Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas! Wake up to breakfast from the extensive buffet and enjoy the morning at your leisure. It's so refreshing to take a brisk walk into the town centre or cruising down the Promenade on a heritage tram, but be sure to be back to enjoy a full afternoon tea and a choice of activities for big kids and little kids alike! The Salvation Army band will perform at our evening reception before a delicious 3-course dinner of your choosing. Afterwards, relax and enjoy the entertainment, but keep an ear out for the reindeer on the roof!

Christmas Day

The big day is finally here! Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and morning relaxing, before indulging in your choice of Christmas lunch with live music - the atmosphere is so warm and festive and we serve such a sumptuous meal. While away the afternoon or enjoy a giggle at our Christmas sing-a-long and prize bingo before a fabulous buffet in the evening. Feel free to catch up with loved ones in our lounge areas, or even go and have a little snooze!

Boxing Day

It's definitely time for a lie-in, so our brunch-style breakfast will be served until noon. We'd love for you to join in with our music quiz, but you can also make the most of our in-house cinema or a selection of board games before tea and cake in the afternoon.  

A fantastic evening with a  3-course gala dinner of your choosing will then take place - smart dress code for this one! You can then party the night away with a magician, live music and DJ until late.

After a hearty breakfast, we wish you a fond farewell and a safe journey home, but parting is such sweet sorrow - why not stay another day? After dinner, you'll be able to sit back, relax and enjoy live music in the lounge.
