Leap day incentive at North Somerset hotel

DoubleTree by Hilton

Brides-to-be wanting to pop the question on February 29 can take advantage not only of this once-every-four-year opportunity but some additional incentives at the region’s premier hotel.

Tradition was that throughout a whole leap year, women could propose to the man of their dreams however because men felt that a whole year put them at too great a risk, the tradition was tightened to restricting female proposals to the modern leap day!

So with more women plucking up the courage to pop the question, the management team at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury are encouraging as many women as possible to ask the question at the four-star venue where they will be able to take advantage of some fantastic offers including £1,000 discount off wedding packages at the award-winning venue*.

Colin Badcock, general manager at the four-star venue said: “Leap day has been associated with many age-old traditions, superstitions and folklore with the most well known being proposals by women.

“We’re all aware that men can sometimes be a bit slow on the uptake and, occasionally, just need a shove in the right direction, so many women take matters into their own hands and make the most of this once-every-four-year opportunity.

“Our idea is to add a little sparkle to what could turn out to be quite an occasion. So those who do propose in the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill will firstly be given a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. We will also have in place a number of fantastic offers including the £1,000 discounted wedding package.”
