How do you fancy immersing yourself in a weekend of luxury right in the middle of London?
A spa weekend for 2 people at 5 star London luxury hotel The Wyndham Grand is being offered as a competition prize by nappy rash cream Sudocrem.
London’s only 5 star all suite hotel, The Wyndham Grand is perfectly positioned in Chelsea Harbour. The best of London is closeby, although you may not want to leave the hotel’s Blue Harbour Spa!
The prize includes a 2 night stay including breakfast, a spa day pass to the Blue Harbour Spa and a half hour spa treatment for each person.
To enter this fab luxury London hotel competition, just visit facebook.com/sudocrem, ‘like’ the page and share your child’s hand made painting or drawing with a brief description.
As an extra bonus, there is £100 Early Learning Centre vouchers for the winning young artist!
You have to be quick though, as the competition deadline is 3rd June…Best of luck.
Brief rules - The entrant should submit a hand crafted painting or drawing created by their son or daughter (aged between 3 – 5 years of age at the closing date of the competition). Please note, submissions must not relate or refer in any way to the use of Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream or any other licensed medicine. A clear scan or photo of the picture and a brief description are acceptable.
Ever dreamed of just giving it all up and going on the road with your… err… band…? Well maybe you can. You can now hire a 40-foot American-style RV – just like you see the racing drivers and rock stars using (I believe they refer to them as their ‘trailers’) – treating yourself to what has to be the most luxurious camping experience money can buy!
UK company Hire Winnebago, based just off the A14 near Kettering in Northants, rents out American RVs to the good and the great – from wanton travelers to A-list festival goers, British Grand Prix teams and even film and TV crews. At the top of their range is a Fleetwood Revolution LE – a three double-bed monster with leather furniture, tiled floors, state-of-the-art audio visual system and full-size shower room.

Yotel the perfect alternative to Heathrow or Gatwick Hilton Hotel London. This is a revolutionary concept from the bloke who brought us Yo! Sushi. Recently launching a second Yotel at Heathrow, these stylish little cubicles allow travellers to catch up with a few zzzzzzzs before or after a flight.
Heathrow Airport’s T4 boasts 32 cabins, perfect for business travellers - from those waiting in transit, to passengers wishing to stay over the day before an early morning flight or long scheduled transfers, as well as unexpected flight delays and cancellations.
These next-generation cabins come fully equipped for all the needs of the business traveller – with desks, free WiFi and wired internet access, workstations and ‘techno wall’ entertainment systems.
Cabins come as ‘Premium’ double, and ‘Standard, large single’ – en suite bath rooms, in cabin entertainment and 24 room service. The cabins are bookable for just a few hours enabling delayed and transfer passengers to relax in privacy in front of a movie or to enjoy a refreshing shower.
Prices for a Standard cabin will range from £25 for four hours and from around £56 overnight, while a Premium cabin will cost from £40 for four hours, and from around £82 overnight.
Cabins can be booked in advance online at www.yotel.com
