Wind, snow and ice can all lead to feeling blue.
Fortunately, a stylish city break with Prosecco and a full Scottish breakfast can produce the much more enjoyable sensation of feeling Blu.

The review was long and enthusiastic. We have edited it for length:
‘Amazing, romantic, overnight stay. Booked through 5pm. Bed, breakfast & Prosecco deal… I got this as a birthday treat for my boyfriend… On arrival, check-in was quick and easy. On entering our room, there was a Happy Birthday balloon floating and also within two minutes the Prosecco arrived in an ice bucket with 2 glasses…’
‘We had amazing cocktails at the bar… At 10.30 on the dot, as we asked, breakfast was brought to our room along with a newspaper. Everything was perfect about the stay and the room was spotless. All staff very friendly! Cannot wait to be back. Thanks for a lovely stay!’
