Wild weather in Dunoon but this was a warm, happy experience. Huge waves out in the bay, just the other side of the garden. Room was lovely and breakfast was perfect. I forget my toilet bag and Sandra very kindly sent it on. Many thanks. Highly recommended.

Just spent a very enjoyable weekend at this little gem of a hotel. Nothing too much trouble for our hosts Sandra and Matt. Breakfast cooked to perfection. We were made to feel very welcome from the first moment. Hope to return next year.

Once again I had the pleasure of staying with Matt and Sandra Yates at there hotel by the sea. And, once again, my stay was very pleasurable. A warm, clean and comfortable room with a lovely sea view and a great breakfast. I look forward to a return visit in the not too distant future.

We stayed just for one night in October 2014. Only one other guest was present and the hotel was extremely quiet as a result. The bar was not available and there was no evening meal available either. This really didn't matter for such a quick visit as there was food available in town just five minutes walk away. We ended... More

We stayed just one night here, but cannot fault it. Right from the start we felt welcomed by Sandra who explained all hotel policies clearly when she gave us our keys. It is only 5 minutes walk to the town centre and has a stunning view over the firth of Clyde. When we walked into town for dinner we saw... More

Had a peaceful night here. Lovely location. View from room was outstanding. Think it was Mull room. Breakfast very good. Overall a god experience and would go back. Stayed in a bigger hotel nearby before and much preferred here.

Stayed here for 2 nights in August 2014. Friendly hosts, convenient location (only 5 minutes walk to centre of Dunoon), parking on site. Good, hearty breakfast. Small room, décor quite outdated but clean. Nice big lounge overlooking the sea. Poor television reception but only a problem if the weather is rubbish and you want to stay in and watch TV,... More

We stayed in the room entitled "Mull" because it had a en-suite bath with shower and it was really very comfortable. Really nicely decorated in a simple monochrome black and white style it was spotlessly clean, and had a lovely "Ansell Adams" style picture over the bed which really complimented "the look". The bathroom was a little bit of a... More

Our visit to Dunoon was for a family funeral. Sandra's welcome was warm and very helpful. The hotel is situated on the West Bay a five minute walk from the passenger ferry and is in a lovely quiet location . The views are fantastic. Thank you Sandra for your friendliness and your lovely breakfasts
