Merry Christmas

All the team at the White Hart Hotel would like to wish our customers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

It’s been an exciting year for us here at the White Hart, and we’re proud to have served you all throughout.

This year saw us refurbish and reopen the Grille restaurant, which looks fantastic with our new décor and has been praised for our sumptuous menu bursting with local ingredients and products. So much so in fact, that we were delighted to win Restaurant of the Year at the Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards.

It’s not the only prestigious accolade we received either after scooping the Best Venue category as well. At the time, our general manager Ian Robinson said, ‘Winning Restaurant of the Year and Venue of the Year is a tremendous honour. We’re very proud that we’ve won awards two years in a row after winning Hotel of the Year in 2016 and we’d like to thank all the staff and team who have helped us achieve our goal of becoming Lincoln’s leading venue. We work hard to ensure all our customers experience unparalleled service and enjoy excellent food, so it’s great to get recognition for that with these prestigious awards.’

We’ve been lucky enough to host a variety of weddings through 2017 as well. It’s always a huge pleasure for us to see so many bright futures begin at our historic hotel.

It’s not over yet though, we have even more planned for next year as we continue to strive for excellence with our menus, both for food and cocktails, service, and more.

So, we’ll look forward to seeing you in 2018 but before that, have a fantastic Christmas full of fun and happiness, followed by a wonderful New Year.

From all the team at the White Hart Hotel.

Six Reasons To Book Your Hotel Room Direct

Here at the Whitehart Hotel, we care deeply about our guests and are always ready with the best offers and extras to ensure your stay is a luxurious, care-free experience.

That’s why we wanted to talk about direct bookings. We understand that whatever the reasons for your stay, you’re always going to want to secure the best deal and that’s why third-party sites can be appealing but there are many reasons why you should always book direct.

To help you understand the benefits of booking direct, we have compiled a list of the top-six reasons why booking a hotel room directly with a hotel is always the best option.

Accountability

By booking direct you should guarantee an easy and secure booking because there are only two parties involved. When a third party (such as a booking site) gets involved, things can get messy and this is most commonly in the form of reservations not being processed. This will need to be rectified by the hotel on your arrival and can leave you with the wrong room or without any room at all.

More Rooms Available 

A little tip when it comes to booking through a third party is that ‘sold out’ does not always mean a hotel is full. Often hotels will keep their best rooms free for their guests who book direct. Hotels also sometimes stop selling rooms to third-party sites on particular dates. So, don’t always believe a third-party and check the Whitehart Hotel’s website or call us on 01522 526 222 to book.

More Flexibility

When booking direct, hotels are often more willing to help should you need to change dates or cancel. This is because the hotel is not bound by third-party agreements, while reserving a room through a third-party usually creates and locks in a contract for the stay which can restrict your and the hotel staff should you need to amend anything.

Best Rate Guaranteed

We often hear the biggest draw for booking through third-party sites is the price, as they’re usually represented as the cheapest available rates. Alas, this isn’t the case. Hotels will always price match any offer you’ve received elsewhere. Not only that, booking direct will also ensure we can offer you the best deal, with the best add-ons and extras at the lowest possible prices.

Best Packages Through Direct Booking

That brings us neatly onto our next point, which is that the best packages are only available when you book direct. If you’re looking for dinner, bed & breakfast or some other extras to make your stay at the Whitehart Hotel extra special, then booking direct is the only option. Not only we will know your exact requirements but we’ll also be able to provide the best possible price.

Fridays and Sundays

As well as the individual offers and rates we can provide when you book direct, we also run exclusive Friday and Sunday deals that are only available when you book a room directly through us. On a Friday, with the correct voucher code, you can book a bed-and-breakfast room for two with a £25 dinner allowance and two pre-dinner cocktails all for just £165. Then, on Sundays, you can book a bed-and-breakfast room for two with a £20 dinner allowance for just £120. Call us now on 01522 526 222 to book now.

Why book direct?

Book your stay at The White Hart Hotel using our online booking system to benefit from the best rates – guaranteed, and a host of special offers and exclusive website-only packages that you won’t find elsewhere!

Booking direct through our website, instead of using other hotel booking sites, allows you to bypass booking fees and guarantees full access to all of our rooms. For example, our luxurious Four Poster suites – perfect for romantic getaways and anniversaries – are only available via direct booking.

Our secure online reservations system displays up-to-date information on all of our seasonal discounts as well as a selection of current pictures. Plus, you can talk to the hotel directly rather than using an intermediary, which means you’ll get a personalised service and an immediate answer to any of your queries.

Another advantage to booking directly is that you won’t have to pay a penny until you arrive at the hotel (unless specified clearly in the booking process). Better yet, when you book direct you’ll also benefit from full flexibility – you can modify your booking up until 24 hours before your stay for no additional cost.

On top of that we’ve created an array of web-only packages with fantastic extras, such as 10% off dining, free late check outs or a complimentary Classic Afternoon Tea*.
