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...

Well I actually did not stay in the hotel although I was booked. There had been a slight confusion with the date. However, the owner actually offered me the spare bedroom in their own apt for next to nothing. After travelling around the world in my work, I have never run into this kind of hospitality or ability to sort... More

We came to Bute for a wedding, and my friends and I booked out all of the rooms. It was absolutely ideal for us, only 2 minutes walk from the ferry with stunning views over the water. The hostess was lovely, very helpful and the breakfasts were really tasty with plenty of choice. Lovely garden at the back too, which... More

This hotel had a great view of the water and the beautiful surrounding area, was central and had very nice rooms/bathrooms. There was a great selection of breakfasts to choose from, and ours were delicious. The best thing about the hotel, however, was the service. The owner was really friendly and kind, and after I left my sunglasses behind at... More
