Competition: Win a weekend for two in a boutique hotel

SPRING is here and what better way to mark the best of all seasons with a delightful break away, courtesy of the Comet.

We’ve teamed up with Hotel du Vin in Harrogate to offer a stunning weekend for two in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside, staying at one of the best boutique hotels there is.

Created from a row of eight Georgian-styled houses that have been used as a hotel since the 1930s, Hotel du Vin Harrogate features 48 bedrooms, all featuring luxurious handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep roll-top baths and powerful drench showers, TVs, DVDs and air conditioning.

Located in the town centre, the hotel overlooks The Stray, a magnificent 200-acre common, and offers a billiards room, wine cellar and snug. The newly added Health du Vin offers an extensive range of treatments and alfresco dining in the courtyard during the summer months.

Along with the divine rooms, the food is also an amazing attraction and under the tutelage of head chef, Kevin Whiteford, Bistro du Vin is at the heart of the hotel, a classic, Frenchstyled, elegant and informal setting for lunch, dinner, to meet, celebrate or simply pass the time.

You can dine on the finest produce that Yorkshire has to offer from local heroes such as Ramus Seafood, the family run Bleiker’s Smokehouse and R&J Butchers. These are only a handful of the many legendary suppliers Hotel du Vin are honoured to include within their Homegrown & Local philosophy. Add to this an extensive and eclectic wine list and an impressive array of wines by the glass brought to you by head sommelier Mark Perlaki and his team, who are always on hand to help with any queries you may have.

Hotel du Vin has also become famous for its wedding and with exquisite private rooms, gorgeous suites, a tranquil courtyard, heavenly dining and your own dedicated events organiser, there can be no more fitting a stage as you glide elegantly from ceremony to wedding breakfast and
