we are a group of elderly bikers(50 to late 80's) wanting accomodation for the 2008 tt races.We would need 3 doubles and 1 twin room in Douglas Can anyone tell us the dates of the official races, we are not that interested in the practise session?Also can anyone suggest a good cheap hotel Thanks
Dates are 24th May - 6th June, apparently.
You might find the IOM TT forum full of useful titbits:
iomtt.com/Home/Forum/ShowPos... is the relevant post.
Book ferry/accommodation as soon as you possibly can.
You will definitely need to book as soon as you can. Ferry bookings become very limited and very expensive closer to the time.
The best and usually cheapest way to book accomodation is to ask the tourism board for a list of Homestay properties. (ie; staying as guests in private homes, usually at approx. £25pppn)
As with the ferry - best to look early to ensure you get exactly what you want.
Good Luck!! If you do manage to make the TT give me a shout!
