The debate rages on about the best recipe for the perfect pancakes.
However, the recipe for the perfect spa day is widely agreed upon.
Ingredients should include one or two soothing treatments, a delicious two-course lunch, and a modern spa with a heated pool, jacuzzi, sauna steam room and spa pool.
It is safe to say today’s Big Deal for a spa day at Stirling Highland Hotel follows this recipe perfectly.

Many people have visited Stirling Highland Hotel’s spa and left rave feedback on the Facebook page. Here are a couple of recent reviews, edited for shortness:
‘Was here today with my friend for a spa day and afternoon tea. Absolutely brilliant service from all the staff members we met, made us feel welcome from start to finish. Hotel itself has lots of character and will definitely be visiting again. Thanks for a fantastic chilled day out.’
‘I came for a spa day and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Each member of staff I came in contact with were friendly and attentive… the pool area was spotless with a towel, robe and slippers provided free of charge. I choose 1 × 55 minute vitamin facial and 1 × 25 minute shoulder, back and neck massage – amazing! My therapist Caitlin was friendly, informative, professional and a credit to your spa. The best treatments I have had in a few years. I have recommended my friend who is visiting on Monday. I will most definitely be returning soon! Thank you.’
If you really want to spoil someone rotten, then a serene spa day with treatments and a two course lunch is the obvious choice.
And of course, a this pamper session can be for two people, you could treat your other half to it and then keep your fingers crossed that they’ll take you along with them.
