“Good Hotel Would Stay Again”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Stayed at the hotel overnight and went to our Christmas work party function which was held at the hotel with other companies. Food was great as was the party and the staff were very good.... would recommend the hotel no problem, the rooms are a bit dated but they said they are updating them this year, when this happens it would be perfect.

Room Tip: 2nd floor at the front of the hotel you get a great view.

We stayed overnight on 4th January, our room was very clean and warm, the staff were very efficient and friendly. We had a delicious meal in the hotel bar, I have specific food requirements and the chef prepared me a great meal. I would recommend this hotel and we are looking forward to staying here again.

We had our office party at the Marine Hotel in Ballycastle on the 14th December and I have to say it was fantastic night. The rooms were spotless and spacious with great views of the beach and sea. The food, although a carvery, was delicious and everything was served hot. The staff were attentive and could not do enough for you. The band were great doing both live music and a disco and had the dance floor filled all evening. All in all a superb evening and am definitely looking forward to another visit. Roll on Christmas 2014!

We had a family lunch in the Marine on New Years Day. There were 23 in our group and the management kindly arranged a private room for us so the children could play freely. The food was delicious with a great selection for both adults and children and good portion sizes.
I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good meal, nice atmosphere, friendly efficient service

I visited Marconi's Bar & Bistro on Monday the 16th of December with my husband, the bistro was very quiet although it is expected before christmas! We both had the christmas lunch and I must say it was beautiful! Followed by most possibly the best christmas pudding! The bistro has a lovely relaxing atmosphere, the young waitress megan that served us was very friendly and welcoming as was the barman! Your front of house staff at reception are a credit to you also! 5 stars for service and the meal; compliments to the chef, everything was perfect and we shall most definitely return! Keep up the good work and good luck for 2014!

In my opinion over priced hotel in great location
We had an upgrade and room pretty bad! Quite dusty,very unkempt despite renovation and re opening
Maybe teething problems but so not worth 100£a night in my opinion
Lovely ballycastle and its a great hub for all Antrim sights but won't stay here again,a beer or wine in the bar with nice view perhaps but not for overnight!shows disrespect to customers with shabby room

Apologies for not replying to your comments sooner we had a few issues with a duplicate listing of our page.

Many thanks for your comments.

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

The rooms had only been given a soft refurbishment to allow us to open in time for the summer season last year and there are plans in place for a full refurbishment.

I hope this has not put you off returning to the hotel again in the future.

Kind regards

Patricia
