Christmas package – the ultimate festive retreat

Aztec Hotel and Spa’s ready-made Christmas packages provide the ultimate festive getaway – minus the stress of planning.

On Christmas Eve, arrive at leisure to the warmth of roaring log fires and twinkling Christmas trees, before enjoying a decadent three-course evening meal complete with a festive cocktail and canapés reception in the hotel’s award-winning Curious Kitchen restaurant.

As Christmas Day begins, start the special day with a traditional English breakfast and a mimosa champagne cocktail. The five-course Christmas lunch begins with a champagne and canapé reception, followed by a sumptuous menu and a visit from Father Christmas. Afterwards, settle down in the lounge for an informal evening with a full buffet supper.

As Boxing Day rolls around, start the day with a hearty breakfast before spending the day at leisure. For those wanting something more active, enjoy a walk around Bristol harbour or instead choose to relax in the hotel’s spa pool. On return, the Aztec Hotel and Spa’s fires will be roaring, with the bar and lounges providing the perfect place to relax and enjoy family time playing board games. Nestle down in the afternoon for an informal wine tasting and finish off the day with a three-course carvery dinner in the restaurant.
