Ahem....

It will be that the "advance" tickets for August are not yet released, making a similar journey in June (out Wed, back Tue) shows that East Coast do singles at £10.00 each, bookable online for that price.

Usually advance tickets are released 12 weeks before the date of travel so keep checking back on their website.

£83 is way too much to pay.

Takes about 4 hours for me, but at £23 return....National Express is a bargain.

I'll keep checking back nearer the time. 10-20 quid's a bargin compared to the rip off £83.

I,m hopefully coming up to FF BY National Express, it will take longer but it's a money saving option. My return fare will be less than 30 quid by coach and by train it would be over 60. On a different tangent, does anyone know what the bathroom's like in HHH? It's my only real concern that it isn't too manky!

:mrgreen: From what I've heard on here....bathrooms not too gooooood.
Shared 'n' smelly. But perhaps that's only occasionally. :lol:

Shared and cramped, that covers the fairly unventilated shower cupboard(shared by 4 rooms if my memory serves right) and the tiny shared toilet(I reccommend taking your own loo roll, sainsburys 2 minutes from HHH helps here).

To be honest the films start early and finish late so you don't need to really worry about the accomodation.

I tend to be really picky but i had no problem with the accommodation last year, then again I wasn't anywhere near Puppy. The boy nearly exploded when he touched Mellissa George last year, just imagine what he was like when he got back to the halls.

I found HHH alright, it is what it is and that's a bed to sleep in and breakfast in the morning

Thanks for the advice about the bathroom all! :) I know i shouldn't expect too much from the bathroom situation, after all you get what you pay for. :lol: Will try to remember the advice about the loo roll too!

Must remember to take some loo roll too, oh there's nothing worse than being caught out.

Also, I think if their toilets are a bit smelly, maybe if each and everyone of us bought one of those cheap stick on the wall air freshners and then next time their cleaner goes in, they'll get the message :) Is this place listed on Trip Advisor by any chance? :)

I've paid for my stay now anyway...not expecting luxury, just want the basics done well.
