PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION
Monday, November 11th, 2014
Less than 24 hours after Si! Café:Bar:Restaurant won the 'Family Outlet of the Year' title at the SLTN awards, team SimpsInns were in St Andrews to attend the inaugural Scottish Golf Tourism Awards at the famous Old Course Hotel.
It turned out to be another night of celebration as the Old Loans Inn on the outskirts of Troon denied some stiff competition to be named Best Small Hotel of the Year 2014 at the awards sponsored by Visit Scotland, Bunkered magazine and the Scottish Golf Union (SGU).
The Old Loans Inn was redeveloped in 2009 with the introduction of 20 bespoke bedrooms to further complement this charming country pub and restaurant in the heart of Ayrshire. Since then the SimpsInns venue has proved extremely popular for visiting golfers, leisure breaks and for those in the area on business.
Golf bookings have been particularly strong for the Old Loans Inn throughout 2014, the year when the Ryder Cup was first played in Scotland at Gleneagles. SimpsInns continues to work closely with all the many great golf courses on its doorstep to encourage great value “Play and Stay” packages for visiting golfers to Ayrshire.
