Cresta Court Hotel Stamp Fair, Altrincham, 5 August 2012
Cresta Court Hotel
This is a nice hotel with friendly staff. It has a decent amount of parking space but do mention your car registration number at reception. The car park entry is roughly from where the photograph was taken; if you go down the wrong side of the hotel it's a bit of a loop to get back to where the entry is. I know, as we had to take the loop...
It's a pleasant, local fair (and this is the second time we have been to it) with about seven dealers who have a good range of material BUT my wife and I both hate being forced to pay an admission fee as we had to do here. I can't think of the last time we had to pay an entry fee to a stamp fair elsewhere, so it must have been at least six or seven years ago. It's bad enough to be charged at antique fairs and postcard fairs, stamp fairs should be beyond that practice.
Would we go again? Yes, if we were in the area.
