Some of the Hammers fans made a weekend of it and stopped off in Hartlepool. I'd never have thought it was party central but they seem to like it. Guess this would be like us staying in Southend(?) for an away match at WHUFC. Would have thought they'd have stayed in Sunnyland or the toon. http://www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=125718&st=0&sk=t&sd=a After many successful trips to Hartlepool over the past 20 years..I've decided to take the Hotel over for our away game with Sunderland which is on Saturday 4th Dec. The Weekend includes 2 nights in the lovely Grand Hotel right in the centre of town. Luxury breakfast is included and is a cold buffet followed by a traditional English Breakfast cooked to your own personal order. Rooms available are Twins, Doubles and Executive Triples. Single rooms are available for a small extra supplement (£15) Prices are £30 per person per night and already half the rooms have gone to the regulars. Hartlepool is a Party Town with 3 seperate areas and some lovely restaurants around the Marina.
