You could be forgiven for thinking that Christmas at an airport hotel would be less than festive. But you would be wrong! If youre fleeing the country over the Christmas and New Year period, Hilton airport hotels have a host of seasonal treats to keep your spirits high before you fly.
Whats going on at Hilton airport hotels over Christmas?
There are Hilton hotels close to airports across the UK, offering a stylish, luxurious and convenient option to British holidaymakers hoping to stay near their terminal. Hilton hotels are renowned for being family-friendly; and they are full of Christmas cheer at this time of year.
At Hilton's big and shiny Heathrow T5 hotel, a giant gingerbread house has been handcrafted by the team and installed in the lobby to greet guests with a little Christmas magic. There are festive lunches and dinners at hotels throughout the season, including Christmas afternoon tea and childrens elf lunches at some venues. Father Christmas has even been known to drop in.
At Christmas Day and Boxing Day family lunches, kids eat for free and receive a gift. Christmas dinner at Hilton London Gatwick is served at the Garden Restaurant for £25.95 per adult and £12.95 per child aged 10-16.
There are also New Years Eve gala balls and dinners at selected venues. New Years Eve dinner at Amy's restaurant, Hilton London Gatwick, costs £85 per person and includes a glass of champagne followed by a six-course gourmet dinner. At Manchester airport's Hilton hotel, you can spend New Year's Eve enjoying a three-course dinner and live soul music for £55 per adult.

For fierce party animals, many Hilton hotels host Christmas party nights, tribute nights and even disco party lunches that your group may still be able to join. Hilton Manchester airport has a number of Christmas party nights for £27 per person including a three-course meal and disco.
If you dont fancy organised festive fun before your holiday, Hilton airport hotels offer a range of bars, restaurants, pools and spas to help you relax and get in a more chilled Christmas mood. In Stansted guests can use the Living Well fitness centre and kids' splash pool whilst at the Hilton Edinburgh airport you can be pampered at the beauty salon and work off those mince pies at the gym or pool.
