Back in June it was time to head off for another girlie night away. Two of my friends had turned 40 in April and August, and June was a good time to go away and celebrate. After much research by my friend, we decided to head to Cottons Hotel which is in leafy Knutsford in Cheshire. We were impressed with the different packages Cottons have on offer, and we decided on The Girls Night Out Package for £117.00 each. This included the following
- pre-dinner cocktails served in the bar
- an overnight stay with breakfast in a luxurious guest room
- delicious 3 course dinner with an option to take desserts in your room
- half a bottle of wine per person
- selection of chick flick DVD’s and popcorn
- a goody bag for everyone on arrival
- a gift from ESPA worth £20.00
We arrived on the Saturday around 2pm and we were quickly checked in. As there were 5 of us, we had 2 rooms which were along the corridor from each other. After the unpacking of the alcohol and hanging up of dresses, we headed to the spa area complete with our fluffy robes. The spa area was lovely which had a large swimming pool, indoor AND outdoor Jacuzzi and plenty of beds for relaxing in. We headed to the outdoor Jacuzzi which was just bliss. The indoor Jacuzzi got busy as children were allowed in there.
After a few hours of relaxation and chatting away, we headed back to our rooms to get ready. After much straightening of hair and spraying of perfume we were good to go. We headed to the bar area where we were served our ‘pre-dinner cocktails’.
We were then called into the restaurant, and advised as part of our package we had £30.00 towards our meal. I ordered the ‘Taste of Cheshire’ plate for my starter which was fantastic, and steak and salad for the main course. The £30.00 more than covered my meal. We also had half a bottle of wine, and I was pleased I could choose Rose. The service was fantastic, and the overall atmosphere was relaxed. We had such a lovely evening enjoying good food, and a good old girlie gossip.
We headed back to our room and it was time for our girlie movie. We decided on Cocktail complete with a huge bowl of popcorn which was supplied as part of the package.
The next day we were back in the restaurant for our breakfast. The breakfast was lovely and fresh and you could have as much as you wanted. More relaxing in the room after breakfast, and then we went for another swim and Jacuzzi before we had to check out.
I thought the package we were on at £117.00 was great value. I didn’t spend anything else whilst we were, and it was lovely to get all dressed up without the hassle of getting a taxi at the end of the night. We also had goody bags on our beds when we got to the room. Anyone who knows me will know I LOVE a goody bag. These bags included a Jessica nail varnish ! We also got an ESPA gift voucher for £20.00 to spend online. I purchased a lovely gift set for myself with the voucher.
Any girls looking for an excuse for a night away I would highly recommend Cottons. They have a good selection of other packages available on their website. Thank you Cottons for great service and a fantastic time away with 4 of my friends.
