With a very special royal wedding just around the corner, I felt it would be a perfect time to visit the location of this event in Windsor. Now, although I wasn’t there at the time of the wedding itself I had a relaxing and recharging break after a long term.
I visited Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa in the heart of Windsor located just by the river which means the view you get with dinner is indescribable.
I stayed here for two nights, from the moment I arrived I spotted their cocktail menu and just couldn’t resist. They had a wide range of classic cocktails ranging from martinis to mojitos and not too expensive either (from just £8) especially during their happy hour from 5 – 7 every night! After sitting in their bar for a few hours I moved onto trying their food and I was swept off my feet at what I was served.
We were first given a free appetiser, which they told me they do every night to try out new dishes and although I might have embarrassed myself in front of the waiter downing my shot of juice thinking it was alcoholic, I’m certain I am definitely not the only person to have done that.
The first night I had their chargrilled burger with smoked cheese and bacon which was delicious. Then on the second and sadly final night, I had the spring duck pancakes which was possibly the best meal I have ever eaten, which was just amplified by their homemade fresh hoisin sauce.
Now, of course, I didn’t just eat on this break, I visited the spa at the hotel and had the full body massage, as well as the Aurabsolu Glow Power Boost with Jasmine Absolute and after lounging around in the spa itself between treatments I had never felt better.
First, I had the full body massage which lasted 55 minutes and after suffering from a bad back for almost three months I was relieved to be able to move without aching all the time. The facial really woke up my skin which had lost its brightness after a long stressful term.
I can say with certainty that I will be going back here and hopefully sooner rather than later because I already feel the need for another break like this!
