We recently spent a couple of days at the Marine having done so frequently in the past. This hotel is set in a superb location adjacent to the golf courses and looking out to Arran. The public areas of this hotel are relaxing and well maintained - similar with most bedrooms we have stayed in over the years. Have occasionally used leisure facilities and seem more than adequate. Cannot specifically comment on the spa facilities as we have never used but seem very popular.
In the main staff we have encountered have been polite and helpful.
The only issue that I have with this hotel is with variable quality of food specifically evening meal. The restuarant is situated with beautiful views over to Arran and in my opinion has potential to be a most excellent and attractive offering. That is unfortunately the not always the case. On our last visit my wife (vegetarian) ordered a pasta & vegetable main course. This was not up to expected standard - in summary pasta one would purchase from any retail outlet poorly/over cooked along with some mixed roasted veg & piece of goats cheese on top. Too much oil/butter basically ruined this dish.
The above is only one example. I feel that with correct training meals could be of a consistent and higher quality.
Despite all of above I would recommend this hotel and would use again. At present however only on b&b basis i.e until consistent improvements in food are noted.
