Newsflash! Alert! Man the lifeboats! And so on! Not wishing to be overdramatic, but our two-nights-for-the-price-of-one hotel deal with The Times comes to an end on Saturday, so if you’re in the market for a half-price two-night getaway, ACT FAST! BUY NOW! MIND YOUR HEAD! And suchlike.

There are 70 hotels in the UK and Europe taking part, and believe it or not, there’s still some weekend availability between now and January (but not at Christmas or New Year). At last look, half-price weekend stays were still available at several hotels. To save you the effort of sifting through, we’ve listed them below. All you need to do to bag yourself an astonishingly good value winter break is visit our hotel offer page, pick a hotel, and get the blighter booked – either online, or by calling our ever-ready Smith24 team on 0845 034 0701.

Rates given below are for two people, for two nights. Not bad. eh?






  • Coral del Rey, Seville: 18–19, 26–28 November, all weekends in December; from €302
  • Astoria7 Hotel, San Sebastian: all weekends until 9 January; from €181
  • Palacia del Retiro, Madrid: all weekends until 9 January; from €238


  • Dar Seven, Marrakech: 19–20 and 26–27 November, 9–10 and 17–18 December, 8–9 January; from €150


  • Three Sisters, Tallinn: all weekends in November, 10–11 and 17–18 December, 7–8 January; from €190

So, if you want to treat someone special (eg yourself) to a luxurious Smith-style break for half the price it would cost anyone else, hotfoot it to this offer page, note the super-secret* magic passwords, and book before tomorrow. You don’t even need to be a member.

* OK, not that secret.

  • shame it’s not in Sweden, I am off to Stockholm next weekend.
    Any suggestions for a romantic lunch?

    You could try F12, our top lunch spot:

  • We’re updating our Stockholm guide too – we’ve just written an insider piece for Verve travel magazine with a host of top new travel tips that will be published on our site soon too. For romantic lunches in Stockholm, our fine-dining suggestion would be Matsalen, the two-Michelin-starred Mathias Dahlgren restaurant at the Grand hotel (+46 86 793 584) – it’s gorgeously grand, with parquet floors, plush velvet-uphostered Chesterfields, Carlo Scarpa chandeliers and butter-yellow, butter-soft leather-covered dining chairs by Ilse Crawford; or for something a little more contempo-cool, try hottest new ‘in’ spot B.A.R, where you select fish from the ice counter and have it cooked to order.
