“Great Location”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We spent our last two nights in Ireland at the Marine Hotel. We wanted to be near Dublin as well as the airport. What an excellent choice! The staff members were all friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. We ate at the restaurant on site. The food was excellent and very elegantly served. The bar was a fun place to relax and eat. We would definitely stay at the Marine Hotel again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your lovely review of the Marine Hotel.
We are so convenient to the airport but still only 20 minutes by public transport to the city centre!

We look forward to welcoming you again.

Regards,

John Walsh

Spent one night here en route to Howth. The hotel is average, although it has potential to be much better. The reception staff were pleasant and the breakfast adequate. We ate out so don't know about dinner.
This hotel could attract more people if it was developed; it is very accessible in a lovely region close to the sea..

When travelling with my daughter hotels are divided into two. Those who when tidying the room while we're away take care with all the teddies and dolls a young girl needs and those who don't. In the Marine we returned to find all the teddies tucked up in their freshly made bed. It probably added a few minutes to someone's work day but added a lot to my daughter's stay.
It also shows the personal care that our family has come to associate with the Marine.
The room we stayed in was freshly decorated and spotless.
The facilities are lovely and the breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. We stay here a lot and will continue to stay here for the foreseeable future.
It was a real compliment to the hotel to see my daughter's face light up when she saw Cathy on reception because she always makes time for a 'little chat' with her.
Just a great home from home.

Stayed here while attending a funeral so it wasn't going to be relaxing leisure time, but the welcome was good and the room was comfortable. I had a large single room overlooking the back garden and the beach - it was a gorgeous view. Room was stocked with tea/coffee facilities. Large old fashioned TV. Bathroom was fine, towels were small but fluffy. Bed was brilliantly comfy. The pool looks a little on the small side, I was going to swim but the day was lovely so went for a walk instead - went over to the Burrow Road Sutton beach - absolutely lovely. Cousin went down for swim but it was full of pool club swimmers. Breakfast was good, the usual cereals/fruit/yoghurts etc but then a choice of freshly cooked items. I opted for the full Irish - far too meaty for me really but what I ate was tasty! Should have gone for the kippers or scrambled egg which looked great!! Just a mention about Dublin taxi service - I was charged E30 from airport to hotel on the way out because the driver hid his meter, on my return it was E20 - be aware.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the rear, overlooking the beach, on second floor.

Sutton Village is approximately 20 minutes from the city centre, but access is easy with frequent bus services and the Dart train station about 500 metres from the hotel. I loved staying at the Marine Hotel. The room was lovely in an old-fashioned way with a little balony overlooking the beach. The only thing I'd change about the room would be the old fashioned C.R.T. TV set.

The staff were friendly and accommodating and took the time to chat to you. The breakfast was absolutely outstanding. Lovely to be served a piping hot, freshly prepared breakfast rather than the usual morning buffet hassle. Really, really nice.

I really enjoyed my stay in this comfortable, friendly hotel.

We went here for dinner one evening and the food was terrible. Our mains (duck and chicken) tasted the same, there were no distinguishable flavours and the whole thing was bland. The veg was unimpressive too. We complained and got dessert for free, which too, was unimpressive. We are local to the area but will not be returning.
