Roomies For VidUKon

These posts have two purposes; firstly, to help people arrange their rooms for VidUKon, and secondly, to help them find roommates to share with if they're so inclined. The posts are on both Livejournal and DreamWidth, so please make sure to post on both if you're looking for a roomie.

Booking Your Room

Here are the current room rates:

Friday - £94.00 B&B single and £104.00 B&B double or twin
Saturday - £119.00 B&B single or £129.00 B&B double or twin

If you want to have more than 2 people in a room, make sure to check the rate when you're booking.

There are currently 10 rooms being held for the con; these rooms are only being held until 16 April. If you book later than that, you're fighting to get a booking at the regular room rates, whatever they are. Rates tend to go up sharply, particularly if there's an event on in Cardiff, so don't delay.

Sometimes the staff can get confused about what rate to book you at. We strongly recommend speaking to the Reservations department to arrange your room, not Reception. The reservations people are much more clued up, and should know what you're talking about if you say that you want to book one of the rooms reserved for VidUKon.

Finding a Roomie

In theory, finding a roomie should be simple - ask for one in a comment here, another kind soul spots your post and shouts "Yay!" and you work things out. However, to help with that, the con twitter will keep reminding people that someone's looking for a roomie, if there's a comment here saying that someone is looking. Hopefully, everything will be ... simples.

I normally stay with Lithy and Doccy on the Sat night, and travel from home on the Friday, but they aren't sure which nights they're going to make it to the con. Hopefully it'll be both, but I'm looking at playing it safe and getting a booking, just in case. Would you be happy sharing with me on Fri/Sat nights? I've not been told I snore, although the guys at the AWA convention said I do breathe heavily when I'm asleep. To make up for it, I can sleep through almost anything - I once slept through a force 8 gale in a one-man tent on the side of a hill...

Sure, I am up for it! I might snore, but I have also been told it is not loud. So I'm pretty sure you'd do fine with me then.

OK - shall I make the booking with the hotel? I can use your details from the VidUKon site for the hotel booking, if they're up to date.

Sounds great! I can transfer money to you.

I can't recall if my RL info on there is correct. Otherwise we can go to private messages and fix that.

It's been a while since I booked a hotel, but I think they'll just look for a deposit in advance, and then take full payment when we check in. I'll give the hotel a ring tomorrow and check - I may be home very late though, as it's a boardgames night, so I may not be able to confirm anything on DW until Weds night.

True, that sounds likely. And whenever works for you is fine!

We're sorted - twin room booked for the nights of the 16th and 17th, £104 for Fri night and £129 on Sat; they've got my name and card against the room, and we can sort out the details on the Friday :)

Any chance anyone's still looking for a roomie for the Friday and Saturday?
