Spend Christmas 2013 at the Whitehall Hotel
Our special Christmas package is based on a four night stay starting on 23rd December. Extra nights can be added to extend your stay.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome when you arrive at the hotel. Enjoy tea and mince pies while you settle in and relax. In the evening we offer an excellent three course dinner followed by coffee. There are choices for each course including vegetarian and fish options. After dinner relax and enjoy festive music with our singer in the lounge.
Christmas Eve – 24th December
Enjoy a traditional English breakfast and then take a bracing walk along the seafront or a last minute dash to the shops. Bar snacks will be available to order at lunchtime. Afternoon tea and cakes will be served in the lounges. To get you in the Christmas spirit we invite you to meet up with all the other guests for a pre-dinner drinks reception. After dinner there will be carols around the Christmas tree with the Salvation Army brass band.
If you are feeling peckish have a mince pie before you retire to bed to hang up your Christmas stocking!
Christmas Day – 25th December
Start the day with our special Bucks Fizz Christmas Breakfast. We are expecting a visit from Father Christmas with a gift for everyone. Ho! Ho! Ho! Guess the weight of our fantastic home-made Christmas cake. We will also give you daily quizzes and puzzles to keep you alert! There are a number of Christmas Day Church services just a few minutes from the hotel or you could walk along the seafront to watch the annual ‘Spartan Swim’. At lunchtime we will serve a light lunch in the bar. In the afternoon relax and watch the Queen’s Speech with a cup of tea and a piece of our Christmas cake.
The highlight of the day is our special celebration Christmas dinner (which comprises four courses including traditional roast Dorset turkey with all the trimmings). Enjoy the spectacle of our chefs parading the flaming Christmas pudding! After dinner there will be a festive quiz hosted by hotel owners Bernard and Sara.
Boxing Day – 26th December
Enjoy another hearty breakfast then ‘blow away the cobwebs’ with a refreshing walk. You could pre-book tickets to see the pantomime at the Pavilion Theatre. If you go to the afternoon performance you won’t miss the party at the hotel in the evening. We will be offering a light lunch and then afternoon tea and cakes will be served in the lounges. In the evening we will have our special Boxing Day party starting with a drinks reception followed by our Head Chef’s magnificent celebration buffet. This will be a fun evening with our restaurant and our staff transformed for the occasion! We will inform you of the theme in advance as some guests may like to join in with fancy dress – although this is optional! After dinner the party will continue with music.
Make the most of your full English breakfast before you have to finish your packing. We will wish you a fond farewell and we hope you will have had a wonderful Christmas.
