Hotels in Bath
The organisers have reserved hotel rooms for all speakers.
Here some recommendations for all other participants. Bath can get busy in the summer, so book as early as possible:
- Edgar Townhouse. Quote: University of Bath (and as university contact: Elaine Ritchie) when booking.
- Unversity accommodation. During non-term time, student accommodation is rented out to visitors. Can be either in town (John Wood House) or on campus. If you are ok with sharing a bathroom, this is a less expensive alternative to staying in a hotel, otherwise it’s similar in price.
- Green Park House Accommodation. A similar offering from the other university in Bath (In town and seems to have private bathrooms )
