The Ashbourne Hotel has one of the most desirable postcodes in North Lincolnshire for business travellers; situated just outside Grimsby, a two minute drive from the Humber Bank and five minutes from the M180, the hotel offers easy access to all major routes, as well as Humberside International Airport. The Brackenborough Hotel, on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and by the market town of Louth is also a popular business spot during the week, with various rooms of differing sizes available for conferencing.
However, despite the excellent level of facilities provided in-house, there are always going to be times when visiting the hotel just isn’t convenient, as modern-day pressures erode into businesses’ ever-precious time.
“And this is where we would then recommend our outside catering service” says Ashley Lidgard, Director of Oak Ridge Hotels. “We understand that all businesses have differing needs, and sometimes it is simply easier for us to go to the client instead. As a company, Oak Ridge Hotels have years of experience in handling outside catering events ranging from board meetings, children’s parties, product launches, corporate afternoon teas for 200 and many other events in between, so we are more than happy to put together a bespoke package to suit a company’s requirements – however large or small.”
However, for those who still want to have a change of scenery during their lunch hour, the hotels have recently rolled out an “Express Service”. It has been met with an enthusiastic response by local business clientele. A simple idea in essence, but a very practical one, which has identified and addressed a vital need of anyone who needs to watch the clock. By simply emailing or faxing through a lunch order on the day of dining, with details of meal choices, numbers and timings, this ensures that your meal will be waiting on your table when you arrive.
Ashley said “We are all about keeping things simple, and this concept has proven popular with companies local to both of our hotels. We’ve all been out for lunch on a one-hour break, only to anxiously watch the clock all the way through, wondering when the food will arrive. Even if it comes fairly swiftly, this isn’t guaranteed, and defeats the object of that one-hour period of peace, leisure and relaxation that you were hoping to achieve by leaving the office in the first place!”
With newly launched menus at both hotels featuring a great selection of light bites, or more substantial meals, tailored to suit all tastes and budgets, there’s bound to be something for everyone. Both hotels have ample free parking, free wifi and crucially, with your selected meal awaiting your arrival, this guarantees you a whole hour of stress-free downtime.
