Just nine days to go and you haven’t bought one present yet and Amazon’s guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery option is about to expire. Time to book a quick city break with your beloved - somewhere near enough to get to hassle free yet unique enough to satisfy a man of your high – if rather absent-minded - standards.
Amsterdam’s Dylan Hotel might be that place. Housed in a big old central canal house with a cosy, candlelit bar and open fire, it’s running a “high wine” package until the 29th, which includes an overnight stay in a double room, breakfast, and a tasting combination nightly of six different great wines including a festive aperitif. The package is available from €207,50 per person, per room per night.
