Definitely will be going again this year, as I was very impressed last time. Except my hotel cost £80 a night last time. The Norbreck is a lot cheaper, although it has some pretty bad reviews, and I ate lunch there on the Sunday last time and it took them over an hour to microwave a pie, but did anyone actually stay there and was it as bad as the reviews make out.

I'm probably going to stay over Friday and Saturday night this year, so if it's cheap, but bearable, then that would be more attractive than the £80 a night I spent last time (for what was an 'okay' place).

Just booked a hotel for me + mate.

Same place we stayed last year - http://www.windsorandwestmorlandhotel.org.uk/ £55 for twin room - 10 min stroll from Norbreck, friendly staff and the breakfast was good :)

rooms are basic and old fashioned but they were clean.

IIRC, I ordered a couple of panini from there on Saturday and it took them over 50 minutes. Wouldn't have minded if they'd have warned me in advance, that way I wouldn't have missed out on as much gaming time!

I missed the event last year due to various real-life issues but I will definitely be there this year!! Hotel already booked for Friday until Sunday. Might be bringing a certain TV presenting friend along too - but that's a big MIGHT at the moment. :D
