The only reason I do not give this place 5 stars is the fact that the lifts were both out of order! Not good especially as golfers arrived with bags etc. That said we had a very enjoyable night in room 117- which has a lovely view over golf course to sea. Hotel feels cosy and welcoming. Lovely views from...

Lift out of order and we were on the third floor. We would have expected that a hotel of the calibre of Macdonald' s should have been able to have rectified this sooner. Otherwise our stay was very pleasant.

Very well placed hotel, with beautiful view and an easy access to the beach if you want to enjoy a walk while enjoying the view of the sea. The town is really small but don't forget a boat tour at the Seabird centre.

Staff were very friendly and helpful especially at reception as 2 of our party had cycled to the hotel. Bikes sorted with no fuss what so ever. We arrived early and though we couldn't book in we were assured that we could still have full access to all facilities.

Good location within easy 15 minute walk into town and a short drive to lots of nearby golf courses (or a 5 minute walk to the excellent North Berwick links. As hotel is obviously used by lots of golfers, a drying room would be a welcome addition. Overall, very enjoyable stay.

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...

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...

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,
