Over the years I have rarely been let down by hotel in Scotland and the Victoria is no exception,coming off the ferry the hotel is a mere 400 yards away although as the frontage is rather insignificant you could be forgiven for driving past it (I did) The welcome is very friendly and my room was clean and comfortable if...

Two nights at the Victoria hotel in the centre of Rothesay in early March. We have stayed in other hotels on Bute and this is the best one yet. All very fresh and comfortable inside with amazing views across the harbour and bay from the dining room and bar. Ate both nights in the Bistro - food was excellent and... More

Excellent small hotel centrally placed in Rothesay. The room we were allocated was at the back on the top (attic) floor. The chair had holes in it and it could do with an update but that was the only negative. Perhaps the rooms lower down and at the front are more attractive. Its bathroom however was excellent. The whole place... More

The Victoria Hotel is just a stone's throw from the ferry terminal, which is really handy and overlooks the fountain, putting green, Information Centre and cinema. The breakfast was lovely with a great choice on the menu and we decided to eat in the Hotel in the evening and, even though it was a different chef from last year, when... More

I chose to stay away from the city and commute in whilst working in Glasgow by ferry and train 1 hour 45 minutes journey. This option was a well rewarded experience relaxed for the next days work, no stress of city stereotyped hotels it was clean, good food, nice view and a ferry to work. The staff were really friendly... More

A lovely venue overlooking the winter gardens and Rothesay Bay. The jazz and the food were excellent but the organisers must pay attention to some minority jazz issues. Penman Jazz have a fairly steady following in the Glasgow area and play at The Rothesay Jazz Festival. The Jazz Festival has been notable over recent years for it's steadily declining numbers...

Thank you for your constructive review and favourable comments about the hotel which is always a great boost for our staff. We agree that The Penman Band do encourage dance and on their next visit, we will need to give a little space. Your kind of comment we like, although just one thing, let us know at the time and...

We had yet another great visit last week to this lovely hotel. We upgraded to a sea view room and it was worth every penny. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating - even when we asked for and early breakfast. Worth every penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Booked this hotel for b&b through Itison deal. Also booked for dinner in the hotel restaurant on Saturday evening 15th February. We were absolutely delighted at the service, the cleanliness, the attention to detail like Eden toiletries, bottled water, fresh fruit, various hot drink options as well as the usual tea and coffee, a couple of little chocolates etc. The...

We are just back from using the itison deal for 2 nights and have very mixed feeling about this place, even if it was the off season. Firstly, the staff with a few exceptions were very polite and generally helpful. According to previous threads the hotel had a refurb 7 years ago, however our room was very dated with the... More

Well there you go. Just when we thought we could please everyone! In reality we do cater for all ages and our staff are excellent with children. We're not quite sure what you mean by "not for anyone under 40". The Victoria dates back to circa 1880 and we have tried to maintain features of that era whilst also offering... More
