After the hype and the excitement of the holiday period it is but natural to feel depleted of energy, listless and somewhat aimless in January. Most of us feel cheated that the festive period is over, the children have gone back to school and working life has become the order of the day once again. Making a concerted effort to keep the joy of December alive is imperative and some of us consider doing some fun and enjoyable things in January &February, for example visiting other cities in the UK. Planning a short weekend break can catapult us into the New Year with vigour and vitality. The most important thing to remember is that many hotels and bed &breakfasts will make substantial offers to make accommodation more accessible during these quieter months. This is by no mean a bad thing. In fact to the contrary this creates a win, win situation. Your money gets more for you, you get more attentive service and the business gets more energy from your custom and your presence.
It is a very quiet time of the year of many businesses. But there is an advantage. Like in everything else in life, something good always comes from every situation that presents itself in our lives. We at the Marlborough House Hotel in Oxford have been working endlessly to spruce up the bed &breakfast in readiness to receive our guests. The rooms have had a fresh lick of paint. There are beautiful succulent plants and Laura Ashley diffusers in all the bedrooms to create a holistic bed and breakfast in Oxford. We revel in the energy that our guests bring to our humble establishment and get to know all our discerning guests and their likes and dislikes.
The beautiful city of Oxford has much to offer and that is equally true during the winter months as it is in the summer. There are the prestigious colleges, Bodleian library, Ashmolean Museum, Pitt Rivers Museum, Botanical Gardens, Covered Market, Christchurch Meadow, MOMA Oxford, Christchurch Art Gallery and not to mention the endless shops and restaurants with their lucrative offers. All these attractions can be accessed and enjoyed during the winter months. The walks along the Thames are stunning and inviting. The sunrise and the sunset are mesmerising.
