Hotels in Whitby - The Marine Hotel

We review our meal at The Marine, Whitby - Read what we thought....

We had a luscious evening meal at The Marine in Whitby...

The Marine, more formally known as 'The Marine Hotel', is one of the newer and smarter hotels in Whitby, located right on the harbourside.

We stepped inside, and were immediately impressed by the smart, modern decor in purple and white. It looked very stylish and sophisticated, and had a light, airy feel.

A piano sits to one side - this is a piano bar, with live music on many nights of the week (although unfortunately not on the night we visited).

There was an attractive and pervading scent of lilies, emanating from the several gorgeous flower arrangements on tables, windowsills and on the bar...

And some lovely quirky design touches; artwork, photos, and a very unusual 'faces' wallpaper in the back room...!

The public areas of The Marine are; the front bar area, the piano bar area and the back room - separate, but all connected...

Some great views across the harbour, to the east cliff, from the front bar - watch the boats and people pass by...

We had a very nice welcome from staff - and, although lots of tables had already been reserved, they found a nice little spot for us.

This is one of the most popular hotels in Whitby for eating out, so if you want to make sure of a table, reserve in advance - particularly for busy periods (Summer hols, weekends, live music nights) - or try dining early.

(You can now reserve a table online here)

Me at The Marine Hotel in Whitby

I had salmon and asparagus with a side salad (ordered and served separately).

Ian had lobster linguine - pasta and sauce with a lobster claw, and lots of big bits of lobster in the pasta, too.

I had my meal with a white wine spritzer with elderflower cordial - which I can heartily recommend - it was delicious!

Everything about the meal was gorgeous - such delicious, well-cooked food - sublime!

My salmon and asparagus meal at The Marine Hotel in Whitby, Yorkshire

My salmon was gorgeous - tender, flavourful meat inside, with a gently crisped crust.

The asparagus was soft, tender and delicious too.

Ian loved his lobster linguine - he said it was definitely nicer than the one he'd eaten when we went to Venice, even - praise indeed!

We could hardly refuse dessert after such a wonderful main course...

Lovely autumn fruit meringue dessert at The Marine Hotel in Whitby, Yorkshire

I had an Autumn Fruit Meringue, with vanilla ice cream - it looked like a huge, snowy meringue mountain, erupting with warm autumn fruits - very sweet - but totally delicious!

Ian had a gorgeous Bailey's chocolate pot with almond biscuits, and a strawberry to flourish - rich, decadent and delectable!

And yes, I did beg a mouthful!

Although the restaurant was busy, the service was always very good, and the bar staff and waiting staff were extremely helpful, efficient and courteous.

Our food also came very quickly.

The lovely, relaxed but trendy-sophisticated ambience, stylish decor, great service, and truly delicious food all combined to make this a wonderful and special dining experience.

Rooms at The Marine Hotel in Whitby

We haven't stayed here, but the rooms at The Marine Hotel look some of the smartest and most elegant of the hotels in Whitby - very luxurious - although a little pricy!

...but they do look gorgeous, and all have a stunning sea-view!

There are 4 rooms, plus a room available at the Marine's sister business on the same street The Moon and Sixpence.

I'm putting these on my wish-list!
