I was looking forward to two nights the the Marine, but following a very warm welcome the hotel felt on the sad side. Beds and room were OK with a corner view over the bowling green, tennis courts and the sea. The main parts did not give the impression of thorough cleaning and the brass handrails on the staircase carried... More

A great day and great memories by all our family and friends at our wedding on 6th August 2016 held at The Marine Hotel in Ballycastle. We chose Marine because we were impressed of the potential service and interest of the staff. It had recently reopened with new owners, manager and staff team. We knew that the fantastic location and... More

The hotel is within a stunning location across from the beach and kids play park. The hotel photos are a bit misleading as the hotel is right on the road and the green space to the front is public area. Ideal for families, staff are extremely friendly, ideal location for Carrick A Rede and Giants Causeway. They could drop the... More

We had a really nice meal in the bar area of the Marine Hotel. Nice table by the window with great views off the sea. The staff were friendly and attentive nothing was to much trouble for them to make us feel welcome. We are a family of six, 3 adults, one requiring wheel chair access and 3 children. All... More

We popped into the restaurant inside the Marine Hotel Ballycastle. While the service was very pleasant and timely, the food left quite a bit to be desired. The picnic tables outside drew us in and we decided to get out of the rain and sit in the large restaurant. Overall the food was bland and left a lot to be... More

I stayed in the Marine Hotel for one night with my 7year old son and my parents (in their 80's). My dad is originally from Ballycastle and wanted to go back to Rathlin for a day so I thought it would be nice for them to stay overnight instead of facing a long journey. We had read some very negative... More

The ambience was nice here, the service was good and the staff were very friendly. Although we didn't eat anything here, the food that came out looked very nice and we would come back to eat here one day. A small area of improvement would be that the outside tables need cleared a little more often. Even though it was... More
