Before you ask "What errors did I get" - by not working I mean I can't ping the other VM.

Still not got it working. I assigned the 1st VM 192.168.200.1 and the second VM 192.168.200.2. That didn't work so I also assigned the host to 192.168.200.100. That didn't work. I also disabled ipv6 in case that confused the issue. Still no joy. Imagine, for an instant, I am really really dumb. Explain in simple steps how this should work and how to go about it.

I believe so. According to the help dialog it is 6.0.192.0

Okay, now what? The both VMs are on Loop Back Adaptor but there is no network between the machines. Do I need to set a static IP address for them?

This seems the most logical suggestion, I will try this first.

I am using VirtualPC - hence why it is tagged with VirtualPC. Maybe I should of made that more explicit in my post. If I disconnect the host from the network and look at the network (under computer) nothing appears. If I connect to the hotel network and do the same again I can see the VM's (as well as several other machines). Also the VM's non-static IP addresses are in the same range as my physical machine.

Nope. I haven't got it working. I will do an update to my question.

I don't want to communicate with any other machines on the hotel network. I just want the machines internal to my machine to communicate with each other. I will try what your edit suggests tonight.

How can a hotel network stop me from creating a LAN on my own machine? Did you read my question?

Just looked and there are no options to disable Bluetooth in bios. Turning it off via the bluetooth menu doesn't work either.
