There is no bigger downer on a special night out than having to dash for the last train home, wait in an endless taxi queue or worse still, beg off the vino for the evening so that you can drive.
How about this for an idea – next time you are planning a theatre trip, concert or celebration, why not treat yourself to an overnight hotel stay too?
Available until early September, today’s Big Deal for a Sunday night stay at the four-star Hallmark Hotel Glasgow certainly fits the bill. What’s more, they’ve thrown in dinner for two, a bottle of wine and a full Scottish breakfast. Read on.
Overnight stay for two
Today’s deal from the centrally located Hallmark Hotel Glasgow has everything you need for an overnight treat. This includes a comfy room, a bottle of wine on arrival and a two course dinner for two.
Plus in the morning you can enjoy a full Scottish Breakfast and the perk of a late check-out at 1pm. This leaves you with time to try out the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and recently revamped, state-of-the-art gym.
The Hallmark is just a stroll away from Anderston station and also has parking for guests. It is a ten minute walk from Glasgow Central station and twenty minutes from Queen Street station, so it’s easy enough to reach.
This deal is available for most Sunday nights until early September. Children can also stay for a supplement.
Pair it with a night out
Planning a gig, trip to the theatre or celebration? The Hallmark is only a five minute stroll from The Ferry entertainment venue on the Clyde, and is also within walking distance of various theatres and the SSE Hydro Arena.
You don’t need to have anything in particular planned though – this deal is also just a nice excuse to cosy up together and get away from it all for a night.
Comfy room with bottle of wine
You will be staying in a Classic Room at the Hallmark, which will include a flat screen TV, free WiFi, air conditioning, and hot drink making facilities.
As mentioned, a bottle of wine will be waiting for you on arrival and you will get to choose between red, white or rosé.
Dinner at The Brasserie
In the evening you can head to The Brasserie, the hotel’s smart but informal dining space, to enjoy your two course dinner for two from the set menu.
Menus can change regularly, but sample mains include the kitchen’s signature dish of slow-cooked, spiced lamb shoulder with a Moroccan style vegetable couscous, the slow cooked beef featherblade, and the veggie madras curry with lentil dhal. Classic favourites such as fish and chips, burgers and pastas are also regulars on the menus.
A recent guest at The Hallmark shared this praise on TripAdvisor:
‘Glasgow night out with my wife turned into overnight stay. Decided to stay over rather than cut our night short and heading for the last train home. Hotel staff were welcoming and friendly. Bedroom was bright and clean, king size bed was very comfortable and made for a good night’s sleep. Hotel had full spa facilities although we didn’t use them. Breakfast was full Scottish fayre and plentiful. Would stay here again on our next venture to Glasgow.’
Treat for two
If you have a special night out planned in Glasgow or just fancy a change of scene, then today’s Big Deal for a Sunday night stay at the Hallmark would be perfect.
With a bottle of wine on arrival, two course dinner, full breakfast in the morning, leisure facilities and a late check-out, this would also make an excellent birthday or anniversary treat.
