T'lodge.

The price swung it this year - Although we shall miss The Sainsburys, the Chinese takeaway and the convenience (with the drunken excitement of the dark alley) the £134 difference more than makes up for that, and i find the outside communal area better at the T'lodge.

We do feel we're somewhat cheating on the P-Inn though, so we're keeping it quiet..

We're Lodging as well, for exactly the same reasons as Davo points out.

Never stayed there before but as long as it provides the basic level of comfort I crave I'll be happy

How far is the Travelodge from the festival site? Is it walkable?

Premier Inn.

We booked a day later than most last year, so didn't notice the hike in price! - about £35 more this year. I thought about swapping to the travelodge but thought about getting home after a few ales and decided to stick despite the cost!
not really here

It is, but just.. and it isn't something i'd choose to do (i have done so) it takes about half an hour, but it's all along the main road and you do pass a kebab shop along the way (for sustinence)

We're in the Premier Inn. Just being able to walk it so easily makes it worthwhile for me.

Whilst you lot battle it out in a two-party system, we're staying in the left-wing radical workers' playtime that is Moss Cottage.

THERE IS ANOTHER WAY.

I trusted some Italian friends that stayed in Moss Cottage last year and booked there with them.

Yes, Moss Cottage sounds good in theory but can it work in the real world?!
Also, Lenny Henry has never advertised Moss Cottage.

Lodge as it was cheaper and I've a feeling I read somewhere that there is a decent pub nearby, but i'm probably wrong (I often am, unlike Jerry Lee Lewis) the lodge is certainly way closer than the place I stopped last time, some Premier Inn that was £20 taxi each way, madness.

We're in the Premier Inn! I've got a bit of a fear of Travelodges.

Lenny's gaff again... the profiteering swine... I like the walk to and from Butterley station and take the train to Swanwick Junction... you've got to have a go on the trains, innit?

(although I'm up for a stroll across that cab driver's fields this year)

That's the biggest downside to camping, no arriving by train. I still remember the sense of anticipation on the train when I came to Indietracks for the first time on the Sunday in 2010. When its sunny though the walk from the campsite is very lovely.

Anyway, I'll leave you bourgeois hotel dwellers to your weeing contest.

Clemence, Joanny and I always share the same room. It's less than 35£/person for 3 nights.
