Thanks to the welcome we received and the staff, our trip was extra special. I'd love to know where to get your pillows, as I had the most relaxing sleep on them. Evening meal at John Paul's was good but breakfast is the highlight meal.

Booked and overnight at the Marine Hotel and Spa in North Berwick for my husbands birthday. I booked it through the hotel's web site which gave me ten pounds credit to spend at the Hotel during our visit. The break was for dinner bed and breakfast on a special deal for Spring deal, paying for it in advance. The dinner... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and was very impressed. Not sure fi wewere upgraded but we got a huge room with a four-poster at very reasonable rate. We'd had dinner there before so knew the food would be very good but it surpassed our already high expectations: well sourced ingredients confidently cooked and amazing consistency; way above the level you'd...

I booked the Marine Hotel for us on the weekend of my Husband's 50th birthday. I was taking him to Barcelona 2 weeks later but we fancied getting away that weekend & we'd stayed here before. I booked a sea view room & mentioned on the booking that it was Hubby's birthday. It was lovely of the hotel to leave... More

We spent an evening here over the Easter weekend. The weather was phenomenal so we enjoyed the beautiful sea view from our third floor bedroom as well as the lounge and dining areas. We enjoyed lunch, dinner and breakfast here as well as the spa facilities. The food at dinner was delicious, (I had the Gnocci) and breakfast had a... More

We are repeat visitors to this hotel, enough said. The hotel is a grand old imposing building that has been tastefully modernised in all of the public areas and bedrooms( well the ones we gave stayed in). Yesterday some of the corridors show signs of the buildings age, but who sleeps in the corridors. We had a lovely classic double... More

Stayed overnight on a Saturday. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much bother. They took the time to explain things to us when we booked in. There were a bunch of women staying at the same time, whether the aftermath of a wedding party or a hen do, wasn't sure, they were a little... More

The hotel is indeed in a wonderful location. The food at the restaurant was wonderful. Only criticism is that for the prices we paid we expected some things to be better. Some of the spa facilities especially showers need some renovation. However, the treatments were great. The room was spacious but extremely hot and we were told that heating can't... More

Arrived to find only restaurant table available at 9pm. Staff did manage to squeeze us in at 6.30. Room booked was "Executive bedrooms are extremely spacious and bright". Not as described. Small double bedroom. Pretty dark. See picture.

Strangely unsatisfying short break. it gave the promise of a luxury hotel for a little spa break, but somehow failed to deliver- It seemed to have all the right ingredients, but didn't quite fire on all cylinders. The room was a little shabby for a hotel of this supposed standard. Peeling ceiling wallpaper in bedroom, a leak on bathroom ceiling... More
