My friend and I have just had an overnight stay here. We were very impressed with the hotel. The lounge areas are plentiful and very comfortable. The ambience is very relaxed and with beautiful views over the golf course on to the sea a stay at this hotel makes for a very pleasant break. The staff were extremely helpful and...

Stayed at the Macdonald Marine Hotel for 1 night for a short break to see the wonderful East coast. Having stayed there several years before we were keen to visit again. We had booked a room through a popular booking website but we did not have breakfast or dinner included. 3 days before our stay we checked again and Macdonald...

First tip: it is worth paying for a room with a view out across the golf course to the coast beyond (all of 400 metres) - that alone will make your trip and stay worthwhile no matter what the weather. We had a Feature King room and, even though the hotel had not made it up to a twin as...

What can I say about the Marine! It's location is awesome and the views are tremendous looking out over the golf course and out to sea to Craigleith Island. The hotel itself is however a bit jaded. It really does need an overhaul to modernise and clean up around the edges. We arrived at 1430hrs to check in for a...

Stayed for an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast birthday treat with my husband. I had booked online and upgraded to an Executive Room as I had heard the views onto the course/beach were fantastic. On arrival we were given a room overlooking the car park. I queried this and was told that the Executive rooms were not overlooking that side...

Had a lovely overnight stay here. The reception area is spacious with ample seating allowing views over the nearby golf course and the sea. Check in was straight forward and quick. Our room was spacious with a comfortable king size bed, comfy chairs at the window and a spacious bathroom with separate bath and shower. The view was similar to...

This was a gift from my Daughter for us at Xmas. A one night stay with Dinner, bed and breakfast plus a cream tea. We arrived to find we were on the third floor and the lift out of order.
