The darling buds of May are out and blue skies are no longer a rarity. We’ve even had reports, so far unconfirmed, that the temperature may go over 20 degrees centigrade.
Make the most of the freak weather conditions by snapping up today’s offer of an overnight getaway break at the lovely Shawlands Park Hotel.
Located just outside Larkhall and halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, this family-run hotel has been wowing guests after a recent refurbishment.
Set in its own extensive grounds in the picturesque Clyde Valley, the Shawlands Park Hotel is easy to get to but feels a long way from the city – perfect for an overnight break.
This relaxing offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a twin or double Executive room. All the bedrooms are en suite, with a hairdryer, free toiletries and a power shower.
As well as a full cooked breakfast in the morning, guests will be treated to a two course dinner from the Specially Selected Chefs Menu in the hotel’s stylish Ash Grill Restaurant.
A bottle of red, white or rosé wine will be waiting for you in your room when you check in.
The Ash Grill Restaurant is a spacious venue with glass panels framing fantastic views of the Clyde Valley and surrounding countryside.
As part of the offer, guests will enjoy a two course meal in the restaurant. Typical starters include the chicken liver parfait, roasted field mushrooms with goats cheese and, of course, chef’s soup of the day.
Popular main courses include the chicken filled with haggis, traditional steak pie and the roasted breast of duck served on a bed of caramelised red cabbage with fondant potatoes and a cherry jus.
Pudding lovers can look forward to a wide range of delightful dishes to finish.
Some dishes such as the steaks on the grill section will attract a supplement.
Since being refurbished, The Shawlands Park Hotel has won lots of happy fans. This is what one recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Impressed! Have stayed at this hotel a few times over the past few weeks due to work commitments and have been very impressed with everything. All the rooms I have stayed in have been lovely. Clean, comfortable beds, good showers, nice furniture and tastefully decorated throughout. Reception and restaurant staff are professional, helpful, welcoming and really pleasant. Restaurant food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Last nights ‘Caramel shortcake sundae’ was amazing!! I would happily recommend this hotel and can not fault it in anyway.’
