A restaurant a hotel in the Lake District has introduced a new ‘mobile phone creche’ to encourage guests to ditch the device and switch off.
Following a recent refurbishment, The Burlington Restaurant at the four-star Beech Hill Hotel in Windermere will give guests the chance to hand over their mobile phone to front of house staff to place in the ‘creche’ while they dine.
The idea is to allow guests to ‘escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life’ without ‘distracting sound’.
When you are ready to collect your phone at the end of the evening, it will be returned fully charged and UV treated.
Fraser Richardson, proprietor of Beech Hill Hotel commented: “Our mobile phone crèche aims to provide the ultimate in modern dining. The concept of the crèche will allow diners to sit back and relax and enjoy the ambience of Burlington’s without the distraction of telephone calls or notifications”
The Burlington Restaurant holds an AA Rosette and is situated within the 57-bedroom hotel. Beech Hill Hotel is also home to a spa and both indoor and outdoor pools.
