In May 2020, we pledged to donate 200 room nights to selfless members of the NHS who have made a difference to all of our lives. These heroes were nominated by you. We received hundreds of nominations and reading through them was incredibly inspiring, not to mention emotional. 200 were selected and we could not wait to spoil these extraordinary people with a much deserved night away, dinner and a bottle of house wine.

We really cannot thank the NHS enough and felt this was the least we could do to say a huge thank you for dedicating themselves to our care, putting our needs before their own and working tirelessly throughout the pandemic.

It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome these pretty special guests.

In their own words ...

"I was nominated for working outside my normal role as a theatre nurse and being placed as an ICU nurse at York hospital for 3 months caring for our sickest covid patients. I won the competition, and stayed overnight on the weekend of the 19/9/20. I just wanted to take the time to thank all who were involved in this amazing gesture. The food was incredible, our room was beautiful and staff were so helpful. It truly gave me a boost and made me feel so appreciated."

"Thank you for their thoughtful initiative, I was lucky to be one of their NHS giveaway winner (free night stay with a 3-course meal and bottle of wine included). We had a lovely time in such a welcoming and friendly environment. The food was amazing with great service and very satisfying. Will definitely be back and highly recommend to all."

Here's some of their faces ...
