Bespoke Hotels – a Bank Holiday Guide

The May bank holiday is fast approaching this weekend and the summer very much on its way, we’re all keeping our fingers and toes crossed for warm weather and blue skies.  Whether the sun emerges or not however, a three-day weekend gives us all the chance to really relax and unwind with our partners, families and friends.  So here’s what Bespoke Hotels recommend…

Hotels For Couples

Three days to ourselves is a perfect opportunity to have spend some quality time with our partners, because at other times it can be all too easy to rush around simply doing the things that we have to. If you haven’t already been, Castlemartyr Resort in Ireland is a wonderful location for making anyone feel loved thanks to the beautiful location and its rather spectacular spa.

With Bespoke Hotels, you have a choice between self-catering mews houses and contemporary lodges, or five-star hotel facilities with all the trimmings.  The grounds really are quite awe-inspiring, the kind of place that makes you feel wonderfully oppunlent, while the ESPA Spa is strikingly contemporary in design, and has been created and managed by the world-leading spa product brand itself, which bodes extremely well for the experience.

Alternatively, Cornwall’s Lugger Hotel offers the best of boutique British experiences by the sea, with spectacular seafood proving a key highlight for foodies.  While for those heading to Scotland, The Newton Hotel is an imposing Highland destination once regularly frequented by Charlie Chaplin – and between the grounds and the architecture you couldn’t imagine anywhere more romantic.

Hotels For Families

Bank holidays are made for family breaks it seems, as there’s just never enough time to do everything on a normal Saturday and Sunday.  So these long breaks are precious to all of us who want to spend time with parents, children, uncles, aunts and anyone else we can welcome along.

The question, therefore, is finding somewhere that caters to everyone’s needs so that all involved can relax and unwind. If you fancy a trip overseas, Amsterdam is easy to get to and Bespoke Hotels offers you the four-star Memphis Hotel in the prettiest part of the city is within walking distance of the museums, the Vondelpark and the main shopping district.

The hotel has triple rooms ideal for young families, and the city is known for its cycling culture which adds another joyful dimension to the experience.  What we love about the city and hotel is that it’s a highly cultured experience, yet at the same time one that the whole family can enjoy.

A little closer to home there are of course some beautiful places in the UK that welcome families, with The Cotswolds in particular providing a scenic haven.  Stonehouse Court is 17th century manor house hotel surrounded by six acres of grounds for the kids to explore.  While mum and dad can sit in the garden with a glass of Pimms, while the children enjoy the great outdoors in blissful British summer style.  Alternatively, the Noel Arms Hotels is nearby and also welcomes families with a traditional twist.

Hotels for Groups

Travelling with friends isn’t always top of the agenda over the bank holiday, but with wedding season on the horizon hen parties are in full swing and a trip replete with L-plates isn’t for everyone. For some it may be a simple chance to enjoy quality time, and that goes for those of us who have no particular reason for holidaying with friends other than the simple fact of enjoying one another’s company.

Restored Georgian Mansion Lamphey Court in Pembrokeshire is a beautiful experience to share with a group this bank holiday. The welsh coastline nearby was named the second best in the world by National Geographic, while the hotel itself is straight out of a storybook. There’s also a golf course for those who play or want to give it a go, a spa, and of course the area is fantastic for exploring on foot.

Alternatively, Bespoke Hotels the Lifehouse Spa and Hotel in Essex is ideal for groups of girls wanting a health break, thanks to the staff’s vast knowledge surrounding wellbeing, beautiful gardens to mill about in, excellent food, and contemporary design.  The spa experience is integral to your stay and packages are tailored by the resident naturopath, so if you have a particular wellbeing concern you want to address, this is the place to do it.  In short, it’s just a lovely place to unwind and feel extremely good about yourself with one, two or more of the people you most like to spend time with!

Whatever you decide, we wish you a wonderful bank holiday!

Top Five Coastal Hotels in the UK to Visit in the Spring

Once you’ve fallen in love with the UK coastline it’s nigh on impossible to resist the draw of salt in the air, sand between your toes and the occasional spot of sunshine as well.  Long walks along the cliff tops, hearty meals with dramatic views, and a sense of adventure are staples of a British seaside break, as long as you know which coastal hotels to visit.  So here’s what we suggest…

The Lugger Hotel, Cornwall

Bespoke Hotels - The Lugger
Bespoke Hotels – The Lugger

In the little village of Portloe, known for its unrivalled, timeless beauty, The Lugger Hotel is the proud recipient of numerous accolades relating to its high standards of service and style.  Right on the water’s edge, coastal hotels are ideally located for pottering around by the sea, but the Lugger is also within easy reach of attractions like the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.  Details including carefully attended fine linens and deluxe showers , while completing the experience is the restaurant, which proudly sports two AA Rosettes and serves locally-sourced food, and truly a joy to luxuriate over.

