A friendly hotel with great views over the Firth of Clyde. The rooms are comfortable and the food is first class with a varied menu. The owners, Graham and Claire, are most welcoming and create a most enjoyable environment.

A beautiful Hotel, with a wonderful warm welcome and excellent service. The guests I booked in here were treated so well and nothing was too much trouble. From bespoke meals to sending or printing documents, the staff here went the extra mile. Highly recommend them to anyone.

The Abbots Brae is a lovely old Victorian hotel, set in its own grounds with great views from the sea-facing rooms. We loved the rooms, the new owners are really nice, and serve a great breakfast. Dinner under the new owners wasn't as good as the previous reviews led us to expect - not bad, but neither was it exceptional.

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon and it was great. We chose one of the sea view king bed rooms as we need a larger bed than is provided in the four poster room and it was super. We opted for the package of champagne and chocolates on arrival which was really welcome when we finally... More

Spent a very good night at Abbot's Brae and received an exceptional welcome from New owners Graham and Clare. The view from the hotel will be hard to beat. We wish them every success and would strongly recommend a visit.

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...
