Attended a wedding here. Food and service both brilliant, as was the organisation making the wedding run smoothly. Staff friendly and helpful too.

The Marine Hotel is right on the sea front. We had a sea view room. The rooms are clean and has every amenity including coffee making facility. We had the breakfast included option which was excellent. A good choice of foods and we opted for the English breakfast which was large. Cereals, fruit, toasts available as well. The place is...

We came here with family on 12th March for my husbands birthday lunch. The whole venue was busy busy! And the hotel decor, beautiful! And so we had high expectations for a lovely lunch. Once seated in the restaurant, we gave our drinks orders and perused the lunch menus - which was a set menu for adults; £17.50 for two... More

This is my only reason for ever going to Tankerton. I can't say that I have ever stayed overnight but I have called in many times for a coffee and a quick bite to eat. The setting is fantastic. You cannot get much closer to the sea without getting your feet wet. The decor is pleasant and all is very... More

Not usually keen on visiting hotel restaurants, we were encouraged by close family's experience here. Visited on a Saturday night and found the ambience mixed - a family party was taking place within the restaurant and there were a number of couples dining - and all went well. The menu was briefer than I would have liked but the food... More

First of all I have been coming here for years and all the staff have been so friendly. I've been ill for a couple of months so haven't been able to venture out. Upon being better I thought to myself let's go to the marine for a spot of lunch and I wish I never. The food was dreadful. I... More

Visited for an excellent lunch and went back the following day for just a morning coffee. Meal was excellent and the service just right. No body hovering at the table which suited us.

We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and made to feel very welcome. We had a spacious nicely decorated room with a balcony overlooking the sea. Unfortunately it wasn't warm enough to sit outside. Large comfy lounge area downstairs. We had a really good breakfast. About 20 minutes walk to the harbour and town. Would definitely recommend this hotel... More

There fillet steak in the Restaurant is the best in town, as a pub in the winter you can sit in front of there log fire or in the summer you can sit out the front and look out to sea and let the world go by.

We regularly have breakfast after a walk with the dog in Tankerton so decided to go "up market" and try the Marine. They accommodate dogs so that was a bonus. We had been impressed by the coffee on previous occasions so went the whole hog and went for full English. Disappointing....asked for brown toast and white toast....cheap bread served, two... More
