One dictionary defines romance as the ‘feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love’.
Another way to put it would be the feeling of excitement and mystery associated with today’s Big Deal on an overnight break at the gorgeous Lake of Menteith Hotel.
If you want to whisk away a loved one for an romantic, autumnal adventure then today’s Big Deal at this lovely Port of Menteith hotel will fit the bill very snugly.
Part of the Trossachs National Park but just an hour from Glasgow or Edinburgh, the Lake of Menteith Hotel was originally a 19th century manse.
Since being bought and revamped in the warm and welcoming style of a classic New England waterfront hotel, it has won numerous awards including Romantic Hotel of The Year and Country Hotel of the Year.
As the name suggests, the hotel sits by the side of the Lake of Menteith. The glorious views out over the water and to the islands and mountains beyond are broken only by diving osprey and migrating wildfowl.
Valid seven days a week, this great offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in a classic double or twin at the Lake of Menteith Hotel.
A full Scottish breakfast each morning is included in the offer as are tea and scones on arrival.
All the rooms have been recently refurbished and come with Tunnocks treats, mineral water plus cafetiere coffee and tea in-room. Free access WiFi is available throughout the ground floor of the hotel.
There is a £20 per night supplement on Friday and Saturday night stays.
Finest Scottish produce
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the Big Deal. If you also opt to take lunch or dine in the hotel then you are in for a treat.
The Port Bar offers casual dining and a divine malt selection along with an open fire and large windows looking out onto the Lake.
In the Waterfront Restaurant, you’ll find the finest Scottish produce simply prepared to compliment the breathtaking views out the windows.
Popular dishes include main courses such as the glazed beef short rib with potato dauphinoise, mixed vegetables and a star anise jus.
Alternatively, tackle the moules frites – a kilo of steamed West Coast mussels with garlic, shallots, white wine, cream and chunky chips.

You don’t have to believe us. Check the many glowing TripAdvisor comments. We have edited these two for length but not meaning:
‘My wife and I booked one night at the Lake Hotel but ended staying four nights. What a lovely place to stay, so relaxed and the location was unbelievable… The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to park up the bike, hit the bar and enjoy the lake view. The meals in the restaurant matched the hotel, they were exceptional. A return visit is definite for next year.’
‘A wee hidden gem. Fantastic views across the lake from the conservatory style restaurant where the food was excellent. Relatively isolated but a short drive from Callander… The nearby ferry to the ruined abbey on a small but beautiful island was most worthwhile… The hotel is small but charming.’
Romantic break as the leaves turn colour? It’s in the bag with today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at the Lake of Menteith Hotel.
