An art deco hotel in landscaped parkland just 10 minutes from Inverness centre? It’s the kind of gift that Santa only gives to the very, very well-behaved.
The Macdonald Drumossie Hotel has all of the above, as well as AA Rosette dining and spectacular views over the Moray Firth.
If you are looking to give Santa a run for his money this year, then why not treat someone special to this Big Deal on a hotel escape for two?
Macdonald Drumossie Hotel dates back to the 1930s and offers traditional charms mixed with modern comforts. As the hotel is handy for Aviemore, there are also plenty of opportunities for winter sports.
Today’s Big Deal has three luxurious options and each includes a nice relaxing late check-out at 1pm.
Option one is for an overnight stay for two in an executive double room. Breakfast, a two-course set menu dinner on the first night and Prosecco on arrival will be included.
Option two is for all of the above but for two nights, with dinner on the first night.
And with option three, you can enjoy a one night stay in a four-poster suite. Breakfast, a two-course set menu dinner on the first night and Prosecco on arrival will be included. If that wasn’t enough, you will also get some lovely chocolates to accompany your fizz.
This offer is available seven days a week until 31st March 2019, excluding selected dates.
Children and pets can stay for a supplement, please arrange this directly with the hotel when booking.
