Hotel information

The 4NCL uses 3 venues:

Team captains / managers should note that the hotels we use expect credit card details when reservations are made (in line with practice at most if not all hotels in the UK). They would also like room lists with the names of the players who will be taking the rooms as early as possible before the weekends (this facilitates checking in procedures) - or failing this, at least reconfirmation before the relevant weekends that the rooms are still required. This will avoid the risk of the hotels letting the rooms go beforehand because they don't have card details to confirm the reservations and no names to allocate to the rooms.

The 4NCL are using a new venue in 2005/06, the Paragon Hotel, Birmingham.

Paragon
Paragon
Paragon Hotel, Birmingham

145 Alcester Street
Birmingham
B12 0PJ

0121 627 0627

Our contact is Sam Lawrence, her direct phone number is 0121 606 4921 or e-mail here. As usual, team captains and others should quote the 4NCL National Chess League to get the discounted room rates.

The 4NCL have negotiated special room rates at the Paragon of 37 (single) and 50 (double/twin) B&B.

Further, we have agreed a half-price rate of 2.50 per day for people who want to park in the Paragon Hotel car park.

More details on the Paragon Hotel can be found here

Directions:The hotel does not recommend approaching from the Coventry Road (A45), suggesting instead Spaghetti Junction from the M6 - Aston Expressway following the road past the Bull ring and turning right onto the A441, picking up Bradford Street. At the top of the Bradford Street hill, there is a set of traffic lights, the junction with Alcester Street. The Hotel can be seen to the right for this point.

From the M5, Junction 2 or 1 to the City Centre, South from the Paradise Street roundabout on the A38 and exit at Hurst Street, then Sherlock Street and Alcester Street to the hotel.

Good luck.



The 4NCL are using a new venue in 2004/05, the Nottingham Park Inn. N.B. this is NOT the Nottingham Royal Moat House.

It is much better to come off at Junction 26 of the M1 when going to the Nottingham Park Inn as then you avoid all the roadworks. It is no more than 15 minutes to the Park Inn from the Motorway if you take this junction.

Our contact is Joanne Christodoulou.

The 4NCL have negotiated special room rates at Nottingham Park Inn of 45 for twin or double rooms and 33 for singles. These rates are agreed up to the end of calendar 2005. The room rates for calendar 2006 are 49 for twin or double rooms and 37 for singles.
