Spa treatment or afternoon tea? Spa treatment or afternoon tea? Spa treatment or..?
Eek! Here at 5pm, our brains are sparking trying to decide which one would make the best Christmas gift.
Thankfully, The Popinjay Hotel & Spa is offering both in one with today’s Big Deal for an aromatherapy massage and afternoon tea for two, plus optional Prosecco as well.
Thank you, Popinjay Hotel, for rescuing us from this unsolvable dilemma…
Spa hotel in the Clyde Valley
The Popinjay Hotel & Spa is based in the little country village of Rosebank, only a short stroll from the banks of the Clyde. It is easy to reach as is around a 25-minute drive from Glasgow and less than an hour from Edinburgh.
Built in 1882, the hotel has an olde worlde Tudor-style design, perfect for creating the feeling that you’ve escaped everyday life for the day.
With this Big Deal, two people can enjoy a soothing aromatherapy massage each followed by afternoon tea.
And if you want to add a bit of sparkle to the proceedings, you can add on a nice cold glass of Prosecco each as well.
Use of leisure facilities is also included.
This offer is available from 1pm to 5pm, seven days a week until 31st March 2019 (excluding selected dates). You can also buy multiples.
Aromatherapy massage and afternoon tea
Your back, neck and shoulders aromatherapy massage will last around an thirty minutes each and take place in either a dual treatment room or private room each, depending on availability.
After your therapist had consulted with you on your needs, your body will be covered in carefully selected, soothing oils to leave you feeling thoroughly relaxed. The massage will last around 30 minutes.
Afterwards, you can settle down to afternoon tea for two in the restaurant, which will include a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones along with a freshly brewed pot of tea or coffee, plus a glass of Prosecco each with option two.
Vegetarian options are available. If you’d like gluten/wheat-free or vegan options, please request this directly with the hotel when booking.
Make a day of it
This combined spa session and afternoon tea offers everything needed for a perfect day. But if you want to fit in some sightseeing as well, then the New Lanark World Heritage Site is nearby.
Other attractions include Craignethan Castle, Chatelherault Country Park and the Biggar & Upper Clydesdale Museum.
A recent guest at The Popinjay posted this review on the hotel’s Facebook page:
‘Went to the popinjay for a 2 night stay with my sister, was absolutely fantastic, the place had so much charm about it! Reception and restaurant staff were fantastic and helped out with everything we needed. A special thanks to Megan the beauty therapist for our treatments in the spa, was so relaxing and very professional, will definitely be back even if it’s just for food, was amazing and very decent price for great standards, keep up the good work.’
Luxurious Christmas gift
Today’s Big Deal is the perfect present for luxury lovers as it includes both a spa treatment and afternoon tea.
That said, you could just snatch it up for yourself and enjoy a pampering day in a historic hotel surrounded by Clyde Valley scenery.
