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

We only had a one-night stay here, but we were very pleased with our choice of B&B in this lovely, elegant house. We were made to feel very welcome by Richard, a genial and engaging host. 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

I agree with the last 70 excellent reviews, and a reason to use trip adviser to chose our places to stay.........a handy place 5 mins from the ferry port, but with views straight across holy loch, we woke up to mist out to sea, but then had an hour of reading a really well stocked library and tucking into a...

This B&B is just lovely. The house is beautiful and the welcome, atmosphere and attention to detail is wonderful. I stayed the first night on my own and then asked the next day if I could extend my stay as my partner was able to join me for a well deserved relaxing evening together. The owner was so helpful and... More

This was my third long weekend staying at The Anchorage, and every time it has been an absolute pleasure. Excellent room, very comfortable bed and great breakfasts with wonderful views across the loch. We were (again) very lucky with the weather - Richard, the owner, must be doing something right! He goes to a lot of effort and it really... More

We had a lovely couple of nights at the Anchorage and we were looked after well by the hosts Richard and Helen. The beds were comfy, the rooms were cosy and the breakfast was great. We went out in the boat which was great. Dunoon is a bit tired but all in all a great stay.
