    A few of us will be staying at the Best Western Brome Grange Hotel, IP23 8AP. Under £ 50 when I booked a couple of weeks back on Booking.com.
    I haven't stayed here before so don't know about parking for trailers, etc.

    I have booked the Best Western Brome Grange Hotel, IP23 8AP as Nigel and Duncan have said. I called them about trailers and they are happy either at the front or to the rear. The rear has access via an arch, which is ok for vans and cars but not trucks. All this can also be seen via the satellite view on Google maps. Hopefully this info helps.

    Thanks for the update Andrew, I've made a note for next year. Duncan & I look forward to seeing you again, we're staying in self catering in Snetterton as I'd not realised hotels wld be an option at that point in time. We might make it over in the evening depending on the time we arrive at our digs, otherwise we'll see you at the circuit.

    I have booked the Best western "team hotel" as well thru hotels.com. £48 with breakfast. Im looking forward to my first outing ever at Snetterton.
    I will be having my own 2021 opener at Donington on 26th april in the evening. I couldnt manage the trip to Cadwell and back home as well as the day on track without overnite accommodation.

    What about eating/dining on the thursday night??
    Is anyone planning on eating there?
    I assume the "rule of six" would allow 6 people to be seated together??
    Booking in advance ??
