As I write this the New Forest is covered in snow and is like a picture post card. The guests who are staying at the moment are able to relax and keep warm by the glowing log fire in our cosy lounge. Luckily the snow is not meant to last long because although it looks picturesque it does create problems on the roads.
Christmas at the Cloud Hotel was very busy but also very enjoyable which is confirmed by the fact that every room except two were re-booked for next Christmas. Of course this can change in April when guests have to confirm and pay their deposit as we have such a big demand for our Christmas break so if you were hoping to come and stay with us this Christmas please call and put your name on the waiting list.
So here we are in a New Year with a fresh start and endless possibilities ahead of us. I am looking forward to another busy and successful year as I'm a great believer in staying positive in spite of all the doom and gloom around us. If you listened to the media you could lose the will to live!
Cheer yourself up and take advantage of our special mid-week and week-end winter breaks. Come and unwind and relax in the warm and friendly atmosphere of the Cloud Hotel. Take a step outside the front door, cross the road and you are in the New Forest National Park where the ponies, cows and donkeys wander freely and are often seen outside the hotel. If you like to cycle we have a secured covered bike shed where you can keep your bikes over night and there are a number of cycle hire shops in the area. You don't even need to bring the car as there is an Intercity rail link to Brockenhurst from London Waterloo and a fast train only takes one hour and thirty five minutes. Book on line with South West trains and you will get a much cheaper ticket. The Cloud Hotel is only 5 minutes away from the station by taxi and a 15 minute walk.
The next big event at the Cloud Hotel is Valentine's Day. Valentine's lunch for the Young at Heart is always a popular event so you do need to book early to avoid disappointment alternatively why not bring a little sparkle into your life and enjoy a romantic candlelit 4 course dinner in our intimate Encore Restaurant and stay the night to avoid driving home. To book please call 01590 622165 and my receptionist will be happy to help you with your booking.
I'm sure like me you are looking forward to Spring but the way the time seems to fly by these days it won't be long before we are enjoying the warmer weather and lighter evenings.
Take care and keep warm.
