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 True it might look a bit outdated yet service is excellent, with a young And dedicated team that will...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

Stayed there a few times...Rooms are comfortable and clean. The price is right and includes breakfast. You can take the bus downtown right out front of the hotel. It has a good restaurant and little bar.

The Mariner is a nice place, with a very cosy feel to it, in a nice location - close to town but far enough away to be quiet and out of the way. The menu is quite limited, but the specials board supplements it well. The beer selection is also limited, which is a little disappointing, but the surroundings for... More

I only use the dining facilities at this hotel, so cannot comment on the accommodation. The food here is excellent and, as you might guess from the name, specialises in various types of seafood. But, for me, the best part of eating and drinking at the Mariner is the level of service. You can find good food at many restaurants... More

First time I have stopped here for a number of years and I was not disappointed. Although I had a room in the annexe, it was very clean and well laid out. It could be an issue if it was teaming down with rain. The hotel gets full very quickly and hence is best to book in plenty of time.... More
