Thankyou for your very kind review. Nova Tours come to stay with us about once per month and always bring a great crowd, it's nice to hear that you enjoyed your first holiday with us. Sharon is an absolute jewel especially when someone is taken poorly, we've often joked that she should be working in care but we certainly wouldn't want to lose her!

We stayed at the Marine Hotel for New Years Eve 4 day break.
Very good hotel, nice room, food is very nice and the staff are great.
The New Years Eve party was great, really enjoyed the entertainment and games proved by te staff.
We hope to return to the hotel in the summer.

We have just returned from 5th twixmas holiday with Nova tours this in itself speaks for the good value of this holiday.on arrival there's always a warm welcome with a cup of tea or a mulled wine and warm mince pie its like a family Xmas break as most of us has returned for numerous years,the rooms are very good and spotless,the ensuite bathroom is spacious and modern. The food and service is excellent with a good choice the homemade soup on the first course is one of our favourites,followed by excellent main meals and numerous sweets no one leaves feeling hungry.The nightly entertainment is pretty good although after returning yearly a few of the acts are a bit repetitive, all in all an excellent break from a very friendly and helpful staff.

Thankyou for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your Twixtmas with us once again, Nova have been so inundated with re-bookers that they have booked a second coach to come to us for Twixtmas in 2013. We hope to see you in December for your 6th Twixtmas!

Spent a long weekend here a couple of weeks ago on a Tinsel & Turkey break. I have to say that we had a really great time thanks to the very genuine and most helpful staff. Our party was made up of two couples, our friends together with my wife and I. My wife is disabled and in a wheelchair and although this hotel does not promote itself on the facilites for this, they could not have been more helpfull in ensuring that we were all made to feel special. We haven't laughted so much in quite a while. The room was comfy and warm, the water always hot, the food was excellent and plenty of it, good entertainment in an overall great location. What more could you want? We have travelled considerably over the years to quite a few countries and stayed in all classes of hotel including Hiltons etc., but we have never received the simple quality of service that we did here. Well done Guys!

We have just returned from the Marine,we are full of praise of the hotel and staff,the premises was decorated for the occasion.We had terrible weather for the weekend but the staff and entertainment certainly brightened up our stay.The service of the staff was excellent and the chef s choice was also excellent served hot and plentiful.When leaving our coach had to travel around the block and when we passed the front of the hotel the staff were on the front waving us off,that was a nice touch.Looking forward to returning to the hotel next year.Brenda and Tony H

Room Tip: Room 407 overlooked a quiet park,no noise

Our second visit to the marine and we weren't disappointed. Couldn't fault anything, room wonderful, staff on top form with their cheerfulness and service and food faultless - compliments to the chef. Third trip definitely on the cards !

Room Tip: Won't go wrong with rooms 311 and 312, seaviews excellent
