A relaxing getaway seldom starts with a dawn body search at the airport.
You don’t have to go to the ends of the Earth to get away from it all. Sometimes, peace and relaxation can be found much closer to home.
This is especially true when your short break means a twenty minute drive rather than braving airport check-in.
Take up this Big Deal with the Gleddoch Hotel, Spa & Golf by Langbank in Renfrewshire and you can enjoy a relaxing overnight break without spending long hours on the road, or in the air.
Multi-million pound refurbishment
Based within 360 acres of grounds with spectacular vistas over the River Clyde, Ben Lomond and the rolling Renfrewshire hills, the Gleddoch Hotel at Langbank is ideal for a refreshing getaway.
The hotel had a multi-million pound refurbishment fairly recently with the deluxe Imperia Spa as a new addition.
Overnight stay for two
This Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight break in an Executive Super King room, with various options for stays up to 30th April, making it ideal for a winter or post-Christmas break. It would also make an amazing Christmas gift.
Options one and four are for a one night stay, available Sunday to Thursday.
Options two and five are for a one night stay, available Sunday to Thursday and include a three course dinner each.
Options three and six are for a one night stay, available Fridays and Saturdays and include a three course dinner each.
All options include breakfast, a glass of Prosecco each, as well as robes and slippers for access to the spa facilities.
You can upgrade to a Clyde View room for £20 per night, which is payable directly to the hotel.
As well as a delicious Scottish or continental breakfast, guests on options two, three, five and six will enjoy a three course dinner from the market menu in the spectacular VISTA restaurant.
They can also make full use of the fantastic spa facilities in the new Imperia Spa. Why not swim a few lengths in the heated indoor swimming pool or take it easy in the sauna and steam room? For those looking to burn energy, there is a fully equipped gym.
Of course, there is always the option of booking a spa treatment.
The Gleddoch Imperia spa is run by trained professional therapists, who offer guests the ultimate pampering experience using a range of Elemis and Ishga products.
Enjoy beautiful views
Newly refurbished and looking gorgeous, the Executive Super King rooms have views over the River Clyde or the resort’s manicured golf course.
Elegantly decorated, all of the rooms have free WiFi, LCD flatscreen TVs, USB charging points, a laptop safe and complimentary toiletries from Elemis.
With this offer, you will also have the option of upgrading to a Clyde View room, as previously mentioned.
Dine on local produce
The aptly named VISTA restaurant has beautiful views of the River Clyde, Ben Lomond and the hills of Renfrewshire.
The chefs like to use fresh, local produce across a range of regularly changing menus.
Sample main courses from the market menu might be the pan-seared bream with cous cous and a tomato dressing or the braised shin of beef with mushroom purée, kale, herb croquette and a bacon & mushroom sauce.
Try the Championship golf course
Widely regarded as being one of the most scenic in the West of Scotland, the 18-hole Championship layout course is one of Gleddoch’s biggest attractions.
The traditional 18-hole course is joined by a 4-hole Academy course and a 300-yard practice ground with covered bays.
The Championship course features a challenging mix of both park and heathland, with stunning views across the countryside to the Clyde Estuary.
The 6450-yard course consists of gently undulating fairways, large greens and a real variety of holes to challenge even the most proficient golfer.
