We don’t have Burns’s way with words but we understand why he waxed lyrical about his Ayrshire home.
A spectacular coast; fascinating castles; great golf courses and, let’s not forget, Ayr Racecourse – if he came back today, we think he would find lots to entertain himself.
Discover it all with 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.
With vouchers valid until the end of April 2015, this offer is ideal for enjoying bracing winter walks along the beach followed by cosy, fireside drinks in the hotel’s Arran Bar.
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’hote menu in the Two Fat Ladies restaurant at the hotel. A bottle of house wine to accompany your meal is included in the offer.
With a late check-out to 1pm, there will be no need to rush your full Scottish breakfast the next morning.
There is a £20 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 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 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 spa’s soothing 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. As part of the Big Deal, you will enjoy a 25% discount on the full price.
Happy guests and diners
The Marine Hotel has attracted lots of happy comments on Tripadvisor. At the time of writing, these were the most recent:
‘Have stayed here on several occasions over the years and it gets better each time. Excellent customer service – staff are fantastic. Had a lovely facial and massage and the food in the restaurant is fab. Would highly recommend this hotel.’
‘Beautiful time. We went to this hotel on 23rd January as a gift from our son… He had already been there and was very impressed. All I can say is what he told us was very true and we certainly were not disappointed. A lovely experience and would advise anyone to try it.’
We have forgotten Christmas and the Easter break seems a long way off.
Bridge that relaxation gap with today’s Big Deal at The Marine Hotel on the gorgeous Ayrshire coast.
