Lovely hotel in a superb setting , it's old fashioned but good spa. Haven't eaten in hotel as it's typical overpriced hotel food and north Berwick has plenty good places to eat. Highly recommend for a weekend break , oh and amazing for us dog owners as dogs allowed in rooms

The hotel is in a fantastic position on the edge of the golf course with stunning sea views and a beautiful 15 minute walk along the beach to North Berwick. We booked at the last minute and got a great deal. With full use of the pool and spa facilities who could want more. Breath-taking!

After staying last January and being very unimpressed and causing one to write a constructive review on trip adviser. However, I was extremely impressed with the hotel's complaint handling where i was offered complimentary afternoon tea and spa days for 2. The spa manager was amazing and the afternoon was one of the best I had experienced. I would like...

We've stayed at the Marine a few times now, and it's always very relaxed, great service and quality rooms and food. A walk along the beach after the cooked breakfast and an afternoon in the pool/sauna. Dinner si also very good, while North Berwick has a few very good restaurants only £4 away in a taxi. Refresh and re-charge after...

Stayed overnight on DB&B basis in a group of 12. Public areas clean and comfortable, worn in some places and in need of a little tlc. Staff, when we saw them, were very pleasant and polite. Rooms at the rear of the hotel have splendid views over the golf course and sea. While I appreciate that this is an old...

This hotel is an old favourite so we knew what to expect - quite a nice building with easy beach and golf access, great views and walking distance to local shops and restaurants. The kids enjoyed the pool and the gym is adequate. And you can expect a decent hearty Scottish breakfast. But the revamp is long overdue throughout. The...

Stayed for one night to celebrate an 80th birthday. Very well looked after and all 6 rooms were good, particularly the excellent Gary Player Suite. We had a private dinner and also another private room for pre-drinks and after dinner relaxation. Food was very good, particularly the halibut and chocolate pave. The wine also good and not too expensive. Very...

Second visit to this hotel. The location, with views over the golf coast to the sea, is fantastic. You can be walking on the beach within minutes. The pool area with the outdoor jacuzzi and sauna/steam room suite is also very good. The public bar/lounge areas are lovely - great views, comfy sofas, modern decor and a real fire. The...
