Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
Today’s Handpicked Deal on an overnight break at the four star Piersland House in Troon is the ideal way to celebrate summer.
Set in its own gardens, right in the heart of Burns country, this elegant, Victorian hotel overlooks the Royal Troon Golf Course and is a short walk from the sweeping beach at Troon.
Designed in a charming country house style, the building was originally the family home of the Johnnie Walker whisky family and many fine examples of the distiller’s art can be sampled in the hotel’s bars.
Available Sunday to Friday, this Handpicked Deal is for an overnight stay in a double or twin room with full Scottish breakfast and two course table d’hôte menu in the evening.
There are four different room types available: standard, lodge, mews (cottage) and superior.
Many of the rooms at the Piersland were refurbished at the start of 2017. While featuring a warm, contemporary decor in the rooms, the hotel has retained its considerable period charms.
All of the individually appointed bedrooms are en suite and feature a queen bed, flat screen televisions, satellite channels, free WiFi and hot drinks trays.
Some rooms have views of the golf course or the hotel’s landscaped gardens.
If you fancy treating yourself to a bit of extra luxury and upgrading to Lodge, Mews or Superior accommodation, then here are some of the comforts that you can expect:
The Lodge offers seven stylish guest rooms which are separate to the main house. On arrival, you can enjoy a complimentary bottle of water and fruit. Other facilities include queen or twin beds, Sky TV with sports channels, a tea tray, direct dial phone, free WiFi, hairdryer, iron with ironing board and laptop safe.
The Mews are set in the courtyard surrounding the main house. They create the sense of having your own special hideaway, as you will have a separate bedroom and lounge with a sofa bed for extra guests. There will also be a complimentary bottle of water and fruit on arrival. Facilities include king or twin beds, Sky TV with sports channels, a tea tray, direct dial phone, free WiFi, hairdryer, iron with ironing board and laptop safe.
Superior rooms are in the main house and offer plenty of comfort. They are stylishly and luxuriously decorated, with a complimentary bottle of water and fruit on arrival. Facilities include king or twin beds, Sky TV with sports channels, tea tray, direct dial phone, free WiFi, hairdryer, iron with ironing board and laptop safe. Some also include roll top baths.
The kitchen brigade uses local produce as much as they can. The menus change regularly but popular main courses include the chargrilled pork loin steak with Stornoway black pudding and red wine jus or the deep-fried, West Coast fish and chips.
Steak dishes are not included in this offer.
The table d’hote menu is to the value of £17.50 per person. Guests may also dine on the full menu, with a £17.50 per person allocation.
See & do around Troon
With both Royal Troon and the Ailsa course within easy reach of Piersland House, this offer would be fantastic for golfers.
It is also ideally placed for visiting the birthplace of Robert Burns; a day at Ayr Races or simply taking a walk along Troon beach.
Alternatively, settle in beside a fireplace in the hotel and relax with a good book. Perhaps with a glass of Johnnie Walker’s finest by your side.
Piersland House has charmed many a visitor and inspired lots of glowing TripAdvisor reviews. We have edited for length:
‘Very enjoyable stay… Our room was lovely – immaculately prepared and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. It was freshly cooked to order. The staff were very polite and keen to please. We would love to go back for a longer stay!’
Within easy reach of Glasgow and only a couple of hours from most of the Central Belt, this offer is very convenient for a summer break.
It would also make a fabulous gift.
Book the deal and get your summer off to a stylish start.
