Everything you need to know about the pool accommodation package

2024 Norbreck Pool Accommodation Options

We have frozen accommodation prices for the last couple of years but our costs and the hotel costs have been increasing during this period, meaning the accommodation costs for 2024 have now increased by a modest amount, below the 2023 average rate of inflation, keeping our event great value for money. The hotel car parking is still free for all hotel guests providing they put their car registration number into the computerised system when booking in.  Hotel bar prices will continue to be discounted in the arena bar for our players. 

If you are wanting FREE tournament wristbands, you must book the ‘Golden 8 Ball Pool Accommodation Package’, with the Norbreck Castle Hotel, using the official booking form.

A £50.00 non refundable deposit will be required per person to secure their accommodation booking; this is paid directly to the hotel. The hotel will contact you for the deposit payment.

The remaining balance must be paid 6 weeks prior to arrival. Guests cannot pay the balance on arrival.  Any rooms not fully paid for 28 days before the event will be cancelled. To pay the balance, please call the hotel direct on 01253 352 341 – press 2 for events and ask for Jade or Martin – this is for balance payment only.

IMPORTANT – Guests must check-in using the debit or credit card they used to pay for their booking. This policy is to stop charge-back fraud.  Please contact the hotel in advance if you are unable to bring the correct card.

The ‘Golden 8 Ball Pool Accommodation Package’ can only be booked using the official ‘online’ accommodation booking form after your team has been accepted. This will be emailed to the team manager and can also be accessed from this website, but only after your team has been accepted.

Hotel car parking charge – now FREE for guests!

Guests of the hotel can now get free car parking – simply add your car registration number and the duration of your stay into the electronic parking system, located at reception, when checking into your hotel room.  Car park ticket will expire at 12pm next day, so please remember to ‘top-up’ if playing in the late stages on Sunday.

It is the responsibility of guests to make sure their car is correctly registered with the hotel car parking system. We have no control over this system and cannot be held responsible for those that get tickets. 

 If guests fail to add their registration number properly, or select the correct amount of time for their stay, they will get a ticket. This service is run by a 3rd party firm called, ‘Parking Eye’, and is not controlled by the Norbreck.  Car park ticket will expire at 12pm next day, so please remember to ‘top-up’ if playing in the late stages on Sunday. 

For those not staying at the hotel, you can use the hotel car park but must pay at the meter.

Guests can park their cars on neighbouring streets or on the main road, in front of the hotel, for free, at their own risk.

Important supplement information

A supplement of £18 per night will be added for sole occupancy of double rooms.

There is limited availability of single rooms, so please be prepared to share a twin or family room, to avoid paying a sole occupancy supplement.

Sea view rooms can be secured with a supplement of £10 extra per room, per night.

Express check-in

Teams that fully pay for their accommodation before arrival will get an express check-in and skip the queues.

Extend your stay with discounted additional nights!

Start your weekend early and arrive on Wednesday 12th June 2024 for the Pro-Am event! The arena will be open from 11am for practice and flyers. Or simply extend your stay to enjoy the delights of Blackpool. We’ve secured a deal with the Norbreck, to allow guests to extend their stay before and after the tournament at a discounted price. Costs are £35 per person, per night, for half board, or £30 per person, per night, for bed and breakfast. This cost is built into the 4 night stay above.

Prefer to stay in alternative accommodation?

No problem, players are welcome to stay in alternative accommodation BUT must purchase a player’s wristband at a cost of £50 per player, per weekend. Or buy a combined player’s wristband for both weekends for £80 and save £20.

These are available for sale at the event during team registration on Thursday. Spectator festival wristbands are £20 each and cover both weekends, or £10 for a day band. ALL MONEY RAISED FROM SPECTATOR WRISTBANDS IS DONATED TO THE CHOSEN CHARITY OF THE FESTIVAL.

Players attempting to play in any main event without the appropriate wristband risk being disqualified from the tournament. Both players and spectators require wristbands to gain entry to the event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
