The Elstead has pleasant playing conditions for a chess congress and we are on the ground floor with easy access. There is some parking around the building, but it is usually fairly easy to park in Knyveton Road. For those staying at the hotel, they have quoted an attractive rate of £35 bed and breakfast per night - please mention the chess event to ensure you have the discount. There are 50 en-suite rooms.
The centre of Bournemouth and the beaches are close by and the railway station is also in walking distance.
