We had the most wonderful day looking around this stunning building. Never seen anything like this before. We had a fantastic guide who kept us all fully engaged and interested. Lots of wow factors. This is a must visit if you go to the isle of bute

It was a lovely day when we visited Mount Stuart. I hadn't realised how large the place was and hadn't left enough time to view all the gardens. It was a bit expensive to get into the house... Just over £11 each, however when inside the house was beautiful. Such detail and time put onto every design. I do wish... More

We visited Mount Stuart house during a trip to Rothesay armed with camera's and video recorders only to be told we couldn't use them inside the house. As it was raining, we couldn't use them outside either. We were part of a coach party but seemed to have overwhelmed the staff there because we were escorted in groups so large... More

Mount Stuart House is a first class day out but make sure you take your own food with you. It took 20 minutes to have an order taken in the restaurant and then a further 45 minutes for the order to be served. This happened on 21 June, which was, according to the only information received, the first busy day... More

Excellent trip brought to life by a really engaging guide. First impressions suggested he may disappear off for a cup of Horlicks after about 10 minutes. Really knew the history of Rothesay, the house, family and all the exhibits. Brought the whole trip to life with great enthusiasm.

The guides were knowledgeable and helpful but this mansion with all its marble and vast rooms was more than I could enjoy. Obviously the history of the place will appeal to certain people but I found it grotesque.

Mount Stuart was fantastic. The guides are so informative and interesting. The house is exquisite and well worth a visit. You can get a little portable chair to carry round with you if you need to sit down. My only criticism is that I would have liked static chairs placed around the house for anyone who needed a sit down... More

I attend Mount Stuart for a family wedding and was lucky enough to stay for one night in the Blue room. The room was beautifully dressed and we were treated like royalty, every minute of the stay found the staff to be polite and attentive and I cannot fault the service. We took a dip in their magnificent pool and... More

Mount Stuart is the most stunning stately home we have ever visited, you will not be disappointed! The 3rd Marquiss of Bute spared no expense and the inside of the house is truly breathtaking. The newly built entrance building hosts a lovely coffee shop/restaurant and although it is quite a distance from the house, you can either walk or take... More

On arrival at the house we were met by the head guide who explained they were setting up for a wedding but it wouldn't detract from our visit, how wrong she was because it did. We were also told we had a new guide that she had personally trained and he would be excellent. Wrong again as the level of... More
