The organisers recommend the ‘Premier Inn’ hotel chain
There are several in the DERBY area near the competition venue.
We have an arrangement with the PREMIER INN (Derby South) less than 1 mile (approx. 1.5 km.) from the competition arena where you will get a good deal. However, book early
as this hotel has only about 50 rooms. We have in fact an arrangement with ALL Premier INN’s in the DERBY area. Click on the icon on the home page of our website to book. You may decide to go on the internet to book hotels in Derby. You will be spoilt for choice and at most they are 6 miles (Derby City Centre) from the competition arena.
