A group of us stayed over for the vintage tractor road run, the owner was an exceptional hostess, the rooms spotless, comfortable and only the weather spoilt the great views of the bay from our room. Great breakfast choices including a hearty cooked Scottish . Highly recommend and will return.

If you are visiting the Isle of Bute, you must stay at the Moorings. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We also had breathtaking views of the sea! The breakfast was very high quality and delicious – a traditional Scottish breakfast with more than enough food to get you fueled for your day. Barbara, the owner and gracious host,... More

A very welcoming hostess met us at The Moorings yesterday, we were given the choice of rooms; front or side, what a view from the front bedroom. We asked for recommendations for eating and really enjoyed the food overlooking the jetty. Really good breakfast this morning just right for cyclists.

The room i stayed in was both clean and very comfortable; but what made this stay outstanding was 2 things; first the landlady herself, second the incredible views i had of the bay in the morning!. I have... More

Just returned from an Easter Stay at Rothesay and The Moorings was a gem of a find for the night. From the moment we arrived Barbara the owner couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were spacious and very clean and the views were to die for. Barbara on hand to offer advice on local pubs and eateries to and found... More

Location is first class with splendid views of the bay. The rooms are enormous - more like a suite than a B&B and very tastefully furnished. Excellent breakfast. Didn't get to meet the owners, only the sons who were more than helpful. loved the dogs ! CU soon !

Three of us stayed for the cycling weekend in September and Frank was very accommodating, moving us to a bigger room and setting up an extra bed. He went the extra mile by finding our lost car key and posting it to us which was wonderful and much appreciated - and wouldn't hear of us paying the postage - thanks... More

The Good: Owners very helpful with local information. View was gorgeous and interesting with ferries and sailboats going by. Location is fantastic, a few minutes from Ferry. Free parking. Large rooms with character. The Moorings is a very large Victorian house and although clean it is ready for a makeover. The not so good parts (but not too bad either);... More

Had a seafront view room which was fantastic. Room (apart from view) was fine - everything you would expect, but with a "faded" feel and needing a bit of work done. Proprietor very helpful and breakfast was very enjoyable with excellent service.
