“Great break”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Stayed on a DBB deal with Groupon and had a lovely 2course meal with bottle of wine and great room next to lift. Great breakfast in the morning. Very efficient and friendly staff throughout. Nice comfortable sitting area in front of television for having a relaxing drink after dinner. Will Definately come back.

Room Tip: Low floor rooms best

My husband and i booked this hotel through a groupon deal for dinner bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed. The food was lovely and we also had a bottle of wine which was included in the price. The room was very nice and comfortable with good quality toiletries provided free of charge as well as tea,.coffee facilities .Good wifi connection , flat screen T.V, nice touch with bottled water and fruit in the room on arrival . We would recommend this hotel for a short break and the town of Troon nearby is quite quaint.

We had only one little point for a moan. After we had ordered our food from the menu for our evening meal we overheard a member of staff advising the people in the next table that there was a specials board to choose from which we were not told about by our waitress and would probably have ordered the Sunday roast on offer on the board which looked yummy. well maybe next time.We would return again to this hotel.

Picked the Old Loans Inn as being only a few minutes from the golf courses which were the reason for our trip. Got a great deal online and did wonder what sort of establishment to expect at that price but came away delighted.

The rooms we had were nothing special size-wise but they were clean and cosy with an excellent shower within a nicely equipped bathroom (NB to management, Sky Sports on the TV would have been nice).

Check-in and check out very smooth but the outstanding features of this hotel are the food and the staff. Great choice of the former for evening meal (can recommend the sizzling fajitas and the lamb tangine) and a more than adequate breakfast buffet selection supplemented by a choice of good quality, freshly cooked hot dishes. The breakfast also starts serving at 7, so ideally suited for golfers needing to get on course early.

As for the staff, the service was at all times prompt, courteous, friendly & helpful. As an example, how often when you ask for ice do you get it offered in a separate glass so as not to reduce the quantity of your drink in your glass.

We will be returning to the area and will not need to consider staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Odd numbers on the ground floor back onto the road, so even numbered rooms quieter.

Like the couple on the 1st October Review, we also had a groupon overnight stay at The Old Loans Inn and it was fantastic. We had a beautiful room with all the usual facilities that I like, coffee, tea and wee biscuit, bottled water and some fruit. Also the Tub Toiletries were a nice touch, they are on my Christmas List. Staff all very helpful and friendly (particularly Dion he's quite a character). The dinner was excellent as was the breakfast. Great value with the Groupon voucher however would be willing to pay full price. We will certainly be back.

Bought a Groupon deal to stay at the Old Loans Inn- excellent value for money- food was excellent and the service was incredible. i wish i knew the ladies name who was managing the place as she had a lovely manner about her and attended to all our needs.
To top of my stay i got engaged- perfect- very romantic place!

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel, the hotel was lovely looked gorgeous and modern. However when you look closely there are a few things that could be improved upon. We stayed in the deluxe suite, we paid the same amount as another member of the party, however their room was much more spacious than ours. There was some wall paper coming off the walls, the bed was not comfortable and the room was roasting. They do provide an air con unit but we didn't want to have this on during the night as it made too much noise. The room did not have any hotel information in it, such as breakfast times etc.

We had a meal in the restaurant and it was lovely, all of our party all had a lovely meal and most went for the 3 course or 2 course option which we all felt was a great price.

I see on another review that the music was left on in the rooftop terrace, and I agree this was annoying.

I think it is a little over priced, but still a lovely hotel.

This is quite simply everything a good hotel should be - a good balance between professionalism and friendliness, where service runs efficiently (not intrusively) but the staff do everything they can to help. We stayed for two days last week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute, it was a pleasure to be spoiled by brilliant breakfasts served by friendly staff. Our room,104, was a little bit of luxury and contained everything and more that we required. We would stay here again when in area.
