Glorious! Thistle Hotels Introduces 'Lazy Sundays' with a Check-Out of 6pm
There’s nothing like a lazy weekend away but it’s something of a downer when you finish breakfast and realize that check out was half an hour ago. UK chain Thistle Hotels feel your pain, though – they’ve just launched a Lazy Sundays package which lets you stay through till 6pm Sunday. [Insert your favorite line from Lazy Sunday here. Chronic-what-cles of Narnia!]
You’ll also get breakfast in bed until midday (another annoyance – wanting a lie in, and realizing breakfast ends at 10am) and a newspaper so you have something other than the obvious to occupy your time. Even better, you can swap breakfast for a full on Sunday lunch if you feel like leaving the boudoir.
And if you get too comfy in the room, you can even sleep over on the Sunday night for a reduced price, starting at £23.50.
The package starts at £70 per person (that’s for the Thistle Heathrow, although to be honest, you might not want to hang around there) and is valid throughout and next year - until 31 December 2011.
And how does it compare with normal prices? Well, we had a look at the Thistle Manchester (which is somewhere we’d love to have more time – Sunday afternoons in Madchester are the bomb) and a room this Saturday night with the package will cost £138, whereas a room booked without the package costs £97.30 without breakfast. Add in breakfast and it’s 117.30 which makes £20 for a late checkout and having said brekkie in bed pretty damn fine.
Just book well ahead as you may have trouble finding availability – there’s nothing available with the package at the Manchester branch in November at all.
Now if they could only extend it to Lazy Everydays, that would be just fine with us. In the mean time, book here with code PPP87.
