Reviewed 26 June 2011

Great hotel, reasonably priced.
Restaurant meals were supurb
Accross the road from the marina so a nice outlook and great spot for a small walk, close to good pubs (Jenny Watts for a great Guiness).

Room Tip: Ask for a marina view room

Stayed for two nights last weekend in a party of women( ranging in age from 26 to 66) celebrating an aunt's 60th birthday. From check in to check out found the service impeccable- nothing was too much trouble, including printing out a boarding card for my return flight back to Manchester. Despite the fact that they had a large wedding and a 50th Wedding anniversary event running simulataneously, the food and service in the restaurant was second to none., for both breakfast and the table d'hote in the evening.(Go hungry though, portions are generous) Have stayed in more up market hotels across Europe and can't compare the level of care and attention, from the chambermaids through to the reception staff. Although the decor is a little tired in the communal areas it was clean and bright, as were the rooms.Nothing was too much trouble. Beds so comfy didn't hear the nightclub. Bar a bit noisy in the evening, but drinks in the comforttable foyer were a good replacement, allowing us to gawp athe the attire of the wedding guests toing and froing to smoke.

Room Tip: Book early to get room with a sea view.

I cant recommend this hotel any higher for weddings. Our was on 26 March 2011 and we were treated like royalty from the minute we walked threw the door. The staff are absolutely fantastic (martha is exceptional she was our wedding co-ordindator at the hotel), nothing was a problem to them and if you asked for something it was done straight away!! As for our meal well ALL of our guests complimented it on how their meat just fell apart and how hot it all was when they received it (we had 100 guests and i would say that would be hard to do but they managed it). They took all the stress out of arranging our reception as martha just seemed to read my mind and know exactly wat i wanted. The rooms are magnificent and very very clean. Anyone who is looking around for a reception i would say to you look no further as you couldnt get better than the Marine Court!!!!!

My partner and I stayed for one night as part of a special offer the hotel was running in conjunction with a newspaper, and were delighted to be upgraded to a suite. The Carnalea Suite was really like a family room - one large double bed and two single beds. However it was impossible to see the television from the double bed. At least it was movable!
The bed was so comfortable and warm - possibly too warm as we move into the warmer weather, perhaps bedding of a lower tog rating would have been available had we asked. The view was over a number of rooftops at close proximity, on which pigeons congregate in large numbers. This discouraged me from wanting to open the window. However it was possible to see the sea beyond this.
Regarding cleanliness and maintenance, the Marine Court could do better. There was a small hole burnt in the net curtain and some wax apparent on the carpet. There was also a whitish stain on the information leaflet rack. The bathroom was clean, but is tired in appearance. The wall tiles appeared grubby with some browning round the edges.
The hotel is right at Bangor seafront, so is well placed to visit the numerous tourist attractions, restaurants and shops Bangor boasts, yet a safe distance away from the busy Main Street hiving with life from pubs and clubs on many nights of the week. The Marine Court does have its own nightclub however we did not experience any problems with this as we were on the top floor.

I would highly recommend the Marine Court for weddings, and indeed any other function. The staff did their utmost to ensure our wedding day was perfect, and went out of their way to accommodate our guests. The rooms, food and service were fantastic and we will definitely go back. I would highly recommend this venue for weddings, functions or indeed just for a getaway.

My husband and I have been coming to stay at the Marine Court Hotel now for 10 years, from when we where just a couple to actually being married. In fact its where we choose to have our wedding reception on 21st April 2007. As always the hotel itself has wonderful friendly staff who are always willing to please. The food is outstanding and you are spoilt for choice the the menu selection. The leisure facilities with the pool and gym are great, and bar Mocha is a wonderful place up a knees up and place to party the night away. The room are so luxurious and the best room in the house where my husband and I stayed for his 39th birthday even has remote controlled lights and yes even a TV with remote in the bathroom!!!!! The staff treat you so well, we got champagne, with truffle chocolates on arrival in our room and best yet was the lovely rose petals scattered on our bed, as I said no detail is left unturned. A truly amazing hotel from beginning to end, well done Marine Court Hotel as always. Will see you in April 2011 for our 4th Wedding anniversary, cant wait.

Read all the review's on this hotel and was excited to book our 30th wedding anniversary on valentines day, Well we where that there was no recognition of our special occasion whats so ever and where given the worst table in the restaurant right back by the kitchen doors where the waiters would make a symphony of noise stacking teapots.
First the good: Great bed, friendly restaurant staff, great location and reasonably priced.
Now the bad: Unfriendly loud front desk staff, internet pictures alot nicer than reality night club had a rather rough crowd.
Would stay here again if we need to visit Bangor again but not for a special occasion.
