Putting the win into winter, the joy into January and the savings into your pocket, today’s Big Deal is for a relaxing stay at the lovely Fisher’s Hotel in Pitlochry.
Originally a coaching inn, Fisher’s Hotel was one of Scotland’s most fashionable stop-offs during the Victorian period and, among others, it has played host to Robert Louis Stevenson.
Conveniently located in the town centre, the hotel recently came under new ownership.
While it retains its Victorian elegance, the new owners are ensuring that it also features plenty of modern comforts.
Today’s Big Deal would be perfect for anyone keen to relax by exploring Pitlochry’s charms.
It would also be ideal for those keen on crisp winter walks, mountain biking or fishing – the salmon season starts this month on the River Tay.
Pitlochry is less than an hour and three quarters from Edinburgh or Glasgow by car, making a convenient location for a getaway.
Fisher’s Hotel has limited free car parking facilities and the hotel is close to both Pitlochry train and bus stations.
Available seven days a week, option one of this Big Deal is for two people to stay one night in a twin or double room at Fisher’s Hotel.
The offer includes a welcome drink of whisky or sherry on arrival; a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a 10% discount on all food bought in the hotel’s lounge or restaurant.
All rooms are ensuite and there is WiFi in some of the hotel’s public areas.
There is a supplement of £20 per night per room for Friday and Saturday night stays.
Food & music
Popular dishes on offer at the hotel include slow-braised Angus steak pie; crisp beer battered haddock and, of course, the Highland haggis, neeps and tatties with whisky sauce.
As well as great food, Fisher’s Hotel offers fantastic entertainment with pop, rock and indie bands hitting their groove every Friday night in The Kingfisher bar.
Fisher’s Hotel has attracted lots of enthusiastic reviews. This one is from a party who stayed between Christmas and New Year:
‘The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It was lovely and warm and food was excellent. Some of the rooms were updated and others have still to be refurbished. It was a first visit to Pitlochry for two of my friends and they were very impressed by the welcome they received at The Fishers. We will be back in 2014.’
If you would like to chill with a new year break then snap up today’s Big Deal and enjoy the warm welcome at Fisher’s Hotel in Pitlochry.
