Being a mother is one of, if not the most difficult jobs in the world. No pay, no specified hours, lots of tears, and tantrums and very little recognition. Mother’s Day though is the one day of the year where we can say “Thanks for everything, Mum”.
So this year, why not treat your mother, mum, mammy, ma, best friend, to a day of pampering, fantastic cuisine and tasty cocktails at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro.
Afternoon Tea for Two
Before you set off to explore the town of Dunblane, sit back and relax with a delicious Scottish afternoon tea. Served in our opulent Stuart Lounge, you and mum can enjoy a choice of tea, speciality coffee, or if you’re feeling in the mood, a glass of prosecco. The drinks will be followed by a delicious variety of finger sandwiches, fresh scones with clotted cream and jam, and our very own freshly baked cakes.
After tea, take a stroll into the centre of Dunblane, which is only ten minutes from the hotel. See the sights of this beautiful and historic town, including the enchanting Dunblane Cathedral. Whilst in the town stop by Sir Andy Murray’s gold post box, which was painted gold to recognise his achievements at the 2012 London Olympics.
Time for Pampering
Head back to the hotel and treat mum to some much-deserved pampering. Book one of our Pamper Packages and indulge in a range of treatments, including massages, and facials and a healthy two-course lunch in our Lounge or Cocktail Bar. As all our Pamper Packages include full use of our LivingWell Health Club facilities, why not go for a little more relaxation in the sauna and steam room.
Gourmet Cuisine in The Kailyard by Nick Nairn
Make it a full day of indulgence and book a table in our Kailyard Restaurant. Treat your mum to a delicious three-course meal created by Nick Nairn. Try traditional Scottish cuisine such as, Smoked Mackerel and Horseradish Pate for starters and mouth-watering Slow Braised Daube of Scotch Beef for mains. Finish off the meal with a tasty dessert and one of our signature cocktails.
Make a Night of it
After a day of relaxation and indulgence the last thing you and your mother will want to do is travel back home. Book an overnight stay in one of our comfortable guest rooms, or if you’re feeling frivolous splash out in one of our spacious suites, which feature complimentary house wine and chocolates.
Whatever your plans are for Mother’s Day this year, make sure it’s special. After all, our mothers make us who we are and we should be thankful to them every single day!
We offer a great selection of gift vouchers for Mother’s day including a Weekend Night Away and our Pamper Package.
