The Big Deal boffins have been figuring out the formula for the perfect getaway.
It’s surprisingly simple:
Charming hotel + stunning scenery x convenient location = perfect getaway
Just over a two hour drive from Glasgow, the Crinan Hotel in Argyll fits perfectly.
With views across the water to Duntrune Castle and out to Jura, the hotel enjoys one of the most beautiful panoramas in Scotland.
Hotel with character
Located at the north end of the Crinan Canal, the Crinan Hotel sits in a picturesque fishing village.
For around two centuries, the hotel has been the hub of this small, local community.
Today, the family-run Crinan Hotel is an international meeting point for Hebridean sailors, fishermen, yachtsman, holiday-makers and, above all, lovers of seafood and the best Scottish produce.
Available seven days a week, this offer is for 2 people to relax with an overnight stay in a classic double room at the Crinan Hotel.
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the offer – just the thing to set you up for a day exploring the West Coast.
Individually designed rooms
The hotel has twenty rooms over three floors and a lift to reach them. All the rooms have been individually designed by Frances Macdonald, one of the owners.
Classic rooms are all ensuite with shower or bath, or both, tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer, terrestrial television, telephone and complimentary toiletries.
There may be the option to upgrade to a superior double/twin room, family or balcony room from £50 per room per night.
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the offer but seafood lovers won’t regret booking in for lunch or dinner at the hotel’s Crinan Seafood Bar, Westward Restaurant or the rooftop Lock 16 which is open until September.
Using ingredients such as langoustines, razor clams and scallops which are landed just 50m from the hotel, the kitchen has earned many top awards and glowing reviews for its fantastic food.
One of the best known hotels in Argyll, Crinan Hotel has lots of admirers. This Big Deal writer has enjoyed a couple of tremendous lunches at the hotel and the views really are spectacular.
But you don’t need to believe me. This is what one recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Beautiful… I thoroughly recommend this hotel. The receptionist was extremely warm and welcoming and the hotel is very pet friendly; dogs are allowed everywhere with the exception of the restaurants.
The views are magnificent, the rooms are light and airy and the beds are so comfortable.
We ate in the seafood bar, which is delicious and reasonably priced. The whole place just has a unique and lovely feel to it and I can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks for an enjoyable and memorable stay. We will most definitely be back!’
