Have berthed all over Europe and the Americas, never been spoken to like the owner/manager of this place -sullen, argumentative and downright rude. If sailing South carry on to Royal Quays at N. Shields, if N. Keep on to Eyemouth. Absolutely shocking. Didn’t even want to give the minimum 1 star. Following owners response I would add: As the owner knows, we were not requesting a berth, we were enquiring about the general availability of visitor berthing for a possible visit some time in the future. We were not aggrieved and to suggest otherwise is fallacious and indeed dishonest. I had no problems whatsoever answering all and any questions about my boat; I do have problems with the manner in which they were asked. I do not think Covid-19 is an excuse for extreme bad manners. I have never been to Amble Marina before, with or without my boat; my original review was honest and posted in good faith to help other yachties decide whether to risk such a reception and I stand by it. I don't intend posting further on this given the owners rather twisted and patronising version of events.
