The Marine Hotel in Troon is set to be transformed by a significant refurbishment which includes not only the inside of the hotel but its external features too.
The work, which starts shortly, is expected to be completed ahead of the AIG Women’s British Open at The Royal Troon Golf Club in August 2020.
Glasgow architects ICA have been commissioned, by ownership group Cannock Troon LLP, to revamp its 89 bedrooms and the hotel’s public areas.
The exterior work will include stonework, windows and a roof, with the latter being progressed immediately. This will be followed by the internal works: the bedrooms, reception area, restaurant and bar.
The work will take place in phases, and the hotel will remain open and will operate throughout.
Commenting on behalf of The Marine Hotel’s ownership group, Jonathan Gain, CEO of Stellar Asset Management said, “We are incredibly excited that we have reached a stage where we can now announce our plans and commitment to sympathetically restore this iconic Ayrshire hotel back to its former glory.
“From the moment we acquired the property back in 2015, we were immediately taken by its impressive location overlooking the 18th hole of
The Royal Troon Golf Club, not to mention its reputation, important to Ayrshire and its residents and the wider international golf community.
“Thus, we recognised the need to invest and elevate the hotel to the status it rightly deserves, having been the only hotel in Scotland to have retained an AA 4-star status throughout its history.”
The hotel is operated by Interstate Hotels & Resorts for the Cannock Group LLP, which includes Stellar Asset Management Ltd, Cannock Developments Ltd, Hetherley Capital Partners Ltd.
