This hotel is well worth a visit, location is lovely on the sea front with many rooms with sea view. The rear of the hotel does not do credit to the inside, as it can only be approached one way. Once inside you will be pleasantly surprised. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. the food is very good and... More

We had a lovely stay at the Esplanade hotel, all the staff made us welcome, our room was lovely, we really enjoyed our visit. It was an easy walk to Dunoon town and along the bays. A good base for driving around the attractions and great views.

Imagine how the guests of the top five star hotels worldwide are professionally treated and you won't be far off their standards here.
