No-one ever looks back and fondly remembers the day they got to the bottom of the in-tray.
Make some real memories with today’s Big Deal on a one or two night break on the gorgeous Ayrshire coast.
Handily located at just 30 miles from Glasgow, the Marine Hotel, Troon has long been one of the gems of the Ayrshire coast.
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.
It’s particularly popular with golfers who love the fact that its Truin Restaurant overlooks the 18th hole of the Royal Troon course.
At the last count, there were some 39 other golf courses nearby.
Available seven days a week, this tranquil Big Deal comes in two versions.
Option one is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms.
Each guest will also enjoy a three course dinner from the table d’hôte menu in Truin Restaurant at the hotel, with a glass of bubbly each.
Option two is for a two night stay and, on the first night, a three course dinner from the table d’hôte menu in Truin Restaurant with a glass of bubbly each.
Both options include full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities and a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
And, with a late check-out to noon, you won’t have to rush your breakfast.
There is a £30 supplement for Saturday night stays.
A three course dinner from the regularly changing table d’hôte menu in Truin Restaurant is included in the offer.
Devoted to keeping things fresh and locally sourced, the kitchen serves seasonally inspired menus using local ingredients.
As well as overlooking the Royal Troon, the dining room also has views to Arran – perfect for a clear, moonlit winter’s night.
As we mentioned, the deal includes full use of the spa’s soothing facilities including the gym, heated indoor 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.
See and do
There is no shortage of fun things to do in the area. There are numerous golf courses within easy reach not to mention the Burns National Heritage Park and Culzean Castle.
Ayr Racecourse is another popular destination.
The Marine Hotel in Troon has long been a hit with customers. Edited for length, this is what recent visitors had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Great location and great service. This hotel is located on the eighteenth fairway of Royal Troon and I was fortunate enough to have a fairway (and ocean) view… Great staff, nice pub, and large rooms. While the rooms are probably due for a renovation sometime soon, I’d stay there again in a heartbeat…’
‘I’ve stayed at the Marine a few times and it is one of my favourites. I agree with other reviewers that the furniture and soft furnishings could do with an update but the hotel is spotless and very comfortable. If you are a golfer the setting is amazing, if you are a non-golfer it’s still pretty spectacular… We enjoyed afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast, all of which were excellent. The pool area is also excellent. The Marine’s biggest draw however, is the staff. They are wonderful…’
‘My wife and I visited the hotel this weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary… From the moment we arrived we were treated brilliantly by the helpful and courteous staff… The meal we had at the hotel restaurant was to die for… Again, the staff serving in the restaurant were so pleasant and helpful. We’ve completely fallen in love with the Marine and it will be a place we continue to visit in the future…’
