SWhoop Ticket price DOES NOT include accommodation. You can either chose to stay with a Bristol hooper who will provide accommodation for a payment of £20 or you can stay in a local youth hostel/hotel. Details for both can be found on this page…..

The Bristol SWhooper Hosting Scheme

There’s many amazing hoopers in Bristol coming to SWhoop so these hoopers will offer to host out of town SWhoopers.

Hooping Mad will not be coordinating the pairings.

Please hunt for a Bristol Hooper willing to host you by posting on the following fb groups:

SWhoop group
Bristol Hoopers
Bristol Hoop Jam
UK hoopers

We would ask visiting hoopers to honour the £20 a placement payment to the host.

If you are offering to host:
Please state name and email, number of spaces/what’s available eg beds/sofas/floor space, how you’ll be getting to the venue, if you are a smoking/non-smoking house, if you have any pets.

If you are looking for a place to stay:
Please state name and email, what you’d be happy with, smoker/non-smoker, pet allergies and which nights you’ll need to stay in Bristol.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CONFIRM ARRIVAL AND LEAVING DATES WITH YOUR HOST/GUEST

Note from Emma: Let me know if you if you are struggling to find somewhere to stay and I’ll help out where I can

Local Hotels

Prices stated are from searches done on Feb 2nd 2015 assuming 2 people sharing 1 room for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. (We recommend you stay overnight on the Sunday as you’ll be exhausted and we have some plans for fun post-SWhoop activity) Prices may vary. I’ve put them in order of proximity….

(If you find out any of this info is out of date/incorrect then please let me know so I can change it (email emma@hoopingmad.co.uk))

Please note that Breakfast will be provided at SWhoop on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning so there is no need to book this at your accommodation.

Cheapest local hotels are the two Ibis hotels which are about £270 for 2 people in a room for the 4 nights 2-5th. We have also sorted special rates for a range of lovely hotels in Clifton which are a bit further away but are very nice hotels for really good prices (as low as £256 for 2 sharing for 4 nights – scroll down for details)

Here are some options:

The Future Inn is also a 10min walk away. For 2 people in 1 room (Thurs-Mon) with parking = £361 for 4 nights!

The Bristol Marriott Hotel on Lower Castle Street (make sure it’s the right one!) is only a 10min walk from the venue. For 2 people in 1 room (Thurs-Mon) = £386. Good deals can be found on lastminute.com sometimes.

Hotel Ibis Bristol Temple Meads Quay 13mins walk away (the city centre Ibis is listed below and is 30mins walk away). 2 people in 1 room (Thurs-Mon) = approximately £270 for 4 nights.
