Elvis Presley only set foot on British soil once when his army transport plane stopped in Prestwick.
His experience of Ayrshire may have been brief but many reckon that it inspired him to record You’re the Reason I’m Living, Wonderful World and, slightly more controversially, I Don’t Care if the Sun Don’t Shine.
Give yourself a reason to sing by snapping up today’s Big Deal on an overnight stay at the welcoming Carlton Hotel, Prestwick.
Deep in Burns country, The Carlton Hotel sits in landscaped gardens and offers traditional Scottish hospitality in a contemporary setting.
This stylish hotel would make the ideal base for a golfing holiday; a trip to the races or an exploration of Ayrshire attractions such as Culzean Castle or Burns’ cottage.
The hotel is also close to Prestwick International Airport and only a 45 minute drive from Glasgow Airport – perfect if you are jetting off on your hols.
The Carlton Hotel also offers the convenience of ample on-site parking.
Two course dinner
Available Sunday to Friday, the offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a classic double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a two course dinner from the DB&B inclusive menu.
Supplements will apply to some dishes.
There is a £20 supplement per room for Friday night stays, payable to the hotel directly.
The rooms at The Carlton Hotel make good use of bold colour, rich textures and contemporary artwork.
Ensuite bathrooms, free WiFi, a drinks tray and hairdryer are all standard.
Logans Bar and Restaurant in the hotel has a sophisticated new look and, as always, the kitchen brigade takes great pride in delivering the finest local produce, complemented by a carefully selected wine list.
The menus change regularly but popular starters include the traditional prawn cocktail; haggis & black pudding nachos with cheddar cheese and peppercorn sauce; and mushroom & leek gratin with gruyere cheese and toasted brioche.
There’s plenty of choice for main courses, such as the coriander, ginger & lime chicken breast with basmati rice, mango and coconut curry cream; classic steak & sausage pie; broccoli & sun-blush tomato tagliatelle with tomato & basil sauce and toasted garlic ciabatta bread; and garlic & honey salmon fillet with sweet potato fries.
