All Bespoke Hotels are more than just a little different, which in turn makes them extremely special. Once you’ve experienced the elegance and comfort of any one of our Country, Family, Business, Luxury or Boutique hotels, you’ll always wish to seek one out as you travel.

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.

4 Top Tips for Mothering Sunday from Bespoke Hotels

Mothering-Sunday-at-Bespoke-HotelsMothering Sunday, the Christian holiday is celebrated throughout Europe on the 4th Sunday in Lent. In recent times, it has become a significant occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents. Here at Bespoke Hotels we have a range of great ideas to mark the date, which this year falls on 30th March. Everything from special lunches, to that great British institution – Afternoon Tea. Or for those who truly wish to pamper their mum we can offer Spa packages and gift vouchers.

Mothering Sunday is increasingly being called Mother’s Day, although that holiday has other origins, and is celebrated in the same way as Mother’s Day is celebrated elsewhere.

The revival in the UK must be attributed to Constance Smith, a High Anglican who believed that “a day in praise of mothers” was fully expressed in the liturgy of the Church of England for the fourth Sunday of Lent. This is not entirely the case, but Smith, who never became a mother, reconnected simnel cakes, which may not be on every Bespoke Hotels Afternoon Tea menu, and other customs of the day that survived with the honouring of mothers. Under a pen name she published a booklet The Revival of Mothering Sunday in 1920. Things quickly snowballed, encouraged by feelings felt by many mothers of lost their sons in the First World War.

But what shall we give our mum?

Bespoke Hotels solution if the bad weather is getting you down

Bespoke-hotels-solution-to-bad-weatherSo you’ve just splashed our way through the wettest December and January for many years… What effect is this miserable weather having on our general health and wellbeing? And how exactly does one to stay upbeat in a downpour? Some Bespoke Hotels’ expert advice could be just the ticket.

If your umbrella has turned inside out at the very moment a packed bus drove through the puddle to your side, or if you think you’re coming down with a cold, you’re not alone. In fact, I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been there over the past few weeks.

All the same, it’s time to face facts. This is the UK. The weather is frequently rubbish and nothing if not unpredictable. We just have to learn to live with it – and be prepared to make the most of every day, come rain or shine.
There’s no escaping the fact that dull, wet weather can make you feel miserable. But only if you let it. The solution? Enjoy that great British institution – Afternoon Tea at a Bespoke Hotels near you.

Bespoke-Hotels-Winter-Getaway-OfferThere are now 80 Bespoke Hotels in the UK .  Many offer a great Afternoon Tea and all serve up a fantastic morning coffee.  Whether in the centre of towns, alone in the countryside, from the Highlands of Scotland to the land’s end in Cornwall, from glitzy London to the tranquil Cotswolds.  All are there to cheer you up, no time more so than on these relentlessly grey days

In the meantime, without further ado, allow us to present to you some Bespoke solutions to the misery!

Stand up!

Changing your posture and body language can help you laugh off the rain, too. Don’t slump over and crush what little spirit is left. Recline, stretch out, and feel your body revitalise, especially in the tranquil surroundings of a Bespoke spa hotel.

Wake up!

Convinced the weather’s making you feel tired and lethargic? On the contrary, it’s what’s happening indoors that’s really causing your energy to falter. The trick is to fight that urge, get up and get moving as soon as possible.

Instead of staying cooped up indoors, motivate yourself to go outside and ‘embrace‘ the rain. Going for a walk or a ride during a downpour can be exhilarating and release more endorphins to your brain. The result? You feel better and brighter.

Wrap up!

There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. Ensure you’re prepared for a downpour with a waterproof jacket and extra layers to hand just in case – and never leave home without an umbrella because, sartorial considerations aside, it’s important to stay as dry and comfortable as possible to fight off coughs and colds.

Back up!

As anyone who’s lived in the UK for more than five minutes already knows, it pays to have a back-up plan where the weather’s concerned. Why not consider a couple of days off and enjoy Bespoke Hotels’ Winter Getaway Breaks from just £25 per person per night.

Wise up!

Lastly, don’t always be tempted to blame the weather if you’re feeling low. If you’ve been worried by a other major aspect of your life, those concerns aren’t going to be any more or less real just because it’s raining.

But a bit of TLC never does any harm. So whether it’s a couple of days or just afternoon tea, a visit to Bespoke Hotels in this miserable weather will be sure to provide a cup of cheer!
