What to do for Mother’s Day in 2018

The age old tradition of honouring your mum can be traced all the way back to the ancient Greeks.

While other dates have become commercialised, Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday has remained a key not-to-be-missed date in the calendar – up there with birthdays and anniversaries.

So if you are looking for Mother’s Day activities or things to do on Mother’s Day, an  Apex Hotel is the ideal place to draw inspiration for your mother’s day gift ideas.

Here’s our run-down of our Perfect Mother’s Day activity ideas

A relaxing spa treatment

It’s a bit of cliché but for many it’ll be true – a luxurious spa day could be just what the special person in your life needs, and the wonderful Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa in Dundee has everything from massages and facials to holistic therapies.

Is there any better way to see this stunning UNESCO world heritage city than an exhilarating hot air balloon flight over the city?

After the excitement of that, a visit to the Thermae Bath Spa – which uses Britain’s only natural thermal waters – will help you both chill out before treating yourself to a glass of fizz back at the hotel.
