Dine and stay
Culinary Experience at The Balmoral, Scotland
An Edinburgh landmark for more than a century, this refined railway hotel continues to captivate our members, thanks to a stylish interior design update by Olga Polizzi, a Michelin-starred restaurant, lavish afternoon teas in the dome-ceilinged Palm Court, and a serene spa – not to mention 500 varieties of malts in world-class whisky bar, Scotch.
The Culinary Experience package (from £379 per room per night) is sure to appeal to gourmets, with daily breakfast, a beautifully prepared three-course lunch or dinner, and a bottle of wine or non-alcoholic wine (as recommended by the sommelier) included.
Diners Delight at The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath
Encompassing two townhouses in Bath’s iconic Georgian crescent, with gorgeous gardens at the back, this aptly named hotel offers one of the city’s finest locations. Eighteenth-century heritage fuses seamlessly with 21st-century facilities, including memorable dining experiences, both at the restaurant and in the garden, an excellent spa and impeccable yet unstuffy service.
For an epicurean stay, book the Diners Delight package (from £780 for two people) – you’ll be treated to a two-night weekend stay, full English breakfast daily, a seven-course tasting menu with a glass of Taittinger Champagne, and an indulgent afternoon tea for two, as well as access to The Spa & Bath House, and valet parking.
The Full Fox at Foxhill Manor
Wonderfully secluded in the 400-acre Farncombe Estate, overlooking the village of Broadway, this eight-bedroom hideaway is more glamorous manor house than hotel. Staff is happy to oblige every whim, from being driven to sister hotel Dormy House’s spa, to arranging archery and clay-pigeon shooting. When hunger strikes, simply pop into the kitchen to tell the chef what you’d like to eat, and where you’d like to eat it – the hotel is your playground.
For the most indulgent experience, book The Full Fox (from £599 per room per night), which includes all meals, drinks from the cabinet in the lounge throughout the day, a picnic hamper to share, and a personal host – as well as other little surprises throughout your stay.
Tee It Up More at Gleneagles Hotel & Golf Resort
One of Scotland’s most iconic destinations, Gleneagles continues to wow with its Scottish-baronial-meets-French-chateau exteriors and carefully updated art deco interior design. Renowned for its Jack Nicklaus-designed course, golf is high on many of our members’ agenda, with cycling, fishing, horse riding, tennis, falconry and shooting not far behind. Back inside, the two-Michelin-starred Andrew Fairlie restaurant and expansive spa leave nothing to be desired.
Golfers booking Gleneagles’ Tee It Up More overnight package can enjoy an overnight stay and two rounds of golf on any of the estate’s three championship courses at a special rate.
Time to Golf at Bovey Castle, Dartmoor
First opened as a hotel and golf resort by the Great Western Railway in 1930, Bovey Castle enjoys a scenic setting on 275-acre grounds within Devon’s Dartmoor National Park. The award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed by JF Abercromby, is a major draw for our members, but there’s also plenty to do for non-golfers, from archery and clay-pigeon shooting to tennis and croquet. The glamorous Great Western Restaurant and expansive spa, meanwhile, take care of all your culinary and well-being needs.
