    Beech Hill Hotel & Spa Review – Windermere

    My recent blogger trip was located in the lovely land of the Lake District. I’ve only ever driven through Windermere once before, so when I landed an opportunity to review the Beech Hill Hotel & Spa, I couldn’t wait to get there. The first thing Josh and I did on arrival was change into our swimming costumes and jump into the outdoor hot tub that I’ve been stalking on their website ever since I found out about the hotel. It really is the place to come to clear your head and since I had been poorly a few days prior, this was just what I needed to relax. Look how…

    Bank House Hotel & Spa Review – Worcester

    Being a hotel blogger definitely has its perks. Even if I don’t get invited to stay over, it usually means I’m encouraged to try out the spa area for the day to relax and pamper myself. I’ve been lucky enough to review a whole range of UK spas on my blog, from Fishmore Hall in Ludlow to Champneys Springs Spa, and I’ve been lucky to work with some pretty amazing places over the past couple of years. I honestly think having a spa day is one of the best ways to treat yourself, so each time I get invited, there’s always something to look forward to. With Bank House Hotel Spa that…

    The ibis Hotel Birmingham: ibis Lates On Tour

    The other week I was kindly contacted on behalf of ibis Hotels with an exciting opportunity to attend an exclusive gig at the ibis Hotel, Birmingham. In partnership between ibis Hotels and The Roundhouse which supports the Teenager Cancer Trust, ‘ibis Lates’ was formed as a series of gigs to be held in ibis hotel lobbies around the UK to raise money. On Thursday May 11th, I got to witness first hand some fantastic regional up-and-coming artists and DJ’s including the brilliant, Birmingham-based Ekkah. It really was a great night. A room for the night Straight after work, I raced to the hotel where they kindly lent me a room for the night. This…

  • Emma Victoria Stokes Blogger Review Ox Pasture Hall Scarborough Reception

    Ox Pasture Hall Hotel Review – Scarborough

    Ox Pasture Hall Hotel is gorgeous four star country hotel that I was invited to review late last year. For some reason it’s taken me a while to post about it but I couldn’t not show you, it’s absolutely stunning. During our trip I took some beautiful pictures which will tell you all you need to know about the place. Located near Scarborough, it took us around two and half hour hours to drive there from Birmingham and during our one night stay, we visited the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and ate some pretty great grub. The hotel really looked after us during our visit, I would highly recommend a…

    One Night At The AC Hotel – Birmingham & Luxury Stay Competition

    I can’t believe this AC Hotel Birmingham post is my 15th hotel review as a blogger, it still doesn’t feel real even after 4 years in the game. Even now, I squeal with excitement every time I get invited to luxury superior suites for review purposes. I mean, it really is a little bit crazy that I get to do this for a hobby. Excitement and enthusiasm aside for a moment, there’s now a running joke that I make my boyfriend stand in the corner (out of shot) while I’m taking photographs of the hotel rooms. It’s like that scene out of the Blair Witch Project where they’re made to face…
