Just back from spending one night in Marlins Hotel, we were warmly welcomed by Neil lthe owner who had great information on all restaurants around the hotel then given our key to room 12, I had asked for top floor and seaview, this was laughed at and was funny as hotel not on the front, but I always ask, even if no sea within 50 miles !! Neil said there was a seaview if stood high, anyway, we could definately see the sea and we had a laugh. The room was lovely, fresh white bedding, real comfy bed, this room had a double and single bed in the room and plenty of room, there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room and lovely biscuits too. They also supply shower gels and body lotions and the towels are lovely and white and soft too. The bathroom consisted of a shower, toilet and sink, albeit this room was small but how long do you spend in the bathroom, its shower and out and I would rather have a larger bedroom personally. The hotel is is a great location, 10 mins walk and you are at the shops, BIC, Pavillion, beach and the park, there is a vast amount of restaurants and bars in and around the hotel. The breakfast was lovely and cooked to order, fresh and steaming hot, was loads to eat and certainly made us full for othe day. Would definantely stay in this hotel again and you can also park your car at the hotel which is a huge bonus too.
Well done to Neil and his partner who we didnt meet for welcoming us to this hotel.
