Welcome to the Old Loans Inn, an award-winning four-star boutique hotel in the village of Loans near Troon and part of the privately-owned, proudly independent SimpsInns group.
The Old Loans Inn was an authentic 18th Century Scottish Coaching Inn before it was transformed into its current guise as a much sought-after 20-bedroom four-star hotel with a big reputation for quality food at affordable prices and using excellent produce from Ayrshire's local larder.
Recently the Old Loans Inn food offering reached new heights when Tam Cowan, the Daily Record's Restaurant Critic of the Year gave "an unbeatable 25/25" after his visit to the SimpsInns venue. It really is worth experiencing the Old Loans Inn firsthand.
Part of the Old Loans Inn charm has been the ability to provide 21st century luxury, complete with full mod cons, yet maintain its original charm and ambiance by keeping the likes of the original stone walls and feature fireplace which houses the roaring fire in winter.
After the £2million redevelopent programme completed in July 2009, the restaurant and bar areas are now complimented by the stunning outdoor terrace and sunken beer garden.
The hotel houses some of the finest bedrooms in Ayrshire; understated luxury and in keeping with a contemporary Scotland theme. The mod cons include powerful rain showers, MP3 connectors in the bathrooms; or you can plug your digital camera/smart phone into the bedroom's media centre. This way you can enjoy your images of your day on the TV screens, whether they're on the golf course or simply sightseeing around Ayrshire. All rooms have king size beds and you'll find space aplenty for your comfort and convenience.
Whether it's for business or pleasure, family or friends, fellow golfers or other, you can be assured that a stay at the award-winning Old Loans Inn will be one to remember.
