I was lucky enough to stay there for a week. A very impressive looking hotel with plenty of character with nice grounds Nice rooms kept spotless by staff. Great food, perfectly cooked and presented. The staff can,t do enough for you. Nice bar and very good prices Wow, I wish I was there now. Much recommended.

I stayed in this hotel for a week because I was working up there. The hotel itself is a beautiful old building with lots of character and the staff are an absolute credit to the hotel. Although it was freezing cold up there my room was toasty warm thanks to the staff adding an electric convector heater to the central... More

The hotel looks quite impressive from the outside and I can imagine it was quite a special place to visit 40 or 50 years ago. Unfortunately Im not sure it has changed much if at all inside in that time. Of the party I was with each of us had different sized rooms and it seems I was luckier than... More

Im totally new to trip advisor but having noticing your reviews weren't so positive thought it would be nice to write a positive review. My husband and I came for a meal on the 9th of September 2014 and after having despicable service from the waitress that was there the last time I didn't want to go back. We got... More

Due to a cock up by another hotel in Cowal, we found ourselves looking for a place to stay in Dunoon and, getting rather desperate, we looked at the Royal Marine on account of its grand exterior and the fact that it had vacancies. Inside, the hotel was none too clean and very shabby with scuffed and chipped paintwork, exposed... More

Booked the hotel over the phone, staff was rude, price quoted intially for per room per night, then double it up by charging it per person per room per night! caused a huge amount of confusion. Ended up cancelling another hotel already booked by mistake. Staff isn't helpful at all. Won't recommend to anyone.

Spent a week here after a mix up with booking at the Esplanade. Looks very grand from the outside, but inside not quite so. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the room was comfortable, if not palatial. I was told the hotel has new ownership and they would like to refurbish, but were limited because the building is... More

Stayed here from a coach tour 4 nights. The Hotel stands very majestic when you start to approach the quay from the ferry. The rooms are ready for refurbishment. They are clean, well aired and have all the amenities you would need. The food is to be recommended, very good menu's, great choice and the Scottish Night complete with Haggis... More

We were attracted to this hotel by its old world appearance, its the first thing that catches your eye as you disembark from the gourock ferry, have a look at the edifice but do not be tempted to enter, we decided to eat here and it was a mistake, one member of staff looked after reception, the bar, and served...
