We love North Berwick and have visited it for decades now. We stayed in the Marine hotel last October (2015). Our recent visit, with friends, was in March 2016. In general the hotel was nice. The staff were friendly, the sea view room was quite small but everything worked so was ok, The swimming pool and facilities were very nice...

Lovely building Great location but staff are slow to respond to requests. Breakfast excellent and surroundings were smashing. More fir kids to be amused would have been useful as weather was poor. Overall, good stay

I love going to North Berwick and I enjoy the Marine Highland Hotel, it usually gives me a feeling of relaxation the moment I walk through the door, not this time the desk staff ignored me as I approached the desk, a simple "I'll be with you in a moment" and a smile is all I needed. as I do...

Plus side first: Swimming pool excellent, breakfast v nice and function rooms perfect for occasion But ... no wireless connection over the stay (despite lots of attempts), rest of thermal suite was poor - steam room cool and design of outdoor section is fine if you like permanent splashes in your face. Got a road view room (I did not...

Location is excellent and staff are very helpful. A Nice relaxing atmosphere, lot of space and direct access to the green space at the back which over looks the sea. Seemed a bit understaffed at breakfast, but the scrambled eggs were real and very tasty,

We have had a wonderful weekend at Macdonald Marine. The room was great and the view spectacular. We couldn't fault the food or the service and the thermal suite was bliss. North Berwick itself is also a lovely town. Just a perfect place to relax and recharge.

A good hotel in a nice location. Very welcoming staff at reception and through out the hotel. Did not use the restaurant as we were eating out the one night we stayed. Would definately stay at this hotel again.

We enjoyed our stay and I'm sure my mother would love it, but we are young 50 year olds who don't play golf and wanted something a bit more for the high price we paid - but its all a bit tired and service is standard. Spa was good but apart from the steam and saunas, nothing special. The view...
