At only 15 minutes walking distance of Union Street (with good bus connections too) this quant little hotel is nicely located on a quiet street. I stayed 2 nights for business in a superior room, which is definitely worth the extra 10 pound (bigger room, bigger tv etc.). Although the furniture is quite past its prime the room has a... More

My wife and I recently attended a family gathering in this hotel and the care and attention offered to our family during a difficult time was superb. They attended the needs of people with dietary issues in a tremendous manner,they dealt with more people than originally planned for with no fuss and as a credit to the owner no extra... More

The Mariner is ideally located for a visit to Aberdeen and a very high standard of service is provided by very friendly staff. Whilst some people may think a hotel/B&B nearer the centre of town would be better, with that would come the noise of the city whereas this is quiet and a choice of 2 buses (number 15 or... More

Staying at the Mariner is very convenient due to it's location and nice pub and restaurant. However, the rooms are really starting to show their age! Cracking bathtubs and dirty shower heads. Not to mention that my laptop has a bigger screen than the in room tv. Will probably stay again due to location.

I stayed at this hotel on the evening of the 11th February expecting as stated a full Scottish breakfast, the poorest breakfast I have had in a Scottish hotel. I was served by a rude young waitress who when asked if there was a clean table`` stated just wait till get round to it``. Whereby she wiped the table onto... More

Firstly let me apologise sincerely if you found my breakfast waitress rude or unhelpful - this is unacceptable. All of my staff are aware of the importance of making all customer feel welcome & appreciated. I'm sure, after what - I see from your reviews - was an awful Indian meal in the town the night before -- this was... More

Fantastic service and excellent food. Will definitely be back again. Had a birthday dinner for 15 adults. Was offered a fixed price set menu with plenty of different choices and with reasonable price.

We went for a birthday lunch at the bar restaurant. Service was very good, although the bar tables have seen better days! We all chose the same items...Cullen skink (fish soup) and deep fried battered haddock and chips. The Cullen skink was definitely the best I have ever tasted. The haddock and chips were excellent....but no-one does it as well... More

Thanks for your review -- glad the staff looked after you well. Point taken on the tables (I've seen better days myself !) They've been highlighted in our on-going maintenance. Glad to know you enjoyed the Cullen Skink, we agree George makes the best that's out there. As for the fish -- I've got the Ferryhill in my sights!! Mike More

I've not actually stayed in the hotel as I am local to the area. However I've been here for food on quite a few occasions this year and I couldn't recommend it enough. The staff are always very helpful and friendly and the occasions I've had my baby with me they've always been very accommodating. Good food, friendly staff and... More

Having had a fantastic meal in atlantis we decided to stay at the hotel. Room was very clean and cosy. Just like being at home. Breakfast was a rare treat, cooked to order. Staff very efficient and helpful. Was very busy but had a great buzz. Would definitely recommend the mariner.
