This price was unbelievable value for money It is true that the entrance to the hotel is not inspiring but the public areas were much better. Having read some of the reviews I have to agree that the standard of food... More

We had a very pleasant 2 night stay in Dunoon. This was down, in no small part, to our accommodation. The room*, the staff, the food were all above our expectations (given the (groupon) price paid). The owners are to be commended for giving so much, for so little. *if available upgrade to front room. The view is worth the... More

Ok I paid a budget price and my first impressions of this hotel were " low budget" as the entrance is from the rear and it's not the most impressive view! Reception reminded me of a hostel but beyond that I was quietly impressed! Afternoon tea was ok but supermarket bought biscuits and tarts were very obviously just that. The... More

This was a 2 day trip using an Itison voucher. We had 2 nights B&B with dinner on the second night. The hotel has a nice location right at the water and just a short walk into the centre of town. The staff in this hotel work hard to make sure your stay is pleasant and very comfortable. I am... More

We have had an amazing two night stay for a wedding at the hotel. The hotel staff,rooms and food was excellent. The wedding food was particularly superb and the service was impeccable. Sonia and the rest of the staff are a credit to the hotel. It's a lovely traditional hotel that has clearly had some modernization to its bedrooms and... More

Booked our stay through Itison voucher which was amazing value for money. The location is absolutely perfect being a very short stroll from the passenger ferry terminal. Loved the fact that we were in a quiet area but only 5 minutes walk from the town centre. Our room (which was located at the side of the hotel therefore did not... More

Despite arriving angry as we had been transferred from the hotel's sister hotel in central Dunoon I was pleasantly surprised with the friendliness of the staff, the high standard of the room and the way that the staff did their best to make me feel welcomed.

Friendly staff , great freshly cooked food and nice service. And the room we stayed was lovely with a brilliant sea view to die for. And on top of that have a malt cellar with 100s of malt to choose from. Will be back definitely.

What a lovely stay we had at the Esplanade. The staff were exceptional - very friendly and professional. Although the hotel is old the rooms were clean and fresh. The food was very good and plentiful. The lovely weather allowed us to sit out on the sun terrace and enjoy the magnificent views. We will definitely be back and are... More
