A calendar is a little like a garden – plant the seed of a treat now and when it blossoms into something lovely later on, you will be thankful.
So when you give someone the gift of a loch side mini-break for Christmas, you’re adding some extra special magic to their calendar.
And if you need some inspiration, how about an uber-romantic overnight stay at a 4-star leisure hotel on Loch Lomond with a 2 AA Rosette restaurant?
This offer from Lodge on Loch Lomond is available until March and includes a full Scottish breakfast, three course dinner, full use of the spa facilities and, of course, gorgeous views.
Just 30 minutes from Glasgow, The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel sits in the heart of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Many of the rooms and the hotel’s Colquhoun’s Restaurant offer undisturbed panoramic views of Scotland’s most breath-taking loch and its majestic, mountainous surroundings.
Luxurious overnight stay
Available seven days a week from 6th January until the end of March 2019, this offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a Classic Graham or Executive Munro room.
Guests will enjoy a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a sumptuous three course dinner from the Market Menu in the award-winning and recently refurbished Colquhoun’s Restaurant.
Full use of the leisure complex is also included in this offer.
There is also the option to stay from Sunday to Friday up to and including 23rd December, subject to availability.
The rooms are designed in a contemporary lodge style with views over the loch, the beach or towards the picturesque village of Luss.
As well as a bath, shower and WC, all rooms have double or twin beds, a two seater sofa, colour television, in-room iron and board, hair-dryer, tea and coffee and direct dial telephones.
Room allocation depends on availability. Guests can upgrade to a Deluxe Corbett room for a supplement of £30.
The Deluxe Corbetts have beautiful glass front balconies with amazing views over the loch and your very own sauna.
Friday and Saturday night stays will be charged a supplement of £40 a night.
Featuring panoramic views of the loch and Ben Lomond, Colquhoun’s Restaurant has a brilliant reputation for delicious modern cuisine created using the freshest of local produce.
It is an approach that has won the restaurant two AA Rosettes.
Menus change regularly but typical mains might include the Lodge special of hay & juniper roe deer fillet with salt roasted celeriac, caper chimichurri, cashew nut butter, beets & tarragon scented tea, the battered North Sea white fish with tartar sauce, pickled onions and chunky chips and the chargrilled grass-fed sirloin steak with chunky chips, roast tomato and red onion salad.
Leisure and pampering
Guests can enjoy all that the leisure centre has to offer at the Lodge on Loch Lomond. In addition to a sixteen metre pool, there is also a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and laconium.
The hotel also offers spa and holistic treatments from Heart & Soul Beauty. These include Eve Taylor facials, massages, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures.
See & do Loch Lomond
Guests here are spoiled for choice. From golf, horse riding, 4×4 driving, shooting and quad bikes to jet skiing, cruising and fishing, the hotel can help organise brilliant days out.
Alternatively, just pull on your walking boots and enjoy the natural treasures of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Previous guests have shared plenty of praise for Lodge on Loch Lomond on TripAdvisor, including these recent reviews:
‘We stayed here about 10 years ago and had a great time. Returned today and what a transformation, it was lovely before but has been raised to a whole new level. Restaurant and bar have been redone, more modern, but still keeping the character. The rooms are just amazing. Our room didn’t have one but most rooms now have glass balconies which means the loch looks like the most beautiful infinity pool. WOW!!!!’
‘This is a great place to eat on Loch Lomond! If you have a boat there is a jetty, the restaurant overlooks the Loch and the food, service and staff are excellent! Decent menu and prices are typical for places around Loch Lomond.’
‘Amazing. Stayed overnight at the Lodge on Loch Lomond as part of a tour of Scotland and it was clearly the best stopover of our trip. We booked a Corbett room which had a balcony with an amazing view over the loch. When we eventually managed to drag ourselves off the balcony we had a lovely sauna in our own 2 person sauna which was part of our bathroom, truly amazing!! The only downside of this was that it set a standard that none of our other stopovers could hope to match and this, sadly, proved to be the case. Thanks for an amazing experience and we hope to return again in the very near future.’
Fabulous festive surprise
Today’s Big Deal from Lodge on Loch Lomond hotel offers everything you need to give someone a Christmas gift to remember. This includes an amazing location, AA Rosette dining and relaxing leisure club.
