The Grand Folly Hotel at Goodwood (what a great idea)

What a superb idea.  You can experience the Goodwood Festival of Speed differently this year, by staying at the nearby luxury Grand Folly Hotel for a truly unique adventure under the stars.  How cool is that?

Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture, will be upon us on 12-15 July 2018. And this year it’s a special one, as it’s the event’s Silver Jubilee. The Festival’s 25 years will be celebrated in style, featuring some major landmarks in its history. As well as this, you can expect to immerse yourself in the thrill of the much-loved Hillclimb, feast your eyes over super cars and Edwardian leviathans alike in the paddocks, and enjoy the aesthetics of the Style et Luxe contest entries.

But the adventure doesn’t need to stop at the end of each festival day. Why not check into The Grand Folly Hotel any time between 10th-16th July where you can expect excitement without sacrificing comfort. This extraordinary boutique pop-up hotel offers all the luxuries of your favourite accommodation, whilst bringing you closer to the stars. Designed to extend your exhilaration of the Festival of Speed, just 1 mile away from the event and with a regular shuttle bus service, The Grand Folly Hotel is sure to be your new favourite pit-stop.

Has a day on the track left you rather peckish? Then choose from our two on-site restaurants for a bite to eat. The Windmill Lawns is our fine dining restaurant where guests can enjoy delicacies such as tuna ceviche, autumn sea bass and a chocolate and 24 carat gold tart. Or visit our jazz-club style restaurant, the Tinwood Live Lounge, where you can enjoy your evening meal up-close and personal to the nightly performers. Mingle with like-minded motor enthusiasts whilst you experience a truly entertaining evening. The lounge’s grill menu offers classic and tradition from high quality local produce and is the perfect accompaniment to your evening entertainment.

Prepared whatever the weather, The Grand Folly Hotel boasts an internal and external bar area. Alternatively, for those looking for a peaceful end to the day, there is a comfy lounge area complete with sofas, coffee tables and free WiFi, where guests can relax. Want to take that relaxation one step further? Then make sure to visit the pamper tent where our team of professional beauticians can look after those tired feet or that pinchy back for you, so you feel revitalised and ready to continue the festival adventure.

At the end of your thrill-filled day, retreat to your luxury canvas suite for evening of splendid comfort. These spacious bell tent rooms are beautifully decorated with modern, luxurious furnishing, and include a seating area where you can unwind after a day on your feet. Towels, toiletries and linen will be provided and the hotel offers on-site shower and toilet facilities with separate changing rooms and hair drying facilities. And don’t worry about your belongings, we provide 24 hr on-site security.

Experience the Festival of Speed differently this year. Stay at The Grand Folly Hotel any time between 10th-16th July for a truly unforgettable event.
