When Team Big Deal was at school, romantic gestures included playfully pinching the girl of your dreams; getting her best mate to say you fancied her and then trying to impress the object of your desire with ace wheelie skills.
Those with a more mature approach to romance will prefer today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at the four star Stirling Highland Hotel.
Formerly the city’s High School, the building which now houses the hotel has doubtless seen its fair share of love notes passed around.
Write your own love story by taking your partner to The Stirling Highland Hotel for a romantic overnight break.
Within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh, the four star Stirling Highland Hotel is perfectly located for short breaks in Stirlingshire, the Highlands and the Scottish Lowlands.
The hotel sits in the heart of Stirling and offers panoramic views across the Forth Valley.
Available 7 days per week, the offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in one of the hotel’s standard double or twin rooms with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning. The offer also includes a 3 course dinner in the Scholar’s Restaurant and full use of the excellent leisure facilities.
If you really want to make a weekend of it then you can buy multiple vouchers and stay consecutive nights.
Retaining the charm and character of the original building but with the contemporary comforts you would expect, guest rooms are light and airy. Features include free WiFi, complimentary refreshment trays, an iron and ironing board.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast, the offer includes a 3 course dinner for two in the stylish Scholars’ Restaurant.
The restaurant has been awarded an AA Rosette for its menus which feature both traditional Scottish dishes as well as choices from further afield. Typical starters might be the Cullen skink or the ham hough terrine while popular main courses include the Scottish seafood pie, Guinea fowl or Mushroom Risotto. Certain dishes, such as the fillet steak will incur a supplement.
After dinner, guests can enjoy a nightcap in the Headmaster’s Study bar.
Swim for it
The Health Club at The Stirling Highland Hotel offers fantastic facilities including an extensive fitness suite with Technogym Wellness System; indoor heated swimming pool; soothing spa pool; sauna and steam room.
There are also the Beauty Rooms where, for an extra charge, guests can enjoy a full range of health and beauty treatments.
This offer is available 7 days per week so would make a great weekend break – just the sort of thing that a lucky lover would like to see fall from their Valentine’s Day card.
Reviewers on TripAdvisor have left many a glowing review of The Stirling Highland Hotel. We liked this one from a couple of honeymooners:
‘Lovely first night of honeymoon. We stayed at the Stirling Highland Hotel on our first night of our honeymoon. It was such a great place to stay; the staff was beyond excellent; they upgraded our room, and brought Champagne and chocolates! The room itself was very nice, slept well and it was very quiet. The location was also excellent; we walked everywhere, great views from our room. There is also parking at this hotel if you have a car, we never had a problem finding a space. I would stay here again if ever in Stirling. Great place, great value and great staff.’
