I confess that I visit this hotel often due to business, nevertheless from the 1st visit some 3 years ago until now, and I visit about 6 or 7 times a year, fortunately some things never change, a good and excellent welcome. The reception, gymnasium and housekeeping staffs do make a difference for what at times the property may let you down from an eye pleasing and good hospitality experience perspectives. Nevertheless I found it to be very clean and well maintained overall. We have to take into consideration that it is a large property and up keeping this size of property comes at a price, if at the same time the room prices are to be competitive in order to maintain profitability and value for money. Could it do with a revamp? Of course! Who wouldn’t like to revamp this beautiful property!? Nevertheless, the executive rooms and suites are of good size, very well furnished, most bathrooms are good and some may need some or little TLC. Prices are extremely reasonable for its location and facilities. Good hospitality experiences are something that we all enjoy and expect to be of a good standard for our hard earned monies, although some of these experiences can only be as good as the people behind running the ship. The let down here are some of the restaurant staff and the variety of food, as much at breakfast than at dinner. You can have a nice basket of fresh, shiny and juicy apples and fresh fruit, but you need to ensure that there are no rotten pieces in the basket, as this endangers what it could be a brilliant and tasteful experience. When I book into hotels and regardless of their price, stars or forks, I would like to be looked after and ensure that I will always remember them for the right reasons. Personally my priorities have become swimming before and after work, rather that being fed by some sergeants who I don’t appreciate first thing in the morning or early evening. All to be said, not all the restaurant staff fall under the same description! Some are superbly well mannered and attentive. Putting these inexperienced and wrongly managed creatures aside (sorry, but is the truth), I can’t leave unmentioned the bar staff who compensates for it, they are very good. If you carry with you a rotten apple detector and some expertise in how to ignore it, your stay at The Marine Court Hotel will be unforgettable. As a whole they deserve 10 out of 10. Oh! To the designer of the custom jewellery exhibiting and selling at the reception, would you be so nice as to do something for us men? Thank you. Please don’t stop creating! You’re brilliant. I do buy things regularly from your display as presents!
