Bestival FAQs

When can I check in?

Where is Hotel Bell Tent located at Bestival?

Bestival will be at a new venue in 2017 so our exact location within the festival site is yet to be confirmed.

I'm travelling by car. What are the parking arrangements?

Guests will be issued with one car parking pass per booking in the run up to the event. 

What are the reception opening hours?

Normal reception opening hours are 8am-12am. When reception is closed,  there will be a 24-hour point of contact for use in emergencies.

Will there be security?

Hotel Bell Tent is an exclusive area located within the wider boutique camping site, where there will be a security personnel presence. Only wristbanded guests are permitted.

As always, Hotel Bell Tent can not be liable for lost or stolen items, and we advise against bringing valuable items.

Will there be food and drinks available?

There will be food and drink sold nearby and in the festival arena.

Will there be electricity in my accommodation?

Accommodation is not supplied with power.  However, guests can use the phone charging tent to charge phones and cameras.

What essential items should I bring?

We highly recommend you bring a torch, lots of layers for when the sun goes down, plenty of warm bedding (if you’re bringing your own) and cosy pyjamas. Bringing an extra blanket is always a good idea just in case the night times are a little cooler.

Can I bring alcohol?

Please refer to the festival website for any rules regarding the bringing of alcohol.

Can I use a barbeque or camping stove?

At the Bestival site, camping stoves and barbecues are only permitted in designated areas.

What about the environment?

At Hotel Bell Tent we respect the environment and try our hardest to look after all the beautiful spaces where we set up camp. We welcome all guests' help in keeping our area clean and tidy and assisting us in leaving no trace. Please help us by using the bins dotted around the site, and bagging up your rubbish so it can easily be recycled and disposed of.
