Fingers crossed, touch wood and hope for the best but it looks as though spring is almost sprung.
Come out of hibernation by taking up today’s Big Deal on an overnight break with the Radisson Blu in Glasgow city centre.
The Easter hols aren’t far away and anyone keen on a change of scene will relish this getaway.
City centre location
Based on Argyle Street, right in the centre of the action, the Radisson Blu is a smart, stylish and comfortable hotel with rather striking architecture.
Today’s Big Deal comes in two varieties. For £79, two people can stay for one night in a standard double or twin room. Included in the deal are a full cooked breakfast and a bottle of house wine in your room on arrival.
Alternatively, for £109, two people can stay for one night in a standard double or twin room and enjoy a three course dinner from a set menu plus coffee in the hotel’s funky Collage restaurant. A bottle of house wine in the room and a full cooked breakfast are also included.
The rooms at the Radisson Blu have all the amenities that you would expect of a modern, city centre hotel. Standard rooms are decorated in soft shadings and boast walk-in showers as well as floor-to-ceiling windows. These rooms also feature amenities like free high-speed Internet access, iPod docking stations, bathrobe and slippers and mini bar.
The deal also includes full use of the state of the art gym facilities at LA Fitness, including use of the pool.
Guests who choose to take dinner in the hotel will enjoy the colourful Collage Restaurant which contains pictures by Sir Peter Blake, designer of The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper cover.
The menu changes regularly but typical dishes might be the pan-seared monkfish served with smoked bacon mashed potato and asparagus with shallot cream or the marinated pork fillet wrapped in pancetta and accompanied by an apple and cider compote with sage jus.
Big night out
Whether you choose to eat in or out, this Big Deal would be ideal for anyone keen sample Glasgow’s nightlife but it would also be ideal for the hardcore shopper.
After a thorough examination of Glasgow’s many boutiques and designer shops, what could be better than relaxing over dinner in a smart hotel?
