How do you turn cold to cosy; wet to warm and bleak to chic?
Easy, take up today’s Big Deal from The Bayswell Park Hotel and Spa in Dunbar.
The early part of 2016 may well be cold, wet and windy. You can battle the winter blues with this break on the glorious East Lothian coastline, that scenic stretch of beaches, cliffs and romantic castles on Edinburgh’s doorstep.
It’s the ideal destination for a brief getaway from the city, offering bracing sea breezes, romantic beach walks and some glorious scenery.
The Bayswell Park Hotel boasts a superb location, perched on a cliff top beside the Firth of Forth, with majestic coastal views across to the Bass Rock. Recently refurbished guest rooms combine traditional comfort with luxurious contemporary touches.
Today’s Big Deal offers a choice of break to suit your preferences.
Option one is for an overnight B&B stay for two in a luxurious hot tub room, with a 30-minute spa treatment and late checkout.
Option two is for an overnight stay for two in a standard double room with dinner and a late checkout.
Hot tub rooms are the perfect choice for a luxurious romantic break. These spacious boutique style suites have their own private balcony with a hot tub and scenic sea views, so you can enjoy an indulgent wallow while taking in the sunset.
Standard rooms feature relaxed contemporary décor and modern amenities.
Both options are available Sunday to Thursday until 30 June; subject to availability.
A little pampering
The Bayswell Park Hotel Spa is a tranquil retreat offering a variety of treatments and therapies. The Big Deal offers a 30-minute spa treatment for each guest from a repertoire that include back, neck and shoulder massage or skin specific facial.
Dining in style
Option two includes a three course dinner in the hotel’s View Restaurant, a relaxed, light-filled space with all-round vistas over the water, the ideal spot for an intimate dinner.
Menus are distinguished by a strong Scottish accent in contemporary gastropub-style dishes that make use of local produce where possible.
Highlights include starters of Cullen skink, crisp haggis bon-bons or pan-fried scallops; mains of Irn Bru braised Scotch short rib of beef; lightly-spiced venison burgers or steamed East Coast mussels, and desserts such as sticky toffee pudding, rich chocolate tart and affogato with a choice of liqueur.
Of course, option one guests are welcome to book in for lunch or dinner (not included) at the hotel.

The Bayswell Hotel and Spa has earned plenty of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. These are recent contributions:
‘Excellent, simple as that. We’ve just returned from a short stay at The Bayswell. The room was very good and the service excellent and, of course, the views from the windows over the sea were superb. Thanks to Liam and his team. You’ve given us a very enjoyable experience -we’ll be back just as soon as we can.’
This TripAdvisor reviewer was very taken with one particular aspect of his stay:
‘Private hot tubs! Lovely hotel in a lovely town, with lots to see and do, the sandstone cliffs alone make it worth a visit. The real star though is the three rooms that have private hot tubs – I mean, honestly, read that back again – private hot tubs. When I visited, it was a freezing, mid-December night, with light drizzle, and yet the 40 degree hot tubs made it feel like high summer…’
Today’s Big Deal at the Bayswell Hotel and Spa offers a relaxing escape from the everyday and, with availability until the end of June, it provides a welcome break to look forward to in 2016.
This East Lothian break is a brilliant way to enjoy a little romantic quality time in a scenic coastal setting. Book in, make yourself at home and enjoy the views.
