The last Champagne cork has been popped and the choc box is bare – the festive season is over.
Fortunately, today’s New Year Lift Big Deal with Edinburgh’s G&V Royal Mile Hotel is just the ticket for banishing the blues and boosting your mood.
A stunning, five star hotel on the Royal Mile, the G&V blends effortless contemporary style with an historic Edinburgh location.
As handy for the Castle as it is for Harvey Nick’s, it is the ideal location for an indulgent afternoon.
Available Sunday to Friday, this relaxing Big Deal is for one or two people to enjoy a two course lunch with a glass of a wine plus a relaxing 45 minute treatment at Spa G&V.
Your lunch is in the cosmopolitan Bar G&V where, as the hotel puts it, delicious drinks meet elegant eating.
Including a glass of wine, beer or a soft drink, guests can choose from a selection of main courses such as ricotta and pumpkin ravioli with Amaretto; the quinoa salad; Scottish smoked salmon served with goat’s cheese, red onion, boiled egg and pickled lemon or the hearty Scottish beef burger.
The choice of desserts features the hotel’s artisan ice cream; Catalan foam with berries; a tiramisu or the cake of the day from the talented patisserie chef.
Spa treatments will take place in the hotel’s G&V Spa. An oasis of relaxation and rejuvenation, the spa is a hidden haven which is set high above the city.
Guests can choose one of the following 45 minute treatments:
Aromatherapy Associates hydrating facial – luxurious rose oils are used to help condition and deeply nourish the skin. The result is smooth, radiant and replenished skin and a relaxed state of mind.
Indian head, neck and shoulder massage – combining gentle yet stimulating techniques on the scalp, neck, and shoulders, this treatment calms the mood and helps soothe headaches and migraines.
Hydrating hand treatment with file and polish – featuring a soothing paraffin wax treatment, file and lacquer application, this luxurious treat will keep your hands happy in winter.
