Last night , my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary in the beautifully set , Lake of Menteith hotel.
I had been looking for a hotel which wasn’t far from home but long enough away that made us feel like we were far enough from the city and we could breathe!
I was on Twitter and someone had mentioned it when asking for suggestions not to far from Glasgow , and after viewing their site I liked where it was and it looked stunning. I contacted them via Twitter and called them the next day to make further arrangements (we booked the Lake Superior room)including dinner.
We set off a bit later in the evening once we dropped the kids and dog off, and arrived shortly before 7pm. We were shown around the hotel before going up to our room and I do believe after seeing how lovely it was, that we chose appropriately.
We loved the huge bed and the beautiful bathroom which made me quite glad that we decided to take some bubble bath with us and I’m sure you’ll agree! I also loved the small touches to the room such as the tunnocks tea cakes and tunnocks caramel logs, and coffee machine.
After relaxing for a bit before dinner which was booked for 8pm,we headed down to the lounge and had a drink before being seated. I didn’t take pictures of the food because it was packed and I felt it wasn’t appropriate to do so. We both had a starter and main, both were super delicious and so filling that we couldn’t have a desert. I should also mention that the staff kindly brought us a complimentary glass of prosecco!
We then went to the bar area where there was a roaring fire and it was a perfect way to end a very relaxing evening.
When we went up to our room, I fully utilised the lovely roll top bath tub and poured myself a bubble bath whilst my husband relaxed and watched some TV.
I could have stayed in it forever but I needed to get up and go downstairs to get some wifi to check up on the kids. I used this opportunity to order another glass of prosecco and enjoy the fire. It was then my husbands turn to enjoy the bath tub and he did stay in it for ages
This morning , we got to admire the beautiful view whilst we ate breakfast and despite the rain,I found it very atmospheric. Later on it decided to snow which made it even more beautiful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back. The staff were extremely accommodating and are a credit to the hotel.
*A special thank you to Jean for arranging our stay and generous discount.
