Innovative Pop-up Hotel

"Just returned home from a two night stay at the innovative 'pop-up' hotel. We were attending the Goodwood Festival of Speed and The Grand Folly is only about a mile from Goodwood. Couldn't be closer! The hotel provides a shuttle service to and from Goodwood which is brilliant. The tents were spotless, and the bed comfortable. The food was fantastic and the bar and restaurant looked great. It was so much fun staying under canvas the whole weekend. We had 'posh' showers and they were kept spotless at all times. Available parking close to our tent. Couldn't recommend this highly enough." J Willis (GB)

The magic of The Grand Folly Hotel is that no two events are the same. That being said we will always ensure that your every need is taken care of.

The hotel boasts a fully licensed bar with evening entertainment, two dining areas and an exhibition parking lawn area where guests can take drinks in the evening looking at the beautiful array of guests collectors cars.

The 5m Bell tents are laid out with a 2m corridor allowing safe and easy access. Numbered rooms, lanterns and runway lights are there to guide you in the night. Our luxury shower and washroom facilities are never more than a short distance away and our pamper tent attendants ensure that these are regularly inspected and cleaned. 24hr secure parking runs alongside the tented area so that any extra luggage can be kept nearby at all times.

Be sure to check out our pamper tent where you will find our Spa facility. Here you can do your hair and make up with trained beauticians on hand to offer any help or styling advice you may need. We encourage guests to relax, have a massage and a facial and let us make sure you'll be turning heads as you enter the event this year. For a full range of Spa and Beauty treatments please refer to our dedicated page and be sure to book before you arrive as spaces are limited.

Behind The Scenes - The Showers and Washrooms

Your comfort is our number one priority and for that reason we've spared no expense at giving you the best facilities the glamping world has to offer. We have high pressure hot water pumps feeding from a 4000l tank that draws from two mains water supplies so even if the water from town stops for any reason, you'll still be able to shower with hot water. Even with every shower running on site this will not affect the temperature or pressure of the supply. Our grey waste is all filtered and disposed of responsibly and in accordance with inspections from the council and independent inspections from the water board and Banana Skin Food Safety.

Live well, eat well and sleep well.
