The hotel is in a good position with sea view and lovely gardens. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and all staff welcoming, especially the reception staff including Sonia. The full Scottish breakfast was large well prepared and the evening menu good, though we did not eat there. Our room was clean, comfortable and large enough, though we made a... More

It's in a very covenient location, only 5 minutes walk from Dunoon Ferry Terminal and the town centre. A great relaxing weekend... More

Having travelled round the world, we have a fair idea of standards. We had a sea view room looking out over the whole sea, the room was clean, bed comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and when I asked for extra pillows, iron etc...they came very quickly. I really could not critiscise any of the staff- Alina in... More

This was our 3rd stay and yet again, we had an excellent time. First class rooms, great food, excellent staff all round, including Sonia and Minaj. The Hotel is situated on the sea front promenade with great views across the water. The front gardens are beautiful and well kept and in the warm weather there is tables and chairs set... More

We stayed at the Esplanade because family members had stayed there and said it was very good. The room which had recently been re-decorated and re-furnished was clean and the outlook very nice.Whilst staff were friendly, the constant arrival of coach parties resulted in a dinner and breakfast service which was more like school dinners in a room with peeling...
