Memorable breaks in New Year hotels
The festive season has always been a popular time for a break, with New Year hotels a regular favourite. There’s something special about soaking the atmosphere in more exotic locations.
Of course, the actual New Year party only really gets going at night time on December 31st. So you’ll want to decide how you want to spend your time in the run up to the countdown.
Some New Year hotels offering festive breaks are situated in beautiful rural landscapes. Others are centrally located, offering a base for exploring historic locations, or taking advantage of the shopping opportunities.
