Just returned from an Easter Break at the Esplanade Hotel, Dunoon - had a lovely room - obviously just been re-furbished - didn't have sea views but did have lovely view of hills - staff and management couldn't be better - could not do enough for us - would really recommend this to anyone wanting a short break (or longer)...

We have just spent a lovely two days in The Esplanade, albeit a last minute decision. The staff and management could not have been more hospitable or accommodating. We booked the Clansman room, number 23 and it was delightful with gorgeous views and very peaceful. This is recently refurbished as was the en suite bathroom. We only booked bed and... More

Currently staying at the Esplanade Hotel Dunoon with one night left. Wish it was longer because this place is truly outstanding. The hotel is not five star but the management and staff are certainly working towards this. The hotel is lovely and clean with some areas having been obviously upgraded to a high standard. The atmosphere is really good and... More

This hotel is fantastic in every way, the food was superb, the service was too, also great value for money. The location was great, we have 2 boys age 8 and 6 who both thought this was our best holiday ever. The staff did everything possible to accommodate our needs even cooking different things just for the boys. The atmosphere... More

My boyfriend and I arrived on Saturday afternoon, having booked a much needed, last minute, weekend break from the city. As with previous comments, the arrival at the rear of the hotel wasn't promising, but once inside, the hotel was cosy, clean, and comfortable. Whilst not quite'gay friendly', we were checked in politely, if a little un-enthusiastically. We were given... More

I can't recommend the Esplanade Hotel enough Manoj and all the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent and the view of the Firth of Clyde are stunning. The bedroom had a nice comfy bed and very clean, no complaints at all. We will definitely be going back, thanks everyone at the Esplanade for making our stay... More

We visited Dunoon with GB Tours, travelling in one of Anthony's Travel coaches. We stayed at the Esplanade Hotel. What a fabulous location, and having paid extra for a superior room we were not disappointed. The view from our room was amazing. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Manoj, the manager, and this was just a foretaste of how... More
