Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa, Chesterton, Bicester, OX26 1TH
Don’t be gray this Valentine’s Day and surprise your significant other to bed and breakfast and a spectacular five-course evening meal at the unforgettable and enchanting Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort. From the moment your partner sets their eyes on this stunning four-star resort nestled among acres of spectacular Oxfordshire countryside they’ll be swept off their feet. Boasting 52 luxurious guestrooms, an 18-hole golf course, elegant private event spaces, and a spa complete with indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, and six treatment rooms, Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa is the place to be no matter the month, but this February it’s really pulling out all the stops to romance you.
From just £120pp, their Valentine’s Day package includes dinner, bed and breakfast in a classic bedroom and a delicious five-course meal with fizz on arrival at the recently refurbished Grays Restaurant. To ensure you feel loved during your entire stay at the hotel, you’ll also be treated to two mini bottles of Prosecco waiting for you in your room and you will also have full access to the hotel’s beautiful spa facilities where you can relax, unwind, and let all the woes of winter completely wash away.
If your wallet is feeling the strain after an expensive Christmas and you’re struggling to splurge at the start of the year, you’ll be delighted to discover that Valentine’s dinner is available on its own for just £45, giving you the perfect opportunity to check out this exceptional restaurant for yourself.
A contemporary and inviting dining space that’s far from gray, executive head chef Alan Paton and his team use only the finest local, seasonal produce to create an exciting and innovative selection of dishes guaranteed to get you salivating. With his ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary by enhancing the natural flavour of each ingredient to offer diners a truly unforgettable and unique dining experience, you’ll be whipped into a frenzy with dishes on the seasonally changing menu like the indulgent grilled doughnut with whipped Oxford Blue cheese, blueberry and pecans, or the rib-eye steak served with whipped bone marrow, creamed spinach, mushrooms baked in red wine and thyme and chips cooked in dripping. Everything on the menu is made in-house, including the brilliant black pudding and house bread flavoured with blue cheese and white chocolate.
This season of love doesn’t begin and end on the 14th however – the entire month of February (and the beginning of March) is just filled with love at the four-star Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa resort. On the 28th February, the hotel is hosting a quiz all about love, testing your knowledge on all matters of the heart. From 7pm until 9pm, pre-booking is essential, so head over to Eventbrite and book your team of up to six to make sure you don’t miss out – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-big-quiz-of-love-tickets-91163774303.
Then, leaping over to March 8th, you’ll get the opportunity to have a look around the hotel’s beautiful rooms all elegantly set up for a wedding breakfast and ceremony at the hotel’s wedding fair. Giving you a great chance to visualise your day and chat to their trusted and talented recommended suppliers, if you’ve recently gotten engaged – perhaps on February 29th when it’s traditional for women to propose to men – you won’t want to miss out on this.
No appointments are necessary. Register your attendance here – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bicester-hotels-wedding-fair-tickets-87544236167?ref=estw
