£22 instead of £45 for Luxury Afternoon Tea for 2 People at the stylish 5 star Mar Hall; a 51% saving
Afternoon tea for two is one of life’s more sophisticated pleasures and Mar Hall is one of the most elegant venues in Scotland in which to enjoy it.
Five star hotel
A five star golf and spa resort, Mar Hall is just fifteen minutes from Glasgow, but, tucked away in its own 240 acre woodland estate, it feels a million miles from the hustle of the city. The resort also has a free car park.
The Mar Hall staff are far too discreet to make a fuss about it but Mar Hall’s luxury attracts oodles of celebs. Everyone from Ronan Keating and Brad Pitt to Coldplay via Kylie and Halle Berry has popped in at some point.
Afternoon tea for two
Taking place every afternoon between 2.30pm and 5pm, afternoon tea at Mar Hall is a luxurious affair.
It includes a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches with a choice of cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam along with unlimited speciality teas and coffee.
Afternoon tea is served in the Grand Hall of Mar Hall. Furnished with French style Louis XIV chairs and low coffee tables, it is hung with fine paintings and splendid tapestries.
The 20ft windows allow ample natural light and views of the formal gardens. The Grand Hall has been described as breath-taking but not so much as to stop guests enjoying a good catch-up over the tea and scones.
The resident pianist on the baby grand completes the rather idyllic picture.
Christmas gift idea
This stunning Big Deal runs until the beginning of March and would make an ideal Christmas present. Alternatively, use it to escape the pre-festive madness and treat yourself and a friend or family member to a relaxing afternoon tea in rather scrumptious surroundings.
