Is there anything more romantic than being whisked away to a remote Highland hotel for a luxury break?
Get love-struck with today’s Big Deal at one of Scotland’s most romantic hotels: Ardanaiseig.
At the end of a winding track near Taynuilt in Argyll, where the slopes of Ben Cruachan fall into the clear waters of Loch Awe, Ardanaiseig is a magical place.
A previous winner of the Most Romantic Hotel category at the Scottish Hotel Awards, it is the ideal spot for sharing a short break with your nearest and dearest.
Garden view room
Available seven days a week, option one of this offer is for two people to enjoy a one night stay in a double garden view room. The offer includes a delicious charcuterie sharing platter on arrival and full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
Also available seven days a week, option two is for a two consecutive night stay in a double garden view room. The offer includes a full Scottish breakfast each morning and, on the first night of your stay, a three course a la carte dinner to the value of £35 a head.
Friday and Saturday night stays must be for two nights and will be charged a supplement of £50 per night.
Each room is individually designed and decorated with eye-catching antique furniture. The owner of the Ardanaiseig is an art dealer and his passion for collecting beautiful things is clear through out the hotel.
From suits of armour to throne chairs via spectacular paintings to the exquisite grand piano in the drawing room, there seems to be a treasure around every corner and exploring the hotel is an absolute joy.
3 AA Rosettes
A full Scottish breakfast each morning is included in both options.
If you decide to take dinner in the hotel then you are in for a top flight gastronomic experience, not to mention fantastic views of the loch from the dining room.
The kitchen uses the finest, seasonal produce which Scotland can provide to create their mouth-watering dishes.
The menu changes regularly but typical main courses might be the fillet of wild turbot with peas, tomato, artichoke and morels or the charred sirloin of Scotch Aberdeen Angus with potato purée, wild mushrooms and home-smoked ham.
It’s no wonder that the restaurant has three AA rosettes.
This Big Deal writer stayed there a while back and its loch side setting is as achingly beautiful as the house’s lavish interior.
Not that you need to take my word for it. As well as numerous awards, the Ardanaiseig Hotel is rated
a brilliant 4/5 on TripAdvisor and the following quote is typical:
‘Idyllic Scottish retreat. Just what your mind would envisage as the ideal retreat in Scotland. Fantastic decor and character. Friendly and courteous staff. Spacious, luxurious and comfortable rooms. Setting is spectacular alongside Loch Awe with motor boats for rental and exploration. Food excellent. Roaring fires, whisky galore… Worth every penny will be back. One of the truly great hotel experiences to be had…’
