    Cheap places to stay for BETT

    Can anyone suggest a cheap place to stay for one night during BETT? I have managed to persuade the powers that be to let me go on the train but I think a night stay is required!

    Ibis (earls court) is not too pricey, and not too long a trek.

    Premiere Inn Kensington - it's not the closest (quite near Ibis suggested above) but is about a 15-20min walk.

    Why don't you write to your MP and see what they recommend.

    EduGeek will once again be staying in the Kensignton Forum but you may struggle to get in there if you leave it too late.

    I have just spoken to Dos_Box and I think he will be finalising volunteers this week.

    There's an EasyHotel around Earls Court, somewhere along the A4 I think.

    About 30-odd quid a night by the looks of it. Also a couple of others dotted around, easy enough on the Tube...
