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.

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely spot during our short trip over to Bute while visiting Ireland and Scotland. Both the hotel and the Isle of Bute are absolutely breathtaking. We have already decided that we will be back for a visit and we will definitely stay at Cannon House again. Mel and the gang are amazing... More

We stayed in room 5 ( all the nicest couples do apparently ;) during the weekend of the Bute Jazz festival. The room was spotless and the bed comfy although smaller than we are used to. The room was small ( only room for one easy chair) and up 36 steps but the views, as mentioned by others were really... More

Immaculate hotel, friendly and welcoming. Mel and her girls were most helpful. The bed was comfy and enjoyed a good breakfast. Would definitely return. Lovely view of Rothesay Harbour and hills from our room.

My first visit to Bute was SUCH a pleasure! The island is lovely, even, at the end of October, and Mel helped to make it very special! The bedroom was massive, and contained a piano! My son even played it! The views over the sea were wonderful, and I love sitting at the window watching the ferry coming in and... More

We had a fantastic stay here in August 2014. We were with our baby (just a few weeks older than the owner's own baby!) and we had a great time. Melanie was incredibly helpful and a brilliant host- she gave us great tips on where to go to eat etc. She couldn't do enough for us and other guests and... More

Our first trip back to Rothesay in over 30 years , scenery and views are still fantastic, the sea views from the hotel are stunning, particularly in the morning watching the yachts leaving the marina. Our time at the hotel was very relaxing, we could not have asked for a better location very close to all the restaurant's and bars... More

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
