We didn’t stay at this hotel but we did use the pub side to eat. It was like a traditional pub used to look like. The service was excellent and courteous, best of all was the food, although a limited menu the food was of a very high standard. I tried their fish and chips, which I must admit was... More

This was our first visit to the Mariner and probably wouldn't have given it a second thought, but we got an offer on Itison and decided to give it a try for one night only. Our booking on the phone was a good experience with a nice friendly guy on the phone. On our arrival there is a decent sized... More

A regular diner in the bar, excellent home cooked food, very reasonably priced with a varied and seasonally changing menu. Always a good selection of specials to choose from. Service is friendly and efficient. One thing has detracted from my dining on several occasions and that is foul language of some customers and regulars in the bar area. Maybe this... More

Stayed at the Mariner with my wife for weekend and as usual the standards were excellent. Very clean, rooms are quiet so a good night's sleep and the food is brilliant. Anytime I'm staying in Aberdeen I stay here if possible, only a 10 minute walk to city centre as well.

First visit to the Atlantis Restaurant, We had a Itison voucher for a 3 course lunch £15.00 for 2. The staff were friendly, had a nice table, I opted for the Soup, Husband had the Melon Cocktail, Mains Belly of Pork and Seafood Crepe. Dessert was Pear Conde and Pineapple Fritters. Food all cooked to perfection. Value for money outstanding!!!... More

I have stayed here many times, I usually choose to stay, if available, a room in the crows nest! Love being on top of the world! However ideal only for a single occupancy as the room is quite compact! The bar restaurant is great, brilliant food, my daughter and I have also had food cooked especially for us, not on... More

With little time to make a booking for a quickly arranged funeral, I spent two nights at the Mariner and found it in almost every respect an excellent choice. The location on a quiet suburban road near the city centre is very convenient and conducive to a good night’s sleep. My single room 22 was quite spacious and the bathroom... More

I have visited the hotel for many year and to be fair that is probably the problem. I'm my opinion hotel is " tired" . The bar while keeping tradition is ok . The staff are very good . The rooms are tired , and for the price you pay on my opinion not worth it. This is a hotel... More

We have visited the Mariner restaurant many times and it has always been exceptional. The service is friendly, efficient and professional with great knowledge of their menu. Last night 3 of us had food from the main & specials menu. The restaurant specialises in seafood but their alternative meals are lovely too with great variety. I cannot commend this restaurant...

We booked a table at the Mariner for a carvery lunch on Sunday. There are not a huge number of eateries that offer a carvery in the area, and we'd not tried the Mariner before. The service was not great. The waiter took our order and failed to tell us what the set up was with the carvery. He must... More
