My two frinds treated me to a spa day at the Marine Hotel in North Berwick on Wednesday 21st January for my 50th Birthday. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed use of the facilities before enjoying an afternoon tea followed by two half hour treatments. I had a massage and facial by Ailie and the massage was amazing.

For a 'elite' hotel, this was a poor experience. Firstly, we were advised the day before we arrived that the cost of bringing our dog with us had risen 150% even though their website and as it turned out, the information folder in the room, both had the old price advertised. The towel heater in the bathroom did not work... More

Good value and recommended. Good location for golf and walking. Fine food and friendly staff. In january the bedroom heating should be left on prior to arrival. From scratch, heating took a long time to build up

A great hotel on the North Berwick coast within easy reach of the town centre, with peaceful surroundings, great food and excellent customer friendly staff. Particular thanks to Iain, Fiona and Sam in Vital Spa, and Mark and Kirstie in the Restaurant, as they were all very kind and helpful. Thanks also to the efficient housekeeping staff, the chef, reception... More

Overall we had a lovely stay. I had booked this as a surprise for my husband's birthday and the hotel frontage does give you the wow factor when you arrive. I'd booked a superior king with sea view and our room was very pleasant. The superking sized bed was wonderfully comfortable and we both had a great night's sleep -... More

Wonderful stay. Perhaps lucky that I was allocated a room with a sea-view - fantastic, overlooking the golf course and the Firth of Forth. The spa facilities are housed in a new section of the hotel, with pristine changing rooms, large pool and fully equipped gym. The 'indoor-outdoor' jacuzzi was a fabulous experience … with the outside temperature around 1degreeC,... More

Stayed last weekend as a surprise for my 40th. Had the Ocean Top to Toe treatment at the Spa which was lovely. Spa staff were very friendly and efficient. The spa facilities were fab', couldn't fault them. We stayed in a Classic room which unfortunately didn't have a sea view which was disappointing as the hotel was very quiet. The... More

Stay wasn't so pleasant as it was bitterly cold night and the heating was down in the hotel. The room had a high ceiling so was uncomfortably cold. Apart from this it would have been a lovely weekend stay as hotel itself was lovely and spa was magical.
