Firstly, INNSiDE hotels will welcome guests to experience a special Easter Golden Ticket Competition, in partnership with renowned Chocolatier, Oli The Choc - taking place at the brand’s three UK North hotels - including the Quayside site in Newcastle. 

Oli The Choc is known for his innovative and stylish chocolate creations and as the brand's in-house Chocolatier, he heads up impromptu chocolate workshops for guests staying at the hotel, and this Easter, he’s created an extra special treat for the INNSiDE guests. 

The creative Easter Egg range is available to purchase at the hotel kiosk or as an add-on to a guest’s room. A handful of lucky winners will find a Golden Ticket inside their Easter Egg, unlocking the chance to win a stay at an INNSiDE hotel.
