We went to the Mariners in late August, which is not the warmest time of the year on the south coast but had a lovely weekend in the town. The motel is right on the waterfront with dedicated access to the esplanade. The staff were very friendly and sorted us out with a good room. Rooms were very clean, spacious,... More

Great place to stay. I only stayed one night but it was great. View was amazing!!! Plus the price was very reasonable for the view and the location. It had easy access onto the mariner boardwalk as well. Didn't eat here because we ate else were. They also let us have a late check out which was very nice of... More

We passed through here for a quick overnight stay. The website was very misleading!! Our room was very run down and old, with a musty smell - the bathroom looked straight out of the 1970s and in poor condition. My partner and I joked it felt like somewhere a movie about a serial killer would be filmed! We were glad... More

We are very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay at Mariners Waterfront Hotel & Motel. Unfortunately you stayed in the old un renovated part of the Hotel which the bathrooms are not new as the building was built in the 70's a lot of the décor is dated as such. The other rooms have had a full renovation... More

We loved our stay here, would definitely be back, and recommend this place. Our room overlooked the water, and was very clean and comfortable. We had a meal in the restaurant which was part of the Hotel. Wifi was good to have. The service was excellent also.

Stayed at the Mariners on a Friday evening. Cant comment on BFast or Lunch as ate elsewhere. Upgraded to the superior rooms after taking Trip Advisor comments on overlooking the Bay and away from the Bar. It was a quiet night but it was great to wake up to the water lapping on the Clyde River. Only complaint was the... More

Arrived at the hotel just after dark and parked in the big parking lot between the shops, and adjacent to the hotel reception . The barman who was also looking after reception was super efficient, and very quickly found our booking. He then asked where we parked, and when I told him, he said there was undercover parking and even... More

We were passing through and had pre booked here to stay overnight. We had a little trouble finding it, as we didn't realise it was at the back of a Pub. The room was comfortable and we had a lovely view from our balcony. We went down to the pub for dinner and it was really nice. The Staff there... More

It's a pub with a great view of the Bay and a decent dinner menu. After work or meeting friends for dinner, on a sunny day the back deck is the only place to be. Gorgeous view of the water, the staff are friendly and the food is served up with pride - tasty and reasonably priced.
