I purchased a voucher for my friends 40th birthday from Itison, when I called to book they had no weekend availability nor would they extend the voucher, I was told that the voucher ends at the end of May and the voucher would expire, total waste of £60. I tried to contact Itison also but they said they could not...

Dropped in for dinner on Easter Monday and had hoped to sit outside but just a bit cold but inside was too warm, -air conditioning present but not switched on maybe. Disappointed with the Beef Olives I ordered, only two and hardly any beef on the outside. My wife and daughters meals were fine but nothing special. It's been some...

A good spot for lunch with a wide menu to suit all tastes. We planned to have a "light" lunch as we were eating out later in the day so ordered from the "Light bite menu"; however, the portion sizes were enormous!! Goodness knows how much you would have got if you'd ordered the full size plates!! Great place to...

I'm a regular visitor and have always enjoyed visiting the old loans inn. Simpsinns have done a great job in reinvigorating a tired local and turning it into a vibrant and enjoyable small hotel. The food is usually very good and the service is always excellent. My only gripe is beer. They've had Arran Ales on in the past but...

So glad you enjoy the food and service, we recently won Best Casual Dining Restaurant at the Prestige Hotel Awards. Our beer selection is something we are currently looking at. Is there anything in particular you would like to see? We probably don't have a great deal of space in cellar for real ale kegs but could offer a better...

Service on arrival was efficient, friendly and informative. The bedroom was large with an extremely comfy bed and lots of storage space. The bathroom had a fabulous Jacuzzi bath with a powerful rain shower that was dressed with good quality toiletries. The food was of good quality and a good variety to suit all taste and it is very reasonably...

Went again for family meal. Excellent service excellent food. Always love my visits to family in Troon and our visit to the old loans. This time I had haddock and chips.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The award winning Old Loans Inn was named 'Small Hotel of the Year 2014' at the Scottish Golf Tourism Awards and continues to be one of the popular choices when staying in Ayrshire. Situated in the quaint village of Loans on the outskirts of Troon, this former Coaching Inn is the ideal base from which to explore everything Ayrshire has to offer. Owners SimpsInns transformed the Old Loans Inn by introducing 20 stunning new bedrooms, complete with full mod cons and some of the finest bedrooms in Ayrshire. At the same time, the owners were careful to retain the charm of the traditional Coaching Inn as the the Old Loans Inn remains a popular country pub and restaurant where customers return time and time again for the great menu choice. Relax by the real fire in the lounge area or take advantage of the sunken beer garden in the summer months. Guests enjoy complimentary Wifi throughout the hotel and in all bedrooms, where tea and coffee making facilities are available. Championship golf such as Open venue Royal Troon, Western Gailes, Glasgow Gailes, Dundonald Links and many other great courses are all close by.
