“Very hard to fault”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The location is idyllic, perfectly placed right on the harbour. Parking is slightly difficult, you need to park on an on-street loading space, take your cases to the hotel and then park the car a few hundred yards away on the street, once the time limited spaces expire.

The hotel is probably better described as a restaurant with rooms, that is not to decry the service in any way, moreover to stress just how good the restaurant is. The welcome is very warm, tea and coffee are available by room service free of charge. The rooms are great, we stayed in room 3, friends in room 4, both beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Room 4 has a feature bath and clearly has an edge.

In the daytime and evening, there is relaxed live music from a number of artists, using the electric piano. We loved it, very relaxing, very entertaining. The food in the restaurant is not surprisingly fish focussed, given that the trawlers are tied up just outside. It is well priced, well delivered, and quite contemporary. The breakfast was one of the best that I have ever come across, very varied, great quality. Eggs Benedict was a real winner.

Probably not a good choice for any disabled travellers, the access and parking would be challenging. There were some children in the restaurant, who seemed to enjoy the experience just as well as the adults.

Room Tip: Definitely room 4, top floor, feature bath, beautiful.

If you like seafood then try the Marine, scallops, crab and salmon starters. Then the main event shell fish linguini and enormous Dover sole perfectly cooked. Dining room a bit basic but the live music, food and service more than made up for this

Room - great views, relaxing layout and great shower. Only slight faults were a dirty towel, which was very quickly sorted with genuine apologies and bright light underneath door at night, which was quickly covered by using a cushion. Very minor considering the rest of the experience.
Staff - absolutely brilliant and couldn't have done anything more. They are a credit to The Marine and probably some of the best I've experienced.
Food - the breakfasts are varied (I had kedgeree and my partner a full English), beautifully prepared and delightful to taste.
We stayed in Room 1 and while the price (£150) was expensive, the staff, views, room and breakfast probably justified it.
Would I go back - definitely and I'd highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Don't miss breakfast

We were fortunate to have organised our wedding reception at the Marine a year ago today so going back was potentially going to be a risky venture. We needn't havw worried everything was as good as we remembered.

The food,service and comfort was as before truly exceptional. Once again Chloe thanks to you and your team for making our first anniversary such a memorable one!

If great service, fresh seafood imaginatively presented and beautifully cooked is your thing then The Marine will not leave you disappointed.We eat here regularly and always enjoy our meal.An added bonus is the great range of aperitifs and cocktails if you fancy one and all expertly mixed.

We stayed in room 3 on a Sunday night and couldn't have been more impressed with everything in the hotel. The view over the harbour from the window is outstanding, the room was so comfortable with everything anyone could ever need.
It was great to call in the morning and get a fresh coffee delivered to your room 2 minutes later at no extra charge.
The breakfast was out of this world with proobably too much choice!!
We ate in the restaurant on the Sunday evening and have to say that the seafood was delicious, we were thoroughly spoiled with oysters, lobster and fresh fish.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone and am looking for an excuse to go back now!

Room Tip: Room 3 was comfy with a lovely view.

The food and the staff were excellent!
Unfortunately the rooms are very tired, broken lock on door, torn dirty sofa and the MOST uncomfortable mattress!
Has issues with sound proofing too, or lack of! Woken at 6am by the sound of people using a bathroom/toilet above our room
