We visited this hotel last week; we couldn't fault it. Excellent management, staff, rooms and food. The view from our room was spectacular, and the weather was kind to us too. I would definitely recommend a visit to Dunoon, and to the hotel.

The setting of the Esplanade Hotel is stunning with breath taking views over the Firth of Clyde. We arrived early at the hotel but the lovely receptionist advised us that our room was ready after confirming with the hard... More

I have just arrived home after spending two nights in this lovely hotel. Our room was overlooking the bay and we were lucky to be there on the nicest weekend of the year so far. The room was very modern (the photos on the web don't do it justice), the bathroom was brand new and the whole place was absolutely... More

Here is a thank you to the owners and staff for treating my fiancée and I to such a wonderful Hogmanay break just a few weeks ago. When I phoned the hotel initially to make the booking, I was so charmed by Sonia, the receptionist with her caring voice and manner, that I knew instantly that this hotel would be... More

It is with a heavy heart we have returned home from what has been a truly delightful stay at the Esplanade Hotel over Christmas. Faultless service, the friendliest staff, lovely rooms, cracking views and lots of tasty food; there is nothing not to love about this homely, inpecably well run hotel. To Manoj, Sam, Sonia, Perry and the rest of... More
