Spring is around the corner which means that it’s time to pack away the box sets, come out of hibernation and gulp down some lovely, pure, fresh air.
Today’s Big Deal is with Knock Castle Hotel and Spa in Crieff – the ideal base from which to explore Perthshire and also a relaxing venue for those who would prefer to just chill.
Enjoying panoramic views of its woodland grounds and Perthshire hills, Knock Castle Hotel and Spa is only a short drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh but its tranquil surrounds mean that it seems worlds away from the stress of the Central Belt.
Valid Monday to Thursday, this Big Deal has two options.
Option one is for an overnight B&B stay in a Lomond Room within the main building or in one of the deluxe rooms in the Castle Lodge, which sits 200 yards through the hotel’s gardens.
Designed in the same luxurious style as the main building, the Lodge’s vast rooms are ideal for a couple looking to get away from it all and the building also features a cosy lounge, dining room and a lift to all floors.
A bottle of wine in your room on arrival will help you to settle in.
A full Scottish breakfast each morning is part of the deal as are two 30 minute spa treatments. Choose between a back, neck & shoulder massage or mini facial.
Option two is for two people to enjoy an overnight break, Sunday to Thursday, in a Junior suite within the main building.
Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the Junior suites each feature a luxury lounge, separate bedroom and stylish bathrooms with spa baths.
As part of option two, a half bottle of Moet Champagne will be waiting in your room when you arrive.
Also included in option two are two 45 minute spa treatments with the choice between a back, neck & shoulder massage or mini facial.
Both options also give guests full use of the gym and pool complex which offers a wide range of facilities including sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and spa bath. The heated indoor pool has relaxing views onto the hotel’s wooded gardens.
Discount on further spa treatments
If you would like to indulge in more treatments from the spa therapists such as a deep thermal therapy, manicure or sea mud therapy wrap, then this offer entitles you to a 20% discount on the standard price.
As mentioned, a full Scottish breakfast is included in the deal and, if you also decide to take other meals at the hotel, then you can enjoy the superb views from the new Rooftop Restaurant. Freshly cooked, local produce takes pride of place on the menus.
Guests may also venture out onto the Rooftop Terrace to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink.
Knock Castle Hotel and Spa has earned lots of glowing reviews. This is what a recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Absolute heaven. We are just back from a fantastic break. From the minute we arrived at the hotel the welcome and staff were very professional. The room was perfect, set out impeccably; the views over the trees were magical. The restaurant food was on a level of its own. We were so impressed and would highly recommend this to anyone who wants an unforgettable meal. Jason the head chef/owner was very friendly and accommodating. We could not fault anything. Well done to the owners and staff who should be very proud of the service and quality all round.’
