We have consulted the tea leaves and it looks as though the snow will be away by summer this year.
Raise a teacup to the potential sunshine with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two from the lovely Marine Hotel in Troon.
With purchases valid until the end of June 2019, this offer could be part of a great spring or summer day out – ideal for spoiling a friend or relative.
Victorian chic afternoon tea
Available seven days a week from noon to 3pm, this Big Deal is for two people to have a magnificent afternoon tea in the Truin restaurant in The Marine Hotel.
While taking 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. It all sounds so decadent.
What’s more, guests have the chance to access the leisure facilities, should you want to add a bit of chill out time to your visit.
Iconic seafront hotel
The four star Marine Hotel is a landmark building on the Ayrshire coast and is only a 30 minute drive from Glasgow and 90 minutes from Edinburgh.
The hotel dates back to the late 19th century and overlooks the Firth of Clyde and the Royal Troon Cours.
Once you’ve finished tucking into your afternoon tea, you could take a jaunt to explore Troon, Burns Country and the rest of the Ayrshire coast.
Taken from longer reviews, here are what some TripAdvisor contributors had to say about The Marine Hotel afternoon tea:
‘Afternoon tea… was scrumptious with big gnarly scones and thick clotted cream.’
‘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.’
Pressie for a tea lover
As we noted, this Big Deal with The Marine Hotel in Troon would be ideal for a gift.
It’s also perfect if you want to plan a day out. Drive down the coast, perhaps go for a gentle stroll and then afternoon tea?
