My husband and I have just stayed here for two nights courtesy of a wedding gift of a Red Letter Voucher. The hotel is off the seafront at Dunoon, up a steep narrow drive ... which boasts (if you are lucky like we were) a sight of a real red squirrel!! Any day now the current owners are handing over...

My husband booked us and our 2 Jack Russells in for a long weekend on 20 March as a Christmas present for me. He booked a 'garden room' (Colintraive) and we arrived and found it to be cosy and comfortable, but it didn't have a view from the one window. So, next day, we spoke to Colin and asked whether...

Just enjoyed two nights at the hotel, having extended our stay after receiving a Red Letter Day voucher as a Wedding present. The hotel is nestled amongst a beautifully landscaped garden, with an amazing view of the Firth of Clyde. It is wonderfully serene, being close enough to the centre of Dunoon for shopping and restaurants, without any of the... More

What a lovely place! Very friendly. The Lamont room was spacious and beautiful. We felt like royalty. Francois was a great cook and was rightfully proud of his delicious creations! A real treat. Thanks to all.

Stayed on business. Was spoiled rotten. The food was excellent !! The chef rustled up some beautiful cuisine for me each night. The rooms are comfy and clean. Made to feel very welcome. Made a tough business trip a lot easier. Would highly recommend.

This hotel has a warm & homely feel to it and the staff friendly & attentive. The breakfast was delicious, fresh and the setting beautiful looking over the water. Lots of little extras like Molton Brown toiletries, very fluffy white towels, great tea & coffee selection in the bedroom and beautiful garden surroundings - can't recommend this hotel enough!

We stayed here for two nights over Valentine's weekend. Traditionally decorated, which suited the place, it was very clean and very well presented throughout. Every one we met was very friendly and did everything possible to be helpful. There is nothing that could have been done to make our stay any more enjoyable!

Excellent room, food and service by staff and management! Hope to return again! Lovely touch at breakfast with the love-heart shaped egg, toast and potato scone! Would highly recommend. Personal touch from Francois makes the hotel feel welcoming.

we spent two nights last week at Abbots Brae Dunoon and although the weather was terrible the old world charm of the hotel and the friendliness of Francoise and Lee was second to none.The food was terrific. It had been snowing heavily on the morning of our departure and when went to pack our car Francoise had cleared the snow... More
