Horror Festival
of Wales

14 – 17 November 2024


On campus accommodation

The closest and cheapest accommodation to Abertoir is the Aberystwyth University campus Bunkhouse. The Bunkhouse is a short walk (~5 minutes) from Aberystwyth Arts Centre, where the festival takes place!

The price for a single room is £42.00 per night.

The price for a double room is £60.00 per night.

The rate does not include breakfast, but the nearby TaMedDa canteen serves breakfast including hot food.

Your room will be in a shared flat of between 6 and 10 rooms, with shared shower room, bathroom and kitchen facilities – perfect if you’re coming with a group of friends or looking to save some money!

Unfortunately none of the rooms on offer as part of this deal are wheelchair accessible. Ground-floor rooms can be reserved on request if needed. You can view the AccessAble guide to The Bunkhouse for full information, but if you need to know more don’t hesitate to get in touch.

To see the full information about The Bunkhouse and to make a booking visit the Aberystwyth University website.

Information regarding cancellations including those due to Covid-19 can be found on the Bunkhouse website linked above.

All accommodation bookings are made through Aberystwyth University and not Abertoir. If you have any other questions about campus accommodation please email  to make an enquiry.

The festival takes place on the Aberystwyth University campus, which is an approximately 15-20 minute walk from the town centre.
