Warmly welcomed by the reception team, we could not wait to experience all this beautiful hotel had to offer. Excitingly the hotel now has a range of Manchester United Suites, the Manchester United Treble Suite was to be our home for the night, and the room defiantly had the wow factor.

Immediately on entering the room, the football theme is standout and has been completed to create a classy theming, on the right was a wardrobe made to be a mock of a players fitting room with signed team shirts encased within glass style display cabinets.

Take a seat on the bench and imagine that match day tension and those serious locker room team talks which hopefully result in a team win.

The Bedroom is separately divided from the lovely lounge, that has a writing desk area, with a flat screen television on both sides of the room and finished with a wall print of a very cool Manchester map. It is also nice to see the buildings original wooden feature beams sympathetically worked into the design of the room.

Football design details are everywhere including the football pitch rug, subito picture, team cushions on the sofa and a display cabinet all of things football memorabilia related.  The ideal place to sit back, relax and enjoy a night or two away from home.

Bathroom brilliance begins right here, slide the door to reveal a very cool team shower style hub that you can enjoy all to yourself, as you dream about your team scoring those wining goals.

Fully stocked with complimentary toiletries, offering an illuminated mirror and large mirror you can pamper in style.

Serious team talks require some refreshments and the Manchester Marriot Victoria and Albert have you covered with a well-stocked tea tray, including biscuits, so you can dunk them into your branded mugs., as you plan your time out in Manchester.

The onsite restaurant is the ideal place to fuel up and enjoy some liquid refreshments.  All the team are absolutely amazing and really do know how to look after their guests.

Pretty surroundings presented in a natural organic style with plenty of greenery and unique design details which creates a relaxed setting.

Starters included these gorgeous goats cheese fritters, a superfood summer salad, and the divine duck. The ideal sharing plates for you to enjoy a bit of everything.

Mains provided some serious fill including the classic fish & chips along with a yummy vegetarian burger with all the trimmings. All washed down with a range of brilliant beers and some fabulous fizz.

Desserts rounded off the evening well with a super scrummy sticky toffee pudding and a beautiful brownies & Berries anniversary platter.

After a relaxing evening and a perfectly well rested nights sleep in a super cosy bed, room service breakfast was the order of the day and it was well worth it. 

Offering a variety of items such as full English, these pretty porridge bowls, pastries, yoghurts, cheese, juices, tea and coffee, it makes a good start to the day for sure.   

Winning accommodations, fabulous food and super staff, make sure you go for the goal and choose The Manchester United Trebble Suite at the Manchester Marriot Victoria and Albert, as you will definitely be leaving victorious after what I am sure will be a winning stay.

Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa Gloucestershire #Review

Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa Gloucestershire #Gifted

Gorgeous Gloucestershire is the stunning countryside location of the attractive 17th Century Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa set in a 37-acre parkland Estate surrounded by stunning gardens and an orchard.

Immediately upon arrival you know that your stay at Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa is going to be exquisite just by the warm welcome alone!

Steeped in history and charm, the beautiful building of Hatherley Manor dates back to 1022 and at the general survey of 1086 Domesday it was found that Edmar a thane had held the estate of Hatherley during the reign of Edward the Confessor.

A portion of the Hatherley Estate was even once owned by Sir Matthew Wood who has been Lord Mayor of London twice! The three-time Mayor of Gloucester Anthony Gilbert Jones also had past possession.

The hotel has sympathetically designed the property to mix both the old and new without causing disjoint.  This is reflected within the accommodations offered, as for the ultimate in luxury the double deluxe bedrooms have both traditional and contemporary styled rooms, so the choice is all yours.

Our delightful Double Deluxe 240 Bedroom is a lovely large luxurious room offering with neutral relaxing décor with a large lcd television, underfloor heating, huge wardrobe, desk, with café du Monde tea and coffee facilities, mini fridge and the all-important complimentary Wi-Fi which I tired out and it was spot on.

The beautiful bathroom with a massive walk-in wet room style shower room, a sunken tub bath, his and her basins, bidet and complimentary spa toiletries for the duration of your stay.

The room boasts a balcony with floor to ceiling patio style slide doors, so pop on one of the in room snug robes, sit back relax, enjoy the tranquillity and views of the walled garden.  

The balcony is also the place to indulge your foodie side, as the room service menu really is well worth trying, as the starters, mains and desserts we tried were all amazing, as you can see from the photos.

Now it’s time to enjoy some much deserved you time, but before heading down to the spa, the double deluxe 240 bedrooms have an extra perk, as there is a sun-soaked balcony terrace where you can simply chill and enjoying the rolling countryside views that is Holiday vibes right there.

The stunning spa at Hatherley is the perfect place to unwind, the team are a really lovely bunch and have built a relaxing environment for guests to enjoy their spa experience.

The vitality pool is really high tech and has a water massage jet to each seat, neck massage cannons and volcano pads making sure you are well looked after.

The spa swimming pool is super spacious and there are also plenty of luxury loungers so you can chill out pool side in comfort. The complimentary branded flip flops are also a nice touch.

The pool also provides fabulous views onto the walled garden, a secluded area which has some outdoor seating such as the relaxing pods.  Also, there is a spa bar, so get that fizz at the ready.  

As if that was not enough there is a relaxation room, sauna, steam room, tepidarium, heated loungers and experience showers which we loved.   

Now after all that, you have probably built up an appetite and the team at Hatherley Manor have you covered, as with their onsite restaurant, you will be spoilt for choice.

The restaurant team are super lovely, and the menu was varied, so all good.  Super starters included arancini balls, chilli prawns and they had a range of boards, the cheese one was divine.

Marvellous mains included the chicken, a delicious Mediterranean warming tagine and a whole range of scrummy sides such as veggies and triple cooked chips.

Finish sweet and indulge with their chocolate torte and sticky toffee pudding perfectly presented.  In fact, just like the setting, a very characterful and historical setting with lots of nooks and crannies.

After a very peaceful and cosy nights sleep, we had the pleasure of breakfast brought up to our bedroom, enjoyed on our balcony this delightful offering provided hot options such as a full English, vegetarian, fresh fruit, pastries, yoghurt, tea, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice, a really nice way to start off the morning.

Looking for a perfect Gloucestershire Cotswolds spa stay, with exceptional accommodations, fabulous food all which can be enjoyed in a beautiful setting then Hatherley Manor Hotel & Spa is just what you have been looking for.

With beautiful coastline views, secluded beaches and mountain scenery it really is a super spectacular place to visit.

Snowdon Mountain

For the adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers travel a little further and you have the opportunity to climb Wales’s largest Mountain Mount Snowdon. 

Llanberis path is the longest but easier route, but there are plenty of other routes that have more of an edge, if that is what you are after.

As you can see there is so much to see and do in North Wales, so The St George’s Hotel Llandudno is the perfect place to Stay and Dine while you enjoy all that Wales has to offer.

Warmly welcomed by the team, as always, but things soon turned dark and ritualistic.

Escape Reality Manchester Ritual Escape Game Review 1a_edited

My friends and I decided to take a well-earned trip to a remote village in Europe.  During a pub pitstop we overheard some of the locals saying that they have seen strange happenings from the forest.

Late night flickering lights and strange chanting from the forest seems to be causing a stir.  Not scared of adventure, we decided to delve further…

…but was that the right thing for us to do, as we are locked deep within the cabin we located.  Looking through the windows petrified figures in black hoods, that belong to a strange demon revival cult, need our sacrifice to achieve their demonic goal.
