We (my husband and I) spent last weekend at the Marine and it was a highlight.
From check in to check out there was not a single thing we could fault.
The suite was just perfect with a spectacular view of the bay and the whales which we were so lucky to observe. What a privilege to stand at the window and see them so close at hand - it was thrilling.
The staff were attentive and efficient and willing to go the extra mile.
The food in both restaurants - The Pavilion and the Seafood was excellent and the service likewise.
Breakfast each day was a treat - we were wanting for nothing.
During the weekend my husband celebrated his birthday and a charming touch was a plate of sweetmeats placed in the room with birthday greetings - much appreciated.
All in all a lovely weekend with the cherry on the top having our car washed before we departed - a most thoughtful gesture.
We will definitely return, sooner hopefully rather than later!!!
