Best Hotels in Troon

Troon Hotels

The eerie wilderness of Scotland’s coast breezes through sleepy Troon, where endless golden sands, glacial mirror-like seas and brisk coastal gusts attract the odd visitor even on the coldest, bleakest of days. Inhale the fresh salty air, feeling it breathe away your weariness as it opens up your lungs. Once refreshed, you should have enough energy to play a round on one of Troon’s various golf courses, or to browse the town’s various independent boutiques and local stores.

Things to see

With a long history of golfing, Troon attracts flocks of fans who come to play on the Royal Troon Golf Course. Famous for holding the Open Championship, Royal Troon’s Old Course is constructed in the traditional out-and-back manner. With testing holes that meander through the wild landscape, even the most experienced player can find themselves caught out by this tough course, especially if the wind takes hold. Open to all for a fee, playing here is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for dedicated fans. Away from the game, Troon’s spot on Ayrshire’s coast offers a great chance for some outdoors family bucket and spade fun on its sandy shore – providing the weather behaves of course. Once you’ve had your fill of coastal life head inland for a day trip to mediaeval Dundonald Castle whose grey weathered stone walls were once a Stuart stronghold.

Hotels in Troon

Troon has a surprisingly good selection of hotels and B&Bs for a small town. From traditional accommodations offering upscale facilities in a manor house type setting to cheap and cheerful family-run seaside bed and breakfasts, and self-catering apartments, you’re not stuck for choice in Troon. Hotel amenities vary drastically from place to place, so if you’re looking for an on-site restaurant, WiFi and other mod-cons head to a larger 3 or 4-star rated Troon hotel. If you’re around during the Open – or another major golf tournament – prices will sky-rocket and you’ll need to book well in advance.

Where to stay

As a small town it’s easy to get around in Troon, so wherever you stay it shouldn’t be too far to walk around. Accommodation near the golf courses, especially the Royal Troon, tend to come with a heftier price tag, so those looking for a cheap hotel should head into the town centre. Good value accommodation can also be found in small B&Bs around the town centre and seafront – perfect for by-the-seaside fun. Other good value accommodation – including well-known chain hotels - can be found in neighbouring Monkton, just a stone’s throw from Glasgow Prestwick Airport.

How to get to Troon

Troon Station is right in the town centre, offering a quick 40 minute hop by train to Glasgow, while local buses head through the town on their way to Ayr or Irvine. Budget flights from Ireland and Europe regularly land at Glasgow Prestwick Airport, just a 5 minute drive away, while flights to Glasgow International Airport land from all over the UK and Europe. It’s also possible to reach Troon by ferry from Larne in Northern Ireland. The best place for hiring a car is Glasgow Prestwick Airport, though you’ll only need this if exploring out of town.
