    Incredible staff, but disappointed with room

    The marine hotel is on a good location. Unfortunately though we were kept awake by the local foot traffic who were quite loud. Our room was a disabled suite, but I am not sure how a disabled person would even access it easily as it’s at the end of the building. The shower set up was terrible with a thigh high shower screen that was difficult to open. Cap that off with stone cold water, it left a less than desirable shower experience. However despite that issue the staff were absolutely incredible and bent over backwards. The restaurant made a special meal for us all as we had allergies, it was absolutely delicious and would love to say that it is definitely worth eating there. The location near the beach and marina is beautiful. All in all though a bit too expensive for the quality of room.

    Great stay...I'll definitely return

    Fantastic stay at the marine hotel. Stayed in the Lir Suite. Nicest hotel room with the most beautiful view of Fairhead.

    Good Value for Money

    We had a lovely stay for a great price (member secret price). Although the rooms are basic, they are very clean and are equipped with everything you'd need. The done was beautiful in the restaurant with a good selection of cocktails. The breakfast service was a bit slow and they ran put of things. Would definitely recommend and will be back again in the future. The Sea view room didn't disappoint and the location is very central.

    Not what was expected

    Very busy on arrival as a warm day and on the seaside. Parking was next to the hotel but £5 for 24 hrs, we were told there was parking but cost not explained. Asked about dinner and told a la carte menu was available however the dining experience was no more appealing than Butlins or Hi de Hi. Hard surfaces and noise gave the dining a nil point from us. Add to that the lack lustre food both at dinner and breakfast was not up to standard. Sea view room was comfortable but as to sanitised I am not sure, children’s fingerprints were on the bottom of the mirror and window. Staff cleaned the tables but did not clean the arms of the chairs or seat squabs. No smoking room? Why the cigarette stub on the outside windowsill One plus point is that the staff were incredibly friendly and I am sure they have been a terribly tough time, hats off to them.

    the most delicious mussels

    We had a wonderful overnight stay at the marine hotel - the room was lovely with a sea view - even though the hotel was on a main Street we heard no noise from outside. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a delicious meal - the mussels- omg the mussels were the best I’ve ever tasted and we are big mussels fans. It’s worth a trip just for them. The hotel was very clean and all covid regulations were strictly adhered to. Face coverings were worn by all staff members and guests. Vacated tables were swiftly cleaned and the bar/restaurant was well socially-distanced. Overall a lovely place to stay in a lively wee seaside town.
