Was really looking forward to the stay as this hotel had great reviews. We booked months in advance and when I arrived I was given a really small room which they tried to say was for two people. It was very cramped and smelt like dampness, the decor was lovely I must admit! I then went to reception and asked... More

The location is lovely, the room we had was not bad and had a view overlooking the sea. The food was really awful the poorest quality, the bacon was covered in that awful white gunge and cold , we had very over cooked pasta one night thinking you can't go wrong with pasta, but the chef there did, the fish...

Just stayed at this hotel with family and friends on a 5pm deal. Everything was perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was delicious and the bar priced reasonably. We had 3 rooms all on different floors. Some are older fashioned than others but I'm sure in time they will re-do them to the same standard.... More

The weather was awful but the hotel was to such a great standard we barely noticed. Staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Stayed here through a 5pm and were given a sea view room making the stay even better. A really nice escape for a weekend, reasonably priced menu and bar. There are nice walks around and a generally... More

This is a Beautiful hotel situated on the promenade with stunning views of Dunoon, I would recommend anyone who is visiting Dunoon to stay here. The service provided by this family run hotel was second to none. It made our trip a memorable one, we can't wait to return here!

Stayed recently on a 5pm two night deal which was excellent value for money. The staff were all very friendly with great service, as the weather was lovely they even carried a table out to the garden to let us have our afternoon tea out in the sunshine. The hotel is in a great location right on the promenade with... More

A family run hotel that is expanding. It's clear that the family are trying hard to improve the visitor experience for their clients. We were only staying one night visiting friends in Dunoon. The room we were given was very spacious and I really can't fault it, the staff were friendly and efficient. At breakfast it was clear that a... More
