My fiance and I spent 3 nights at the Pembury Guest House in Silverstone village for the MotoGP last weekend. I had originally booked to stay in the Premier Inn at Northamption (20 miles away) for the 3 nights; however, chanced my luck by emailing Joyce (about 4-6 months before the event) to see if she had any spare rooms available for that weekend. Unfortunately, she was fully booked; however, she offered to keep me in mind if any cancellations should occur. Joyce kept in touch with me every couple of months, letting me know she hadn't forgotten about me; however, she still had no availability.
Skip forward until a week before the MotoGP and Joyce dropped me an email, letting me know she had a last minute cancellation and wanted to know if I would like first refusal. Of course I did.
The rate of the accommodation itself was more expensive than the Premier Inn that we were originally booked into; however, it was worth every penny. Joyce and Martin were absolutely lovely, inviting us into their house. The room was a lovely en suit room that was nice and clean. Each day, we came home to the room having been tidied and chocolates being left for us on our pillows along with some local home made cookies. It was a nice touch.
Each morning, we had breakfast cooked for us at 8am and it set us up nicely for the day. The only complaint I have (and it has nothing to do with the guest house) is I wish I had read the breakfast menu that was left in the room before the last day - turns out We could have asked for a pack lunch (for a nominal fee) which would have saved us pigging out on fatty foot in at the circuit.
The guest house itself is within walking distance of the circuit and just around the corner from the local pub. An ideal situation.
