“A real gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Just returned from a nights stay here. We were in room 2 and it was fabulous!! Alot better than we expected - fabulous decor, great size and real luxury! Wonderful view over the harbour, very romantic. We do enjoy staying in lovely hotels and we did enjoy this one. We ordered room service and drinks to the room. The quality was absolutely fantastic and the staff were so helpful.We had the lobster and dressed crab for lunch - absolutely delicious and very fresh! For dinner we had the fish pie and whitby scampi - again absolutely delicious. They where very quick with all services, and provided us with ice and glasses for our own wine. We really enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to returning! A little more expensive than other B&B's in the area, but its more like a boutique hotel experience and DEFINATELY worth paying the bit extra. It was a real treat! Thank you

We stayed in room 2 which was just amazing .The staff were great nothing was to much trouble ,all very pleasant . The whole place was tastefully decorated and spotless .The restaurant was very busy at night and the food was fantastic and very reasonably priced. The breakfast menu is extensive and again the food was lovely . We will certainly be staying at the marine again ,

We have just returned from our stay in Room 1 and can honestly say that we absolutely love this place! Our room had a lovely balcony with great views directly overlooking the harbour - perfect for eating our fish & chips while people watching! The cooked breakfast menu is extensive - we settled on the full English, and it was very tasty and cooked to perfection. Staff here are all very pleasant and helpful. We have stayed here previously in Room 2, and that was equally lovely - perhaps even more so because of the mezzanine level bedroom. A big recommendation - we will definitely stay here again in the future!

We stayed in Room 3, Stayed 3 nights in March. Fab room and bathroom; lovely view from windows. Staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast very good. It is a little bizarre really - The Marine is not a Hotel in the usual way but the rooms are lovely. The restaurant on the ground floor is extremely popular, we had a meal on one of the nights - meal fine but tables were far too close - unable to talk to each other as next table could hear everything we said !!!
Entrance to your room is via a side door. Folks constantly left the catch up on the door which would enable anyone to enter and gain access to upstairs. The responsible guests did drop the catch so that you could enter with your key.
One night we heard someone banging on the sidedoor after midnight - as husband is a light sleeper he went down to investigate and let them in. ~ The catch on the door had been dropped so that you could not use your key. This business of access in and out needs some thought as really it only works as it should if you have sensible and responsible guests. A night receptionist would sort it - a nice temporary job for a student! I would go back to The Marine to stay but my husband was a bit un-nerved by the lack of security and would not go back.

I treated my boyfriend to one night at this little gem of a place in the heart of Whitby. It was recommended to me by a friend with good taste, so I knew I was on a winner. It isn't a big grand place, it's small and quaint but it has a huge personality and lots of character. The food was superb, with an amazing selection of fish and seafood, even my meat eating bf found something he liked. The room was stunning, we stayed in room 4 with the mezzanine bedroom and a well kitted out lounge, we had our own little balcony too. I think I have read that some of the rooms have a 'trendy' doorless bathroom....this definitely DID have a door....phew! It was a cold windy night when we arrived, which only heightened the coziness of the room and the hotel, we loved it. The staff also were really welcoming, friendly and helpful. I can't fault it - oh actually I have just remembered, there were no tea and coffee making facilities, but seriously if that's the only critisism I have.....that's not bad going. Breakfast was fabulous too....can you tell we loved it..? Huge recommendation, as a hotel and a restaurant.

Room Tip: I think rooms 3 and 4 have the sea view...... and make sure you get a door on the bathroom

Stayed for three nights and what a lovely place to stay,the food is fantastic, we ate all three bites there as no other place served nicer food and had really lovely staff . Our in-laws stayed at another hotel at the same time but really wanted to be in the marine with us. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a lovely short romantic break away.thank you guys we will all be rebooking again soon.Mr and Mrs broughton Leeds

We chose this hotel for 2 nights away with friends after reading the recent reviews on Tripadvisor and they were exactly right. The location is great. We had rooms 1 and 2 which are lovely with fantastic views. The food at the hotel is high quality, both breakfast and dinner. The comments about the friendly staff are spot on - all the staff are smashing, very helpful, sociable, professional. They make the stay a pleasure. Music also very good and we'd recommend a visit to the Moon and Sixpence also. We'd recommend this hotel and will stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 &2 have great views
