Well here we are at the end of another year and a New Year to look forward to. I'm a great believer in looking forward with hope and optimism because there is no point in looking back it is the past. Christmas at the Cloud Hotel was a great success and as usual my staff worked so hard to make sure all our guests enjoyed themselves and I think they did as many have booked for next Christmas and we only have 5 rooms available. If you want to spend a traditional Christmas in the New Forest don't leave it too late!!
The hotel is now closed for our annual re-furbishment and we re-open on Sunday January 11th 2015. The staff have 2 weeks much needed rest after such a busy year and it gives us the chance to decorate some of the bedrooms, clean the carpets and do general maintenance ready for the coming season.
I was reading recently in one of the many surveys we have in this country that it was decided that short breaks do you as much good as a week or fortnight's break. That is probably why the short mid-week breaks we offer by staying three or four nights and getting a night FREE are so popular. Even in the winter months a few days just relaxing by a roaring log fire and wrapping up warm to go for walks in the New Forest can benefit you, help you to unwind and blow away those winter blues. Our winter weekends available until the end of March are also very popular arriving on a Thursday or Friday, you can stay 2 nights and get the third night FREE
The next big event of 2015 is Valentine's day that falls on a Saturday giving you the opportunity to spend a romantic weekend away with that special person in your life and enjoy a candlelit dinner in our Encore Restaurant.
I hope I shall have the pleasure of welcoming you to the Cloud Hotel during 2015 and I wish you a New Year filled with good health, love, happiness and peace.
