Elegant country house
An Edwardian mansion, tucked away in its own 240 acre woodland estate, Mar Hall is one of the most elegant country house hotels in Scotland.
A privately owned residence, it overlooks the River Clyde and enjoys views towards the Kilpatrick Hills.
Five star hotel
A five star golf and spa resort, Mar Hall is just twenty minutes from Glasgow but feels a million miles from the rush of the city.
Afternoon tea for two
Afternoon tea is served in the 118 feet long Grand Hall, the heart of Mar Hall. Furnished with French style Louis XIV chairs and low coffee tables, it is hung with fine paintings and splendid tapestries.
The twenty feet high windows allow ample natural light as well as views of the formal gardens including a large and beautiful Lebanese Cedar.
The Grand Hall has been described as breath-taking but not so much as to stop guests enjoying a good catch-up over the tea and scones.
Available 1pm-4pm, Sunday to Thursday, option one of this Big Deal is for a traditional afternoon tea for two.
Option two is as option one but also features a chilled glass of Moet and Chandon Champagne for each guest.
Afternoon tea at Mar Hall is a luxurious affair.
It consists of a mouth-watering array of delicious sandwiches, delicate pastries, cakes and scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve.
Guests can choose from a wide range of distinct blends of tea, imported by specialist tea suppliers from around the world.
