Best Western Marks Tey Hotel London Road, Marks Tey, Colchester CO6 1DU .

The Best Western Marks Tey Hotel will be the venue for all evening functions. Our club has booked a limited number of rooms at the special rate of £80 per double, £70 single, room per night to include a full cooked breakfast. The hotel has, unfortunately, a strict ‘No Dogs in Rooms’ policy but they have allowed us a grass area for ‘quick’ exercising of dogs. About 100 yards from the hotel is a very large grass field which the farmer is happy for us to use as an exercise area.

Thursday evening will be a social evening. As 2016 is Iceni’s 40th anniversary year, Friday night will be a ‘celebration night’ with included entertainment. Meal costs are £15 per head on Thursday and £17 on Friday, for a three course dinner, and £28.50 for the three course Gala Presentation Dinner with tea/coffee on Saturday.

Bookings can only be made through the Trials Manager.

Other accommodation options (including a deal on caravan sites) are available on request
