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.

Old Loans Inn Troon Scotland Bedroom ImageRenowned for its warm friendly service and excellent fare, The Old Loans Inn has maintained the traditional values you'd expect from of a Scottish country pub, but in moving with the times, the redeveloped property introduces a brand new bar and restaurant but even more impressively a  wonderful addition to Ayrshire's quality hotels.

The Old Loans Inn now boasts an additional accommodation element where 20 traditional, yet contemporary, bedrooms have been created and the range of uniquely-designed rooms and suites will cater for every need with

  • Luxury King Size beds
  • Free WiFi
  • Jacuzzi Baths in the deluxe rooms 
  • Residents' Rooftop Terrace and Garden
  • Free off road parking
  • Media hub allowing you to fill the room with your own music, games, pictures and videos. (Cables not supplied)

Each bedroom has been named after one of the many excellent golf courses in Ayrshire, including the world famous Royal Troon, Turnberry, Prestwick, Dundonald and Shiskine on The Isle of Arran. The main master-suite has been named after Stuart Cink, the golfer who won the 2009 Open Championship at The Ailsa Course at Turnberry.

The king size beds in the rooms offer unrivalled comfort and whether your stay is in the standard rooms, or one the suites or master suites each of the rooms aims to fulfill the needs of the visitor fully.

Spacious rooms and work areas are supported by Free WiFi throughout; golfers will love the relaxing feel and golf theming present in the rooms as much as the proximity to the golf courses themeselves. Families will no doubt make use of the media centres in each room allowing guests to playback their digital photographs or music through the televisions.

The luxury bathrooms also engender a sense of wellbeing. Powerful rainshower heads and local soaps are just what's needed after a hard day's golf, business or pleasure - some music? Well just plug in your MP3 and away you go!

Lorraine Inglis from Troon is just one of the many original staff who have returned to The Old Loans Inn.

“The building has been completely transformed,” explained Lorraine, who was particularly impressed with the residents’ rooftop garden and its stunning views over to Arran. "it's just fantastic how the old inn has been turned into such a fantastic hotel but has still retained all it's charm"

Old Loans Inn also recognises that first and foremost you are our customer, our guest and as such we are proud to ensure that booking through our website will ensure you have a Best Rate Guarantee.
