6 Reasons to Book a Hotel Break for Christmas

It's nearly time for Christmas, but if you still need to plan for the big day, how about changing things up and booking a hotel break? Here are 6 great reasons to spend Christmas in a hotel this year…

You want a different Christmas experience

Christmas at home is lovely, but if you're growing tired of the same old traditions year in and year out, why not try something new? Book a Christmas hotel break to get out of your festive rut and enjoy a completely new experience!

While there'll be plenty of hotels nearby, why not take the opportunity to explore a new city or even a new country at Christmas? Enjoy winter walks, view all of the Christmas light displays, take in a theatre performance or pantomime, go ice skating and visit a Christmas market.

2. You've just moved house or are renovating

We all know just how stressful moving house is, but moving before Christmas, you can multiply that stress by a hundred! So if you're struggling to get into the festive spirit with a house full of cardboard boxes and have no chance of finding the decorations, let alone cooking a turkey dinner, why not treat your family to a hotel break for Christmas instead? The wonderful hotel team will take care of everything from beautifully decorating the hotel room to serving your dinner, so you can relax and recuperate before you return to unpacking in your new home after Christmas!

The same goes for renovating. If your house currently looks like a building site, it's probably not the best time to start decking it out in tinsel. Instead, make the experience more magical for you and your family by booking Christmas in a hotel. If you have children, they'll love doing something a little different this year, allowing you to enjoy an enchanting first Christmas in your new home next year!

3. You've lost a loved one

Grief often intensifies at Christmas, and people who have lost loved ones can find it particularly difficult to enjoy themselves, knowing that their special person isn't there. Some people might also find it unbearable to spend Christmas at home because it just doesn't feel the same. Of course, there is no rule to say you must celebrate Christmas - you do what's right for you. But, if you still want to spend Christmas with loved ones, just not in the same way as before, a hotel break for Christmas may help you to find the right balance and enjoy the festivities without putting too much pressure on yourself.

4. You don't like cooking Christmas dinner

Cooking Christmas dinner can be stressful for some, and no one wants to feel anything but joyful on Christmas Day. So rather than forcing yourself to spend Christmas in the kitchen, why not book a hotel stay with a Christmas dinner and have it all done for you? Most hotels offering festive breaks will have a set menu for Christmas, so make sure you book ahead of time and get that all-important order in for the big day!

5. You want to escape

It's the age-old debate most couples endure every year - who are we spending Christmas Day with? So here's a fun suggestion: why not spend just the two of you in a fancy hotel? A romantic Christmas break will make the perfect end to your year and give you a chance to spend some quality time together. Even better, book a Christmas hotel with a spa to relax and enjoy a treatment or two as your Christmas gifts to one another!

6. Your Christmas plans have changed, and you need a backup

When your Christmas plans change, it can be incredibly stressful and upsetting. You only need to think back to how difficult it was during COVID times to be told you couldn't travel just before Christmas! But these things happen, and if your plans are cancelled for one reason or another, booking a last-minute hotel for Christmas is a great way to ensure you still enjoy a magical holiday with your loved ones.
