AJ Capital buys Marine Hotel in Troon

1.10am 1st October 2020 - Property

Adventurous Journeys (AJ) Capital Partners has expanded its portfolio of golf hotels in Scotland with the purchase of The Marine Hotel in Troon.

The 89-room hotel, which overlooks Royal Troon Golf Club’s Old Course, will be the third Scottish golf property acquired by AJ Capital, which also owns Rusacks Hotel in St Andrews and the Marine Hotel in North Berwick. 

The trio of seaside golf-linked venues will come under a new umbrella collection that AJ Capital is calling Marine & Lawn

“We’re thrilled to share the news of the Marine & Lawn Collection, a hand-crafted hospitality experience for travellers embarking upon once-in-a-lifetime visits to the Scottish golf coast,” said Ben Weprin, AJ Capital Partners Founder and CEO. “Our background is rooted in restoring iconic community landmarks and creating distinctive spaces for both locals and travellers alike. We are excited to provide memorable destinations that will leave visitors with memories to be cherished for years to come. Whether you’re visiting one property or all three, we look forward to serving as a backdrop for an unforgettable journey.”

The Marine Hotel’s former owners, Cannock Group and Stellar Asset Management, started renovations to the hotel in the spring and these updates will be continued by AJ Capital beginning in late 2020. Once completed in summer 2021, the reimagined hotel will debut with revitalised guest rooms, two unique food and beverage concepts, expansive meeting and event space and an updated fitness and leisure centre with an indoor pool, squash court and sauna and steam facilities.

Phillip Allen, AJ Capital Partners Chief Development Officer for International Markets, said: “The Ayrshire Coast offers unparalleled golf facilities and we look forward to creating a hospitality experience that complements these best-in-class courses. The reimagined Marine Hotel will celebrate the history of the coast and the golf excellence that is synonymous with the region, all while providing travellers with a special, hand-crafted stay.”

The Marine & Lawn Collection will join AJ Capital Partners’ growing portfolio of hotels throughout the UK, which also includes the Randolph Hotel in Oxford and the Cambridge Hotel in Cambridge, which are currently undergoing renovations and will reopen as part of the Graduate Hotels collection in 2021.
