Accommodation

Please Note: Delegates need to check prices with the hotels direct and make their own bookings.

SECTION 1)  Suggestions from the University of Westminster, which have special hotel rates for those booking who mention that they are attending the HNS Conference at the university.

Below is a list of hotels nearby to the campuses. They’ve all been visited by members of staff, who believe that they are very good options for visiting parents, relatives and also for students themselves. There are a range of options to suit all budgets and where there is a special rate, it’s listed. To book, the delegate should contact the hotel directly and inform reception that he/she is attending a conference at the University of Westminster.  This will trigger the discount where applicable.
