The Marine Hotel
Ranked #3 of 20 Hotels in Whitby
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2009

The Marine is a restaurant located on the harbourside of Whitby, and we leaned that they also have four suites to rent above. As a surprise, my mother in law and her husband rented my husband and I a suite for our wedding night.

This was, by far, the nicest place I've ever stayed in my life. It's smart, it's fabulous, and everything I could have wanted or needed was in the room, not just there, but done well.

The view of the old city from a room decorated in a contemporary style somehow blended together seamlessly. The staff treated us like friends, and made sure that we were taken care of. I loved it, loved it , loved it, and recommend it to anyone.

This hotel is absolutely perfect for a short break away. From the moment we arrived until the second we left we loved everything about The Marine.

Check in was the most chilled out experience ever - felt like we were arriving at a friends house. I'd booked room 4 (the Louis 15th room) and everything about the room was just perfect - one of the nicest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. Because this is a small family business and the hotel only has four rooms, every attention is paid to detail and you really feel like you're getting the personal touch.

The location of the hotel couldn't be better. I wanted somewhere central, and you really can't get any more central than the Marine. It's right on the Harbour front just down from the Magpie Cafe (we had an excellent evening meal here), with lots of really nice bars within stumbling distance. We haven't been to Whitby for about a year and couldn't believe how much it's changed in that time - there are quite a few new trendy (champagne) bars and seafood restaurants which have sprung up in this short time. This suited our tastes perfectly.

It's not the cheapest of hotels, but worth every penny in my book. I sure we will return again and again, if only to experience all of the different rooms. The break was totally romantic (you can even gaze up to the castle whilst your in the double ended bathtub) and I cannot fault a second of it. The breakfasts were amazing, with an excellent (posh!) choice.

We ate in the hotel on the second night (which seemed very busy all of the time), and again the meal was amazing. You must try the fishcake for starter, absolutely delicious.

I can't be glowing enough about this hotel. I am positive that you will enjoy it as much as we did.

We booked this hotel last minute for the Goth Weekend in Whitby. The rooms looked great on the website, and when we arrived we weren't disappointed. We stayed in Room 3, which they describe as 'Striking Gothic Splendour', which is a terrible description!! The main colour of the decor is a striking black, but gothic it clearly is not! More French Boudoir - though I could clearly tell this from looking at the pictures online before I booked it and it was a really lovely room. The decor and furnishings are to a high standard and a great deal of thought has gone into the room, it really is beautiful and worth the £140 a night price tag. The only thing to perhaps watch out for was the room was described as having a harbour view, which it did, but I was expecting it to be looking out over the harbour, rather it is at the side of the building - still this doesn't really detract from the room or spoil the stay.

The service at the hotel was excellent, the staff were very pleasant- tea and coffee facilities were not available in the room, but there was a 24 hour room service for complimentry tea and coffee, and the service was very quick. The included breakfast was fantastic! The menu selection was huge and when the food arrived, it was of a very high quality, we couldn't fault it. On one of the nights we were there, we ate in the restaurant, again the food was lovely and the service was very good.

The only issue I can really comment on was the door was very difficult to open and lock - but this would be easily rectified. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay.
