At The Marine I really enjoyed my stay it was a perfect getaway.

2015-05-18

Stunning hotel, the best part of which is the location. The views were not as great as I expected but part of this is due to the fact that the hotel is very old but with this the rooms are extremely spacious. We had drinks in the lounge which was wonderful but was a bit surprised they charged for the "complimentary" bar snacks.
