Glastonbury Festival Glamping Accommodation
The Pop-Up Hotel, Glastonbury Festival
We went to the Glastonbury Festival 2013 but went with one thing in mind … we were not slumming it, we had luxury glamping in mind.
We found the Pop-up Hotel online and saw that this would be the ideal Glastonbury Glamping Accommodation. Having visited the website, we decided on our accommodation; So on the morning Glastonbury tickets went on sale we were hopeful of getting tickets…. and so we did. Immediately we called the Pop-Up Hotel and secure our glamping accommodation with a deposit. Once booked we waited for June 2013 to come, paying the remaining amount in the previous months.
Even before we arrived we had lots of contact from Jessica and Graham from the Pop-Up hotel. We had been given directions to the designated Pop-up Hotel Car Park near to the Glastonbury festival site. When we arrived we were helped with our bags and driven to the Popup Hotel site by a very plush Land Rover (which I was very well impressed with).
On arrival, our check-in was processed very quickly and we were shown to our pre-erected tent, which would be our home away from home for the next four nights while at the Glastonbury Festival. I had been very impressed by how well our booking had been dealt with, nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
It is a family-friendly hotel ideal for festivals. I have gone past the stage of slumming it and trying to do Glastonbury without this sort of quality accommodation would be tough (I would probably have gone home as it was raining on the evening we arrived and some poor guys, first-timers, were struggling trying to erect a tent …. for me, no thanks).
There is a strict no drug, no noise, no trouble policy at the Popup Hotel and the public area is bright, secure, lively and has free WiFi (always useful and a nice touch).
Top Notch-Glamping at Glastonbury
This glamping is top notch. The deluxe rooms had charging points ideal for me so that I could charge my phone and DSLR camera battery etc. The inside of the tent was very homely with lots of very nice finishing touches such as fairy lights, a bottle of lavender pillow mist, storage box, full-length mirror, deck-chair, mats and complimentary toiletries. The tent is warm and the beds are very comfortable and you are guaranteed a good night’s sleep.
There was even a spa and hairdressers available at extra charge.
The Pop-up Hotel is only 10-15 minutes from Glastonbury entrance and it is an easy walk to and from the hotel.
There were hot power showers in luxury blocks with clean toilets serviced regularly which was a real treat after a long day at the festival.
If you are looking for something to eat before heading to the festival, great hot breakfasts were available from about £9 per person.
The areas are well-lit areas at night with a security presence, therefore, only those staying get into the hotel property. There is also some nice music (normally acoustic sessions) in the evenings if you didn’t have enough music during the day and food is served almost all day.
The staff at the Pop-up hotel are very friendly and we would like to thank especially Nevin, Joe, Graham, and Jennifer who were all very helpful to us during our stay and couldn’t have done enough.
We loved our stay and we will certainly return to the Pop-Up Hotel at Glastonbury. If you are looking for a luxury accommodation option during the Glastonbury Festival then check out the Pop-Up Hotel Glastonbury!
For Glastonbury 2015 we stayed once again with The Popup Hotel. There were a few new items such as more lounge areas near reception, there was even a swimming pool at one point. Wifi Continued to be a feature which was widely appreciated.
Overall this is a wonderful glamping experience and if you are going to Glastonbury, or indeed any of the other festivals which to Pop-up Hotel are in attendance, then certainly book it.
