Christmas With Eden

December is our favourite time at the hotels and we can’t wait to deck the halls and get the mulled wine simmering. The aroma of roaring fires mingling with the fresh smell of pine from the Christmas trees is really quite magical and we’re keen to get the celebrations started.

Everyone knows that Christmas is all about the food, and food has always been at the heart of our hotels. Our award-winning chefs across the collection spend most of the year dreaming up even more indulgent ways of spoiling our guests with their Christmas menus and this year looks to be no exception.

We invite you to join us for Christmas and New Year breaks, pampering spa treatments, not to mention the happy thought of our teams plying you with excellent Champagne, wine and fabulous festive food. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the festive season with you.
