 “We are obviously hugely excited to be re-opening in less than seven days and it looks like our guests can’t wait, too,” says Chris.

“Following on from Boris Johnson’s Monday 10th briefing, we had a huge spike in bookings and enquiries for stays, dining and events.

“They were both from a corporate and a leisure perspective.

“We have larger events booked in ranging from birthdays, corporate conferences to school proms. It’s going to be a busy summer.

“Our packages for Old Trafford museum tours and hotel stays are proving to be hugely popular for families during the summer holidays.

“Many may be choosing to stay in the UK this year and they are making exciting plans and experiences for all the family.

“Christmas enquiry bookings are also coming in thick and fast for parties. 

“We can’t wait to get going and we want our guests to be reassured we are going beyond when it comes to keeping them safe.”
