Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Puts On A Day Fit For Royalty In Honour Of Kate And William
May 06, 2011
GATESHEAD, UK - Hilton Newcastle Gateshead is offering people the chance to watch the Royal Wedding on 29 April in style after announcing plans to screen Kate and William's big day live from its stunning location on the banks of the River Tyne.
Visitors and guests will receive royal treatment as they enter the hotel on a red carpet, before being welcomed in by the hotel's very own Beefeater, who will provide each guest with a 50% off voucher redeemable against any 'Royal Cocktail'. In honour of the future King and his bride, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead has created three limited edition Royal Cocktails: 'The Kate', 'The Wills' and a renegade cocktail, 'The Harry'. People will be free to enjoy these delicious drinks during the screening of the wedding at 11am in the lounge, and afterwards at the bar and on the sun terrace.
Those wanting to make a day of the wedding can stay and enjoy the 'Royal Buffet' being laid on at the chic Windows on the Tyne restaurant to reflect that which Kate and William will be enjoying at their wedding breakfast at Buckingham Palace. Two sittings have been arranged for 12-2pm and 6:30pm “ 9.00pm.
Martin Robinson, general manager, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, said, ”The Royal Wedding is the perfect opportunity for us to treat guests and visitors to a special day when they can sit back, relax and enjoy watching a historic event in the comfort of our lounge with our staff ready to look after them.
"Many of those not inclined towards organising a street party aren't sure what to do or where to go to mark the Royal Wedding. However, anyone who wants to join us is guaranteed to have an enjoyable time with special food and drink being laid on, as well as watching the wedding of the decade from the best seats in the house!
"We've had a lot of interest in the limited edition cocktails already as well as the Royal Buffet so if you'd like to take advantage of eating like royalty I'd recommend booking a table as soon as possible."
Based on the banks of the River Tyne and overlooking the Tyne Bridge, the stylish Hilton Newcastle Gateshead is one of the region's flagship hotels and has recently completed a £500k refurbishment. With 254 modern, en-suite bedrooms, all elegantly furnished and many of which with enviable views over the River Tyne, Hilton Newcastle Gateshead is ideally situated for all guests.
Those wanting to stay overnight on 29th April at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead will also be treated to 'Royal Wedding Favours' in their rooms.
