Bring the Kids to Hillside Boutique Hotel for Brunch with Santa Dec 9th
**Full Disclosure: I received free brunch at Hillside Boutique Hotel in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% mine.
Make Hillside Boutique Hotel’s Brunch with Santa part of your family tradition. This picturesque hotel is just a 20 minute drive from San Antonio, but it will seem worlds away, then you get there. Leave the rushed hustle and bustle of city-life behind you and enter the slower pace of the relaxing hill country. Located in the charming town of Castroville, the Hillside Boutique Hotel offers a delightful respite.
Allow yourself to slow down and get unconnected for a bit. Feel the excitement of your children’s anticipation of seeing Santa and delight in watching their eyes light up when they hear his “Ho,ho,ho”. The hotel even has a Dear Santa Letter where they can write down their wish-list before talking to the Big Man himself. Other activities include pictures they can color and take home, a cookie decorating station complete with colored icing and sprinkles. Of course there will be Christmas music and everyone will want to sing along. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the moment! Santa will be at the hotel from 10:30am – 1:30pm.
The brunch is kid friendly too with a waffle and pancake station complete with chocolate chips, butter, syrup and whipped cream, a variety of donuts, a build your own parfait station, sweet rolls and of course hot chocolate.
Adults won’t feel left out with the carving station, eggs, bacon & sausage and hash browns. They will also find delicious comfort dishes like the King Ranch Chicken and the South Texas Breakfast Bake. Order a Mimosa, signature cocktail or wine to go with your meal. After eating, sit back and enjoy the beautiful and serene views off the back porch while you watch the kids play.
The Brunch with Santa fills up fast, so reservations are required! Or call (830) 538-3200.
Or maybe you should consider making this a family weekend get-away. Time away from household duties may be just what you need before heading back to work on Monday. And the kids will thank you for their early visit with Santa. You do want to give the Big Man time to make everything on their list, right!
