The TFNation 2018 exclusive nightly rate is as follows:

- £70.00 - Single Deluxe room - (including breakfast)
- £80.00 - Twin Deluxe room - (including breakfast for up to two people)
- £80.00 - Queen Deluxe - (including breakfast for one or two people)

(Special rates are strictly subject to availability.)


In previous years we have also been able to secure an allocation of Executive rooms and Family rooms. We are hopeful that this will also be the case for TFNation 2018, however we ask attendees to please be mindful of the fact that these more expensive room types are provided at the Hiltons discretion, based upon the needs of all guests for the weekend.

Please note that Family room options are ONLY to be booked by families and not by single attendees. Please be mindful of those whose entire weekend depends on this room type.

Thank you for your understanding.


Accommodation is available at our discounted rate on the following nights:

- Friday 17th August 2017
- Saturday 18th August 2017
- Sunday 19th August 2017

As with previous years, we have requested that the discount is extended to additional nights (either side of our contracted dates) to assist attendees who wish to stay for longer than the convention runs. Again, we ask attendees to please remember that it is ultimately a matter of hotel discretion as to whether it is able to accommodate additional nights at the reduced rate.

Details on how to book your room will be forwarded to you with your TFNation ticket confirmation email, once sales open on 3rd February 2018. We anticipate that demand will be exceptionally high, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
