10/10 Exceptional

Handy & Tidy. Good location for the ferry
The Marksman is a great place to stay if you are catching the Ferry the next day. Free parking on site and only a 10 to 15 minute drive to the ferry. It is on a busy road during rush hour but it settles down at night. I had a standard studio, which has a fridge, microwave and sets of crockery/cutlery for two. You need to fill the kettle from the bathroom sink but I had no problem filling it from there. Bathroom was clean and tidy. Tiled shower had plenty of pressure.

6/10 Good

Substandard for what they’re charging
Travelling for work. Place is pretty run down, including stained bedding, flaking paint on ceiling in bathroom, poorly patched hole in the wall, shower door didn’t close so water run out onto bathroom floor, and a broken ironing board.

I will continue to book in and stay at the Marksman. Rooms are comfortable,clean and tidy. Staff amazing. The only thing I would change are the curtains. Replace the curtains in the rooms with blackout curtains .With the lights on around the building all night ,it can be hard to sleep, being so light. Otherwise a perfect place to stay.

Staff were pretty good. Friendly. Apart from one communication breakdown i have no complaints. Our room was cosy. Could see staff cleaning the other rooms and washing linen etc. A little more work on the information folder would be beneficial to them and visitors. Thank you.
