My partner and I stayed at the Rothesay Hotel for a couple of nights, last week for a wedding we were attending locally. We were greeted on arrival and offered drinks. Our hosts were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The room was comfy and very clean. The pool looked fantastic, and although used for swimming lessons it... More

Stayed for 3 nights, got a free upgrade to a suite, brilliant breakfasts, there was nothing not to like. Very enjoyable experience. Will definitely use this Hotel again, very soon we hope, as it's a great place in a great area of the Country.

We stayed here for one night. Was a little disappointed had booked a superior double and had asked for ground floor if possible. No one contacted us to just before arrival when we were in the car and unable to answer phone, to let us know that if we went for the downstairs room we would have to have a... More

Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed my stay. The staff are extremely friendly and could not do more to help us. The rooms are nice and well decorated. My only slight issue was the bathroom as felt it needed a revamp. I would stay here again if I get back to Dorset.

We booked an overnight stay at The Rothesay, as our Niece was a having a 30th birthday party nearby at The Galleon pub. Greeted by Dee upon arrival, immediately we got a feel that nothing was too much trouble. Dee showed us to our room & offered tea/coffee & choccie biscuits! Our room (10) was very nice... Clean & modern,... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary, and wanted to go somewhere still on a relatively tight budget, but which wasn't the default Premier Inn choice. I think on balance we would rate this place pretty much the same as a Premier, so I guess it depends if you want something a little bit different. The main plus points: Welcoming... More

We were met at reception by Dee, one of the owners. Dee made us feel very welcome and her enthusiasm for the hotel and her recommendations for places to visit was warmly received. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a four poster bedroom. The decor was first class but we were suprised at the tiny ensuite. Breakfast was... More

We visited The Rothesay Hotel for a long weekend with my husband and mother in law. When we arrived we learnt we had been upgraded, and charged exactly the same as time of booking. Michael and Dee give a very warm welcome and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms have everything you could need for a long weekend stay... More

Having spent four weeks staying at the Rothesay for business purposes over the course of this year, I have found the owners to be very friendly and welcoming each time. My rooms have always been clean and well appointed with TV, sofa, four poster bed and tea/coffee making facilities. There is a fairly good choice of breakfast, cooked to order... More
