“good night was had by all.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Booked Friday night in the Marine Hotel we had 3 rooms booked. We met in the Marconi bar and had dinner and a few wines.it was a good meal and good friendly staff. The bedrooms are a little tired but very clean and have a great bed. We did go up the town to connors Pub for some music as the hotel had no music on friday night if they had we would have stayed. Before leaving we had a nice breakfast sat morning. We did agree that we would be back.

Room Tip: room 111 is a good room with a balcony.

We stayed here 24 to 26 january '14. We were met by the very pleasant front of house staff. It really is a nice experience to be met by such very happy and courteous people. The room was comfortable and well laid out, the view is that of the seafront of Ballycastle, there were some rough seas on show during our stay and some surfers out to enjoy it. We ate in the hotel restaurant on both nights, we were impressed by the standard of service provided and the food that arrived in a timely fashion can only be described as excellent on both nights. This is a seafront hotel that I would gladly recommend to the traveller, even if you don't stay over in the hotel and your passing do drop in and have one of the many excellent meals on offer. Excellent Hotel.

We stayed in this hotel as a family trip for two nights. We received a lovely greeting from the kind receptionists and went to find our large sized rooms with a great view of the sea outside. We had a really good stay and what really impressed us was the lovely, kind young staff, waiters and the delicious food. The waiters kept us informed on when the food was arriving and they had good senses of humour. The food was amazing as we ate there both nights and there was a wide range of choices on the menu for all types of people. This is a very good hotel with very good staff and I would not hesitate to go back here. We would recommend this to all types of people.

We had a great evening in the Marine Hotel last night. A large group of us met in the hotel's Marconi bar and had a lovely dinner. The staff were professional and courteous. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the bar.

This hotel is in a great location on the seafront, we were fortunate to be allocated a seaview room. The room was a good size, clean & fresh, though a little overcrowded with double & single beds. It would be lovely in the future for some of these rooms to be refurbished with king size bed & a little luxury in the bathroom.
If dining in the bistro bring a big appetite,the menu is reasonably traditional but everything was delicious & good value, I can recommend the seafood chowder & cock & bull, but don't order them together or you will never need food again!!
Breakfast was freshly cooked & again delicious, all staff were very friendly & helpful
Great to see the hotel open again, really hope it does well, deserves support as it's such a great spot. I am staying again in February & really looking forward to it

Hi Dorothy,

Many thanks for your kind comments, it was lovely to meet you and your family over the new year period when you stayed with us.

This past Christmas was our first year in business so hopefully we will not be so quiet this coming festive season.

I hope you had a pleasant trip back home and maybe you will come and visit us again in the future.

Kind regards

Patricia

We travelled to this Hotel by pure accident as our booked Bed and Breakfast fell through! What a charm circumstance can be as our stay at this hotel was fantastic. The room was clean and tidy and the facilities were excellent - but above all else was the level of customer service provided by the Hotel Staff! They were friendly, helpful and gave the impression (with sincerity) that they wanted to be as helpful as possible. Refreshing to be at a place where the employees really valued doing their job! Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable! We will be back on our next visit to Northern Ireland!

Room Tip: Try and book a room with a view of the ocean - the scenery is spectacular
