Hotels and Race Start/Finish

Accommodation has been arranged at the Premier Inn, Grimsby for Saturday 1 October and Sunday 2 October. 24 rooms have been reserved for the Saturday night for PSUK competitors and their guests at a cost of £61 per room. A smaller number of rooms are also reserved for those who may choose to stay on the Sunday night.
Grimsby is located away from Mablethorpe but is the nearest town where a large hotel is available to us. However, it is just off the M180 motorway travelling from most directions and is just 40 minutes away from Mablethorpe. It makes an ideal pre-race accommodation venue being easy to get to, a quality hotel with ample free parking and a restaurant located in the grounds.
To book a room contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will respond with confirmation on availability of your room arrangements. Payment in full must be made direct with me immediately. There is a 14 day cancellation policy where a full refund could be made 14 days before arrival.
There are other small hotels and B&B's available in and around Mablethorpe. We would suggest you trawl the internet to ascertain places to stay should you decide not to stay at the Premier Inn.
The “Haven” Caravan Park close to Mablethorpe are also offering three night caravan packages at a reasonable price.
