If you want a great hotel with friendly staff this is the place to stay. The chief deserves a round of applause and the waiting staff were excellent from arriving at reception to leaving was a wonderful relaxing experience.We were on the first floor in a beautiful room,with views over the golf course and sea. hope to return soon.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently while we were visiting North Berwick. The hotel is located in a residential area, only a short 10 minute walk into the centre. You can also cut across the golf course to the beach and walk along the beach into the town if you fancy a more scenic walk. Our room was a... More

Disappointing. Poor service - had to wait ages at empty reception desk to book in, room not set up as booked, very slow service in restaurant and food was mediocre at best. Only plus was the lovely location, Would not recommend did not live up to price charged

We really enjoyed our stay - the room was a good size, the bed was really comfortable and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was excellent. We ordered a side order of chips and got 7 chips for £3.50 which we thought was highly amusing coming form the north-east! A bit 'stingey' on this front!

We booked one night at The Marine through Secret Escapes, it seemed a good offer but our room wasn't great (although bathroom was good). As it was only for one night we didn't ask to change but, on check out, I did speak to the lovely receptionist who said to book directly with the hotel next time. The location of... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings, however attention to detail needs to be improved. Housekeeping, wash room porcelain in the bathroom. Trying to use your £10 internet voucher is next to impossible as they don't seem to have facilities to cope with this. Food in bar when served was cold. The breakfast is a much more enjoyable event with very good... More

Nice hotel with great staff. Exec room only had a standard double bed. Hotel was ridiculously hot and had no air conditioning so we got very little sleep. Disappointing as it is not usual to have either a small bed or no aircon in modern hotels.

We went for a 3 day stay with 2 elderly aunts, I found reception staff not as helpful as they had been in the past, we also went to the restaurant for breakfast, and the lovely Kirstie Adams had remembered us from our previous visit she is so helpful, telling us places to visit things to do, that had access...

+Very friendly hotel with brilliant location, North Berwick is such a nice town! Rooms with good standard and well working WiFi, service and solution minded staff. -Room service breakfast could include at lest one healthy option and the quality of the food should be more consistent. I wish the rooms could be a bit cooler when sleeping.
