Another hard week at work ahead? What you need now is something to look forward to so you can shake off those never-ending to do lists – a weekend away. But what is a bottomless Summer break?
One that almost never ends!
We have a really brilliant way of making our weekends seem ‘Bottomless’! when you book a weekend break, stay Sunday night as well and it will feel as if you have stretched time and had at least a week away! Go on, just try it and you will see what we mean.
The interiors of this boutique 101-bedroom hotel are inspired by York’s chocolate heritage and you will even find some naughty midnight snacking chocolates in the fridge in the bedrooms.
Here are some great ideas for a bottomless weekend break at Hotel Indigo York.
