The Hotel

Our hotel for aXXIdental is the Grantham Ramada Hotel, formerly known as the Grantham Marriott hotel. This is situated in Grantham (surprisingly enough) in Lincolnshire. This has good access by road (just off the A1), by rail (Grantham is on the East Coast main line from London Kings Cross), and air (East Midlands airport is only 37 miles away, and is a reasonably easy route by public transport). The hotel has one large (150-seater) conference room, two smaller (50-seater) ones, and four small boardrooms near the largest room. It has 86 guest bedrooms, a large open bar area with plenty of seating, and a pool and sauna.

The Ramada Grantham's address is Swingbridge Road, Grantham, NG31 7XT UK.

Hotel booking

Hotel booking will be via aXXIdental, and a hotel booking form was sent out with PR2. Please return your completed hotel booking form to the address given at the end of the form.

You may, if you wish, email your booking to Miki ( mikidennis at ) with something like "aXXIdental hotel booking" as the subject. Please ensure you include all the pertinent information. Miki will acknowledge all such messages, so if you don't receive an acknowledgement within a few days, please try the email address below instead.

The PR3 address labels (or accompanying e-mails) included a hotel booking code. It'll look something like this "X ThFrSaSu":

"X" is one of "S" for Single, "D" for Double, "T" for Twin (a room with two beds) or "C" for Child (sharing parents' room).

The "ThFrSaSu" will contain just the nights booked, so "FrSa" if you've booked for Friday and Saturday nights, and so on.

Hotel rooms - extra information

The hotel have informed us that they have a small number of single and double rooms in which guests are allowed to smoke. If you would like such a room, please ask. Otherwise, we will assume you do not want one.

Also, although there are no 'family' rooms, the hotel can make arrangements for a small child to share its parents' double room. Again, please ask if you wish to make an arrangement like this.
