From Stephen Jones:The World Horror Convention 2010 is being hosted in the historic seasideÂ city of Brighton, East Sussex, on the picturesque south coast of England. AÂ popular year-round destination for holidaymakers and sightseers from allÂ over the world, we have negotiated exclusive rates with three local hotelsÂ that we believe offer remarkable value for money and should appeal to allÂ types of budgets:
ROYAL ALBION HOTEL
The main convention hotel is the Royal Albion Hotel, opposite Brighton’sÂ iconic Palace Pier on the seafront. A private home from the mid-1700s untilÂ the early 19th century, the elegant four-storey exterior underwent majorÂ renovation in 2009.
For those who want modern sophistication, and don’t mind a fifteen-minuteÂ walk along the seafront (or a few minutes’ cab ride) to the convention,Â there is the Ramada Brighton, which offers a blend of 19th century eleganceÂ and modern dÃ©cor.
ROYAL YORK HOTEL
Located right next door to the Royal Albion Hotel, with only a couple ofÂ minutes’ walk between them, the Royal York Hotel is a Grade II* listedÂ Georgian building that boasts lavish, yet classic dÃ©cor inspired by theÂ area’s Regency heritage.
Detailed information about all these hotels is now available on our websiteÂ www.whc2010.orgÂ along with electronic and printable reservation forms.Â Rooms are limited, and will be allocated on a first-come basis. Hotel ratesÂ quoted are per room (up to two persons occupancy) and include Full EnglishÂ breakfast and all taxes.
PLEASE NOTE: These rates are ONLY available for registered members of theÂ convention. If you are not a member of the convention yet, or attempt toÂ book the hotels directly, you will NOT receive our special discounts.Â Convention attendees are responsible for settling their own account withÂ the hotel of their choice. You can reserve your booking by credit card orÂ cheque, and pay by cash in full or register your credit card upon arrival.
For those who want more sophisticated accommodation or are attending on aÂ limited budget, there are plenty of alternatives in the immediateÂ surroundings, ranging from luxury boutique hotels to simple Bed & BreakfastÂ services.
