I found the Mariner on Google and was pleased that I was able to have a room at short notice. I arrived at 19:50 and was shown to my room which faced the sea. Straight to the bar I went and decided on Red - the wine was on draught which would not be my normal way of trying wine,... More

Spent a couple of days camping at a near by site and dined both nights at the Mariner Hotel. First and foremost the views from the hotel are fantastic. A truly wonderful location and very peaceful and relaxing. The hotel is in good order and has a very pleasant bar and dining area looking across the estuary. The service at... More

The hotel was just what I wanted. We were stopping off en route after a trip to Northern Ireland with my elderly parents. We had 2 lovely rooms, both overlooking the river. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all we needed, we all slept well. We had tea here and also breakfast, both very enjoyable. Our hosts looked after... More

Cold day so were looking forward to nice cosy Sunday lunch. Hmmm pretty boring food and had keep our jackets on. Won't be heading back sadly. Main meals cost around £9 and didn't seem homemade, very bland!

We have just returned from a short break to Kippford. We ate at the Mariners twice and had very good meals each visit. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We could take our dog with us which was a big bonus. The food was good value for money and vegetarians were well catered for.

The bar staff were grumpy, the tables filthy and sticky, the kids enjoyed their burgers, served with old salad, my vegetarian lasagne was tasteless slop, will not go there again. The area is stunning, gorgeous sunsets and scenery.

The meal was wonderful and the atmosphere was great and the views were outstanding. The waitresses were also great but one female member of the bar staff was very rude and i dont believe that the waitress got the tip we gave her. We also noticed another young member of staff eating chips at the bar not helping anyone.
