Dukesy Kids Club, for ages 5 to 12, welcomes little holidaymakers with a focus on edutainment (the bookable cooking classes are very popular) along with a special menu full of healthy and nutritious food. And while they're being taken care of, you can focus on your own wellbeing by catching a yoga class by the indoor pool.
Reunite for dinner at the award-winning Great British Restaurant (GBR), which is a firm favourite for its classics with a twist, from hearty roasts with all the trimmings to dark chocolate fondant. For an evening full of entertainment, food and fun, West 14th steakhouse never fails to deliver, with excellent cuts of prime beef and delicious seafood to feast on, sports on the big screens and a live band, ramping up the ambience.
