The house is wonderfully quirky, oozing character yet modern, clean and bright. Our host, Richard, was brilliant! Cheerful, friendly and someone for whom nothing seems too much... More

Great B&B overlooking the loch (watched gannets diving into the water!) easy to find off the Dunoon ferry. Superb customer care in wonderful historic house. Excellent touches in room and outstanding breakfast.

I stumbled upon the Anchorage by chance, but have since returned on several occasions. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean, the beds are comfy and the bathrooms are modern and well-cared for. The real highlight however is the host.A friendly person, providing one of the best breakfast tables in Scotland and always ready for a wee chat and... More

Our room (Heron), was spacious and comfortable, with a stunning view over the loch. The bed was sumptuous and we had a wonderful night's... More

If you're visiting Dunoon, this is a great place to stay. The Heron room has a fantasic bed, and great views out onto the Holy Loch. The breakfast is superb and Richard is a fantastic host. Highly recommendable B&B