My Hotel Brighton, Brighton

A luxury hotel that looks more like the apartment you wish you had, My Hotel Brighton is a four star destination that hinges on sexy design and the spirituality of Feng Shui.  Yes, this is how to do Brighton if you’re not a student – ultra cool, super stylish, but with plenty of soul.  Local artisans have created opulent studios, and artwork is peppered throughout the hotel.  They also know how to stop you from feeling like just another face in the crowd, storing your personal preferences on record so that when you go back (and you will want to go back), your room will be ready and waiting just the way you like it!

The Dunollie Hotel, Isle of Skye

Bespoke Hotels - The Dunollie Hotel

In a serene waterside location on Broadford Bay, The Dunollie Hotel is all about escaping to homely comforts (and hopefully a lack of mobile phone signal as well).  At the foot of the mountains leading to the famed Cuillin Hills, the area is filled with history, not least the legend that Bonnie Prince Charlie gave the recipe for Drambuie to Clan MacKinnon at this very spot, to thank them for helping him to escape from France.  So why not drink a toast in the restaurant in the evening?  It would be rude not to!

BridgeHouse, Dorset

In a word, BridgeHouse in Dorset is simply magical.  With 700 years of history, it is quite literally a house on a bridge that once upon a time housed a dozen priests.  Today, everything from the walled garden to The Beaminster Brasserie is brimming with charm.  Food, including freshly caught fish is local and organic, and the whole atmosphere is one of unpretentious relaxation.  As good fortune would have it is also close to the Jurassic Coast, which, if you haven’t been, is a real treat for the senses and perfect for anyone who wants to get outside for a bracing spring walk.

Carnoustie Golf Hotel, Scotland

Bespoke Hotels - Carnoustie Hotel & Spa
Carnoustie Hotel & Spa

It’s up to you which view you prefer at the Carnoustie Hotel, from the local town to the golf course and the windswept, it’s all spectacular.  The golf course has hosted some of history’s greatest players in its time, and while the hotel has a wealth of health and spa facilities which really ought to be enjoyed while you’re here, we are partial to a stroll down to the water’s edge where the Angus coastline boasts some of the most magical beaches in Scotland.  If you fancy a day out, a trip to the late Queen Mum’s imposing childhood home Glamis Castle is a must, and we suggest you finish the day with Scottish fare in the hotel’s award-winning Dalhousie Restaurant.

Afternoon-Tea-in-Bermondsey-Square-HotelIf you’ve stayed overnight in one of those large and impersonal hotels where you struggle to locate truly individual service and quickly you become more of a number than a guest, it’s time to seek out one of the Bespoke Hotels across the UK (and the rest of the world!) to find a property that bases its whole existence on providing you with a better and more enjoyable stay.

Guaranteeing Luxury Facilities

Although the majority of Bespoke Hotels are much smaller than the monolithic, imposing brand names, you’ll know you’re going to receive a wonderful welcome, luxurious facilities and great personal service during your stay. All of Bespoke Hotels’ boutique properties are unique in this regard and will provide a stylish and intimate setting for you as well as a great restaurant for every meal of the day.

Why Bespoke Hotels are successful

Bespoke Hotels survive on their reputation which means they must provide excellent service so that their customers keep coming back. Customers only return because they are provided with a level of personal service that goes beyond the norm provided at bog standard hotels.

Because Bespoke Hotels are relatively small, it is easy for the employees and the customers to get to know each other and understand how everything clicks into place. Because customers of these hotels are bonding with employees, there’s a better morale amongst all concerned. A better morale always provides a higher level of personal service and a genuine interest in the customer’s stay at the hotel. In other word, you will feel the benefits!

Quiet or Busy?

Depending upon your requirements, Bespoke Hotels can vary from those fitted with the latest technology and gadgets to enable you to operate uninterrupted throughout your stay, to those of a quieter and more sedate disposition, that seek to provide a relaxing atmosphere and a stress-free stay because the employees are able to devote their time to the customer’s individual needs.

Many Bespoke Hotels create a niche which is valued by many travellers and this is what sets them apart from the competition. When a hotel knows and understands your particular quirks and requirements, then in turn makes sure they are attended to time after time, you’ll come away all the more satisfied.
