I arrived at the Marine having driven from near Bremen. It is possible that a shack made of pallets might have seemed welcoming after that journey but, none the less, I found the hotel impressive and the staff welcoming. There was one who did not speak English but she passed me to someone who did quickly.
The hotel offers a pool and spa. I do not partake of these things but I overheard positive reports from two 'buisnessmen', neither of whom were english but obviously had the common language.
Dinner was a choice of a la carte or buffet. This night it was Swedish, so I declined.
the a la carte menu was limited but the food was impressive, along with the service. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and savoured every mouthful.
The internet worked well in my room, and I had no issues whatsoever with it.
My room was an odd shape, and might not be to everyones taste, but I did have a balcony with a view of the Baltic.
A note of caution. On the east side of the hotel is a plot of land.I dont doubt it will be built on soon, and any building works or subsequent erection there will affect you.
The 'but' in my title comes from its location, seemingly in one of Kolobrzeg's more downbeat areas. This docked a star, despite the quality of the hotel.
it may well be they know something i dont, and that the area is going to be widely developed and improved, much like everywhere else in Poland I add! None the less, it stands out in dour surroundings as things are in Oct 2012.
I used it purely as a base to visit some places in Kolobrzeg, beforer moving on to the east. For that it was perfect.
