Unless your bezzie mates with Big Liz Windsor, then opportunities to stay at a palace don’t come around so often.
Right this terrible wrong; reclaim your place in the natural order of things and spend a luxurious night at Atholl Palace in Pitlochry with today’s Big Deal.
A splendiferous example of the Scottish Baronial style, The Atholl Palace Hotel stands overlooking wooded parkland grounds and the town to the surrounding hills.
Originally opened as the Athole Hydropathic in Victorian times, the hotel retains many features of the traditional large country house such as chandeliers and cheery open fires.
The historic nature of the Atholl Palace Hotel means that every room is unique, with quirky original features. However, the truly outstanding feature of almost all the rooms is the view.
Naturally, every bedroom is furnished to the highest standards and they all feature ensuite bathrooms, a telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer, a trouser press and flat screen TV.
You can choose to relax in the hotel’s Lavender Spa which includes a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a splendid swimming pool and gym.
Alternatively, you could work up an appetite on the pitch ‘n’ putt course; improve your short game on the putting green or play a few sets on the tennis courts which sit in the hotel’s rather beautiful grounds.
If you want to travel further afield then the hotel’s Pitlochry location makes it the ideal base from which to explore highland Perthshire.
Should the weather threaten showers, then you might potter around on the full-sized snooker table or choose to visit the hotel museum and learn about its fascinating history.
As well as the overnight stay and dram on arrival, today’s Big Deal includes a £15 voucher off dinner and £15 worth of spa vouchers which means you can whoop it up like a lord without the need for a royal bank balance.
