The Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester is leaving IHG.
Here is a hotel update for a property we have mentioned occasionally. The Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester – Five Lakes, one of the few IHG resort properties in the UK, has left the chain.
It is still on the IHG website but not bookable. The official hotel website is here and shows it operating as ‘Five Lakes Resort’.
BA’s new 100th birthday ad launches today
British Airways is launching its ‘100th birthday’ advert this morning. It is an interesting piece with a mix of celebrities (Gary Oldman, Olivia Colman, Winnie the Pooh) on a Boeing 787 alongside members of the public representing the full spectrum of British society. There is also a section filmed in the First Wing at Terminal 5.
Is is better than Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday ad (YouTube link)? Could anything be? Find out at 11.30.
EDIT: here is the link to the ad, now live on YouTube
