What an amazing find! Stayed here with my family over the May Bank Holiday and had a wonderful time. Our hosts Tina and Tom could not have made us feel more welcome - which is not an easy feat with 3 kids in tow. Within minutes of arriving Tom was educating the older two kids (8 & 11) about his...

What a wonderful piece of paradise Ivybank is! From the second we arrived we were almost made to feel like family. Both Tina and Tom are such a lovely couple and make you feel right at home, and talk about being kid friendly?! - Tina had our little 2 year old boy cuddling her like she was a favourite Aunty...

Having visited the Isle of Bute for over 40 years my partner and I found the perfect bed and breakfast at the Ivybank Rothesay and the perfect hosts Tina and Tom. It was Tina who met us on arrival and her personality makes you feel that you have made the right decision to have chosen their lovely B&B for our... More

We stayed here for two nights in the summer and were very impressed with Ivybank. The position and outlook are stunning. Our room looked out to the front, down over the town of Rothesay and out over the bay. We didn't shut the curtains at night and enjoyed the twinkling lights of the town below. There is a convenient path... More

Ivybank Villa is a lovely large house with gardens, all immaculately kept,, in an elevated position looking out over Rothesay. There was a wonderfully warm welcome for us when we arrived, from the proprietors Tom and Tina; two genuinely nice, friendly people. We felt more like part of the family than paying guests – Tom and Tina really could not... More

The house is magnificent, our room was great and the breakfast was delicious but most of all atmosphere and welcome from Tom and Tina made our stay perfect! We were travelling with our dog and they were brilliant with her too. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed for one night in room 4, a lovely suite with a great view over Rothesay bay. Tina and her husband couldn't have been friendlier, we felt really welcome and looked after. Great room, fab breakfast, cute dog, brilliant views, lovely garden. If we're ever on Bute again we'll be back!

This is our second stay at Ivy Bank Villa and it is still as lovely as ever. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the owners, Tom and Tina, they create a very relaxing atmosphere in their beautiful home. A great start to the day, a cooked breakfast served in the breakfast room with views of the harbor and... More

Stayed for 2 nights over a bank holiday weekend. Delightful and welcoming host. She took time to chat to us and give us details on things to do on the island. The room was great and exceptionally clean. It's a beautiful house with a great garden and just 2 minutes walk from the town center. The breakfast in the morning... More
