Excellent views of sea from room. Fantastic garden with lovely flowers (they smell great!). Good generous second serving of food at breakfast! Good receptionist. Poor reception Wi-Fi. Bathroom slightly damaged could be refurbished.

Stayed by chance at this lovely hotel. We were spoiled in the Arthur Room which had a very comfortable four poster bed and a beautiful spotless en suite. The lovely view from our room was a delight and the staff could not have been more helpful. We had a 3 course meal for £15. As the weather turned wild we... More

I had a 4 night stay at this hotel, I was on a coach holiday. We were warmly greeted on our arrival all the staff were warm, friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable and quiet, there wasn't much of a view, however, I didn't have to go far to find one. From the front of the hotel... More

It's in a great location with fabulous views over a lovely well kept garden but don't expect high end chic here as it's definitely seen better days. Having said that, everything was very clean and the staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. The meals were average, nothing fancy but nothing to complain about. Would I go back? Yes, I think...

I have stayed at this hotel on a few occassions and found it first class This time was again very good but with a slight change in some of the services offered.

Having read many previous reviews for this hotel I had high hopes... I think I must have stayed elsewhere because my experience seems to be very different from others. This hotel is shabby, tired and in need of refurbishment. The third floor transported me back to the 1980's, the decor is very outdated, the beds were uncomfortable, we had no... More

The hotel is in a good position with sea view and lovely gardens. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and all staff welcoming, especially the reception staff including Sonia. The full Scottish breakfast was large well prepared and the evening menu good, though we did not eat there. Our room was clean, comfortable and large enough, though we made a... More

our room was bright and airy, beautiful decor and big windows, which really opens the room up. We had great sea view in the room. Lovely front gardens and the beach is right in front of the hotel. It's in a very covenient location, only 5 minutes walk from Dunoon Ferry Terminal and the town centre. A great relaxing weekend... More

Having travelled round the world, we have a fair idea of standards. We had a sea view room looking out over the whole sea, the room was clean, bed comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and when I asked for extra pillows, iron etc...they came very quickly. I really could not critiscise any of the staff- Alina in... More
