With just a few weeks to go before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur does the thought of staying at home and going to your usual three times a year shul fill you with dread? Will you end up sitting next to the person you see those three times a year and still don't know what their name is?
If you can't face up to another Yom Tov at your shul, then getting away for the festivals can be a good idea for a number of reasons - new faces and new scenery.
So what can you do? Get on down to Bournemouth and take part in something organised by one of the two only all kosher hotels - the New Ambassador and The Acacia Gardens Hotel.
The New Ambassador is well known as the hotel everyone's mother, father and indeed grandparents went to. Full board means just that, come in 12 stone and leave 14 stone and is offered throughout the Yom Tovim with all information easily accessible through its website - www.newamb.com
The Acacia Gardens Hotel in the new kid on the block which opened in September and is aimed at a younger audience, but doesn't seem to have a website.
Both deliver on providing a place where you can be within a Jewish environment and do what you want when you want.
Want to go to shul, no problem. Don't want to go to shul, no problem. The New Ambassador even has a shul on the premises.
The London Beth Din supervises the New Ambassador while the honour for supervision at The Acacia goes to the Manchester Beth Din.
At the New Ambassador, the longer you stay the cheaper the room rate. Stay for just 4 nights during Rosh Hashanah and it will cost from £330 for the stay depending on the type of room you go for while stay for 7 nights and its from £435.
