Best Loved Hotels

Although it may seem slightly perverse to broach the subject of Christmas and New Year in the midst of an Indian Summer (this week will see the hottest October day in the UK for seven years), in fact our hotels spend months preparing for the festive season, and some of the most popular Christmas and New Year breaks begin to sell out in early autumn. Therefore, it's not too early to plan on a stress-free Festive Break at a Best Loved hotel before the Christmas rush begins in earnest. Below is a hand-picked selection of hotels ready to pamper you this December.
