Recently here at the Green House Hotel, we’ve been thinking about that dubious Chinese proverb recently: “May you live in interesting times”.
Well, 2016 has certainly been interesting, whatever your views on Brexit, Trump and the rest. So let’s see it out in style. Our New Year’s Eve package is the perfect antidote to all the year’s madness, the ideal chance to enjoy some much needed down time with friends and family in comfort and luxury. So here are five “interesting” reasons to celebrate New Year at the Green House Hotel.
“Eco-cred with creative finesse in beachy Bournemouth” is how the judges described us. This award has an extra special pedigree –Conde Nast Johansens was created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across hotels, spas and venues worldwide, and the Awards for Excellence are a trusted mark of quality for luxury travellers all over the world.
By the Daily Mail, no less. If you want to find out what makes us so green, read more here. It all started with a full £5 million eco-refurb back in 2011. And since then we have not sat back – we are constantly looking at ways to be greener in everything we do.
Arbor at the Green House Hotel is one of the newest 2 AA Rosette Restaurants in Bournemouth. Our menus change seasonally to ensure we use the best of what is local and sustainable. You’ll find well-cooked, honest, uncomplicated but imaginative food. Our team of chefs, led by Andy Hilton, are passionate about sourcing both classic and new ingredients straight from the farm gate and fresh off the trawlers.
The SRA looks at 14 key areas of sustainability including using local and seasonal produce to support British food business, reduce haulage costs and the environmental impact of transport; providing equal opportunities, training and clear policies to keep employees happy and productive; and monitoring, managing and reducing waste, including food waste.
Want to know how we did it? Well, our New Year’s Eve super menu is a good place to start. As in previous years Head Chef Andy Hilton has handpicked a selection of his favourite dishes from the year’s seasonal menus. You’ll find dishes lovingly prepared from scratch the Arbor way using top-quality, ethically sourced ingredients.
After dinner, you can kick back into the early hours over truffles and espresso, a liqueur coffee or perhaps a glass of our very special late bottled vintage port in the bar. Just make sure you make it down in time for our New Year, New Forest breakfast.
Our New Years Eve Packages start from £222 per night for two in a Small Double on a dinner, bed and breakfast package. Upgrade to our luxury double rooms from an additional £40 per night.
We advise you to book early – this could be your last chance to sample these extra-special dishes from Arbor’s back catalogue.
