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

Having popped in to a favourite which was full and another similarly unavailable to accommodate our party of 8, the Mariner were helpful from the promptly answered phone call to the end. My meal of haddock and chips was excellent (although perhaps petit pois instead of peas might not be a stretch at this price) and everyone else enjoyed their... More

Visiting my girlfriend in Aberdeen. Stopped off in the mariner for and evening meal. The fish and chips were very good. The fish cooked perfectly, the batter could have been slightly crisper but it was still very good. The chips were perfect. Fluffy soft inside and a perfectly cooked slightly crisp outside. The service was attentive, fast and polite. Can't... More

Great simple bar menu with some excellent specials. Atmosphere in the bar was good, the Food was really good and piping hot whilst the drinks service was very attentive. I had the burger which was very flavoursome and my wife had the scampi which she thoroughly enjoyed. Topped off with sticky toffee pudding which was stunning. We will definitely be... More

Spent a couple of nights at The Mariner Hotel in April while in Aberdeen for business. Forget modern standard hotels here as The Mariner will bring you back to the Sixties style: but I consider this a highlight of the place. True it might look a bit outdated yet service is excellent, with a young And dedicated team that will... More

Stayed in a few hotels in Aberdeen and most off them are very average. The Mariner has always been a very pleasant stay and the food is excellent. Brilliant value for money and a lot better than the rest off the larger chain hotels.

Got this hotel booked for a night out in Aberdeen, the location really is spot on since it's only a taxi drive away and literally got there in no time! The room itself was beautiful and very roomy! And also has quite a large car park for leaving your car. Since it's not exactly near the clubs I felt very... More
