Conference Information

This page contains information about the conference. If a question is not answered here please contact us.

Refreshments, Lunch and Breaks

There will be refreshments of Tea, Coffee, Water (hot & cold) and Biscuits in the 14 minute morning and afternoon breaks.

There is also a lunch break of 1 hour 15 minutes each day. You can either bring a packed-lunch or you may purchase food from:

  • Hotel Bar (downstairs). The bar menu contains a number of dishes catering for all tastes, however a top-tip is to take advantage of the £5.95 special-offers which aren't on the printed menu. In previous years, this has included: Fish & Chips, Burger & Chips and Steak & Chips;
  • Hotel Restaurant (upstairs);
  • Traditional English Pub a few minutes walk away which serves excellent food. There is often a good number of delegates who have attended previous conferences that enjoy visiting this pub for lunch, whilst also stretching their legs. If you'd like directions, contact a member of the conference staff;

Tip: At EmoTrance 2011, it was cheaper to book into the hotel restaurant at reception rather than in the restaurant itself. There was also special offers at the bar not mentioned in the menu so please ask staff for assistance

If you need to change your hotel room booking then contact us using the phone number above.

Note: If you book your hotel rooms through someone else then on check-in please do not tell reception that you are with the conference. This will delay and confuse reception staff because they will go through all the names on our group booking and panic when yours does not appear.

Left Luggage

Delegates who have checked-out of their hotel room on a day of the conference or pre/post training days, may store their luggage at their own risk in the conference training hall, provided it does not get in the way and is not a safety risk. The hotel does offer a ‘left luggage’ facility if you are asked to move your luggage by us or a member of the hotel staff.

Relaxing in the hot-tub and taking advantage of the hotels leisure facilities is highly recommended by conference staff. There is a nominal charge (~£10 / week or ~£4.00 / day) and you buy your pass at the hotel reception.
