If you find yourself idly browsing the internet for a voodoo doll of your boss then you should probably take some time off.
Today’s Big Deal at Crieff Hydro is the perfect destination for a relaxing getaway.
Within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh, this four star Perthshire hotel is much loved by generations of Scottish holiday makers.
It’s also been a big hit at awards ceremonies. In the last few years, it has scooped the following titles: Most Hospitable Hotel; Spa of the Year and Family Hotel of the Year.
Set in a 900 acre estate, Crieff Hydro hotel started life in 1868 to offer water cures to its guests. The Lagoon Pool, saunas and splendid Victorian Spa are still a big draw for guests looking to enjoy themselves – only these days the waters are kept at a rather warmer temperature than the bracing chill which the Victorians aimed for.
Available Sunday to Thursday, option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a spacious Executive Room – double or twin. As well as a full Scottish breakfast, guests can make the most of full use of the Lagoon Pool and gym. Your choice of newspaper will be delivered to your room in the morning.
Also available Sunday to Thursday, option two is for two guests to have an overnight stay in an Executive Room but, in addition to the full Scottish breakfast, newspaper and use of the Lagoon Pool and gym, you can also enjoy £25 per person Freedom Dining.
Freedom Dining gives each guest £25 to spend on food in any of the resort’s dining options.
It could be coffee and cake in the Winter Garden, a pizza in Piccolo or a romantic evening meal in the splendour of The Meikle. With Freedom Dining, the choice is entirely yours.
Go wild in the country
Families can enjoy the relaxed surroundings, inclusive leisure pool, gym, cinema and daily entertainment programme.
If you want to explore the resort’s 900 acre estate then taking a Segway out for a scoot is one of the most enjoyable ways imaginable to see the sights.
And that’s just one of the sixty indoor and outdoor activities available.
Swimming pool, gym, spa, tennis courts, 18-hole golf course, activity centre and riding centre, the list goes on.
Open morning, noon and night, the tranquil, adults-only Victorian Spa is the most relaxing place on the Crieff Hydro resort.
Take a swim in the heated pool beneath the glorious ceiling paintings (best viewed while doing backstroke) and then soothe any aches and pains in the sauna, steam room or spa bath.
Guests are welcome to hydrate with the complimentary fruit and drinks. Or simply get laid-back on a lounger – reading, daydreaming and dozing are all fully encouraged.
This offer is a brilliant way to get away from it all and enjoy a break with a loved one or a friend. Crieff Hydro has been spoiling its guests for nearly 150 years. This is what a couple of recent visitors thought of their stays:
‘The service was first class. We went for a chill out time and that’s what we got. Did a couple of outdoor activities. Fantastic, so easy to book. Dinner to suit all tastes and the breakfast is second to none.’
‘Great couple of days away. I was taken here by my partner for a couple of days away and I’d go back in a heartbeat. Staff were really friendly, the hotel was immaculate and the decor was just beautiful. We enjoyed relaxing in the Victorian spa as well as walks around the hotel. Can only say good things about our stay here and would definitely recommend.’
Autumn is just around the corner and the Scottish countryside is about to burst into colour.
Drink it all in with today’s Big Deal on a relaxing break at Crieff Hydro.
