Barcelo Troon Marine Hotel
Crosbie Rd, Troon, KA10 6HE, United Kingdom
Can you say golf?
This is a wonderful hotel. The staff was great! The rooms were perfect. I would definately tell someone to stay here if they were in Troon.
Unique Quality: Not only a view of the ocean but all the first green.
Fancy Hotel in the Sticks
Although not cheap (prices start at around $110), this four start hotel is a great place to stay. The hotel sits on the ayrshire coast looking out to the Isle of Arran. The 90-room hotel offers a golf course, indoor pool, spa, gym, steam room, sauna, solaria, beauty salon, squash court, bar and restaurant (Fairways Restaurant). Service is excellent and the recently-renovated building is in excellent condition (built in the late 1800's). The 2004 British Open Golf Championship will be held at the Royal Troon Golf Course and the Marine Hotel will be the host hotel for the 7th year in the hotel's history.
Unique Quality: There's a great view from most of the rooms. Troon beach and dunes are just a short walk away and the hotel can set you up for a day of sailing as well.
Directions: Just a 5 minute drive from Prestwick International Airport

marine hotel troon
this hotel has been beautifully refurbished to a very high standard. Friendly staff ,very comfortable room . lovely views of the golf course and the sea.
Good food, gym and leisure pool looked superb- unfortunately, we were only booked for one night so no swim suits with us.
Bit sad that hotel supplies porno films on its tv channel, but each to their own I suppose!
Marine Hotel Troon
I stayed at the Marine Hotel in Troon with my husband and 5 year old son for one night recently. I had requested a ground floor room but the booking was lost and we ended up on the third floor. I am walking with the aid of crutches at the moment and this would not have been a problem had the lift not been out of order. I knew from previous reviews that the lift was ancient, hence booking the ground floor room. It was late afternoon when we checked in and unfortunately all the other guests staying in ground floor rooms had already checked in so all we could do was try and see the funny side of it!
We ate in the bar and the food was fairly good. The bar is very child friendly as there was a large group of us. The hotel is on a direct flight path into prestwick airport and is noisy, but that didn't bother us too much as we were only staying one night.
There was a large sofa bed for our 5 year old and he loved it. The service was above average and overall I would recommend this hotel.
very pleasant stay....
Our visit was a nostalgic return to ayrshire for my wife. she lived nearby many years ago.
i chose this hotel because im a golfer, and its closeness to royal troon g. c. and not because of the reviews. which did concern me but not im pleased to say deter me.
we stayed 4-7 dec ish ! wet windy and chilly outside. we arrived early eve , checked in to our top floor room (premium). very large, but as i think they had only just turned the radiator....very cool.
we requested a warmer room......we were escorted to a lower floor premium room. (smaller which helped......) the radiator was turned on, we went down to the warm bar for half hour and then ret. to our room to change for dinner . the room had warmed up perfectly well. (the rad was stinking hot).
we enjoyed a very well presented and tasty meal (2 courses each and 3 glasses of house wine. for £65 in a fairly quiet restaraunt.
From there on in we were very happy with all aspects, thou we did not return for eve. meals deciding instead to try locals....... ie troon centre ....italian cecchini s be there early out of season.... they close kit. at 8pm !!! also the loans inn about 3 miles out of troon. open later. both very welcoming.and good quality.
so ive given the marine 4/5 for the time we stayed. it does sound from other reviews that they have staffing problems at busy times out of season.
i would imagine that they have a very busy april--october incl. but do some prudent cost cutting at other times. a matter that they must consider closely as many of us are now looking at tripadvisor etc for recommendations before booking. and i notice that the marine has received several daming reports since our visit.
great value for money!
excellent hotel, great service from all staff. room was quite small but adequate. didnt use leisure facilities, but they looked great. will definately go back to this hotel & would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice break. would also recommend nearby italian restaurant, cacinnis - food was absoultely fabulous & great value for money
Better than some of the views suggested
Wasn't sure what to expect with some of the views written. We found our room to be spotlessly clean, warm, comfy bed and nice views. The evening meal was very pleasant and considering you are paying hotel prices I thought very reasonable. The Pinot Grigio was probably a little over priced but very drinkable. I think you can only expect to pay these prices in a 4* hotel. Admittedly the corridors/entrance lacked a little personality but the rooms more than made up for that. The lounge bar was very comfortable and lovely to sit in after your meal. It was also very relaxing on a Sunday morning with coffee and a read at the papers. My only problem was with breakfast not much of a range if you are vegetarian, however scrambled egg on toast can suffice. The leisure facilities were clean and well looked after.
Possibly the best thing about the hotel is its location, if you enjoy a bracing coastal walk, with spectacular views over to Arran and round the Ayshire coast then look no further.
could not be worse
this is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in especially when you consider how it is 'sold'.
Dirty dinning rooms chairs, wine came after the food had arrived, slow service, had to ask to be served, poor gym equipment, small rooms. Very disappointing.
Very friendly staff, nice surroundings, great shower in the room! Very nice bar too. The situation of the hotel is great, ten minutes to walk into Troon along the beach, and views of the sea from the hotel are lovely. We LOVED Cecchini's Restaurant in Ayr, a branch of the one in Troon which was booked out. Marine Hotel very kindly booked a taxi into Ayr for us and we had a stupendous meal, absolutely a highlight. Food and drink prices in the Marine Hotel were high though and not wonderful value, so I was glad that the breakfast (£13.50) was included in our rate.
We stayed at the Marine hotel after our original hotel had to cancel our booking as their boiler broke. We were very glad of the cancellation as we had a very enjoyable stay at the Marine. We moved rooms after the first night as our room was at the end of the corridor and the doors banged and crashed with every guest who went to breakfast at 6am. The hotel receptionist was very helpful and explained that there were a few major conferences on at the hotel so the majority of guests were there on business. We, being there for leisure, wanted to sleep in so she moved us to a quiet corner where we were undisturbed in the mornings. The staff were all great and we had two fantastic recommendations for dinner - Elliotts in Prestwick which is a modern, trendy place with a great menu and Cechinni's in Ayr, traditional Italian food. Both places were well worth a visit!!
Great hotel, nice rooms, good breakfast and a good location to get around and about!!!
