Had a brilliant time yet again. Management and staff brilliant nothing was a bother. Met some lovely people from all over. Hotel is set in a beautiful location right at the water with no traffic in front. Food first class and brilliant value for money. Hope to return next year. Many thanks. Marie (Wardrop)

Good hotel, in an ideal location on the see front and not far a walk from the ferry terminal. The staff are friendly and helpful, ideal location for walking,golfing, biking, swimming and visits to other parts of the highliands. On the weekend that I was there entertainment was provided and of a good standard

Can't really understand the people who have given high ratings to a very tired and dated hotel. The only high markings I could give would be for the staff, the reasonable bar prices and good wifi connection (This wifi connection is extremely important if you choose to visit Dunoon.) There was no stunning view from our room as the window... More
