We had a disappointing stay at the Marine Lodge last year but that didn't stop us returning again. We booked last minute but still managed to get a lovely sea view room. The room looked like it had been recently refurbished and was nice and clean. The bathroom was lovely and had a power shower - although it did tend to make chugging noises when the pressure was at a certain point. The bathroom was a little dark and would benefit from some better lighting, but that is only a minor complaint.
We ate in the restaurant one morning and although I think it is overpriced, especially when only ordering a rack of toast and a hot drink, the service was good and the views are lovely. We would have eaten in the restaurant for lunch or dinner but it was often empty so there was no atmosphere, but I know from experience that the food is lovely.
The location of the lodge is fantastic, everything is in walking distance. The on site free car parking is great too, especially as you can use it even after you check out.
All the staff were willing to help with our requests and they all provide great customer service.
My only other complaint is that the maids leave items in the corridors when cleaning rooms which can make passing through the narrow corridors difficult, especially when you have shopping or a suitcase in tow. However, the maids did a great job during our stay, replacing towels and topping up coffee/tea/milk in the room on a daily basis.
Overall a lovely break in a lovely hotel. Fingers crossed we'll be back again next year, hopefully for a longer stay.
