Romantic Valentine’s Day hotel deals that won’t break the bank
As February 14 looms on the horizon, hotel chains have launched a series of romantic specials.
Valentine’s Day actually falls on a Monday this year, so whether you want to take the day off and enjoy a romantic trip or just book something fun to do with your Valentine – or even your Galentine or Palentine – there there are many interesting options.
Hotels have put together a range of different packages aimed at enticing people to enjoy a February break.
Here are some of our favorites – and with many of these hotel chains having locations across the UK, whether you’re looking for a city break or a romantic rural retreat, there should be something right up your street.
Although Hilton hotels do not offer a specific group-wide Valentine’s Day package, the Hilton Honors sale, which is currently underway and offers up to 25% off regular rates for bookings of stays before May 9, means there are amazing overnight stay deals if you wanted to book your own break.
Our choice : From big-city getaways in Liverpool, London and Manchester to city breaks and more low-key getaways in Bath, Nottingham and York, there are plenty of stunning hotels to form the highlight of your stay.
For something a little different, the Hilton Garden Inn in Snowdonia offers the perfect mix of outdoor activities, adrenaline sports and walks along a luxurious Wave Garden Spa and wellness center to relax and relieve the pains of the day.
You can even get rooms with idyllic lagoon views (pictured).
Unlike many hotel chains, Hyatt is not currently offering group-wide sales for discounted rooms in the run-up to Valentine’s Day. However, a little research on sites like Booking.com or SecretEscapes.com can land you a great deal if you have a specific town or city in which you want to celebrate.
Hyatt Regency hotels tend to be more boutique-like and ideal for couples, while Hyatt House hotels offer apartment-style suites perfect if you want more of a home away from home.
Our choice : The Hyatt Place London City East is one of the most luxurious hotels for the price you will find in the City of London. On the edge of the city’s business center and a stone’s throw from the restaurants, cafes and shops of Whitechapel, Shoreditch and Brick Lane, you can get a room at Hyatt Place from just £99.
If you want to make things extra special they are running a special Valentine’s Day promotion offering overnight stay, breakfast, a bottle of prosecco, rose petals and chocolates in the room from £129 per night.
Don’t forget to check out the breathtaking rooftop bar (pictured) which means you can sit on the 18th floor terrace watching the twinkling lights of Canary Wharf, the Gherkin building and the rest of London’s iconic skyline. They even provide blankets to snuggle up with.
Malmaison is renowned for its host of quirky yet luxurious boutique hotels, with on-site restaurants perfect for romantic dinners.
The hotel chain has unveiled a special offer ideal for a romantic weekend: the Valentine’s Day and Chill offer includes a room, a three-course Valentine’s Day dinner at the hotel restaurant for two people including a cocktail each and a full breakfast the next morning.
Prices start at £209 and are valid for stays between February 11 and 14, although London venues aren’t included, so if it’s the big smoke you want to head to, it’s not the best option.
The cheapest Malmaison to offer it is Reading, from £120 a night, but there are plenty of other places to try, including Brighton (from £135), Cheltenham (£140), Edinburgh (£129 ) or Liverpool (£125).
See the full list of participating hotels here.
Our choice : Why not explore Edinburgh? Malmaison’s offer is £196 on February 13, so you can wake up on Valentine’s Day itself at Malmaison Edinburgh and enjoy the history, wide range of attractions and stunning architecture .
Leisure Hotels in Warner
With 14 beautiful country hotels dotted across the country, from Cheshire to the Isle of Wight to North Wales, Warner Leisure Hotels are perfect for exploring a part of the UK you never knew have never been before.
Our choice : There is a wide range of different two or four night breaks available in different types of accommodation, with prices starting at £115 which include entertainment, meals and other activities and sports and leisure options.
The Nidd Hall Hotel, North Yorkshire, is offering two nights of dinner, bed and breakfast for £195 pp with live music and shows every night.
Hotels in Moxy
Moxy is a cooler, less formal branch of the Marriott hotel brand with 16 branches across the UK.
Hotels are as much about hanging out in welcoming common areas as they are about hiding in your room – you’re literally encouraged to check in at the bar rather than a formal reception.
Although the bedrooms are gems, they are stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including smart flat screen TVs that you can stream Netflix and YouTube on.
Our pick: The latest Moxy to open, Moxy Manchester City has announced a Cocktails, Cake & Love offer to celebrate Valentine’s Day, complete with cupcakes in partnership with local independent, Hey Little Cupcake.
The special package for two includes one night with breakfast, two sparkling Rossini cocktails on the evening of the stay, a Valentine’s Day-inspired Hey Little Cupcake each and a late check-out at 1 p.m.
It is available to book from Friday February 11 to Monday February 14, with fares from £99.
It might not sound like the fanciest or most romantic of hotel getaways, but depending on where you’re going and what else you’re doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Travelodge is often a convenient and comfortable option.
And what’s more, they just launched a payday sale that will run until February 2, offering 10% off a one-night stay and up to 30% off the cheapest night on a stay. of two nights – ideal if you want to make a weekend of it.
Our choice : London hotels are, in our opinion, where Travelodge comes into its own. Because when you’re in the middle of the capital with so much to do, see, eat and explore, sometimes you just want somewhere comfortable, close and convenient to come back to after a day and night of fun.
Travelodge Covent Garden is ideal if you are going to the West End. It is literally a minute’s walk from half a dozen theaters and is ideal for all that London has to offer. If you wanted to wake up in London on Valentine’s Day, a room here would cost you just £74.99 in the Travelodge sale.
Then why not splurge on some last-minute discounted theater tickets or a romantic boat trip with lunch on board on the River Thames?
