From city weekends to sun-soaked escapes and snowy retreats, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to enjoy a well-deserved break with the one you love. Fortunately, Red Carnation Hotels has plenty of romantic options across our properties worldwide, so you can treat someone special to a perfect Valentine’s Day this year.


 With its mix of historic monuments, peaceful parks and world-class restaurants and bars, London has all the ingredients for a romantic getaway. With that in mind, each of our London hotels are happy to offer a romance themed package, encouraging guests to spend quality time with the one they love. Couples staying at The Milestone, Hotel 41, The Rubens at the Palace, The Egerton and The Chesterfield Mayfair will be treated to a bottle of Champagne, strawberries and a romantic turndown service. Meanwhile, at the Montague on the Gardens, spoil your special someone with a four-course candlelit Valentine’s dinner at the Blue Door Bistro. This includes a Champagne cocktail on arrival, sharing desserts and decadent Baileys hot chocolate.


Be inspired by the romantic novels of Thomas Hardy and escape to the Dorset countryside for some time together. Enjoy a Valentine’s Hideaway break at Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa, which is offering couples an overnight stay with Champagne on arrival and a delicious seven-course tasting menu. Make use of the hotel’s excellent spa and take a stroll in Melbury Park, a deer park located close to Summer Lodge that’s perfect for a romantic ramble. In addition to a Full English breakfast, couples departing on a Sunday will also be treated to a late check out.

There are few more romantic destinations than Ashford Castle. Located on the edge of Lough Corrib and surrounded by ancient woodland, this turreted castle is sure to be a hit with couples. Treat yourselves to the Valentine’s one-night package, which is comprised of a candlelit dinner for two in The George V Dining Room, and a dozen red roses and a bottle of Champagne on arrival. Couples can also enjoy a range of complimentary activities, from a walk with the hotel’s Irish Wolf Hounds to watching a movie in the cinema room.



 Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and positioned on the shores of Lake Geneva, Hotel d’Angleterre is the perfect setting for a romantic liaison. Take advantage of the Love on the Lake offer, which provides a spoiling break for just the two of you. Arrive in style courtesy of a Bentley transfer from the airport or train station before arriving in your room, where a bottle of Ruinart Champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries await. Enjoy a boat ride on the picturesque Lake Leman before returning to the hotel’s Leopard Lounge for a glass of Champagne and a selection of delicious canapés.
