We have consulted the tea leaves and it looks as though we are going to have a proper summer this year.
Raise a teacup to the sunshine with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco each for two from the lovely Marine Hotel in Troon.
With vouchers valid until the end of June 2016, this offer could be part of a great summer day out – ideal for spoiling a friend or relative.
Short drive from Glasgow
Handily located just 30 miles from Glasgow, The Marine Hotel 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 Sunday to Friday, from 2pm to 4pm, this offer is for two people to enjoy a magnificent afternoon tea in the Truin restaurant in The Marine Hotel.
While drinking in the views over the Clyde Firth and onto Arran, guests will be served finger sandwiches; scones with jam and cream along with tempting cakes such as strawberry meringues and chocolate délices.
Tea or coffee will, of course, be offered, as well as a glass of Prosecco each.
Taken from longer reviews of the hotel, these comments are from recent TripAdvisor contributors:
‘Afternoon tea… was scrumptious with big gnarly scones and thick clotted cream and light bruschetta style savouries rather than sandwiches.’
‘Food was exceptional, from breakfast to afternoon tea and evening meal, it was freshly prepared and piping hot.’
‘We decided to have afternoon tea when we arrived… Thoroughly enjoyed it and staff were lovely.’
As we noted, this Big Deal with The Marine Hotel in Troon would be ideal as part of a day out. Drive down the coast, perhaps go for a gentle stroll and then afternoon tea.
This offer would also make a very thoughtful gift.
