Well January has got off to a flying start with lots of guest’s taking advantage of our fabulous Winter Warmer rates and popping in for a post festive break. We are also keeping busy with a little refurbishment room 101 is having a complete make over and should be ready soon, we are looking forward to the exciting new scheme. It’s certainly keeping our maintenance gang of Doddy, Gerry, and Stuart on their toes and out of mischief!
Not to be out done Oxley’s are having a make over too, with the addition of a fabulous new hair salon in the Spa. We are looking forward to the new feature- no more bad hair days at the Salutation! More details when its up and running.
Mike Durkin our Head Chef (aka wild man of Windermere) celebrated a special birthday this week, you know the ones that require a zero on the end! He started his birthday off with a birthday dip in the lake of course and then attended the Bond Dinner here at the hotel (no not the 007 kind!). The 187th Annual Dinner to celebrate the Ambleside Association for the Prosecution of Felons, a tradition that dates back to 1813.We managed to interrupt the proceedings to present Mike with a birthday cake just to keep him in the lime light after his TV appearance. We are sure he has lot’s more celebration to do – got to make the most of it!
