Baby-free windows are rare and hard to come by, that's why we have hunted around for the most relaxing and indulgent getaways for new mums. In this week's hot seat we review Brooklands Hotel in Surrey...
Fancy somewhere modern, relaxing and a great view of a race track? Uh yes, us too. Always. Then may we suggest Brooklands Hotel and Spa which expertly combines the premium spa experience with fine dining and race cars. The perfect spot for a Bond-themed anniversary getaway or if you're in the mood to celebrate.
The hotel is just down the road from Weybridge railway station and is next door to the world's first Mercedes Benz World, meaning you have a mighty view of the racetrack to take in, whilst you sip Prosecco from the outdoor jacuzzi. Bliss.
There are dreamy spa treatments on offer including facials and full body massages, which will give you some much-needed 'me time'! There is a 12-seat hot-tub facing the track perfect for those who want to relax with a view. The spa includes usual suspects including a sauna, steam room, water beds and an option for afternoon tea. You can also purchase a Car and Spa package if you want to have a go at driving yourself...
What's there to do?
Feel like a queen in the stylish, oh-so modern, monochrome rooms available at the Brooklands. Track-facing deluxe/executive rooms and suites come with ‘free’ entertainment, some with balcony. We are a fan of the walk-in rain showers and Egyptian cotton sheets which will make you never, ever want to go home. Sorry kids...
Inspired by the 1920s and 30s - a period of glamour, innovation, and the golden age of racing - the 1907 restaurant is a treat for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. The sophisticated decor means you feel inclined to dress up (any excuse!) and the menu will have your ordering all three courses, because who can say no to Chocolate & Blood Orange Tart. Highlights include Gorgonzola & Mushroom Ravioli and Charred Lamb Rack. Scratch the glamour, we suggest wearing something with an elasticated waistband...
