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.
Gleddoch Hotel, Spa & Golf is around a twenty minute drive from Glasgow but is so peaceful that it feels a million miles from everyday hassles.
Multi-million pound refurbishment
Sitting within 360 acres of grounds with spectacular vistas over the River Clyde, Ben Lomond and the rolling Renfrewshire hills, Gleddoch Hotel, Spa & Golf is ideal for a convenient and refreshing getaway.
The hotel had a multi-million pound refurbishment at the end of 2016/beginning of 2017 and it looks as spectacular as its surroundings.
The Big Deal is for two people to enjoy an overnight break with breakfast and a three course dinner from market menu.
Option one is for a one night stay in an Executive Super King room. Available Sunday to Thursday.
Option two is for a one night stay in an Executive Super King room with a Clyde view. Also available Sunday to Thursday.
Option three is for a one night stay in an Executive Super King room. Available for Friday or Saturday night stays.
Option four is for a one night stay in an Executive Super King room with a Clyde view. Available for Friday or Saturday night stays.
As well as a delicious Scottish or continental breakfast, guests will enjoy a three course dinner from the market menu in the spectacular VISTA restaurant.
Guests can also make full use of the fantastic spa facilities in the new Imperia Spa. The deal includes a 25% discount on pre-booked spa treatments.
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’s a fully equipped gym.
Guests should note that the steam room is currently closed for refurbishment until the end of spring.
Of course, there is always the option of booking a spa treatment (not included). The Gleddoch Imperia spa is operated by trained professional therapists, who offer guests the ultimate pampering experience using a range of wonderful Elemis and ishga products.
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 the rooms have free WiFi, LCD flatscreen TVs, USB charging points, a laptop safe and complimentary toiletries from Elemis.
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 and mushroom sauce.
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.
