We (parents and their adult children) stayed here for a few days as our base for going to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to be close enough to the big city to visit, but who also wants to have some time away from the hustle and bustle. The scenery is gorgeous and... More

My daughter took me to Rothesay as part of my birthday treat. We spent two nights in this hotel and cannot fault it in any way. Its central to anything you should need to do and want to do. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and very accomodating. Would recommend the hotel to anyone and would definately go back.

A warm feel that was offered without without a blink of an eye. Everything from the meals to washing cloths was done in the helpful spirt that lives of Bute. For a true 'Bute' experience stay at The Commodore. I was there for work but if I went back for a holiday I would stay anywhere else.
