As the first hints of spring begin to glint over the horizon (we swear, it’s happening), thoughts turn to the allure of the coast. The breeze may be bracing, but a coastal mini-break is the ideal way to blow away those winter cobwebs.
Why rough it though, when you can take advantage of today’s Big Deal overnight stay in the four star Marine Hotel in Troon? With dinner in the acclaimed hotel restaurant included, the offer is the perfect combination of sea air and fine living.
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 Sunday to Friday, this tranquil Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms. A glass of Champagne on arrival will get your break off to a sparkling start.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, each guest will enjoy a three course dinner from the table d’hôte menu in Truin Restaurant at the hotel.
The offer also includes full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities.
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.
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.
