WHETHER your client wants to seduce an old flame or add some spark to a burgeoning romance, there are plenty of romantic hotel breaks on offer for the Valentine’s season.
Here is our round-up of three of the best breaks on offer to put the sizzle into Valentine’s weekends:
Get your clients to check in to Durley House in London for a sexy break. Double rooms cost from a commissionable £359 per night during February and the booking comes with a bottle of champagne, aromatherapy essential oils and scattered rose petals. If the weather’s good, clients can spend a lazy afternoon in the gardens opposite the hotel with a chocolate fondue picnic.
There can be few occasions when the words ‘ferry’ and ‘love god’ are used in the same sentence, but try this for starters: “My other half booked us on a ferry break to Amsterdam and the love god only went and bought me a whopping sparkler”. DFDS Seaways is offering a two-night Valentine’s mini cruise break to Amsterdam from £34.50 – an ideal chance to browse for diamonds.
The five-star Sheen Falls Lodge in Kerry, Ireland, is offering a commissionable Valentine’s package from £312 per person, for two nights. Running for bookings on February 17 to 18, the lodge offers a picnic to take on a romantic afternoon stroll. The picnic contains wine, lobster salad, exotic fruit cake and chocolates. Also included are a candle-lit dinner, full Irish breakfast and a bottle of champagne.
With rooms adorned with red velvet and red roses, any day could be Valentine’s day at Prestonfield Hotel in Edinburgh. On arrival, guests find shot glasses with dark chocolate mousse and bottles of champagne in their room. Its latest suite is currently having its walls adorned with crimson velvet in time for the special night. However, over the Valentine’s period the hotel is offering three nights for the price of two, with rooms starting from £195 and it pays commission too.
