Getting to the conference couldn't be easier. Troon is a beautiful small seaside town on the west coast of Scotland which is well serviced with access to two main motorways (the M74 & M77), a train station & it's only 5 minutes by car to Prestwick Airport.
Glasgow Prestwick Airport (this airport is 5 to 10 mins away by taxi)

This is the conference venue and is therefore ideal to stay for the duration. We've negotiated a special deal with the 4 Star Hotel : A double or twin room for two nights bed and breakfast with dinner for two on the first night included is £185. This equates to £46.50 per person per night sharing a room with dinner included on the first night and full use of the spa. Just mention the fact you're a delegate at the Mama Conference when you call to book.
