Cocktails, cake, and a catch-up!

A weekend away with the girls is one of my favourite things, especially when you haven't seen each other for a while. On this occasion, we stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton Cadbury House, a four star boutique hotel and spa, near Bristol.
Check-in was smooth and efficient, and we were each welcomed with a warm chocolate chip cookie (I wish that all hotels did this!). The layout of the hotel was a little bit confusing at first, but we soon found our way around and settled in very quickly.

During our stay, we enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea, dinner at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, and a leisurely breakfast (checkout was at 12 midday, so there was no major rush). The hotel really has everything you need for a mini break, and we didn't want to leave!
Our lovely afternoon tea!

The food and service was excellent (we ordered the tuna steak, cheese burger, and salmon), and the restaurant and bar area has a modern and luxurious finish. We loved the 2-4-1 cocktails!

We enjoyed exploring the hotel grounds and lake, and appreciated the quirky touches...especially the life-size model of a cow, which you can climb on (if you want to!). The hotel has a gorgeous indoor pool, outdoor hot tub, sun deck, relaxation room, gym, salon, and fitness classes are also available on site.

The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, and we loved the free on-site parking. This hotel has everything you need for a weekend away with the girls, but it's also great for a special occasion, or a romantic retreat. We can't wait to go back!

  2. I love the chocolate cookies that the Double Tree hand out - I stay at the one in Manchester sometimes and I'm always cheeky and ask for two cookies :) . Afternoon tea, cocktails, leisure facilities and an amazing dinner sounds like my perfect weekend!! xx

  5. What a lovely break to have enjoyed with friends! The hotel looks wonderful and I love how you mention on-site free parking, which I suppose is one of the perks of more rural hotels with more space than those in cities :) Ah, I adore the giant 'Love' outdoor sign and wow, that afternoon tea looks delicious...
