It’s a little known fact but no-one has ever been bored on Mull. It has castles, distilleries; shipwrecks for SCUBA diving; golf courses and some of the best wildlife watching in the UK.
From white-tailed eagles to basking sharks, it’s a nature lover’s paradise. And we’ve not even started on the island’s central role in the gripping political children’s drama series Balamory.
So, can you guess where today’s Big Deal comes from?
Situated on the crescent of Craignure Bay, the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa has panoramic sea views which can be enjoyed from its restaurant, its outdoor hot tub and many of its rooms.
The hotel is handily close to the ferry terminal but feels gloriously remote from the traffic jams of the Central Belt. Rush hour feels a long way from Mull.
While it was closed for the winter, all of its public spaces and each of the 86 bedrooms were redecorated.
Suitably revitalised, the hotel is now keen to show guests its fresh new interior when it reopens for the season at the start of April.
Two night break
This rather splendid Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a two night stay at the recently refurbished Isle of Mull Hotel. Breakfast is included on both mornings and guests will enjoy a three course dinner for two in the Sheallach-Na-Mara restaurant on the first night of their stay.
Breakfast is something of a speciality at The Isle of Mull Hotel. You might want to try the venison sausage or porridge oats with honey. Dinner is just as delicious with Mull beef, venison, fish and game making regular appearances on the menu.
Many of the rooms have views of the bay and they are all elegantly designed with contemporary, natural décor. There is free WiFi available in the hotel’s public areas.
The hotel has fantastic leisure facilities. As well as an outdoor hot tub, it features a 17-metre swimming pool, children’s splash pool; an air conditioned, fully equipped gym with outdoor decking area; steam room; Norwegian spruce sauna and a hydro foot spa.
Alternatively, just relax in the lounge bar – it has over a hundred drams just begging to be tasted.
