A romantic stay at a spa hotel is probably at the top of many people’s Christmas lists.
So much so that Santa is sick of hearing about it.
So why not take the strain off Father Christmas and treat someone you love to a leisure break?
And while you are at it, you might as well pick a getaway with extra perks, such as an Executive room, glass of Prosecco on arrival and AA Rosette meal for two.
Which perfectly describes today’s Big Deal on a one or two night stay at Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa, overlooking Loch Ard.
1 or 2 night stay in a spa hotel
Nestled at the side of the loch with views towards Ben Lomond, the 4* Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa hotel enjoys a spectacular location.
Handily, this attractive hotel is right on the doorstep of Aberfoyle, making it easy to reach from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Free onsite parking makes it even more convenient.
Available until 31st March 2019, this Big Deal has two options:
Option one is for an overnight stay for two people with dinner and breakfast included, plus a glass of Prosecco each on arrival and full use of the leisure facilities.
Option two is for a two night stay for two people with dinner on the first night only, as well as breakfast, a glass of Prosecco each on arrival and full use of the leisure facilities.
Both options are available seven days a week with a £50 per night supplement for Saturday stays.
As well as a leisure club with a swimming pool, an AA Rosette restaurant and a relaxed bistro bar, the hotel also has an onsite activities centre, so there is plenty to keep guests occupied.
The 55 individually styled, fully ensuite bedrooms are comfortable, traditionally furnished and come with many period features as well as stunning views.
Room features include comfy beds, free WiFi, a large desk, a TV, tea and coffee making facilities, an iron with ironing board and a hairdryer.
AA Rosette dining
Guests on this deal will have a £25 per person dinner spend to be used on the day of check-in, choosing from the a la carte or two course set menu in the Garden Restaurant.
The restaurant sources the finest Scottish beef, lamb, pork and wild white fish for its modern Scottish menus.
Rafters Bar & Bistro offers more casual dining and a calm space to enjoy afternoon tea.
Pool with a view
The hotel’s Vital Health Club has state-of-the-art Technogym facilities, a sauna and a steam room.
What makes it extra special are the full-length windows which give swimmers in the 18-metre, heated pool an unrivalled view of the magnificent Trossachs.
Guests on the Big Deal will benefit from a 20% discount on pre-booked treatments in the hotel’s Elemis spa where the team of qualified therapists can help you to unwind.
See & do
The hotel’s onsite activity centre offers kayaking, mountain biking and abseiling.
Nearby attractions include the Go Ape high wire forest adventure, Blair Drummond Safari Park, Stirling Castle and, of course, The Trossachs National Park.
A recent guest at Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa posted this praise on TripAdvisor (edited of shortness):
‘...Rooms are very clean and nice. All staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel facilities are fab and the location of the hotel is gorgeous. The scenery is just wow. Ate in both restaurants, food was delicious. I would highly recommend coming here for a getaway… definitely be back here again.’
Perfect Christmas gift
Available until the end of March 2019, this Big Deal from Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa would make a very welcome Christmas surprise. Alternatively, you could enjoy it as a pampering pre-festive getaway.
The only question is, do you know anyone who would love to be whisked away on a special leisure break to The Trossachs?
