The benefits of spending Christmas in a luxury boutique hotel

1. The Food

All of the FIH Hotels pride themselves on the quality of the food they serve in their restaurants and this will not change with their Christmas Feasts. Christmas is the one time of the year that it is acceptable to eat as much as you like, so it couldn’t be more perfect being at a hotel with fabulous food and plenty of it.

For example; The East Lodge Country House Christmas Break includes 5 different dinner and lunch menus throughout the stay, mulled wine and cocktails, afternoon tea upon arrival and full English or continental breakfasts each morning, enough food to add a few pounds or more.

2. Relaxing

Christmas is actually a holiday, and to me a holiday is when you aren’t at work and you should just sit back and relax. However, it has to be said that preparing for Christmas and cooking the Christmas dinner can be one of the most stressful times of the year. If you spend Christmas in a hotel you are able to sit back and have everything sorted out for you. No cooking, no cleaning and certainly no washing up.

The Lovelady Shields’ Christmas Day will be a traditional Christmas for their guests where everything is taken care of and will be a leisurely affair with the emphasis on enjoyment and relaxation.

3. The Atmosphere

Christmas decorations always put a smile on my face, but hotels always seem to have such bigger Christmas trees and more beautiful decorations. Add these to the beautifully decorated interiors to make for a cosy and festive atmosphere. Such warm welcomes make you feel right at home. Enjoy real log fires and relax in sumptuous luxurious lounges.

The Borrowdale Gates Hotel Christmas break includes carol singers, a Christmas quiz and mulled wine and mince pies by the roaring fire really adding to the festive spirit.

4. The Surroundings

The Fine Individual Hotels are located all around the UK, but wherever the vicinity, there is always something new and beautiful to look at. For example the hotels in the Lake District are surrounded by outstanding natural beauty.  Reducing the stresses of Christmas by spending it at a hotel, has the added benefits of giving you precious hours of free time to explore the grounds of the hotel and the surrounding areas.

For example the Lakeside Hotel and Spa are incorporating a lake cruise with their Christmas break, you will sail around the lake for two hours and be served some warm winter treats.
