Some places just get it right and the Parklands Hotel in Perth is one of them.
In the last year, the Parklands Hotel has been named The Bistro of the Year; Perth Hotel of the Year and Boutique Hotel of the Year while Executive Chef Graeme Pallister has been given two AA Rosettes for his cooking.
And we’re just scratching the surface. Their TripAdvisor ratings are just as juicy.
If you want to see why The Parklands Hotel needs an extension just for its trophies then today’s Big Deal with the Perth hotel is a great introduction.
Available seven days a week, this generous offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a king double room at the Parklands Hotel. There will be a chilled bottle of Prosecco waiting in your room to welcome you.
As well as a full Perthshire breakfast, the offer includes £45 credit per couple to spend in either 63@Parklands, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, or in No.1 The Bank Bistro, the hotel’s more informal venue.
There is a £40 supplement for Saturday night stays.
Parklands Hotel has fifteen individually styled rooms. All of the bedrooms are spacious and have en-suite facilities, cable television, DVDs and iPod docks, hair dryer plus tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms are also equipped with WiFi.
Guests can upgrade to a superior room with views over the garden and park for a supplementary charge of £20 per night, payable directly to hotel.
Executive Chef Graeme Pallister is a talented man with a passion for local Scottish produce and especially that of Perthshire – the hotel’s Perthshire breakfast shows just how good the area’s artisan food producers really are.
As part of this offer, guests will have £45 credit per couple to spend in either of the hotel’s restaurants. An informal, casual venue, No.1 the Bank Bistro serves dishes like the risotto of Shetland mussels and cockles or the roast Gartmorn farm chicken breast with red wine braised leg, peas à la francaise and thyme roast potatoes.
The light and spacious 63@Parklands shows the kitchen’s skills in their best light. It offers a fixed menu of two starters, intermediate, two mains, cheese and two desserts. The menu changes depending what’s in season but typical starters might be the cured salmon with tempura oyster and soya vinaigrette or the duck liver and pistachio parfait served with a chicory walnut and Roquefort salad.
The main courses might be haunch of Perthshire venison served with dauphinois potatoes, green lentils, girolles and red currant jus while dessert could be along the lines of the brioche and butter pudding which is served with glazed banana & caramel sauce anglaise.
As we pointed out, The Parklands Hotel has no shortage of awards. The public have just been pleased. This is what one TripAdvisor review had to say:
‘Fabulous food. Good location for the centre of Perth and only twenty minutes from Gleneagles. Friendly, helpful staff and clean room. Lovely evening meals – we couldn’t wait for 7pm to come around in order to head for the Bistro! Breakfast was delicious and served hot, especially enjoyed the salmon with creamed eggs. Would stay again if visiting the area.’
Today’s deal would make a great autumn break. If there is someone in your life who would appreciate a gourmet getaway then grab today’s offer and whisk them away.
