Old Loans Inn Wins Hotel Of The Year

The Old Loans Inn near Troon in Ayrshire was named Small Hotel of the Year for an unprecedented third consecutive year at the 2019 Scottish Golf Tourism Week Awards in St Andrews.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award for the third consecutive year,” enthused SimpsInns owner Malcolm Simpson. “To have been named Small Hotel of the Year once is very special, but to win for the third straight year is simply sensational.

As part of Scottish Golf Tourism Week (SGTW), the glittering awards ceremony took place at the Fairmont Hotel in St Andrews where Scottish broadcaster David Tanner hosted the event supported by VisitScotland, Scottish Enterprise and PSP Media Group.

The Old Loans Inn and The Gailes Hotel continue to fly the flag for Ayrshire. The SimpsInns properties are two of the most recognisable hotels for visiting golfers to Ayrshire and key suppliers within this tourism sector.

Sister property, The Gailes Hotel on Marine Drive, Irvine, was also shortlisted in the Hotel of the Year category (21-50 bedrooms).
