The 2018 JOC Spring Weekend is at the Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells.
I have now confirmed the tour accommodation and the weekend to locations such as the West Coast of Wales, Snowdonia National Park and Portmeirion plus Brecon Beacons depending on your route or number of days staying - 2 or 3 night weekend.
Based out of Llandrindod Wells, arrival on the Friday at your leisure with any southern route options that can include the Brecon Beacons.
Saturday we will take a long day trip out that will head north form the hotel and around / through the Snowdonia National Park to include a stop at Port Meirion before heading back to the hotel. This day will be a good 200 miles and will be an all day trip.
Sunday we will head across the Mid Wales Hills towards the coast and then travel down the coast towards Aberaeron then a route back across the hills towards the hotel and then from there head off back home OR for those that choose to stay the Sunday night a night to relax before heading home on Monday.
The Metropole has been used by many car groups including Mercedes, Aston Martin, Morgan and BMW and is a great base for us. We held our 2007 Spring Weekend here. They are providing the driving routes and allocated parking for the JOC in the hotel car park. They also have on hand locally a classic car garage should things go the wrong / not to plan. It has been used by BMW Owners Club for a number of years and is sold out for their trips (identical to this one for the last four years).
At the hotel you will get the allocated parking, use of the leisure facilities and can take advantage of the spa they also have. The meals will be a full English breakfast plus a three course (5 choice menu) with tea and coffee afterwards.
You can book in for two or three nights ( Friday to Sunday / Monday) and choose which grade of room you prefer for a minimum two night stay.

2 adults & 2 children - £172.00 per room per night - Adults on half board, children on bed and breakfast
** I have questioned the family room rate and they have said from experience very few children want a full three course adult style meal in the evening and so menus will be provided for the children to choose from and this is paid for directly to the hotel on check out **
The hotel is dog friendly but the may be complications as they do not allow dogs in their restaurant and so I advise anyone wishing to take their dog with them, that they check with the hotel as to their arrangements.
Rates includes use of their leisure centre - swimming pool ( spa facilities chargeable on site).
To book please contact the hotel (http://www.metropole.co.uk) directly by email or telephone to book your chosen room by phoning the main switchboard on 01597823700 and asking for reservations. After quoting “Jensen Owners Club” guests would secure booking each with a £20 per person non-refundable deposit.
We look forward to seeing you there and hope that the weather gods are kind to us, even if only dry :D :D :D
There will be extras arranged with respective costs (Entrance to Port Meirion for example) and so these will be advised in due course.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
