We attended a wedding at this venue and stayed the evening. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. The buffet breakfast had a great selection. The lovely, large room we had on the ground floor overlooked the golf course and the ocean in the distance. A lovely place to stay and a nice place to spoil yourself.

We booked this as a surprise for one of friends Special Birthdays. 5 young ladies and we all enjoyed our night away. Kirstie on reception very helpful. We only had one room ready on arrival and robes only in the room. So take your flip-flops for getting down to the spa. Who did provide flip-flops to those needed. We got... More

We travelled to North Berwick, having chosen to stay in the Marine hotel. We were not disappointed! The girl at reception was very friendly and welcoming. We were given a corner room which overlooked the beach on one side. The location of the hotel is fabulous with picture postcard views. Nothing was too much trouble - milk for tea/coffee and... More

March was my last stay at the Marine, but I've stayed at this hotel many many times and never even during their major renovation project some years ago encountered any problems. The staff are lovely and very attentive, even remembering us each time we return. We loved the hotel and the atmosphere so much that we had our wedding reception... More

Separate letter to follow but points of note: Use of general manager's office was appreciated. Nigel and woman on reception were very helpful. Provision of chips was a nice touch! Drinks too expensive

Average hotel,indifferent staff especially at reception. Spa staff were great and the treatment was worthwhile. Other than that it was not worth the£700 we paid. Great location but sadly under utilised

As stated, whilst the breakfast chef worked to rule destroying everyone's stay with his childish behaviour, your under manager, in charge at the time behaved impecabbly stopped what should have been a riott, with people waiting up to 90 minutes to receive the disgusting sometimes uneadable food, should you really be intersted give me a call 07831862494

Dear Michael Thank you for your review, indeed the breakfast service on your stay was very disappointing although James did well to manage the situation. The Breakfast Chef has been with us for sometime and has always performed well, this was disappointing and the correct support and action has been taken, with no incidents since. More

This was always going to be an interesting stay as we came straight from a 5 star hotel on the Grand Canal in Venice. Check in was efficient and friendly, but I do agree with another reviewer that a little more warmth and conversation would be appreciated especially for overseas visitors. First impressions really count Scotland! Sea facing room was... More
