Just returned from an overnight stay at the Marine. Overall we had a lovely time, check in was very efficient, our room was on the small side but perfectly adequate and modern. Our meal in Two Fat Ladies was very nice, wine well chilled. I too noticed that the side plates did not match but sensed it was deliberate and gave added charm. They were old fashioned china side plates that you would have got when you went to your Granny's for tea, very quaint! Why no 5 star rating you ask?
WELL..... When we adjourned to the Arran Lounge after dinner, we requested a wine list to view the selection of wine on offer prior to ordering whatever took our fancy. The barman responded that they did not have a wine list, what kind of wine would we like!!!!! I find it incredible and unacceptable that a hotel of this stature could not provide a wine list in their lounge bar. They serve bar meals here too but no wine list to choose a bottle of wine with your meal! We were so astounded that we left without having a drink, their loss on the price of a bottle of wine.
I would ask that management explain why this is not on offer and also that this policy is reviewed, otherwise we would be unlikely to return, which would be a shame as up to this point we could not fault anything at all.
Oh and breakfast next day was enjoyable, a short wait for a table as they were very busy, but this was well managed.
