We stayed at cannon house after reading the excellent revues on trip advisor. How disappointed were we! Very friendly welcome, Our room was overlooking the sea with fab views. The decor was very dated and tired, Old carpet and the bathroom suite was about 30 years old and dated tiles. The tea making facilities were 2 tea bags and 2... More

We had a lovely few nights here with our baby and the owners couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. Clean, well kept and with a welcoming atmosphere. We had a large room with an attached sitting room with beautiful sea view. We will be back and would recommend to friends.

For a bit of nostalgia whilst visiting my homeland, I decided to pay a trip to Rothesay, as it was the first holiday my parents took me on when I was one year old,(49 years ago) and I took my mum with us. I knew that the landscape and views would still be spectacular, (which they were.) but I wasn't... More

We loved our stay at Cannon House Hotel, the perfect location and we were looked after very well. Our family room was one of the biggest I've ever seen, beautiful sea-views. Breakfast was great too. Highly recommended.

Comfortable hotel in excellent location with fantastic view of harbour. Very helpful and friendly owner/staff were a highlight. Very close to Ferry terminal and town centre within 3-4 minutes on foot.Good value.

We stayed for one night at the Cannon House Hotel and really enjoyed it. We had Room 1 - complete with piano! - which was huge and had great sea views over the harbour. The hotel is five minutes walk from the ferry pier and central for all downtown Rothesay has to offer. It's also a great base for exploring... More

We arrived without warning and quite late, but were taken in and looked after excellently - we got a great room (the first hotel room I have ever experienced with its own piano) which was very spacious and decorated with a lot of good taste. Creature comforts such as coffee and tea-making facilities WERE available in the room, as well... More

Cannon House Hotel is in a great location, right in the centre of things but still quiet and peaceful within. Mel, the owner, was just lovely and very helpful with good local advice and managing to meet my gluten free vegetarian breakfast requirements with no notice (sorry Mel!) - and it was delicious! The room was spacious and well presented,... More

I had stayed here on two previous visits, and was looking forward to being here again. Unfortunately, the hotel is under new management, and things are NOT the same. I felt that the new management either did not know the business, or did not really care. The decor is "tired" and the housekeeping is OK but not brilliant. The lack... More

This hotel has recently changed ownership and bears no resemblance to former reviews. There is no longer a restaurant offering evening meals which was a great disappointment. Much worse,however, is that no tea-making facility is available in the bedrooms. Self-service is available in the dining rooms but who wants to trail up and down 2 flights of steep stairs for...
