My wife and I were on a coach trip to Scotland and this hotel was for the first two nights. The only way to the hotel parking area meant that the driver had to reverse for about a 100 yards the wrong way down a one way street. I realise that this is not the hotels fault but it did... More

Stayed Saturday\Sunday with this deal. Food was great, service was very good. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Sonia the receptionist was so cheerful and helped us, nothing was a bother to her. We stayed in room 320 which is to the rear of the hotel. Was fairly small, however suited us as it was well decorated and clean. Lovely... More

I have stayed at this hotel three times for when I've been in Dunoon working on Business. Always had space for me when I was booking last minute. I couldn't fault the staff, as they were great. I never tried any food, or use the bar during any of my stays. But my rooms were always comfortable. Just a single... More

We visited as part of a coach party.. we paid to upgrade to a sea view room. Our room 'Arthurs room' 323 had a fabulous view over the sea.. There is no traffic in front of the hotel so it was very quiet too except whilst the entertainment was on in the evening upto 10. 30 pm. The room which... More

Returned home yesterday after spending two nights at the Esplanade Hotel. Booked a special offer through Classic Britain. First impressions when we came into the reception from the car park was the damp, musty smell which was a bit off putting. Also had difficulty finding our first floor room initially due to the maze of narrow corridors with steps up... More

Stayed here for one night after spending 2 nights ar Argyll hotel. I thought the Esplanade was great value for money. Room large, clean and very comfortable. Lovely ensuit which was let down by the very poor shower. Just a trickle of warm water and it was impossible to shower. If I had been staying longer I would have brought... More

We are just home from an overnight at the Hotel Esplanade...Gran, Mum and Daughter! We booked through Booking.com and were given lovely ground floor rooms ( 1 double and a twin) overlooking the beautiful gardens and the sea. I cannot fault the value for money at The Esplanade. We found the food to be perfectly good. Especially the Roast Beef... More
