Just returned from a 2 night break at the Marine,very impressed by everything and would highly recommend it. The initial greeting at reception was friendly and efficient, the room was large enough , comfy bed, clean well equipped bathroom and good wardrobe/ storage space. Pleasant view overlooking the Royal Troon Golf course and out to sea. The bedroom window was an old fashioned "sash" type and rattled in the gale force winds we had over the weekend ( being a sash window was also a bit draughty--but for me added to the charm of teh old place !) .
The hotel is a nice blend of the old and the new , and as Im not a lover of modern sterile places--I found it charming. Bar and restauarant staff were equally pleasant and the overall service level was high. Was a great place to relax and feel "at home"---had a real "scottish" feel about it, warm and friendly--and no nonsense!! The leisure area was adequate, nice pool ( if a bit small ) sauna ,steam room and jacuzzi--with clean changing areas. (the sauna and steam room were both below temp on Sunday?? --but the leisure facilities seems a common problem at Puma hotels??--see Redworth Hall review ??)
Not enough to spoil a really nice enjoyable stay--even the lousy weather coudnt spoil it! Troon itself is nice, clean and again very friendly with lots of good cafes and restaurants. Wasnt teh weather for golf (not for me anyway?) but didnt deter everyone and is great to be able to wander along next to the great course as a spectator!!
All in all a very pleasant stay and the hotel is up there with the best .
