Parking for non-hotel guests
As the hotel will be full, there will not be enough parking to cater for non- hotel guests in the main hotel parking. There is however an overflow parking area with ample parking within the hotel grounds which is a very short walk from transition area, and please make use of this area. There will be plenty of signage and people to direct you accordingly. Please make sure that you reach the venue before 5:00 am to avoid road closure challenges.
