Isle of Eriska Ho­tel, Spa & Is­land

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

The Isle of Eriska, Ho­tel, Spa & Is­land is more than a 5-star ho­tel. Only 11 miles from Oban, it also has spa and restau­rant where any­one can es­cape for just an hour or an en­tire af­ter­noon.

Non-res­i­dents are wel­come to take ad­van­tage of a host of out­stand­ing ameni­ties, in­clud­ing lunch or tea at The Deck Restau­rant, a round on the nine-hole golf course and pam­per­ing at The Sta­bles Spa- all fea­tur­ing the stel­lar ser­vice for which the Isle of Eriska team is renowned, as well as ex­cel­lent value.

Eriska is un­der new own­er­ship, and fam­ily owned Cre­ation Gem of Hong Kong is com­mit­ted to pre­serv­ing the Buchanan-Smith fam­ily legacy that has made Eriska an icon of hos­pi­tal­ity for over four decades.

The Deck Restau­rant com­bines breezy, con­tem­po­rary de­sign, first class fare and breath-tak­ing views. The menu is Scot­tish and mor­eish, with favourites such as house smoked sal­mon, rib eye of aged scotch beef and beer bat­tered West Coast had­dock and chips, along­side spe­cials that change daily, with lo­cal beers and bev­er­ages to match. Head Chef Paul Leonard brings to The Deck his ethos of fresh, lo­cally sourced pro­duce that has made the Miche­lin star restau­rant in the ho­tel so renowned, show­cas­ing the best of the west coast larder, some of which comes from as close as the ho­tel’s own gar­dens. Af­ter­noon tea in The Deck is a spe­cial treat, fea­tur­ing a se­lec­tion of hand made cakes, scones, sand­wiches and teas.

For those look­ing to un­wind, treat them­selves to first class in­dul­gences or get a rou­tine beauty treat­ment, The Sta­bles Spa pro­vides a so­phis­ti­cated and re­lax­ing re­treat, where em­pha­sis is very much on re­cov­er­ing the well be­ing of the mind, body and soul. For those who don’t like to fight the crowds, The Sta­bles is the per­fect place to en­joy a tran­quil, re­laxed at­mos­phere.

High­lighted as an Edi­tor’s Choice in the Good Ho­tel Guide 2017, The Sta­bles Spa of­fers a mo­saic of ser­vices one might ex­pect from a big city fa­cil­ity, but with­out the in­tim­i­da­tion or rush. Guests can choose from a full range of mas­sages, body or fa­cial treat­ments, holis­tic ther­a­pies and a Ra­sul mud cham­ber that seats four.

And when the weather is nice, the nine-hole Eriska Links golf course pro­vides a scenic and re­lax­ing game for any level of player. Vis­i­tors are wel­come to make a day of it, and com­bine a beauty treat­ment with af­ter­noon tea or lunch, and all the na­ture that the 300-acre is­land has to of­fer, from a walk on the beach to a hike on the trails or a round of golf.

Whether you are look­ing to cel­e­brate a spe­cial oc­ca­sion with friends, en­joy a ca­sual af­ter­noon meal or need a reg­u­lar beauty treat­ment, the Isle of Eriska pro­vides a warm wel­come. Pre-book­ing is es­sen­tial and dis­counts are avail­able for lo­cal res­i­dents.
