Fabulous 8,6 From 623 reviews

Good 6,0
It would have been nice to know in advance about ongoing renovations. Unfortunately issue with no hot water after a day of sightseeing in the rain!
Peter, gb2 night trip
Very good 8,0
Fine. Great location
Nice stay. Upgraded to a river view.Thank you. Nice touch of wine to help yourself to in reception area. Areas are obviously in need of reservation but I think it’s ongoing. Breakfast room is a bit grim and down market looking. Breakfast was nothing special but ok. The location is excellent and that’s why we stay here regularly. Reception staff are super friendly too.

Very nice and easy place to stay - bit of a shame to have to pay for parking

Enjoyable stay.
Not sure if there was an issue with our booking as the person on the desk didn’t seem like she could find my name. We were given a suite rather than a standard room we booked, so this review may be a little biased! As you can imagine the room was excellent, very clean and everything we needed to make it a pleasant stay. We had travelled up to drop our son off for University, we chose the Marriott this time as it’s in the centre of the city so everything in walking distance. We struggled to find somewhere for an evening meal as it seemed a lot of places were serving the same time of food which appeared to cater for students predominantly. Because of this we ended up dining in the hotel and we were very glad we did, the food was excellent. I can thoroughly recommend the beef brisket, possibly one of the best I’ve tasted. Overall I can recommend the Marriott and would definitely stay there again.
