Romantic legend has it that the lovely Windlestrae Hotel is named after the tall rushes which used to sway gently in the wind on the banks of the nearby Loch Leven.
Today’s Big Deal is a such a good ‘un that it won’t so much make you sway as blow you over.
In the nicest possible way, obviously.
One night stay
This Big Deal is for two people to stay overnight in a standard twin or double room on a bed and breakfast basis.
Each couple will find a bottle of house wine in their room on arrival and each guest can choose to play a round of golf on one of the resort’s two golf courses or to relax with a 30 minute spa treatment. The treatments available in the spa are a Swedish massage, facial, manicure or pedicure.
Close to Kinross and easily accessible from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dunfermline, the Windlestrae Hotel is part of The Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort in bonnie Perthshire.
Set in 5,000 acres of beautiful grounds, the resort offers two golf courses; fishing on Loch Leven; excellent cycling and bird watching; curling and a choice of five different restaurants. In fact, everything a weary wage warrior needs to chill.
Individually styled rooms
All of the rooms in the Windlestrae are generously proportioned, ensuite and individually styled. Several have extensive views over the surrounding countryside.
They all feature soft towels and quality linens, a hair dryer, telephone, television and, that 21st century necessity, free Internet access in every room.
The Windlestrae Hotel also hosts the Gravity Health & Leisure Club where guests can make the most of the fabulous 20metre swimming pool along with the latest gym and sauna facilities.
At the time of writing, The Windlestrae is rated a solid 4/5 on TripAdvisor. This is what a recent guest had to say:
‘My partner and I recently enjoyed a wonderful 2 night break at the Windlestrae hotel… We were greeted by the friendly staff who explained all of the hotel facilities and times for breakfast/dinner. Our room was very big, with a 4 piece bathroom, double bed, sofa and plenty of cupboard space. The room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel… We used the swimming pool several times throughout our stay (facilities included in price). The pool was lovely, very clean heated. Also a steam room/sauna/Jacuzzi/gym. There is a bar on site as well as Montys, an Italian restaurant.’
