I didn't know what to expect when pulling up to the Marine Hotel at night. I've been to Blackpool once and this sort of reminded me of the old hotels and inns along and across from the waterfront in Blackpool and other aging coastal towns that can no longer compete for leisure travelers. It turned out to be the complete... More

We had a last minute booking as I had made an error with a booking in Canterbury ... The staff at the Marine put us a camp bed to accommodate a 15 yr old and gave us a warm welcome& guided us to a restaurant that would still be open at 10pm. Breakfast was really busy but the staff all... More

Booked into the Marine Hotel taking a recommendation from The Times. Greeted by friendly staff who expected us. The hotel appears to be family run, at least that is the impression. Sea view room was quite small but ours was a last minute booking, so we were on the top deck. Quality sheets, white towels, all the usual condiments all... More

We visited the hotel as a family with a toddler. We booked a sea view family room, yes we do have a view of the sea however the window is so small we can't really see anything out of it. The family room has a lovely comfortable double and a single room, but there was still loads of room for... More

We stayed over a couple of nights for a wedding. Check in was efficient and friendly, they offered us newspapers and fresh milk and checked if we needed anything else at all. The room was clean and spacious with selection of teas coffees and water. The bed was so comfortable. On the whole the room and bathroom were perfect. Breakfast... More

We stayed here on 6th September for 1 night for my 40th and partners 45th birthday. From the moment we arrived we were looked after. We had a light lunch in the Orangery which was spot on, then we went for a walk along the promenade as our room wasnt quite ready. On our return we were checked in to... More

Me and my family went for my grandparents birthday. Being a table of 17 is understandably challenging for waiting staff, but the waiter had poor service skills, he was nice but seemed very nervous and inexperienced and could've been more polite and personable. Being a waitress myself I like to be understanding of mistakes, but there was simply no organisation... More
