Stay at this little Gem when golfing Turnberry
Posted Sep 23, 2014
I was taken back a bit when we arrived at the Malin Court Hotel. As it turns out it's a combination hotel, and Senior residence. Yep also known as a nursing home. The upstairs is hotel rooms and the lower level are residence. PLEASE don't let that sway you from staying here. The rooms were the best on our 10 day trip through Scotland. The staff was very friendly and the dining room was excellent! They had a nice bar area, and because people lived there, the gardens and location were awesome. Our room overlooked the 7th green on Turnberry and we got up in the morning to see Pheasants and sheep in the light fog over the pasture. Beautiful! Friends of ours were staying at the expensive Trump Turnberry hotel only a mile up the road, and our room was every bit as nice at a fraction of the cost.
Very quite and just a great place to stay. I can only repeat, don't let the Senior living thing scare you, you'd never know they were there and when you do run across them you get nothing but a smile! BTW we are not seniors.
The room was large and spacious, bathrooms very upgraded and all very very clean.
