Attending a training course with 8 others, the staff have been very helpful, changing pillows to non allergy ones for some of us wasn't a problem. Last night at dinner one person asked for a slight variation of her meal, again no drama. Waiters etc, were very helpful suggesting wines. Basically, everyone has been so friendly, my room is lovely...

The location of the hotel is possible the best thing about it. First impressions when we entered our standard room was dirt marks on the carpet and a very very small bed! The spa was good but the facial I had was very impersonal. Drinks at the bar were expensive. We booked 3 nights diner and although the service was...

Just enjoyed another stay at the Macdonald Marine. The first room we were given 314 , do not request this as this is an attic room, with a water pipe running around the skirting board, and the eves of the roof are at the bottom of the bed, so very easy to bump your head. We asked to change rooms...

We were given a gift of a one night 'It is on' voucher for this hotel, & booked a second night ourselves. We were upgraded to an executive room. Beautiful big room on the ground floor. Bay window with a fantastic view over the Forth estuary. The dinner & breakfast were lovely, but we thought that the cream tea was...

Booked this break through my hotel breaks. Disappointed with room om third floor overlooking car park. Workman upgrading sea view rooms on this floor so had to step over tools in corridor. Hotel was verybusy so no other rooms available. Room VERY small and claustrophobic. Bed was a basic double.

We arrived at the marine hotel full of great expectations having previously heard how wonderful it was. The nights stay was a christmas gift from family. We were allocated room 310 a dreadfully small and depressed looking room....make sure you dont accept it if id allocated to you! There were cobwebs on ceiling..cracks in the wallpaper..dirty bed base..and a toilet...

Going to launch in to breakfast first, amazing! Great views from the restaurant, opted for the full Macdonald breakfast and was so no disappointed. The black pudding was outstanding! The whole experience was great but that will always stay in my mind, I would say stay just so you get to taste it the next morning! Dinner on the Friday...
