Location, location, location – just as important in choosing your short break hotel as it is when buying a home.
And locations don’t come much more jaw-dropping than that enjoyed by The Onich Hotel, a welcoming, family-run establishment on the shores of Loch Linnhe.
Situated near Glencoe, south of Fort William and north of Oban, The Onich Hotel is the perfect base for exploring the area’s scenic lochs, hidden glens and soaring mountains.
With vouchers valid from 1 December until the end of March, this offer would be ideal for a pre-Christmas break but could also be used as a Christmas gift and would come in handy for anyone keen to ski at the Glencoe or Nevis Range resorts.
This offer is for 2 people to enjoy a two night stay at The Onich Hotel with a full Scottish breakfast each morning. The offer also includes a three course dinner from the a la carte menu on one evening of your choosing.
Available seven days a week, the offer is valid for standard, loch view and superior rooms which have their own balcony. Rooms will be allocated depending on availability and on a first come, first served basis.
Equipped with hospitality trays, the bedrooms are individually decorated and furnished to a high standard. They are all en-suite and most of them look onto the loch and gardens.
The well tended gardens also offer awe-inspiring, panoramic views over Loch Linnhe to the Glencoe mountains in the east and Morvern and the Isle of Mull in the West.
We meant it when we said the location is spectacular.
Breakfast is included in the offer but the cosy bar also serves delicious meals.
Typical starters might be the traditional Cullen skink; the chicken, haggis and black pudding terrine or the duo of hot and cold smoked salmon which comes with pickled beets and home-baked bread.
Popular main courses include the burger made with beef matured for 28 days; the rump steak and the traditional fish ‘n’ chips served with pea purée.
As we noted, The Onich Hotel is superbly located for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Not for nothing is nearby Fort William known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK.
From world class mountain biking to great walking via fantastic fishing, it is all on the doorstep. With today’s Big Deal on a two night stay, there’s nothing to stop you making a long weekend of it.
Guests at The Onich Hotel have been quick to sing its praises. This is a recent review from TripAdvisor:
‘The most beautiful garden overlooking the loch. The Onich Hotel is very clean and welcoming, with attentive staff and excellent food…’
And this one was left on the hotel’s Facebook page:
‘Great little hotel in a beautiful location. Good food, stunning views but the best thing about the place is the staff who are superb.’
Whether you want a tranquil break from the frantic run up to Christmas or are looking forward to a post-festive getaway, today’s Big Deal with The Onich Hotel offers a relaxing couple of days in a beautiful location.
Did we mention that it would also make a wonderful Christmas present?
