My husband, I and our two teenage children stayed in the Marine Court Hotel in Bangor in July this year and we used same to visit Belfast and Titanic Centre. The hotel is beautifully located overlooking Bangor Marina which provides lovely walks and fantastic views across over to Larne. It is worthwhile getting a front room with balcony doors. Anyhow, kids had a twin room to side of hotel which was well furnished and clean. We had a rear room but there was a damp smell in same. The staff could not have been more helpful to us when we pointed out this. Unfortunately because it was high season the hotel was fully booked on the Sat night but they gave us an up-grade on following night and a discount on room rate. They supplied a bottle of wine on the Saturday to soften the inconvenience!. I could not recommend the staff highly enough, especially Janet in Reception. The dining room is beautiful over looking the harbour with lovely breakfast which set us up for the day. We booked here because it had swimming pool and we were not disappointed. It is a great place to sight see Belfast from and retreat in the evening. When we were there in July there was a Fun Fair set up on the Marina and there is a superb play park for younger kids. There are plenty of eateries in Bangor itself. We would definitely book here again should we be in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms to front overlooking the harbour are lovely. To be fair it is stated that there is music on S...

The hotel is a nice place to stay. The furniture in the room is a bit outdated, old. The views are very nice and Bangor is a great place to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. It has no A/C, but didn't bother us as the weather didn't require any. The pubs in this area are quite nice. Overall, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street for best views.

Stayed in the hotel on the bank holiday weekend.(August)
My father had sailed up from Dublin and was in the marina opposite the hotel. The hotel was ideally located to all shops cafes and bars. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was good. In the restaurant we had dinner and the waitress named Racheal was so friendly and full of Irish charm very pleasant girl which makes ones experience perfect.
Everyone working there was lovely. Would go back there without a doubt. Loves it and loves Bangor.

The real problem here is that Bangor doesn't have any central well-known hotel brands. This hotel and the Royal beside it are the only hotels in town and suffer from comparison to the Clandeboye Lodge out-of-town which is undoubtedly nicer but not central. We needed to be in town for a birthday party at a local restaurant and the Marine Court was completely fine. We weren't there for a hotel break. Having said that, the receptionist was extremely friendly, the room was satisfactory (in fact, the bed was very comfy), and we heard absolutely no noise from the club which others have mentioned. Maybe it was quieter because we were on the 4th floor. The highlight, however, was the breakfast which was plentiful, freshly made and served with a smile. The breakfast room was lovely with good views of the sea. A very pleasant night away and we will stay again given the lack of choice in central Bangor.

Room Tip: Maybe the higher floors are quieter.

Colleagues and I were discussing trip advisor on a recent stay and decided to look up recent reviews of the hotel we were staying in. If trip advisor is to be relied on (and I am a bit dubious, therefore first review) - it must be fair. The staff here is excellent which is the most important thing in the hospitality industry. A warm welcome on arrival, an explanation of all services and directed to my room. The corridors as someone rightly pointed out are in dark uninviting colours but my bedroom was clean, fresh, nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed. We had a beautiful meal served by very attentive staff on the first evening of our stay. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of items to choose from. The gym and swimming pool are an added bonus and a rarity in most places I stay. I am rating this on the excellent 'service' I received. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. I was made feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Front rooms have best view

I stayed on 15 Aug 13 in room 406. The staff were all very pleasent and the meal that evening was excellent. Thanks for organising my continental breakfast for 05.30am

I had an early night due to an early rise the next morning but had little sleep. The noise from the night clubs and late night/ early morning clubbers is dreadful. The room is dated (not like the photos shown and in need of a good clean, the bed was two singles pused together (zip and link bed) but unfortunatly it was very uncomfortable especially if you were in the middle. The hotel wifi is very hit and miss and ended up using the free service form the Town Council.

Sadly I did not have time to look at the pool etc so I cannot coment on this. However not a good stay for my first trip to Bangor
