Cats are the world’s best animals at relaxing. Show a cat a warm car bonnet in the sun and they’re happy.
However, unless you have fur, four paws, no job but a caring owner who is generous with the kitty scoff then scoring some relaxation ain’t so easy.
Designed to chill the most uptight of travellers, today’s Big Deal at The Beardmore Hotel near Glasgow will have buyers grinning like the cat that got the cream.
The four-star Beardmore Hotel has a waterfront location by the River Clyde.
Glasgow city centre is a short ride away but Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are just 20 minutes to the west. You could drive to Robert Burns’ Ayrshire in around the time it would take to recite Tam O’Shanter.
Big Deal guests will stay in one of the hotel’s queen bedrooms. All of the hotel’s modern bedrooms are kitted out with their very own 20 inch iMacs which give guests:
50 free television and radio stations provided by Freeview
CD/DVD player and a range of USB points so you can plug in your iPod, iPhone, MP3 player, camera or memory stick
Free Internet access
Free Skype calls
Access to Apple software including iTunes and iPhoto
As well as bottle of Prosecco in your room and a full Scottish breakfast the next morning, today’s big Deal includes a two course meal from the A La Carte Menu in the hotel’s restaurant.
Top quality local sourcing including fish landed from Scrabster and Peterhead as well as beef from the Glennifer Hills often appear on the regularly changing menus. Healthy eating choices are always available in The Beardmore’s restaurant.
The Big Deal also gives full uses of the hotel’s gym and leisure club which feature a fifteen metre heated indoor pool with views of the River Clyde; a poolside spa, steam room and a poolside waterfall shower and drench bucket.
If you want to make like a cat without a care in the world then today’s Big Deal is:
£99 for dinner, bed and breakfast, full use of the leisure facilities plus a bottle of Prosecco on arrival for two people at the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre; a 56% saving on the standard £227
