The dates are the weekend before Reconnect, the 2025 Eastercon in Belfast, providing a fine opportunity to experience both conventions.
The hotel, within easy reach of London, has been the site for both a Rubicon and a plokta.con, and is thus no stranger to the needs of such an event.

Hotel booking is now open (Corflu 42 members only!), and reservations can be made either by email or phone.
The hotel has a range of bedrooms for convention members, starting at £70 per night for small doubles, which are to be used for single occupancy; £80 per night for standard doubles; executive doubles at £100 per night; and two-family rooms and two suites for either larger groups or a little more luxury. There are also some ground floor rooms available for members with mobility issues. See PR1 for full details.
