Christmas will soon be here but don’t dive under the duvet at the thought of the Christmas shopping list.
Big Deal has got it all in hand with today’s offer on an overnight break at the Parklands Hotel in Perth.
In the last year, the Parklands Hotel has been named The Bistro of the Year; Perth Hotel of the Year and Boutique Hotel of the Year while Executive Chef Graeme Pallister has been given two AA Rosettes for his cooking.
Put simply, they are at the top of their game.
Option one, available from January, would make a brilliant Christmas present for a loved one.
Available in the run-up to Christmas and beyond, option two would be ideal for anyone keen to take a much needed break from the festive preparations.
Available, seven days a week, from the 6th of January to the 31st of March 2014, option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a king double room at the Parklands Hotel. There will be a chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc waiting in your room to welcome you.
As well as a full Perthshire breakfast, the offer includes £45 credit per couple to spend in either 63@Parklands, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, or in No.1 The Bank Bistro, the hotel’s more informal venue.
Also available seven days a week, from 20th November until the 31st of March 2014, option two is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a superior room with views over the garden and park. A chilled bottle of Prosecco will waiting in your room on arrival.
As well as a full Perthshire breakfast, the offer includes £55 credit per couple to spend in either 63@Parklands, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, or in No.1 The Bank Bistro, the hotel’s more informal venue.
Both options have a £40 supplement for Saturday night stays.
Parklands Hotel has fifteen individually styled rooms. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have en-suite facilities, cable television, DVDs and iPod docks, hair dryer plus tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms are also equipped with WiFi.
Executive Chef Graeme Pallister is a talented man with a passion for local Scottish produce and especially that of Perthshire – the hotel’s Perthshire breakfast shows just how good the area’s artisan food producers really are.
The hotel has two great restaurants. An informal, casual venue, No.1 the Bank Bistro serves dishes like the risotto of Shetland mussels and cockles or the roast Gartmorn farm chicken breast with red wine braised leg, peas à la francaise and thyme roast potatoes.
The light and spacious 63@Parklands shows the kitchen’s skills in their best light. The menu changes depending what’s in season but typical starters might be the cured salmon with tempura oyster and soya vinaigrette or the duck liver and pistachio parfait served with a chicory walnut and Roquefort salad.
The main courses might be haunch of Perthshire venison served with dauphinois potatoes, green lentils, girolles and red currant jus while dessert could be along the lines of the brioche and butter pudding which is served with glazed banana & caramel sauce anglaise.
As we pointed out, The Parklands Hotel has no shortage of awards. The public have been just as pleased. This is what one TripAdvisor review had to say:
‘Fantastic hotel. I stayed for one evening with my mum on a DBB package. What a gem of a hotel. Beautiful rooms, lovely staff, great service, amazing food…. and centrally located for shopping in Perth. I cannot recommend The Parklands highly enough. We will be back soon, I hope.’
Today’s Big Deal would make a great Christmas present. If there is someone in your life who would appreciate a gourmet getaway then grab today’s offer and watch their face light up on Christmas morning.
