    Gareth Southgate's hopeful's will be living in luxury next summer as they attempt to conquer Europe for the first time in Germany.

    England will open their Euro 2024 campaign in Gelsenkirchen as they clash with Serbia before games against Denmark and Slovenia. And the Three Lions will do it all from the comfort of the Spa & Golf Resort Weimarer Land.

    The hotel, which normally charges around £300-a-night, boasts seven restaurants, two swimming pools, a gym, a spa and a sauna all located in the remote town of Blankenhain, East Germany.

    It might be a sizeable trip to their opening game, but Southgate will be hoping the luxury on offer will be worth the journey. The resort is famed for its fine cuisine, but Southgate and co might not be able to taste test the menu, with the Three Lions bringing their own food.

    A chef at the resort told The Mirror: "We have had big football teams before and they always bring their own chefs. We will put on a buffet for them, but in the past they haven't ordered from our menus."

    The Mirror also report England have booked 94 rooms at the resort – and it has set the FA back a whopping £800,000. A source said: "Gareth wanted somewhere the players could relax and fully get away from the pressures the tournament brings.

    "It fits the bill perfectly and should allow them to fully relax and prepare. No one knows what will happen on the pitch, but off it the players will be in the best possible place."

    And while the resort boasts three golf courses – two 18 holes and one nine-hole – it will be the robot waiter that gets players talking.

    The robot, known as Robbie, is a valued member of the 130 strong staff at the hotel.

    He gets stuck into his jobs, and England's squad can expect to see Robbie carrying dirty plates and cutlery around the hotel.
