Gazing out of floor-to-ceiling windows at glittering night views of Glasgow. Slipping into a cosy robe & slippers. Helping yourself to a chilled drink from the mini-bar.
It’s safe to say that a night at the 4-star Radisson Blu is something pretty special. So why not treat a deserving person to it for Christmas?
And while you could pair this overnight stay with a concert or theatre trip, it is also just a nice excuse to get away from it all.
Luxury city centre getaway
Based on Argyle Street, right in the centre of the action, the Radisson Blu is a smart and comfortable hotel with striking contemporary architecture.
Some of its lovely features include a fine dining restaurant, cocktail bar and relaxed pub.
Today’s Big Deal is available until the end of March 2019 and comes in two varieties:
Option one is for two people to have an overnight stay in a double or twin room with a full cooked breakfast in the morning.
Option two is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay with a full Scottish breakfast and a three course dinner in the hotel’s Grahamston Restaurant.
Both options are available seven days a week with a £25 supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
Rooms at the Radisson Blu have all the amenities that you would expect from a smart city centre hotel. Standard rooms are decorated in soft shadings and boast walk-in showers as well as floor-to-ceiling windows.
You can also make the most of the flat screen TV, iPod dock, free high-speed internet access, bathrobe & slippers and mini bar.
The deal also includes full use of the state of the art gym facilities at Sports Direct Fitness, including use of the pool.
Note the leisure use is open at specific times and is unavailable on Sundays.
Guests who choose to take dinner in the hotel will enjoy three courses from the menu in the newly-refurbished Grahamston Restaurant.
The menu changes regularly but typical starters may include the haggis sausage roll with beer pickled onions, celeriac slaw & puree; Scottish scallops with cauliflower, apple & pea shoots; and the chicken and leek terrine with toasted brioche, house chutney & beetroot paint.
Mains might be the pan-seared fillet of sea bream, celeriac, truffle pomme Anna, burnt cucumber & lemon butter sauce; oven-roasted chicken breast with pancetta crisp, roast broccoli and creamed potatoes; and the potato gnocchi with wild mushroom, tarragon and garden pea fricassee, Parmesan and spinach.
Round your meal off with the likes of date pudding with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce, or the hot chocolate fondant with white chocolate ice cream.
Supplements apply to some dishes.
