To Manoj, Sam, Sonia, Perry and the rest of... More

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.
