I have re-booked. Fair play to them - the room is exactly the same price.

I had cancelled my booking with the Abbey Lodge before the new dates for Betameeta were announced. While they had promised a full refund if the room was cancelled before 10am the day before arrival, they have refused to give me a full refund and are not replying to my emails  Angry I therefore refuse to give them my custom and stay at the Abbey Lodge. I'll sort out somewhere else for me to stay....  Embarrassed

Perhaps if some of the others who have booked point out that this is a 'group' booking Theo might get his money and an apology? Not good though.

It might be worth giving them a call  - they could not have been more helpful for me so it's sad to hear the customer service is being  a bit patchy.

I don't mind calling them if Theo hasn't already sorted something else?

I visited in person and have been in contact with Theo.

Thank you Neil for going to the Abbey Lodge on my behalf and thanks everybody else who offered to help.

I think I didn't make myself clear when I said the Abbey Lodge refused to give me a full refund. The operative word there was full. The Abbey Lodge refunded me 120 of my 130 but decided to keep 10 as an administrative charge. Before booking my room in February, I enquired about cancellations and was told a full refund will be given if cancelled by 10:00am the day before arrival. The "penalty" of 10 is not a lot of money but it's annoyed me that they didn't keep their promise of full refund and annoyed me even more when they refused to reply to my polite emails questioning this previously unmentioned penalty or administrative charge.

I have requested a chargeback from my credit card and was going to book into the Premier Inn at about half the cost of the Abbey Lodge. But Neil told me the Premier Inn is a fair distance from the Abbey Lodge so I decided to book into the Gothic grand mansion nearby which is the Mercure Bradford Bankfield Hotel. It's only 5 minutes down the road and cost me less than the Abbey Lodge (I am a an Accor Live Limitless member so get a discount  Wink )

Sorry guys, I'll be the odd one out again staying at a different place but then again driving a Trevi I am very used to being the odd one out  Grin

I am very much hoping that Betameeta will finally go ahead in a few weeks time. I met up with Tony yesterday at the Festival Italia in Brands Hatch and as well as arranging to meet on the Friday for a convoy drive up north, we also thought it may be a good idea to incorporate a visit to the Italian Wheels and Wings event at the Cosford RAF Museum on Sunday 13th. It's organised by the Italian Auto Moto Club and payment for this event must be made to the Club by 6th September. See http://www.italianautomotoclub.co.uk/ for details.

Entry to the museum is free and the museum normally charges 5 for parking. The IAMC are charging 7 for non members to cover the museum's parking charge plus a bit extra for them for organising the event and providing a dedicated Italian car display area (up to 100 cars).

Unless of course Neil has something different or better planned for us for Sunday.....

As mentioned above, Tony and I have provisionally agreed to meet up and drive up north to Saltaire in convoy with a lunch stop about half-way. So the provisional plan at the moment is to meet at South Mimms services on the M25 around 10:30am and drive north via the A1 stopping at The Welby Arms in Allington near Grantham https://thewelbyarmsallington.com/. We should be there around 12:30pm.

"The Welby Arms, Allington is a popular country pub providing good food and a well managed bar. It is a favourite stop for travellers on the A1". It seems to have a good selection of food for both a full hearty lunch or light snack and it's only about 5 minutes off the A1.

With the current situation it is likely that we'll have to pre-book to be on the safe side so if anyone would like to join us there for lunch, please post here and I'll book in a couple of weeks. if you want to join our convoy but don't want lunch, I think we should be leaving the Welby Arms around 1:30pm.

I like the Cosford idea.

I'll be travelling up pm so will miss out on the convoy - I'd look out of place anyway!

How many might be up for Cosford ? The GTV owners group would like to know!

I'm up for it but all depends on whether Neil has anything else arranged for us for Sunday.

We need to decide if and who is going to this and pre-book tickets by 6th September.
