The Christmas season is really starting to get underway. Shops are getting busier as people search out the ideal presents for their friends and family and as the big day approaches, the thought of getting away from it all is on many people’s minds. You could book into one of many luxury hotels that are open over the festive season and be looked after and pampered for a few days. It will be something you can really look forward to instead of waiting on others hand and foot. We’ve teamed up with hot tub experts, Aqua Warehouse, to take a look at three great UK hotels with hot tubs!

Why not try the Vale Hotel Golf and Spa Resort in Cardiff for a luxurious experience over the Christmas period? It’s set among 650 acres of wonderful parkland and is only a short distance from the M4 to make travelling easy. If you choose one of the deluxe rooms, then in addition to the usual facilities you will also get a balcony or terrace with views over the grounds, as well as bathrobes, toiletries and chocolates to enjoy. In the spa you’ll get a choice of treatments in addition to the use of the hot tub and steam room.


If Wales doesn’t appeal to you then why not head for the Bridge Hotel and Spa at Wetherby, North Yorkshire. It’s a former 17th century coaching inn offering refurbished bedrooms of a high standard and has its own restaurant on site. Guests can enjoy a relaxing time in the spa which features among other things a cedar hot tub, an aroma steam room and Japanese foot spa. For the brave there is also an outdoor hot tub set in the secluded courtyard gardens.
