Check-in was at 1pm, nice and early - so after we'd been for a walk to Puck's Glen (highly recommended!), we arrived at the hotel and were warmly welcomed by Sandra. The location is superb - right next to the sea and promenade, with a pebble beach for walking our dog, and a play area with swings and slides for... More

This small hotel is directly on the edge of the Clyde River in a big, old Victorian, former private residence; the owners are helpful and delightful to know. Breakfast is lovely. It is also not more than three houses from where I used to live on down the promenade (along the Clyde river shore). Dunoon is a delight to visit;... More

We had a lovely stay here earlier this month. We booked a sea view room and the view was fantastic. The room was a good size and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and the owner was friendly and welcoming. We look forward to staying here again.

A recent stay with 3 other cyclists doing the Glasgow to Oban cycle ride. The location was great just a minute from the ferry and we had somewhere safe to lock up our bikes. The welcome, hospitality and overall impression of the hotel was excellent. We had a lovely seaview and use of a great lounge to rest at night... More

The hotel is very difficult to locate especially if you are looking for the parking area. The narrow one way streets do not help and it took us a few tries to eventually find the hotel parking area. The man and wife owners are very friendly and I especially appreciated his assistance with our luggage as our room was on... More

We had a lovely time with Sandra and her husband who did all they could to make our stay a pleasant one, even taking a door off to make sure my mother in law could get full access to the bathroom with her zimmer! The hotel was... More

Booked this on line, took a wee bit of finding (you need to Find Park Ave, then go down the narrow lane between the buildings, virtually onto the water front, where there is plenty of parking) and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful interior of this grand old lady and her caring owners. Good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast.... More

This was a clean, pleasant and comfortable place to stay, with amazing sea views and a great breakfast. Lovely, friendly and helpful owners - Sandra gave me loads of tips on where to eat and visit which was much appreciated. Would stay again if back in that area.

Stayed here as attending a wedding close by. We had 3 rooms all en suite, we were in Arran which was spotless, bed was 2 singles put together to make double and was very comfortable (a great sleep was had by myself and husband ). Each room was issued with a front door key so no worries about coming back... More
