The Cloud Hotel is to hold it's annual Charity Cream Tea on July 5th in conjunction with Hampshire Fare Food Festival from 4pm until 5-30pm, all proceeds are to be shared between Naomi House Children's Hospice and the Variety Club Children's Charity. Both these charities do wonderful work for children who do not have the quality of life that many of us enjoy and they are both very worthwhile causes. If you would like to join us and help raise lots of money call 01590 622165 to book. The cost is £7-00 per person and all proceeds are donated to these charities.
Yesterday was the longest day and I'm told summer is now here? It's still quite chilly in the mornings but we have had some lovely sunny days and our customers have been able to enjoy the peace and quiet of our secluded and colourful garden! The lupins, foxgloves and delphiniums are a blaze of colour at the moment. Fingers crossed the weather will continue to improve and we will have a warm summer.
After 18 years of loyal service to the Cloud Hotel our Head Chef Stephen Gates is to move on to pastures new. Steve's final accolade was the Cloud Hotel was awarded the maximum score of 5 for the food hygiene rating which was well deserved. We shall miss Steve but I am delighted to announce that John Egan is joining us as Head Chef John is a very experienced chef and had his own Restaurant in Lymington for 15 years. Egans Restaurant had a great reputation and he recently sold it but wants to continue to work in the industry so I' m delighted that he has decided to come to the Cloud. He is passionate about his cooking and using fresh local produce.
The New Forest & Hampshire County Show takes place in Brockenhurst on 28th, 29th & 30th July. This is the County's most spectacular show and well worth a visit. The main ring attraction this year is the incredible Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry. The troop will perform on all 3 days of the show. If you book on line at www.newforestshow.co.uk before 20th July you will receive a 15% discount for entry to the show. We still have a few rooms available during that time so book soon before it's too late. I can guarantee it is a wonderful day out.
It's onwards and upwards at the Cloud Hotel and I look forward to welcoming you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a child free environment. We welcome children over 14 years.
