Travelled to Dunoon on the Cowal Peninsula, Scotland for a three day short break. The whole experience couldn't have been bettered. This was an excellent hotel, well situated on the sea front near the pier and the town centre. Well kept gardens leading down to the promenade and the seafront. Spotlessly clean with modern furnishings and fittings. Staff who really... More

Lovely gardens and lawns allow visitors to enjoy the tranquility of the spot. The welcome from staff/management is a good start. The room we had had sea view, and was warm and comfortable.... More

Hotel friendly, lovely position with good views and access to many places. Hotel is obviously being refurbished in parts, needs more done. Furniture including bed shabby and battered looking. Room far too hot, unable to turn radiator down. Only had breakfast which was reasonable, ate out at other eateries in evening. Lovely to be able to sit in bar areas... More

Rooms excellent. Shower and bath actually work very well. Constant hot water day and night. Very impressed. Breakfast okay but dinner rather basic. Staff very helpful and the location is lovely. Will definitely stay here again on a bed and breakfast deal.

Staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We also took the opportunity to eat at Rio's in the sister... More
