A baronial mansion dating back to the 1840s, designed by the same architect who worked on the British Museum, Mar Hall is an impressive sight on arrival. The long sweeping drive ends at stone steps leading up to the oak door, and inside many original features -- the vaulted ceilings, original fireplaces and carved doors -- still remain.

The 200-acre estate overlooks the River Clyde and Erskine Bridge. It feels like a real escape, but Glasgow airport is only a 10 minute drive, and the city is 20 minutes away by car. For those looking to explore the wilderness, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are also only a 30-minute drive.

The property won Luxury Hotel of the Year and Golf Hotel of the Year for the region at the 2015 Scottish Hotel Awards. It has an 18-hole golf course, with views to the distant Kilpatrick Hills. For non-golfers, there is an indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna, and gym. The Decléor spa has seven treatment rooms, plus a Rasul mud chamber, and is described by Elle magazine as “incredibly peaceful”.

There are two restaurants -- Il Posto serves classic Italian dishes and Cristal Restaurant is the more formal option. The oak panelled dining room has 20-foot windows that overlook the grounds, and a vast wine list. Try the chateaubriand, the spring lamb cooked three ways, or the duo of Ayrshire pork with spring onion mash and cider sauce. After dinner, enjoy a drink in the Grand Hall’s Champagne bar or a cocktail in the lounge.

There are 53 bedrooms, which have king-size beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, bathrobes and slippers, and views of the formal gardens, golf course or the river. Upgrade to a Grand Suite for a 4-poster bed and separate living room with a fireplace. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout.
