Great location, great views...

Hotel is old looking on the outside in keeping with the area but super modern and nice in the rooms.

Fantastic for and the same goes for the service!

The view at this hotel is tremendous - especially as the sun was shining! (unusual for Scotland).
The room was fine apart from the carpet was a bit marked. Shower was good. I was disappointed. At the lack of a fry up as this is a treat for me when I am away and I was so looking forward to a "heart attack on a plate, full blown, Scottish fried brekky"
Parking in the immediate area is free if you can find a place. Being a real ale aficionado I was pleased to see a great selection of real ales on tap and a huge bottled beer selection also.

Staff were really nice and friendly also.

I really enjoyed staying at the Marine Hotel. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal, and the food was wonderful. The amazing range of Belgian beers were delicious, and the beer recommendations on the menu with each meal are a nice touch. The whisky menu is also extensive. The location is perfect making for fabulous views. The rooms have some helpful mod cons such as an ipod dock and a coffee machine. The bathrooms are modern and my room had a nice big bath and hot shower. There is plenty of spare warm bedding to make things cosy, and my room had a sofa too. There are some really easy improvements that could be made, which would make a big difference to the perceived quality. For example, when I stayed the servicing of the room was a bit random - I didn't get top ups of milk and bottled water every day, and I did run out of coffee. The toilet roll was not topped up so that I did run out; bit embarrassing to have to ask for more toilet roll. It would also be nice to have hot chocolate as well as coffee and tea to make in the rooms. Others have commented on the breakfast, but I found the breakfast fine; cereals, toast, hot drinks and some pastries were on offer as well as fresh fruit every day. Works fine for me!

The Marine is a quaint small hotel (6 bedrooms) with an excellent bar (6 real ales last week),and an excellent evening menu. The rooms are all well appointed with nice bathrooms,. although my room carpet was very badly stained. Also, I nearly got locked in as the door lock was faulty, and nobody could get it open. The room was called "Lucifer", and the door suddenly opened after a number of attempts!
All rooms (I think) have a lovely view of the harbour. However for £90 B&B, I would expect a cooked breakfast. There is no breakfast menu whatsoever, and the "Continental breakfast" is very basic.

For a £110 a night I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

The staff were not attentive. Carpets were filthy. Bar was noisy. Breakfast was awful. No dedicated reception. No binbags in bin or milk for the coffee. All the little things make to be one big problem.

Bed was comfy. Bathroom clean; nice shower.

I stay in the marine regularly on business. This hotel is very very good.

Rooms great- some have excellent bathrooms

Food - fanastic range. Only comments are that service finishes quite early. Also can be expensive. Breakfast is continental, I like this but at times a good cooked breakfast would be nice.

Staff- never had any issues. Always good service.
