Information for residential participants

For residential participants, accommodation is included from Tuesday 3-Friday 6 September (3 nights) on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at Winchester Hotel and Spa. Accommodation is on a single occupancy basis, unless double occupancy has been booked.

Check-in is available from 14:00 on the scheduled day of arrival from the main reception. Reception is manned 24 hours a day. On the day of departure, please vacate your room by 11:00 ensuring all personal items are removed. Luggage can be stored in Chaucer room 2 located on the ground floor. Please collect a label from reception as you will need to return this to reclaim your luggage.

On arrival, the hotel will ask for a credit or debit card to take an authorisation for any extras. This will allow you to charge items to your room. If you do not wish to leave a credit card, please notify the hotel.

In order to ensure check in to the hotel is as smooth as possible, please email conferences@iop.org confirming your expected arrival time at the hotel.

During the conference, breakfast will be served in the Hutton's brassiere from 07:00-09:30. Breakfast is either continental or a full English breakfast with tea and coffee.
