'The Hoff' checks in

We welcome a number of high profile guests to Holbeck Ghyll – and while we’re very discreet about most, occasionally a famous face checks in and has such a presence that we can’t keep it quiet for long. Fast moving up our list of favourite ever guests is David Hasselhoff, who’s been sharing his experience at Holbeck Ghyll with his half a million Twitter followers.

'The Hoff' and his lovely girlfriend, Hayley, checked in for a long weekend before his gruelling panto schedule kicks in at Manchester Opera House on December 8.

Staying in one of our new VIP suites he pushed the boat out with treatments in the spa and a gourmet tasting diner in the Michelin starred restaurant – hailing the latter ‘heaven’ and the overall experience ‘simply perfect’.

Not only did he happily pose for pictures with guests and staff (who he described as ‘rockin good’) and charm everyone in sight, but he donated backstage passes for his show to Windermere School’s charity auction before flying back to Manchester in the Holbeck Ghyll helicopter
