Here at the Green House Hotel, Bournemouth’s eco-friendly luxury boutique hotel, Graduation Day celebrations are a big deal for us. We totally get the huge mix of emotions that comes with this unique occasion.
It’s the culmination of at least half a decade of exams, the constant seasonal cycle of slog and stress and sleep deprivation. The excited-scared feeling that comes with moving on to a new life phase, even if you don’t know exactly where you’re headed yet. And the sheer pride and relief that can make for happy tears after a couple of glasses of fizz.
Naturally you will want it to be extra special. After all, you’ve put in the hard work and hopefully it’s paid off. So before you hit the bars, make sure you and your loved ones enjoy some special sit-down time and a delicious, relaxed meal to properly mark the moment.
Arts University 2016 Graduation Ceremonies will take place on Thursday 30th June and Friday 1st July at Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre. No need to panic if you haven’t organised anything for afterwards yet – the Green House Hotel has special rates available for Bournemouth graduation days that are perfect for visiting friends and relatives. Call reservations on 01202 498900 for more details.
As with any special occasion at Bournemouth’s Green House Hotel, Graduation Day celebrations are totally centred on you. It could be a summer lunch from our seasonal a la carte menu – perhaps alfresco on the lawn if the weather permits. Or a sumptuous dinner either in one of our private event rooms or in The Green House Hotel’s 2-AA rosette restaurant, Arbor (it’s Latin for tree, keep up grads!). Bring your own table decorations, Graduation Day cake, photographs, banners – or, if you prefer, let our events team decorate the room for you according to your chosen theme.
At the Green House Hotel, Bournemouth Arts University graduation menus feature a huge range of organic, ethically sourced food and wine, without stinting on luxury. So while you may want to splash the parental cash on a special bottle of Dom Perignon to get things off with a bang, you might also want to choose a gorgeous organic Prosecco (for a quarter of the price). Or, if you really want to save on the food miles and support local Dorset producers, why not choose a bottle of Furleigh Estate Classic Cuvee – local fizz made from local grapes. We find it tends to impress the visitors!
The Green House Hotel also offers 32 stunning rooms for your graduation guests. All our rooms are beautifully furnished with bespoke, hand crafted furniture that has been made in the UK using natural and sustainable materials. Rooms fall into four categories – small double, double, large double and master double.
But be warned – we book up quickly during graduation periods, so we advise you to make your reservations as soon as possible.
If you are organising a larger celebration for friends and family in Bournemouth, The Green House Hotel can build a package to suit your needs based on six or more rooms – this can include complimentary room hire for private dining.
