on Dreddcon at the mo, but where are people staying at Brighton? I checked the Metropole and it's a facking rip-off - more than ?300 for a double room over the weekend. Not paying that in a million years, so wondered what other people were doing for accomm ...

Metropole's ?65 per night (incl. VAT, plus breakfast) if you book at the special convention rate. That's where I'm staying, as is Mark.

If you search hard enough, you'll come across a hippie hostel in the heart of Brighton that has some beds available for ?5 per person per night.  Trust me, don't stay there.

Oh well, it doesn't look like it matters anyway, as Molcher appears to have buggered off following his splurging at Harvey Knicks.

Can I have my half of the table back now?
