Win a chocolate-inspired break in Bournemouth

Chocolate lovers should enter May’s competition to be in with a chance of winning a cocoa-themed romantic getaway in Bournemouth, on England’s sunny south coast.

The prize is a two-night stay for two in The Chocolate Boutique Hotel – which says it was the world’s first chocolate-themed hotel when it opened in 2007. From the Maya and the Montezuma to the Aztec and Mocha, the hotel’s cosy chocolate-themed rooms are decorated in warm hues of chocolate, cream and caramel, and feature flat-screen TVs, stylish ensuite bathrooms with complimentary toiletries and a daily helping of delicious chocolates.

The prize includes breakfast on both mornings – chocolate pancakes anyone? You’ll also receive a ‘romantic’ chocolate package worth £75, which includes:

  • a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and strawberries (you can select white, milk or dark chocolate);
  • a bottle of the award-winning Spanish Cava ‘Protocolo’;
  • two miniature bottles of chocolate wine;
  • two chocolate shot glasses;
  • and a chocolate heart.

So whether you want to stroll along miles of sandy beaches, while away the hours visiting vintage shops and quirky bars or visit local attractions, you’ll find the 19th-century grade II-listed The Chocolate Boutique Hotel perfectly placed for exploring many of Dorset’s hidden gems.

The hotel is around a two-and-a-half hour drive from London, and there is free parking on site.

Alternatively, the hotel is just under two hours on a direct train from London Waterloo to Bournemouth, and then a five-minute taxi journey or 10-minute bus ride (on the M1 towards Poole) to the hotel (disembark at the Poole Hill bus stop).

Visit The Chocolate Boutique Hotel or call 01202 556 857 for more information.
