It’s finally December. That means we can start planning, celebrating and eating all things Christmas. And if you’re stuck for ideas when it comes to doing your Christmas shopping, keeping yourself fed on your holidays or even planning what to do on Christmas Day, The Glen Hotel might just have the answers you need.
There’s always that one person on your shopping list that you can never find the perfect gift for (it’s usually Dad, poor bloke). For them, a Glen Hotel gift card could be the perfect gift. These versatile cards can be spent on a wide array of things from the Bar-Beer-Que Apprenticeships, three-course dinners in the new Garden Grille Restaurant and bar or even just some Christmas drinks on The Deck. The ultimate stocking filler, it makes the usually hard decision of choosing a gift easy!
If you love a good BBQ but you and the grill don’t exactly see eye to eye then a Bar-Beer-Que Apprenticeship at The Glen is the perfect way to become one with your BBQ just in time for summer gatherings. These hands on master classes include a cooking demonstration by the Executive Chef so you can see how the pros do it, followed by a cook-it-yourself two-course lunch. And of course no BBQ is complete without beer, so the class includes a 2 hour Matilda Bay beer package and the opportunity to pick the brain of a Matilda Bay Beer expert! Buy a ticket for yourself or as the perfect gift for the BBQ amateur in your life (probably Dad again). Tickets are on sale now (the BBQs fit two so grab two tickets to take advantage of a multiple buy discount!) and are available here for the upcoming seafood master class on December 13th or a poultry and beef class in the New Year.
You could start your holidays off on a more relaxing note by making use of The Glen’s Deck, perfect for Christmas drinks with family and friends. The Deck Bar and Bistro does a mean chicken parmy and great weeknight specials if you blow your budget on Christmas gifts. For something a little fancier, head to The Garden Grille Restaurant where they specialise in premium mouthwatering, locally sourced steak to please every carnivorous palate (so take Dad?). Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Garden Grille offers first-class à la carte style dining (and plenty of wine) nestled within this historic hotel.
For the big day itself, you can avoid slaving over the stove all day and ditch the cleanup by heading to The Glen Hotel’s Christmas Day lunch buffet. From 12-3pm in the Garden Grille Restaurant and Silk Lined Marquee, you’ll be treated to a day of relaxation and copious amounts of delicious food. Adult tickets are $145, children aged 13-17 years are $100, 8-12 years are $45, 4-7 year olds $30 and children under 4 eat for FREE. These prices include an all you can eat hot and cold buffet lunch and a delectable 3 hour drink package including beer, wine, sparkling, orange juice and soft drinks. To keep the kiddies (big and little) happy, there will be an appearance from the big man himself – Santa! If you plan to over indulge and acquire a food baby or have a little too much liquid courage, The Glen Hotel now has the brand new 4.5-star Glen Hotel and Suites available to sleep off the day. With so much to offer for this festive season, why would you go anywhere else?
