Make more of the weekend

We know many Rotarians like to make a weekend (or longer) of their conference stay. We have negotiated special rates for dinner, bed & breakfast at the hotel for Friday and Saturday, and there will be optional fellowship events on each evening. For those who do stay at the hotel over the weekend the leisure facilities are excellent and included in the room rates. There is a swimming pool and well equipped gym, with a range of additional beauty treatments and services are available at extra cost.

Friday evening is a social evening

For those joining us on Friday there will be a reserved area of the hotel with bar snacks / meals available to suit all diets and budgets. Join other Rotarians whenever you can for an informal evening of fellowship.

Saturday Evening Conference Dinner

2024/25 District Governor Jane invites you to join her and the Conference team for an evening of good food and fellowship. A three-course dinner will be followed by entertainment. The evening begins at 6:30pm, and tickets for this special event are just £37.50.

You don’t have to be resident at the hotel to join us, and we have timed the evening to allow those who wish to extend the day to join us and still be able to drive home.
