May Day Getaways

April 29, 2013

Mayday is traditionally a distress signal, derived from the French m’aider meaning ‘help me’. With that in mind, we’d like to take this opportunity to come to your rescue with some fantastic ideas for a family-friendly break or getaway for two over the May bank holidays.

All Menzies Hotels are situated in fantastic locations with easy access to a wide range of attractions. So whether you want to relax with someone special or spend some quality time with the kids, we can help you plan the perfect long weekend. Take a look at some of our most popular destinations, and remember to book now as our rooms are filling up fast!

Bournemouth Carlton: Set high on Bournemouth’s famous East Cliff with stunning sea views across the bay, the Carlton hotel (one of two Menzies hotels in Bournemouth) is the ideal location for relaxing getaways. Many bedrooms offer private balconies and our Health and Fitness complex means you can enjoy a swim in our indoor pool, work out in our fully equipped gym, unwind in our spa or enjoy being pampered from head to toe in our beauty rooms.

Chigwell Prince Regent: Conveniently located just five minutes from the M11 with direct access to central London, this hotel is perfect for a break to the capital city. It’s only 20 minutes away from the O2 Arena and is ideally situated for a trip to see a West End Show or enjoy a spot of sightseeing. Take in spectacular views from the London Eye, visit the Natural History Museum, or simply indulge in a spot of shopping – you certainly won’t be short of things to do!

Birmingham Stourport Manor: Just minutes from Kidderminster, this hotel stands in 23 acres of grounds overlooking the historic Georgian riverside town of Stourport. You can choose to while away the hours in the surrounding Worcestershire countryside, take a walk on the wild side at the West Midlands Safari Park, or indulge in a sweet visit to nearby Cadbury World. There’s something for everyone staying at this beautiful retreat.

Don’t forget, we also pride ourselves on being family-friendly.  Kids stay FREE as part of our Menzies Important Kids (M.I.K) programme, which includes complimentary ice cream and unlimited juice and water for the duration of their stay, as well as a new ‘Young Diners’ three-course menu.
