So tell us, when did you last see your overnight bag?
Is it languishing at the back of your wardrobe beneath that dodgy hat you never wear?
For shame – and after all those amazing escapades you shared together. It is time to show that overnight bag some love, we think.
Specifically, by throwing your glad rags into it and heading off somewhere scenic with your other half.
Like, for instance, the Nithsdale Hotel in Dumfries & Galloway with today’s Big Deal for an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast stay for two.
Change of scenery
Today’s deal from the cosy Nithsdale Hotel, just over an hour from Glasgow, offers everything you need for a getaway for two. This includes a comfy twin or double room, a two course dinner for two and breakfast. Plus the perk of a late check-out of noon means that you can take it easy in the morning too.
The hotel is situated in Sanquhar, a small town in Dumfries & Galloway that is perched on the River Nith. The town has ties to Robert Burns and if hiking is your thing, then it offers easy access to the Southern Upland Way.
Plus you will be within handy reach of various Dumfries & Galloway sights such as Loch Trool and Loch Ken, Drumlanrig Castle, Sweetheart Abbey and Logan Botanic Garden.
This deal is available seven days a week, with options for an overnight stay on Sunday, overnight stay from Monday to Saturday or a two night stay, available all week.
Friendly family-run hotel
The Nithsdale has twelve en suite bedrooms, the Oasis restaurant, a lively bar with sports channels, a large function room and a beer garden with an outdoor screen.
You will be staying in a twin or double room with a TV, free WiFi and tea & coffee making facilities. You can also upgrade to a Deluxe room for a supplement.
There’s also a 10% discount for guests, for use towards treatments with the beauty therapist.
Dinner for two at the Oasis
In the evening, you will be dining on two courses from the a la carte menu at the hotel’s Oasis restaurant. Lined with comfortable booths, it is a relaxed place to unwind with a hearty meal.
Menus can change regularly but expect starters such as the haddock & sweet potato Thai fishcake, the broccoli & stilton soup and the garlic mushrooms. Mains could feature the 10z fillet steak with hand-cut chips, the Cajun salmon fillet, and the homemade pizza with a choice of three toppings. Sample desserts include the Prosecco trifle, the raspberry, gin & lavender parfait and the sticky toffee pudding.
Sunday guests will dine on the two course menu, including a starter and the Sunday roast.
Afterwards, why not chill out with a malt in front of the bar’s real coal fire while petting the friendly resident dogs?
If whisky isn’t your tipple, then cocktails are also served as well as a large range of spirits and wines (it is also the only bar in town with real cask ale).
Previous guests at the Nithsdale Hotel have left enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor, most recently these ones:

Delightful Dumfries, Enchanted Galloway
Just sixty minutes from Glasgow and ninety minutes from Edinburgh, the Nithsdale Hotel is perfectly placed for exploring Dumfries & Galloway. Or you could simply spend your time making the most of the cosy hotel bar, exploring the town of Sanquhar and strolling by the River Nith.
However you choose to enjoy yourself, this deal has everything you need to unwind, including a two course dinner for two, breakfast and a late check-out. So isn’t it time you dusted off that overnight bag and treated yourself?
