Iconic Hotel overlooking Royal Troon Golf Course
Property News - £7 million sought for The Marine Hotel
Colliers International is inviting offers in the region of £7 million for The Marine Hotel - a magnificent four-star hotel situated next to the world famous Royal Troon Golf Course on the west coast of Scotland.
Built at the turn of the 20th century, the 89-bedroom coastline hotel, which offers spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran and Ailsa Craig, is one of the most well-known and iconic hotels in Scotland. The Marine Hotel is currently part of The Hotel Collection (formally known as Puma Hotels) and the selling agent Julian Troup, Head of UK Hotels Agency at sole selling agent Colliers International, said: “The Marine comes with considerable heritage, a strong trading base and platform for future business growth. We anticipate considerable interest from our database of UK and International buyers”.
The hotel is located on the edge of the 18th hole of the famous Royal Troon Golf Course, which has been the host of The Open Golf Championship on eight occasions, with the event next scheduled to return in 2016. In addition Prestwick and Turnberry golf courses, both of which have hosted The Open in the past, as well as countless other excellent courses, are within easy reach. A range of other attractions, including Galloway Forest Park, Burns National Heritage Park and Cottage, Culzean Castle, Dumfries House, Dundonald Castle and Ayr and Hamilton Racecourses, are also nearby.
The hotel, which has undergone a range of refurbishment over recent years, offers extensive public areas, including a public lounge and bar known as The Arran Bar, in addition to its award-winning main restaurant, an AA rosette establishment, Two Fat Ladies at The Marine.
In addition, the beautiful hotel, with several deluxe rooms and suites, features beautiful moulded eves, balustraded parapets and castle-like turrets. Later additions to the property include a single storey sandstone extension, which houses the swimming pool and Health and Leisure Club and an extensive self-contained conference centre.
