Very comfortable hotel in peaceful location. Food was most enjoyable, especially breakfast - best toast EVER! Leisure facilities excellent. Only downside was size of bed - just too small! Most hotels have kingsize.

Our room was large and airy with a large comfortable bed. Bathroom of a comfortable size. The food was extremely good and well served. The staff, most of whom did not appear to be Scottish, were helpful and attentive. The views from public rooms was stunning, over the Golf course and the estuary, and easy distance from North Berwick. Would... More

About 10 years since previous visit and has had a decent facelift in that time. Décor much better and gym and spa hugely improved. Staff excellent on whole but reception could have been more helpful on certain things.

Good hotel, what you expect from Macdonalds, I have stayed here many times and was very disappointed that they have changed the bar food menu only fish and chips no peas they had ran out? Only hot food.

Booked the luxury spa day for 2. I bought this for my daughters 18th birthday. Upon arrival we was greeted by very polite staff and taken to a room with refreshment to fill out the forms before we was shown around the place. It seemed a lot bigger than I expected. we was given our gowns, towels and slippers which... More

The hotel and spa are definitely worth a visit, the food was delicious. Some staff were good others were hopeless and unhelpful, at points rude. It's hit or miss, it wouldn't put me off the hotel but next time I'll stand my ground.

We booked for Sunday Lunch and were seated on time and ordered our food within 10 minutes. ! hour and 20 minutes elapsed before we got our starters which were very poor. Gloopy soup and a beef dish that looked like a disc of congealed dog food. After another 15 minutes we got our main course and the beef had... More

Stayed for 3 mid-week nights at the Marine on a business trip with a number of colleagues in the first week of Feb 16. The hotel looks as though it has gone through some re-furbishment work recently and is looking smarter than my last stay. As usual the staff were very welcoming and friendly and my room (212) was clean,... More

Absolutely stunning surroundings, and great views from the reception areas. The building itself is very impressive, but the double rooms are fairly small and standard. The Craigleith Restaurant in our experience was also extremely overrated. The menu is basic and expensive, and the service is pretty poor. A number of tables were complaining when we dined on the Saturday night,... More
