Harrogate’s best-known hotel is launching a new dining experience this weekend.
Commencing on Saturday, the date when the hospitality industry has been given the greenlight to reopen – the Double Tree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel and Spa will be launching its “Majestic Weekends”, making use of its extensive landscaped lawns for picnics and afternoon teas.
Over the last few weeks, management and staff at the 184-bedroom hotel, which has remained open throughout the pandemic for key workers, have been readying public areas ahead of the relaxation of Covid-19 lockdown regulations.
Being held on Saturday and Sundays from mid-morning to early evening, guests will be able to enjoy a number of different alfresco dining options and drinks packages. These include cream tea, afternoon tea or a picnic in the beautiful Frederick’s Piano Lounge & Terrace; three-course meal in the stunning Carters Champagne Bar & Grill, and “Host a Roast” on a Sunday, with family-sized Roast Dinner platters.
Double Tree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel and Spa General Manager Andy Barnsdale said: “We can’t wait for Saturday and to launch our Majestic Weekends. For us, this is an important step in welcoming guests back, and we have gone to great lengths to ensure we can do this in a safe and responsible manner.
“I’m delight ed to say that we are bringing back into play Frederick’s Piano Lounge & Terrace and Carters Champagne Bar and Grill, which have already been prepared ahead in advance, with tables being socially distanced.”
Andy added: “Just four months after officially celebrated the completion of a £15m refurbishment of the hotel Covid forced us to hit the pause button. We were also a week away from the grand opening of our £2m state-of-the-art spa and wellness centre, The Harrogate Spa.
“The launch of Majestic Weekends is the beginning of us springing back into life. The Majestic has been at the forefront of Harrogate’s hospitality scene for more than 120 years, and we can’t wait to re-start doing what we do best, providing a first-class experience for all who step through our doors.”
