Pamper and Indulge

Tuesday, 23 July 2013

Thanks to Cosmopolitan and its great offers, my boyfriend and I spent the night at the Cheltenham Park Hotel as part of a mini spa break last weekend. As a natural 'worrywart', I'm always in need of some relaxation time, so this wonderful package including spa treatments, afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast was perfect! We had a pretty good room which unfortunately had no air conditioning but luckily it was spacious and cool with a giant fan.

Pamper time... After a 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage and a 30 minute facial we were feeling very sleepy. I'd never had a facial before and loved the face and head massage, my skin had also never felt so cleansed.

I brought along these cute little bottles of white wine for a cheeky drink in our hotel room before dinner.

Not forgetting our traditional pre-dinner appetiser of cheese puffs, how sophisticated.

All dressed up and ready for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by our well-presented, yummy and filling three course dinner. I went for the smoked and cooked salmon to start.

Followed by the chicken pie with puff pastry, mash, asparagus and parsnip.

And this indulgent sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Breakfast was the usual variety of cereal, fruit, pastries and a cooked breakfast. I love hotel breakfasts, especially the mini croissants. We went for a walk around the centre of Cheltenham which mainly consisted of pretty parks and lots of shops, before making our way back to the hotel for our afternoon tea.

We were excited for tea and cakes but waited almost an hour for our afternoon tea to arrive, hence the silly photo.

Finally the goodies arrived!

Our massive afternoon tea definitely made up for the wait, but it was just too big for our bellies so we took the remaining treats home.

Overall we had a lovely, relaxing and indulgent two days!
