I booked one night stay in the Macdonald Marine, sharing a twin room with my elderly mother. My father and sister recently died and as we had spent many happy family holidays in North Berwick, my mum and I wanted to return together one last time - to reminisce and reflect on happier times. As a normal working family in... More

Fabulous suite with fantastic views. Food average and breakfast service in room one hour late in spite of several requests to reception. No space for clothes as shelves full of coffee, etc. Very small hanging space when one considers the size of the bedroom. Bathroom enormous and luxurious.

My wife and I recently visited this hotel for dinner, bed & breakfast and were once again very pleased with our stay. We booked an executive room with a view over the golf course and the Firth of Forth which is a must as it is a most relaxing experience. Very comfortable and well appointed with one minor gripe about... More

The hotel situation is superb, right on the Golf course and breathtaking views, however it is tired and requires refurbishment, as with lots of hotels it is the staff who are the stars. We were given a room on the second floor 226, spacious with a recently refurbished bathroom , except the windows do not open and there is no... More

Staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and were extremely helpful and caring! The food was amazing and the service efficient. The rooms were beautifully presented. The only improvement or fault is that the spa changing rooms were left a bit messy by other guests therefore more frequent checks and also toilet roll ran out... More

Myself and my Husband have just returned from a 2 night stay in The Marine Hotel. On arrival, we recieved a friendly welcome. However, when we entered our allocated room supposed to be an 'Executive Double' to say we were dissapointed is an understatement. The room was very small and cramped with dirty walls and nothing at all like picture... More

Lovely stay this weekend. Staff are excellent. Even through the hotel was really busy standards remain excellent! Lovely sea view room and a yummy breakfast. The Spa is good especially the outdoor jacuzzi.Would recommend the Marine for a break!

Relaxing, romantic stay with good food, good service, great views and comfortable bed. Didn't use spa treatments only pool with heated outdoor area which was good. Nice walks available along the golf course.

Great location and nice staff. Dinner not as good as expected - small choice and really dry brownie. Had it not been included in the room rate it would have gone back. Rooms no king size bed even in exec room. Spa great and breakfast.
