Arriving on 23rd October 2020 for two nights


Kerry Barnes, Hotel Sales Manager of the Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hotel and Spa and Anu Desai from ITO Tours, invited in October 2019 group organisers from all over the UK to visit and sample one of ITO Tours newest additions to its hotel family, The Mercure Walton Hall Hotel & Spa.

Simply put the weekend was a resounding success and group bookings for 2020 were exceptional, see the comments below and see what some of the group organisers came back and told us.

With 2020 having been booked so early for 2020, we have already booked our dates in 2021 and again at our exclusive package with the hotel which includes Dinner, bed and breakfast and of course Drink vouchers for your passengers.

We anticipate this hotel in 2021 to be a total sell out for the dates we have been lucky enough to hold for you, especially as we have dates from February to December packages  and when they go on open sale to all of our group organisers we expect demand to be high. Also,with so many groups that may have missed their group’s annual trip this year, what a perfect way to get next year’s trip now booked in for your members.

The Mercure Walton Hall hotel is the perfect place for those who want something different and offers you a package that includes Dinner, Breakfast and Drink vouchers.  This package at the hotel is currently a unique package for ITO Tours, and believe us when we tell you that the hotel is perfect for so many types of group visits.   Packages like these are something that more and more of our group organisers are asking for.  Also, a good location is something that groups now demand, and this hotel has many different options for groups to consider for their stay.

With the UK (Staycation is the new Europe!) becoming ever popular for our group organisers, Kerry has twisted her Boss’s arm and they have has kindly agreed to host a  second group organisers weekend at the hotel on the date shown above, this is to allow those group organisers who missed out on the last weekend an opportunity to see, and sample one of our most popular hotels and its unique package, we are sure will give you as the group booker a chance to go back to your groups and committees with many different ideas to use the hotel as a base for a return visit with your group.

Kerry from the Mercure Walton Hall Hotel, and the team at ITO Tours, share a common goal being in that they want you as the group organiser to stay in this hotel with its lovely surroundings with your groups, and enjoy unrivalled quality of food, staff service and a stunning location.

By attending this weekend, we hope to show you that your next group trip in the UK should be with ITO Tours and the Mercure Walton Hotel, in conjunction with Kerry and her team and help us take steps forward to bring normality and positivity back to the not only the hotel but also back to the  British Group Travel industry.

This weekend is the opportunity to introduce new group organisers to the Mercure Walton Hotel and Spa. Kerry and Anu would like you to visit this property with a view of coming back with a group.

The hotel is in a great location and offers a unique package only bookable by ITO Tours. We know that this hotel will be one that you not only will want to return to with your groups but will also want to recommend to other groups.

This weekend is open to bona-fide group organisers who have a genuine interest in booking a weekend with ITO Tours to the Mercure Walton Hotel in 2021. Please ensure that you will genuinely consider promoting the hotel and the package on offer, and that you are attending the weekend only to genuinely look at booking group stays at the hotel. We at ITO Tours pride ourselves with working with the right kind of hotels for our groups stay and wish to respect the hotels who fund trips such as these and invite like-minded group bookers who want to find a new product for their groups.  We believe that this hotel will be sell-out for 2020 and beyond.

We feel that with thanks to Kerry’s support, this package is one of the best offered to groups in the UK.

Best regards
