She insisted on making us a large delious breakfast every morning and we enjoyed watching the ferries come and go from the windows in dining and family rooms We... More

This hotel reflects the town of Rothesay itself....faded glory. There is a shortage of almost everything in Rothesay, the place has an air of being closed with shops, pubs and cafes empty and for sale. The Cannon House is old and a bit threadbare, however the people who run it are lovely and provide a fine breakfast. So not fancy... More

This is a lovely old-fashioned wee hotel with fantastic views over Rothesay Bay. Easily walkable from the pier should you not wish to bring a car on the ferry. The bed was very comfortable and having a walk-in shower ideal for my disability. Breakfast is their speciality with excellent choices. Our scrambled eggs with smoked salmon was a delightful start...

This hotel is not slick - and thank goodness. It's a solid Victorian building, with a steep spiral staircase, and a really mellow atmosphere. It's a home from home and the kind of home where you can put your feet up on a chair and not have a heart attack if you spill something! Having said this, it could be... More

We have just returned from a really lovely stay at Cannon House Hotel. We are already wondering when we can return. We had room 4 which was just perfect for our needs. Super clean! It has a huge, comfortable double bed with a sitting room that was set up as a fold out sofa bed for our 2 kids. The... More

Lovely guest house, well located to Rothesay centre but far enough out that it's quiet. Very welcoming and friendly staff, beautiful views, and clean comfy rooms. The breakfast was very filling and made to order. Can't fault anything, and looking forward to going back. Would recommend to anyone looking for a homley base to explore Bute.
