General Information - Montpellier "Grand Bal Ecossais"

Our "Welcome Desk" opens at 15h00, the ball begins 16h00, on the Saturday.

The ball is held in the C.R.E.P.S. a gymnasium inside a sports education complex, roughly one kilometer northwest from the old centre of Montpellier. (See map reference A2 of the pocket map provided by the Tourist Office).

The entrance is at 2 avenue Charles Flahault, close to Stade Philippides (a large sports ground) ; street parking is normally available outside.
The nearest tramway stop at "Stade Philippides" is about 500 meters away, but bus no 7 passes much nearer CREPS (the bus-stop is named "La Pile").  Both tram and bus can be taken from the railway station in the town centre.
For those arriving directly from the motorway (A9).... come off at the airport exit ("Montpellier Est." - exit no 29) and drive towards the town centre. After crossing the river Lez (about 2,5 km from the A9) one can then use the map to find CREPS.

Hotels :
See list below.

Montpellier is well supplied with hotel accommodation but due to the fact that the tourist season has already started by June, it is advisable to book as much as possible in advance.

In general, hotels in or near Montpellier divide into three types, namely,

a) budget hotels mostly chains such as Formule 1, 1ère Classe, Campanile, L'Etape, Nuit d'Hotel, Village Hotel, etc, suitable for short stays, but generally a little outside of town, often close to the motorway (A9) or near the airport, and thus necessitating a car.
b) a range of family hotels inside and around the city, at all price/comfort levels.
c) chain hotels, mainly the various 'brands' of Accor (eg. Ibis, Mercure and Sofitel)

To book a hotel, use the telephone numbers as shown in the Tourist Map provided with your ticket and ball program, or use the list overleaf, or consult the relevant website, particularly for types a) and c).
Prices are generally by room, not by person, but breakfast is normally an extra charge per person. Prices tend to be about 30-45 euros for the budget hotels, slightly higher for the hotels inside Montpellier and from 60 up to 100 for the various Accor hotels.
