The Big Deal’s Mystic Meg Forecasting Department has examined its collective crystal balls and divined that we’re in for a dreamy summer with above average temperatures; plenty of sunshine and an increase in the numbers of chirpy ice cream sellers.
Put your towel down on a summer break with today’s Big Deal at the gorgeous Loch Fyne Hotel and Spa at Inveraray.
If you haven’t been to Inveraray, it sits on the banks of Loch Fyne, one of Argyll’s most stunning beauty spots.
As an added bonus, the hotel is close to Inveraray Castle, the setting for the Christmas edition of Downton Abbey.
The Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay, Sunday to Thursday, in a standard double or twin room at Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa.
Full use of the leisure facilities is part of the offer.
Guests will enjoy a six course set menu for dinner and a full Scottish breakfast the next morning – ideal preparation for a day exploring the spectacular Argyll countryside or simply enjoying the hotel’s beautiful location on the banks of Loch Fyne.
All the rooms are en-suite, decorated in warm, natural shades and fitted with high quality fittings and furnishings including coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and trouser press. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel.
Locally produced ingredients are shown at their best by the skilled team in the kitchen. The six course table d’hote menu changes daily but typical sample dishes might be a taster of smoked duck and berry compote followed by pressed belly of pork, apple jelly and walnut salad and then a pavé of lamb, roasted garlic and rosemary wilted greens, pan jus.
The food is complemented by an extensive wine list; many malt whiskies and a great selection of brews from Loch Fyne Ales.
The hotel’s spa features comprehensive leisure facilities including an indoor heated pool, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and the much loved outdoor Canadian hot tub. For an additional charge, spa therapies and beauty treatments are available in the Sonas Spa. Advance booking is required for spa treatments.
Out and about
Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa’s location is spectacular but it’s also ideal for exploring Inveraray and mid-Argyll. Nearby attractions include Inveraray Jail; the castle we mentioned earlier, as well as golfing, horse-riding, hill-walking and fishing.
The Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa has plenty of friends on TripAdvisor. This is what a recent guest had to say:
‘Great hotel. Great location. Great service. Great weather. Within walking distance of Inveraray where there were several restaurants and bars with live music. Head in the other direction for beautiful scenery. Must visit Inveraray Castle where Downton Abbey episode was filmed.’
