There's a fine line between "shabby chic" and just plain "shabby" - the Marine has one foot either side of the line.
The rooms in the older part of the hotel are fairly well equipped and pretty comfortable (nice beds), but very small. If your plans involve cat-swinging, you'll be very disappointed. Rooms on the front of the hotel have a sea view in their favour - otherwise you're overlooking the car park and other properties' garages. Rooms in the newer annex at the back are a bit larger (but not much), but lack the character and warmth of the rooms in the older part of the building.
I suggest getting down early for breakfast - all the hot food is out on a buffet, with the usual attendant issues (rubber eggs, beans with a skin on top, nothing as hot as it should be).
