“Spa afternoon tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Just back from a groupon spa and champagne afternoon tea deal at the Marine Hotel. The hot stones massage and manicure were fab and staff were great. Felt a bit let down when went for afternoon tea to be told there was a mistake with the groupon deal which we should have been notified about which meant we were only entitled to a cream tea. We expressed our disappointment at this to no avail although to be fair the staff were very apologetic. After conceding we would have the cream tea the manager appeared to say they would give us the full afternoon tea after all as we had not been notified. The afternoon tea was lovely and the staff very attentive. Full marks to the Marine for excellent customer service!

We enjoyed our two night DB&B stay - the hotel was very comfortable and the staff friendly. The dinner and breakfast were tasty. The hotel room was very comfortable. The view from the hotel room was excellent - the Golf Course and Arran!

We recently stayed at the Marine Hotel in Troon as part of our trip around Scotland. The hotel and its surrounds are excellent. The service at the hotel from check in to check out was superb. All the staff were professional, friendly and attentive to our every need. They went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. The quality and comfort of our guest room as well as all of the lounge and bare areas were excellent. The leisure facilities were top class and gave our stay that little bit extra. We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the selection and range of food was very high. The wine list although small provide some very satisfying choices to match our food. We had a wonderful and I would recommend the Marine Hotel highly.

Room Tip: Try to book a room that overlooks Royal Troon Golf Course.

A great location on the beach and golf course. It's a short hike to beach as the golf course runs b/t hotel and beach so you have to walk down a few blocks to public beach access or drive and park in the parking area there. Short trips to tourist areas near Troon, Glasgow, Ayr. Check in was smooth. Signed us up for a table for dinner right away. Room was small but big enough for 2. Bed was very uncomfortable but hotel was booked so we couldn't switch rooms. Bathroom was nice and clean, removable shower head, closeup mirror attached to wall a nice extra. They only give you one bath towel so ask for extras. Plenty of hot water too! Was very chilly so we used the radiator heat, however the floor curtains draped over it when we closed them at night. Had to pile them on window so heat wasn't trapped behind curtain! They need to be shortened permanently. Loved the tea service with hot pot built into desk. Cookies, tea, sugar, creamer restocked daily ... a plus for a tea-drinker like me :) Room had a pants press on wall as well as iron. Big TV, but no clock radio. No outlets next to the bed, so have to charge cell phones at the desk. Internet was fast but have to sign in again every two hours or so. Cell phone signal was fair but can carry text messages easily. Restaurant was overpriced for the amount of food served, but the food was very, very good. Short drive into Troon for fish n chips and other restaurants and pubs. Lounge area very comfortable and spacious. Didn't use the pool, but looked nice. Look for conceirge Walter. He's fabulous and oh so friendly and knowledgable. Property looks like a castle with winding hall ways to the rooms. Chance are good you'll NOT have a view b/c of this, so specifically ask for a room with golf course or beach view if that's important to you. Long deck with plenty of seating at front of property overlooking beach. Great for sunsets as faces directly west.

Room Tip: If a view is important, ASK for a room with one because most have views of roof or alleys due to the...

Having received a voucher for champagne afternoon tea we decided to book for an overnight to have more time to enjoy the spa/leisure facilities available.

We requested that our tea be put back half an hour which they did without any problems. They catered well for our dietary needs and staff were also helpful when asked for a box/bag to take away the cakes we couldn't quite finish at the time.

The staff in the beauty/spa facilities were very accommodating. We enquired about the early bird offer which was available from 9.00am - 1.00pm. The staff advised that they had no appointments left during these times but were happy to offer us treatments for the early bird rate later in the day.

The only area which perhaps let them down slightly was the service in the lounge/bar area but this was only a minor issue and did not detract from the overall experience.

We were staying for the weekend and we had a meal booked for Friday and Saturday evening,the service on the Friday was terrible,despite complaints the poor service continued. We were in a party of twenty seven and there seemed to be a problem with not having the wines available that we chose from the wine list which was also dissapointing. I could not underfstand why this hotel had not ensured that they had the staff available or the wine available as they knew such a large party was coming to stay well in advance.

On the Sunday morning I was told another member of our group that they had to wait over 1 hour 30 minutes for a cooked breakfast,eventually they got up and walked out,what is going on here?

We ordered breakfast in our room on Saturday morning,this was also very late arriving,this is not acceptable when you have plans to go out at a specific time. The fried eggs were all dried up.

My husband and I were not looking forward to a second night of dining at the hotel but as our hosts had made sure the hotel knew they had let us down the night before there appeared to be a massive improvement in the level of service. This change in service made all the difference to the Saturday night meal.

The standard in the room was not all it could have been,there were cracks in the floor tiles(room 27) and they were coming loose. There were lots of dirty hand prints on the back of the bathroom door which was a little off putting. No pen or paper or shoe cleaning kit (as mentioned in the information in the room. These may be only small things but when you add it to the whole experience it left me with a feeling of a lack of care.

The weekend as a whole was a great success but this was mainly due to our kind hosts and our day at Ayr races etc. This hotle needs to buck its ideas up.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room with a view,we got the view of a small yard and bins etc. Another member of ou...
