The Roman poet Ovid once said, ‘Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop’.
Sow the seeds of relaxation by taking today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay with dinner at the four star Marine Hotel in Troon.
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.
At the last count, there were some 39 other golf courses nearby.
If golf isn’t your game then this offer is ideal for enjoying sunny walks along the beach followed by cosy drinks in the hotel’s Arran Bar.
Available seven nights a week, this tranquil Big Deal is for two people to indulge in a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms.
In the evening, each guest will enjoy a three course dinner from the table d’hôte menu, accompanied with a glass of Champagne in the Two Fat Ladies restaurant at the hotel.
There is a £30 per night supplement for Saturday night stays.
The proud holder of an AA rosette, The Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine Hotel is the latest venture from the highly successful family of Glasgow Two Fats restaurants.
The latest 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 Two Fats prawn cocktail; the smooth chicken liver parfait; the oven-baked cod fillet served with a chorizo and chickpea stew or the locally sourced blade of Scotch beef served with a chive mash, button onion and pancetta red wine jus.
Finally, the deal includes full use of the leisure facilities including the gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
Of course, you can also book in to the hotel’s Beauty Rooms to indulge in a spa treatment – guests will receive 20% discount from full priced spa treatments.
Happy guests and diners
The Marine Hotel has attracted lots of happy comments on Tripadvisor. These were left recently:
‘Lovely jaunt away with friends. Just back from a fantastic stay here, could not fault anything. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Had a lovely meal in the Two Fat Ladies, a soothing massage and great afternoon in the spa. All in all a magical trip and me and my friends were lucky enough to get a room upgrade to wonderful sea views. Thanks so much and keep up the good work.’
‘We have just enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend in Troon. The staff were lovely, location was great. We had a sea view and we also overlooked the Royal Troon golf course. We didn’t use the spa facilities as the weather was so lovely we wanted to be outside but it appeared to be very busy so I imagine it must be good! We hope to go back again soon.’
Seaside walks, fine food, plenty of opportunity for golf – if that sounds like the sort of bounty that you would like to harvest then grab today’s Big Deal at The Marine Hotel on the gorgeous Ayrshire coast.
