We always said we loved winter, but the recent snow has just been a bit too extreme. We’re now very much looking forward to some spring sunshine – Scotland at this time of year looks lush.
Plan ahead and sort a spring break with today’s Big Deal on a one or two night stay at the four star Grange Manor on the outskirts of Grangemouth.
Country house hotel
Set in landscaped gardens (ideal for an appetite-building stroll), Grange Manor has the look and feel of a country house hotel but is only a short drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow and just minutes from Falkirk, Stirling and West Lothian.
Book this Big Deal and you might just discover that a short break which can be reached by car is rather more relaxing than one which involves an airport check-in.
Originally the factor’s house for the Earl of Zetland’s estates, Grange Manor was built in the late 19th century and its elaborate cornicing and exquisite wooden staircases speak of more lavish times.
Bottle of wine in room
Option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a comfortable double or twin classic room.
A full Scottish breakfast, £20 per person dinner allocation and a large glass of the house red or white wine with dinner are included in the offer.
Option two is for two nights with a £20 per person dinner allocation and glass of wine on first night.
Both options are available seven days a week with a £20 per room supplement for Saturday nights.
While it was built more than 200 years ago, Grange Manor has plenty of modern comforts.
Stylishly decorated, the ensuite rooms are well equipped with all the amenities you would expect in a four star hotel: hot drinks facilities, hair dryer, satellite channels and, of course, free Wi-Fi.
Seasonal and local menus
The dinner spend is for Cook’s Bar and Kitchen, the converted, 19th century coach house in the grounds of Grange Manor.
The award-winning kitchen brigade are a talented crew who excel at using top quality, locally sourced ingredients to create appetising, seasonal menus.
Typical main courses might be the beer-battered haddock; the flat iron steak with skinny fries or sizzling fajitas.
Grange Manor is situated perfectly for exploring wonderful local attractions such as the dramatic Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel – the world’s first and only rotating boat lift.
The Grange Manor has attracted lots of good reviews on TripAdvisor. These excerpts are from recent reviews:
‘My husband and I had an overnight stay… lovely hotel staff very friendly and helpful. We had a room in the garden wing on ground floor as my husband has problems with stairs although hotel has a lift.
Breakfast is a help yourself buffet. The hotel is just along the road from the canal which leads to the Kelpies. Would certainly stay again.’
‘Perfect overnight in lovely hotel. Staff were absolutely brilliant… rooms are large, immaculate, comfortable and quiet. Meal in the Cook’s Bar and Kitchen was delicious. Staff and service were exceptional. Breakfast was slow (however it was a very busy Sunday morning) and again staff could not have been better and the breakfast was superb. All in all it was a terrific stay and can’t wait to return.’
Romantic gift idea
Sometimes the best things in life are right on the doorstep. Grange Manor is easy and quick to reach from anywhere in central Scotland.
Which means that this convenient Big Deal would be perfect for a romantic getaway, a refreshing break or simply a relaxing change of scene.
