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

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
