What a wonderful location - so near the centre of Rothesay and yet very quiet due to its being set a little way up a hill leading off from the town centre. Very pretty and well planned gardens and fantastic views. Tina and Tom were wonderful hosts, providing a warm welcome and very high standard and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was... More

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!
