GUADEC 2017 accommodation survey

We are looking at accommodation options for GUADEC 2017 in Manchester and we would like some feedback from everyone who is hoping to attend!

Manchester’s hotels fill up quickly in summer so we are going to do one or more group bookings now to ensure we have enough rooms for everyone.

There are 3 potential locations we’ve found. I’ve put some details about each place here: https://wiki.gnome.org/GUADEC/2017/Accommodation

If you are hoping to attend next year’s GUADEC, please take a minute to fill the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/DYcnQLiBBZSSQlH23. If you prefer not to use Google Forms, reply to this mail on guadec-list@gnome.org instead (the questions are listed in the email).

If anyone has data from previous years that could inform our group booking for 2017 then please share it with us. I think the last time GUADEC did pre-booking of accommodation was in A Coruña back in 2012, so if anyone has numbers on how many rooms were taken and how many nights each person stayed for that year, or any before, it would help us a lot.

Here are the options in brief (see the wiki for more details):

Youth hostel

  • 4-bed dorms
  • £33 per night
  • Breakfast £1.95 extra (must be quite a small breakfast 🙂
  • 1.2 miles from venue
  • Near the city centre

  • £43 a night, or £52 including buffet breakfast
  • Right next to the venue, about a mile from the city centre
