A LUXURIOUS Perthshire hotel has had a mini facelift and is all set for the year ahead.

Award-winning Knock Castle Hotel & Spa is the perfect place for some traditional Scottish hospitality in impressive period surrounds.

Renowned for his exquisite cuisine and flamboyant food presentation, the hotel’s head chef, Jason Henderson, a finalist in the 2017 Prestige Hotel Awards’ Head Chef category, is also looking forward to adding a touch of drama to the menus this spring.

He said: "Delicious food is a given here at Knock Castle, but we’re always striving to improve and push ourselves to constantly impress our guests in every area of the hotel not just the restaurant.

"We’ve revamped the ground floor and guests can enjoy some lovely new décor, which has enhanced the hotel’s atmospheric appearance. I’m also planning some surprises on the menu to compliment the existing range of dishes already on offer."

Another new addition is a fabulous range of luxury beauty products, which will be available in the hotel’s spa.

The hotel will now stock Pinks Boutique, a professional, natural and organic range of products, perfect for spa guests who enjoy being pampered with the some of the best potions and lotions on the market. Guests can take advantage of a full range of treatments on offer either on a day visit or as a resident in the hotel.

Conveniently located on the edge of the historic market town of Crieff, Knock Castle Hotel is little more than an hour from Glasgow or Edinburgh and offers panoramic views of beautiful woodland and the Perthshire hills. It really is an ideal spot to just unwind and soak up the ambience of this relaxing, Scottish hideaway.

2016 was hugely successful year for the hotel and Jason and his team look forward to welcoming guests, old and new through the doors in 2017.
