The Felbridge Hotel

When planning a weekend away, East Grinstead might be somewhere around Croydon and Hull on your list of preferred locations. However, all that is changing with the opening of the Felbridge, a luxury spa hotel just ten minutes from Gatwick Airport. With individual treatment rooms, a heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, the spa is the perfect place to shuffle around in a massive fluffy robe before snoozing off and waking up all dehydrated. Luckily, you can replenish yourself at the on-site restaurant Anise, offering simple food from local ingredients. From there, it’s just a short waddle up to your room with it’s 24-channel flatscreen, massive Hypnos bed, high-pressure shower and high-speed internet access. With rooms from just £130, she should be convinced that East Grinstead is changing; and if not, you can always tell her that David Tennant and Ant & Dec have been spotted at the hotel. Celebrity always swings it.
