How We Get Ready for Christmas

How We Get Ready for Christmas

Everyone loves Christmas, right? On the other hand, not everyone loves the preparation for the big day. If you decide that the annual whirlwind of decorating, cooking and hosting is too much for you, why not join us at Future Inns?

Christmas is the perfect time for a getaway to one of our Future Inn Hotels, where you can revel in the best of the season's joys without any of its stresses. Here, we will let you into a little secret on how Future Inns prepare the most perfect winter wonderland for our guests.

The Christmas Tree

Christmas doesn't officially start until the Christmas Tree is up. Getting the right tree at the right time is key for us at Future Inns when getting ready for the festive season.  Of course, a real fir tree is the only way for us to really get into the swing of things, and this makes things a little more complicated. The classic Christmas Tree will only stay fresh for three to four weeks, so the tree can't be put up too early, we've found that the beginning of December is perfect. 

On the Lead Up

Enjoy a more relaxed festive dinner party, our Christmas menus are ideal for the family to catch up, exchange gifts with friends or a celebration with the office team whilst indulging on the delights of the season. With delicious, exquisitely crafted dishes and tempting drinks, we’ve got everything you need for a memorable get-together.

All the Trimmings

We all know the stress of being tied up in the kitchen at Christmas time, but our Chefs have got it all under control. Turkey is the classic choice for Christmas dinner, so over the festive period, they will see a lot of it. Not to mention the roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, Brussel sprouts and litres of rich gravy. Christmas Day in the Future Inns kitchens is an exercise that is always expertly planned with perfect precision.

Festive Tipples

Indeed, it goes without saying that a well-stocked bar is needed over the festive season. Christmas is a great time to try out some new cocktails from our outstanding selection. All of our cocktails are £7 each. We also serve mulled wine and mince pies. For those who like something a little softer, we will have some lovely Christmassy hot drinks too. 

Christmas Shopping & Visiting Family

For everyone visiting our hotels, it’s still time to sit back, relax and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. At Future Inns, you can be sure of the ultimate festive experience. Whatever your plans are this Christmas our spacious bedrooms can help to keep the festivities going with our exclusive bed and breakfast rates.

Welcoming you Safely

We know flexibility is important, now more than ever, so we’ve made some changes to our rates to give our guests more choice. With super flexible hotel rates offering free cancellation and semi-flexible rates offering great value stays with plenty of options, we’ve got you covered. Head over to our dedicated page which explains our new rates here.

For additional benefits, you can join the Future Inns hotel loyalty program. For every £1 you spend on accommodation, in the bar and in the restaurant, you earn 1 reward point. Points can then be used to upgrade your bedroom to a suite or free night stays. You also get a complimentary drink voucher to redeem in the bar every time you visit and access to exclusive members-only promotions throughout the year.
