Philosophers have often pondered the path to happiness.
Happily, we can tell you that it’s just off the A77 via today’s Big Deal with The Marine Hotel Troon and its recently opened Two Fat Ladies restaurant.
If you could use a little rest and relaxation, accompanied by some fantastic food, then this Big Deal means that nirvana is just a couple of clicks away.
Handily located at just 30 miles from Glasgow, The Marine Hotel, Troon has long been one of the gems of the Ayrshire coast. It’s particularly popular with golfers who love the fact that it overlooks the 18th hole of the Royal Troon course.
Purpose built in 1894, the hotel was given 4 AA stars in 1912 and has maintained that rating ever since – the only Scottish hotel to have done so.
Available seven days a week, option one of this tranquil Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, each guest will enjoy a three course dinner from the table d’hote menu in the Two Fat Ladies restaurant at the hotel.
Option two, also available seven days a week, is for two people to stay two nights in a double or twin room with breakfast each morning and a three course table d’hote dinner in the restaurant on the first night.
Friday night stays will be charged a £20 supplement, and Saturday night stays charged a £30 supplement.
2 AA Rosettes
The proud holder of 2 AA rosettes, The Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine Hotel opened in November. The latest venture from the highly successful family of Glasgow Two Fats restaurants, the new branch features a stunning maritime mural and also overlooks the Royal Troon to Arran.
The modern menu specialises in fresh and seasonal dishes. Exact choices will change regularly but typical options might be the game terrine with a plum and ginger chutney or the fillet of sea bream served with a chorizo and Borlotti bean stew.
Finally, the Deal includes full use of the spa’s soothing facilities including the gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and solarium. Of course, you can also book in to the hotel’s Beauty Rooms to indulge in a spa treatment. Spa treatments are in addition to the offer and will be charged accordingly.
Guests have been quick to say how much they like having the Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine Hotel. This is a recent review from TripAdvisor:
‘Should be a five star hotel… Concierge was very helpful and friendly on arrival. Sea view room which was very comfortable and modern. Leisure centre was fantastic. Two Fat Ladies restaurant was just as good as their Glasgow restaurants. Overall a very competitive price for a high quality. I will be recommending this hotel to friends and colleagues.’
A great meal, a lovely hotel and a golf course on the doorstep. If that sounds like paradise then grab today’s Big Deal and pencil in some much deserved down time.
