To thank our loyal customers and online fans for a fantastic year filled with short breaks in 2012, we’ll be running our 12 Days of Christmas competition once again, starting on Saturday 1st December on our Facebook page. This year, as well as giving away some of this season’s hottest Christmas gifts in our daily giveaway, we also have two 4* luxury Spa Breaks to give away courtesy of Macdonald Hotels & Resorts.
Two lucky winners will be selected on the 12th day of our competition to win a two night spa break for two adults at either Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in Ascot, near Windsor, or Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa near Chester. These two stunning hotels from the Macdonald Hotels’ collection are an ideal destination for a winter spa break in the New Year, combining luxury facilities, sumptuous interiors and tranquil settings to help you relax and unwind after the end of the party season.
Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa
In the heart of thein the beautiful Thames Valley the French chateau style manor house of Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa offers guests a traditional setting for a luxury break combined with exceptional contemporary leisure facilities. As the nearest four-star hotel to Royal Ascot, the hotel is one of the finest destinations to enjoy a relaxing spa break in Berkshire.
As well as impressive accommodation with luxurious touches, the hotel’s restaurant is equally formidable, with the AA Rosette award-winning restaurant, the Hyperion Restaurant, offering a variety of dishes made using locally sourced ingredients.
For me, the standout feature of the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in Ascot is the outdoor hydrotherapy pool. I can just imagine myself sitting soaking in the warm steaming water sipping on a cool glass of champagne, breathing in the frosty January air and enjoying the views of the wintery Berkshire countryside. As well as the hydrotherapy pool, the hotel’s Vital Health & Wellbeing Club & Spa also features an indoor swimming pool, a thermal suite and technogym and six treatment rooms to enjoy a spot of pampering.
Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa
Also boasting luxury facilities and a tranquil setting is Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa near Chester. Set within thepicturesque village of Tarporley surrounded by the rolling hills of Cheshire’s countryside, this peaceful resort comprises of three extensive golf courses and leisure facilities including an 18 meter indoor pool and state of the art Technogym.
The setting of the indoor pool is simply beautiful, with ceiling-high windows that look out at the lush green countryside beyond the hotel’s grounds. After taking a dip, the Spa’s range of treatments in the thermal suite offer a variety of indulgent ways to unwind, with infra-red sauna, rock sauna, aroma steam room, ice room and experience showers to choose from.
After a day spent letting your stresses melt away in the hotel’s Spa, the AA Rosette award-winning Ranulf Restaurant is the ideal spot for tucking into a hearty meal.
