“Lovely comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Great little gem of a hotel.

GOOD POINTS
excellent breakfast
Comfortable room at the front of the hotel no 3 ...... The first room that we saw was at the back, had no view and was a little gloomy
Friendly professional staff
Good fast wifi throughout
Good size hotel car park over the road

BAD POINTS
You need to be good at walking hills, the hotel sits quite high over the town

We had a very pleasant family birthday lunch here. We had been two years ago and decided it was time for a return visit. We were not disappointed. There is a lounge with views out to sea where you sit to wait your table being ready with a drink and choose from the menu. Don't understand why reviews complain about the staff. There were very professional and welcoming and the young man who carved the meat couldn't have been politer. The food was very good. My wife had the terrine which she pronounced excellent as were my whitebait and our son's asparagus. Main course carvery was also very good, although some people might say that the two choices rather than the usual three was a little limited. Only our son could manage a sweet, a large portion of rhubarb and apple crumble! Very fairly priced, attractive décor in the restaurant, and attentive service. Thoroughly enjoyed our time.

Just got back from a three night break at this wonderful hotel. Being February we were not able to take advantage of the wonderful garden and the view from there, but the view from our room was fabulous.
Everything was pristine, breakfast was lovely, staff very helpful and friendly.
I will be recommending this place to friends and family and be coming back in the future.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view, well worth the extra.

I recently visited this hotel, described as "boutique" to me. I had tried to check with the owner before arrival that everything would be fine for my trip and it took him a while to get back to me each time. On arrival, the hotel was just reopening after the Christmas break and there was a sign on the door saying CLOSED. This stayed for a further two days. The carpets were up with tools everywhere, there was a strong smell of paint everywhere - including in my bedroom. The facilities were fine. But I'd recommend staying at Kersbrook down the road, where the people are responsive, there was no mess and confusion and it was very homely. This was my preference by a long way.

MarinersLymeRegis, Owner at Mariners Hotel, responded to this review, February 20, 2014
The Mariners is a beautiful 17c. hotel which had been closed the previous slow week in January, allowing us to redecorate the stairs and landing and fit new carpet at a time not to inconvenience guests.

This guest had called a number of times wanting to check in early in the morning which we helped with and accommodated. The new carpet wasn’t fully fitted when she arrived but was ready for the normal check in time of 2pm.

The closed sign referred to was for the restaurant which re-opened as planned, later in the week. Would we do the same again? Yes, because we have a reputation of being friendly, helpful and giving excellent service as many reviews on this web site testify.

We had an overnight stay here with Sunday lunch the next day. This is a quaint old building with modern amenities such as wi fi in the rooms. The room was bright , airy and beautifully decorated,the bathroom modern and clean. As someone with a bad back the bed is very important and this one was good. The room we had was very quiet. The views from the back rooms ,lounge and dining room are fantastic. There is a pretty garden.The car park is large and only over the road. It is a short down hill walk to the town centre which obviously makes it up hill on the way back, but my husband and I did not find it hard and both of us are over 70. Service was excellent and friendly.
The only difficulty with this delightful Inn might be for any one with limited mobility as the stairs are steep and narrow.Highly recommended.

.....with what has been said about the "2013 Christmas Break at the Mariners". My wife and stayed for 3 nights over the Christmas period, and it's lovely to be able to to tell Stuart and his staff how much we really enjoyed the experience. Hospitality genuinely given is a pretty precious commodity, and at Christmas time even more so, so thank you all for looking after us so well! Food was a delight; imaginative and beautifully cooked, and it was no surprise to see the locals filling all available tables for Christmas Lunch. A Christmas to remember!

We have had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel several times during the past few years.
Our last visit was a 2 night break between Christmas and New Year's. As with our previous visits, everything was superb! Comfortable room, terrific service, friendly staff (esp Les, Lynn and Stuart), wonderful food (thanks Richard and Steve) and the fabulous location of Lyme Regis.
We will be returning! A Corsham Couple
