Still stuck for the perfect Christmas present for someone special?
Fret no more.
Today’s Big Deal on a getaway break at the gorgeous Marine Hotel in Troon is just the ticket for your hard-to-buy-for nearest and dearest.
Including a three course dinner in the stylish Two Fat Ladies restaurant and use of the hotel’s leisure facilities, this offer would make a generous and thoughtful Christmas present.
Handily located at 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.
With vouchers valid until the end of March 2015, this offer is ideal for enjoying bracing winter walks along the beach followed by cosy, fireside drinks in the hotel’s Arran Bar.
Starting with a glass of Champagne on arrival, this tranquil Big Deal is for two people to indulge in a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms.
In the evening, each guest will enjoy a three course dinner from the table d’hote menu in the Two Fat Ladies restaurant at the hotel.
With a late check-out included in the deal, there will be no need to rush your full Scottish breakfast the next morning.
This offer is available seven days a week with a £20 supplement for Saturday night stays.
The proud holder of an AA rosette, The Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine Hotel opened a little over a year ago.
The latest venture from the highly successful family of Glasgow Two Fats restaurants, the new branch features a stunning maritime mural and also overlooks the Royal Troon to Arran.
The modern menu specialises in fresh and seasonal dishes. Exact choices will change regularly but typical options might be the Two Fats prawn cocktail; the smooth chicken liver parfait; the oven-baked cod fillet served with a chorizo and chickpea stew or the locally sourced blade of Scotch beef served with a chive mash, button onion and pancetta red wine jus.
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. As part of the Big Deal, you will enjoy a 25% discount on the full price.
Happy guests and diners
The Marine Hotel has attracted lots of happy comments like this one on TripAdvisor:
‘Gorgeous location. Grand old dame of a hotel… Room was comfortable and Dorothy on housekeeping was a gem… so warm and accommodating. Restaurant and bar staff were great too. The hotel is old but has been updated and there are plenty of interesting photos and newspaper articles on the walls to look at. Such a rich history and stunning view overlooking Troon clubhouse and course and out to the ocean. A really lovely weekend – next time we’ll be back for golf.’
