After a summer in which Andrew Murray took Olympic gold and scored his first Grand Slam, it feels like anything is possible – even a Nessie sighting.
Snap up today’s Big Deal with the Glen Mhor Hotel on the banks of the River Ness and, as well as enjoying a romantic two night mini-break, you never know, you might just spot the area’s most popular legend.
Sitting on the tree-lined banks of the River Ness, in the shadow of Inverness Castle, the Glen Mhor is a cosy hotel which has been showing guests the true meaning of Scottish hospitality since 1920.
This relaxing offer is for two people to stay two consecutive nights in a double or twin Classic room. A full Scottish breakfast on both mornings is part of the deal.
Classic guestrooms feature complimentary WiFi, digital TV channels; a hot drinks tray and room service.
A delicious, full Scottish breakfast will start your day with a smile. If you want somewhere local to enjoy other meals then Nico’s Bistro, part of the hotel, would make a rewarding choice for lunch or dinner.
Freshly made traditional dishes using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients are the name of the game.
Think starters such as Shetland oysters on crushed ice or Rannoch smoked duck salad. Main courses on the regularly changing menu might include pan-seared Moray Firth squid with chorizo and linguini or the Ardgay venison burger topped with Dunlop smoked cheese.
The hotel’s Nicky Tams bar is a lively spot for a drink and, if you’re a whisky lover, then you’ll think that you have popped your clogs and woken up in dram paradise.
A live jazz band and regular traditional folk sessions help the evenings go with a swing.
See and do
Inverness and the surrounding area also have much to offer. The hotel is ideally placed for visiting the Grampians; the nearby castle and whisky trails as well as being handy for the Cairngorms National Park.
World class golf courses at Royal Dornoch and Brora will please the golfers and, of course, you can always visit Loch Ness and try to catch a glimpse of its legendary inhabitant.
The Glen Mhor Hotel has won a number of enthusiastic write-ups on review sites. This recent one on Late Rooms is a succinct summary:
‘Very good. We had a very nice overnight stay in this hotel – very big room with a large en-suite and windows overlooking the River Ness which was lovely. Friendly & helpful staff and a good breakfast. What more to say?’
Another guest was singing the praises of Nico’s on TripAdvisor:
‘Fantastic. Me and my partner had dinner at Nico’s after Googling seafood restaurants. We ordered the Rockpool which was beautiful. The lobster and scallops delicious! The staff were very friendly and helpful and went out their way to make sure we were happy…’
