Well worth the 30p just a pity the ladies are not as grand as the gents. The Victorians certainly knew all about grand toilets.

Rothesay's purpose built loos are mainly closed apart from the Winter Gardens and pier waiting room, and if anywhere is worth 30p this is the place! Once languishing in decay the gents have been refurbished in Victorian grandeur and women may inspect if unoccupied. Ditto the more modern ladies by men like me. The attendant kindly took my photo by... More

Don't visit Rothesay without going to the toilet!! Very clean when I visited last year, there's not many of these around the country

The gents are the reason you come here, a beautifully restored state of the art Victorian loo, mosaic floors, fine wood work, glazed cisterns, marbelised decor. Ladies are a modern addition for reasons you will understand when you visit!

There's no doubt that the place has been restored in keeping with the original but it's a lavvy at the end of the day . Its worth a look but Im struggling to understand what a tour would consist of?

Amazing how this place has been kept. The only time I've taken photos of the toilet. I can see why this place is a must see and is really like stepping back in time

Everything! the Victorians never cease to totally amaze me with their adherance to detail. One would never find a modern gents toilet that is so functional as well as being swish

Whilst on a short break on Rothesay my wife and I needed to use the toilet. When we were pointed in the direction of these we were slightly surprised to be charged 30p each but they were worth every penny, spotlessly clean, well maintained and a touch of Victorian luxury, well worth a visit.

Sounds a silly thing to say but I love these toilets. I was disappointed that the Victorian toilets are only in the gents. So I had to ask the lady if I could go in and then I asked my partner to check that they were empty to allow me to take photos. Well worth it.
