I'm not for a moment wanting to scaremonger, or anything, but look at the disused tunnels and air shafts marked on that map! Don't be suprised if the main stage suddenly collapses on Sunday afternoon and we have a full-on Chilean miners situation.

does anyone know if all the rooms at the premier inn have one double and one single bed?

i thought you could have 3 adults per room but apparently it's only 2 :( but there are 3 of us! so we're kind of fucked. i mean, i'm sure it would be easy to sneak 3 people into a room, but if there's only one bed then it could be tricky. i've booked a "double" room, which is what i think i did last year, and it had a single and a double bed. or maybe i booked a twin last year, i'm not even sure! which room type has the double + single bed?

anyway, i'm sounding all panicky and confused because that's how i feel right now. the stupidest part of this is that i had a family room at the travelodge booked but cancelled it a couple of days ago. fuck's sake!

Hello! I had booked two rooms at the Premier Inn but since the other person now no longer needs it I have just cancelled it. This should mean that they're no longer fully booked. Not sure how long it takes to go through the system but I'd think you could get it straight away if you phoned them. Sorry I didn't just let someone else take the booking but I didn't want to be worrying about any money complications at this late stage.

I should have added that it was a double for 3 nights from Friday.

Hm, I think I just booked it. It was a tad expensive, but I went for it.

hey guys - does anyone know if a twin room at the premier inn is 2 single beds (like most places!) or one double and one single? last year my room had one double and one single but i don't remember if i booked a twin room or a double. ANYWAY, i know this sounds like a stupid question but we just all wanna fit in the room AND have a bed to sleep on.

i did! i asked if we could switch to a room with one single and one double bed, but all she said was "are there 2 people? i'll switch you to a room with 2 beds"

but i've been told that it probably will have one double and one single so everything's good!

(and thanks to everyone who's been lovely and offered help/room etc. you guys are the best!)

I think the one double/one single option is referred to as a 'Family Room'. Lenny Henry told me so.

I'm just about to let go of a room, but sadly it's a twin. The buggers won't let me amend the booking from 3 nights to just 1. This is particularly sad as I'll almost certainly miss out on the now-legendary iPad party with the Spanish dudes and all the other cool kids. Unless I can persuade my brother that the best way to get a cab home is to trek through terrifying woods to the Premier Inn and sit drlnking for a couple of hours...

If there was one disappointing thing about Indietracks this year, it was the lack of partying at the Premier Inn. Better raise your game for 2013, Team Ripley, eh?

Really? Friday night we got 'moved outside' for being too loud, and i believe Sunday night whilst outside the manager paid another visit.. Saturday night we were too busy with our pizza to get involved.

You missed out Green, perhaps it's YOU that needs to raise your game!

Vast improvement on the breakfast this year, i do like a buffet.

Bugger. I had no idea.

Next year there needs to be a proper Ripley Premier Inn Indietracks Party hashtag.

You should all come to Moss Cottage next year. They held a special disco for us, and you could advise them on future interior decoration.

Did they? The place seem deserted when I got back. What time was that? Did you all hide when you saw me coming?

Moss Cottage was completely deserted every night we came back. That was fine though because i'm old now and just wanted to sleep.

Did you get back to late and miss the Sunday night disco at Moss Cottage?

I only peeked in before retiring to bed because I am even older. Lynso tells me there was Northern soul and sausage rolls.

I helped the new landlord redecorate the bar area before I left on Sunday morning. Anyone staying at Moss Cottage next year won't recognize the place.

I saw Lynsey there on the Saturday night but we were back too late and the bar had been closed.

I think Sam had a personal invite to the landlord's "fun dungeon", down in the cellar.

I not only shared his bed, but I munched on his breakfast.
