Hands up if your idea of a relaxing short break starts with an early morning body search from airport security and ends with a credit card bill that shows you paid 17€ for an espresso.

And now, hands up if your idea of a relaxing short break begins with a scenic drive through the Borders.

Take it easy and enjoy a reviving Borders break with today’s Big Deal on a break for two at the four star Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa in Peebles.

Happy guests

The Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa has plenty of enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor. These are excerpts from three recent visitors:

‘Lovely hotel. This is the second time we have stayed here and I’ve been very impressed both times. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Great value for dinner and breakfast which consisted of great quality food. The staff were friendly and very helpful.’

‘We were made very welcome. The staff were attentive and friendly. Our room was very clean with a beautiful view of the hillside. Would definitely recommend you stay here. Great for golf trips and spa days. Very nice relaxing atmosphere.’

This contributor enjoyed time away with the family:

‘Fantastic family weekend stay. I would highly recommend the Cardrona Hotel. We stayed here… for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday. The beds were amazingly comfortable. The pool facilities were great. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and generous helpings. Views from the room were beautiful. The staff were very helpful, especially making sure my grandmother was catered for and helping her with the extra wee requests she had… I truly couldn’t fault our stay and we all left feeling very relaxed…’

Relaxing getaway

This Big Deal would be ideal for anyone who could use a refreshing break during the warmer months.

Forest walks; perhaps a cold drink in the bar; picture perfect drives around the Borders – they could all be part of a romantic summer escape.
