A well known brand of chocolate biccy used to advise its customers to ‘have a break, have a Kit-Kat’. Nice idea. They are lovely biscuits but, while piling one into your cakehole will undoubtedly bring some fleeting pleasure, it fails to measure up beside the super relaxing, nerve-soothing bliss of a short getaway break.
Take up today’s Big Deal with the Thistle Hotel in Milnathort and the bics can stay in the barrel while you chill in Kinross-shire.
Situated in the centre of the village of Milnathort, the Thistle Hotel is well placed for exploring St Andrews or the gorgeous East Neuk of Fife. It would also make a great base of anyone planning to do T in the Park.
Slap bang in the centre of the village, the Thistle was originally an old coaching inn. While it dates back to the 17th century, it was fully refurbed a couple of years back and its six en-suite bedrooms feature flat screen TVs with DVD players, Sky TV, iPod docks and free WiFi connections.
The hotel’s Artisan lounge bar is a friendly spot for a drink or a game of pool while 25 is the name of the Italian American restaurant and bar. The deal is for three courses. Typical starters at 25 include the chowder, half baby back ribs and the shrimp cocktail. For main courses, the choice includes old favourites such as pizza, pasta, fajitas, burgers, hot dogs and salads.
On the drinks front, there is a large list of lagers and beers, some especially imported from the good ole US of A in their original aluminium containers.
Forget about the Kit-Kat. If you want to have a break, then have a Big Deal:
£69 for one night dinner, bed and breakfast for two people at the Thistle Hotel in Milnathort; a 56% reduction on the standard £159
