Festival Hotel

Our Festival Hotel is The Holiday Inn, The Crighton, Bankend Road, Dumfries DG1 4ZZ

We have made a block booking here – you can reserve a room with them but you need to quote this code – Ukulele – to take advantage of our special rate. You will need to telephone the hotel on 01387 272410 and press 3 to speak to one of the reception staff. You can then quote the code – or tell them it is under the uke allocation. If any problems ask for Liesa who is the events manager or Rob Dixon who is the general manager. Unfortunately you can’t book this online. If you try to book it on line or without the code it will show up as not available. They can accommodate 170 people so you will need to be quick if you want to stay here. We have seen two of the rooms and they look lovely and clean and are air conditioned. They have some triple rooms (executive)and some interconnecting rooms. The manager is very accommodating so we are planning to have the Friday night jam here plus a late night celebration on Saturday. In fact jamming can take place throughout the weekend in the comfy lounge bar.


Campervan Parking

The estate has given permission for overnight parking (and sleeping) of small to medium sized campervans. We have booked two rooms at the hotel where you can access toilets and showers. There will be no facilities for chemical waste disposal and we are not aware of external drinking water taps. But you should be able to fill your kettle up from the hotel rooms we have set aside for you. There is a modest cost for this, click here for details.
