What do mum's really want? A night out is generally my response! Team this with a lie in the next day and I'm one happy lady. For my birthday this slice of heaven was delivered with a night away at our very local 4* Brooklands Hotel. This way we minimised travel time and maximised the relaxation. Little Sophie went for a sleepover at the grands and we were treated to a night in the Noel Pope Suite. Like the rest of the hotel, it had beautiful and stylish design to reflect the motoring and aviation heritage of the site in a modern setting.
Although the room was beautiful, being such a lovely evening we sat on our roof terrace sipping a glass of bubbles looking out onto the Mercedes Benz World track opposite.
Another aspect of Brooklands hotel is the restaurant, I'd only been for a light lunch and afternoon tea previously and we were in for a real treat. My pal always faves about the 1907 restaurant and goes to celebrate special occasions and had hadn't held back on her praise, and the meal didn't disappoint. We totally split ourselves as all our favourites were on the menu, scallops, Chateaubriand and the most incredible peanut butter creme brûlée. We rolled back to our room very happy!
I don't know about you, but when I have a large meal I always seem to be hungrier in the morning than I usual am - stretching the stomach maybe! So we hit the brekkie buffet but storm, again going for multiple courses offers fruit, pastries and whilst Mr BMB opted for the full english, I tucked into smocked salmon and capers with oodles of coffee.
Our final treat was heading up to the BSpa where we were both treated to the Wine Makers Massage - using Caudalie products and techniques from winemaking. Feeling totally pampered and relaxed we allowed ourselves to chill out in the relaxation area before having a hot tub on the roof terrace. Bliss.
