“Excellent hotel across from Royal Troon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great place to stay, especially if one is playing golf at Royal Troon (just across the road). An old hotel that has been updated well, including good Wi-fi and very good food for breakfast and dinner, the main building was constructed in late 1800s for the grandson of the founder of Johnnie Walker Whisky. The hotel bar is called Walkers. Even though it is not a large hotel, there was a wedding reception over the weekend, The main building is a nice tudor with lovely grounds.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building are on the second and third floor with lots of stairs to climb. There are...

This hotel has a fascinating history and architecture which makes it well worth stopping off in for a spot of food or an overnight stay. The house was built in 1895 for the grandson of the founder of Johnny Walker - yes, the famous whisky brand, and the owner served as managing director of the company.

From an architectural perspective the house was designed by a famous Scottish Architect, and as a listed building has retained the majority of its regional features, including wood panelling, fireplaces and sandstone carved stonework.

On my arrival I was a little concerned to find that I was being located in a chalet in the grounds. However, i need not have been concerned. Unlike some hotels where ‘chalets’ is a by-word for the cheap seats, this is most certainly not the case with Piersland. The chalet room I enjoyed was newly built to a high standard of finish and specification, was well appointed very comfortable and in addition had excellent wifi available for guests. I enjoyed an excellent night’s sleep and the complementary water and fruit were very well appreciated - this attention to detail really counts.

I took the opportunity to eat in the restaurant and enjoyed a sea food grill followed with fresh fruit salad. The portions were ample, and the food well presented and of a high standard. My only issue was that the service was slower than what i would have preferred, although i had booked a table for 7.15, there was a noticeable delay before my order was taken and then a further delay before my food arrived 8.00. I was originally seated in the verandah area and then moved into the main restaurant. My only reasoning was that as a wedding party was being held, the staff must have been really busy.

Breakfast was superb, with a wide range of buffet options available, as well as cooked items from the menu, Including steak for a £10.50 supplement. apparently American visitors are into this idea. I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs - again a generous portion and amazing taste.

Overall a very pleasing stay, and a hotel that I intend to visit and stay in again.

Arriving mid afternoon we were greeted with a very warm, friendly welcome, enquiring if we'd had a good journey. However, this experience is very much based on which lady is on duty, pick the wrong time and you will receive the pole opposite of the welcome we received. Having arrived during a clearly busy lunchtime period, although served quickly, it was clear that simply ordering a sandwich was not the done thing and was clearly not to the waiting staff's liking, even though we were clearly guests and not passing trade. That aside the quality and freshness of the sandwich was excellent.

The room itself, one of the little lodges, was very roomy and clean, although several of the light bulbs were blown - a fault not detected until I returned that evening. As has been mentioned previously, by other reports, the bed was indeed very comfortable indeed. The bug bear of this room were the TV's, neither of which provided a very good clarity of picture - the real issue is having to spend a considerable amount of time trying to find the SKY Channels only to find the advertised list was simply not available. The weakness of signal gave a very poor standard of picture all round.

Refreshed, after a great night's sleep, having to endure a cold shower because there was simply no water was unacceptable. This was where the other side of reception became apparent as the aforementioned lady, firstly barely looked up, and secondly couldn't care less about the issue. It was either all used by others or perhaps I didn't let it run for long enough! immediately behind me were another 2 guests looking equally as annoyed at myself.

So apart from this member of Staff the Piersland is indeed the perfect place to stay when visiting Troon.

Room Tip: Do not ask for a lodge with a high number, as the 5am delivery truck will wake you for an early star...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights last week and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the bed was really comfortable. The food was great and very good value. As a 70th birthday treat it was just the thing.

My husband and I stayed at the Piersland for two nights last week. As usual everything was excellent. We go for a short stay at least once a year to Troon and love the hotel.
The staff are friendly the breakfast cooked just to your requirements. Evening meals have a large selection, grounds beautiful.
Looking forward to our next stay.

This hotel is an old family home, formerly one of the Johnnie Walkers Whisky Family homes, close to the world famous Troon golf course if you like that sort of thing (I don't). Choice of lovely rooms and chalets. I have stayed here several times over the past year or two and will continue to do so so please don't book as I might not be able to get a room LOL !!

Room Tip: All are good just tell the staff what you are after !

Staff are friendly, the hotel is well maintained, and the food is good. I’ve stayed at Piersland House several times over the last few years, and always found it good. Having stayed in a cottage on this occasion, I personally prefer the lodges (which have a more modern style than the cottages, and better sound proofing).

The Cottage:
Spacious, with separate lounge, bedroom and bathroom, the accommodation is separate from the main building. The cottages themselves are well maintained, however the flooring was very creaky and you could hear your neighbour moving around. Whilst the hotel offers complementary WiFi I struggled to get a signal from my cottage.

Breakfast:
A small selection of continental breakfast items, and a hot breakfast can be ordered. The scrambled eggs were excellent.
