As winter takes a frosty grip we will almost certainly see further ‘weather bombs’.
Happily today’s Big Deal on a Champagne afternoon tea at the lovely Marine Hotel in Troon is the culinary equivalent of a well stocked air raid shelter.
Outside, the rain may lash and the wind may howl but it never seems to matter very much when you are sitting pretty with a flute of Champagne and a selection of cakes waiting for your attention.
With vouchers valid until the end of March 2015, this offer on Champagne afternoon tea for two would make a thoughtful gift and keep its recipient smiling until spring pitches up and the all clear sounds.
Short drive from Glasgow
Handily located at just 30 miles from Glasgow, The Marine Hotel has long been one of the gems of the Ayrshire coast. It’s particularly popular with golfers who love the fact that it overlooks the 18th hole of the Royal Troon course.
Purpose built in 1894, the hotel was given 4 AA stars in 1912 and has maintained that rating ever since – the only Scottish hotel to have done so.
Afternoon tea & Champagne
Option 1 of this stunning Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a magnificent Champagne afternoon tea at The Marine Hotel. Option two is for four people.
While drinking in the views over the Clyde Firth and onto Arran, guests will be served finger sandwiches; scones with jam and cream along with tempting cakes such as strawberry meringues and chocolat délices.
Tea or coffee will be offered and, of course, a glass of chilled Champagne.
Splendid Christmas present
As we noted, this Big Deal with The Marine Hotel in Troon would make a thoughtful Christmas present.
Or you could simply buy a few and use them to treat friends and family.
Is it time to take Gran for a spin in the car? Ever taken the family to Culzean Castle?
Today’s offer on a Champagne afternoon tea for two would add sparkle to any day trip in early 2015.
