Booked this hotel weeks ago for a friend of mine some 50 off us staying on the island to receive a letter from the owner saying he tried to call me but informed me my telephone had been disconnected which is absolute nonsense. When I called I was informed he had a booking for two nights instead of my one... More

This Guest house is clean,the breakfast is satisfactory and location good. Unfortunately I can,t recommend due to the manner of the Host. Accusations of theft towards honest people within a 3 couple party has left us very upset. We have no intention of writing a report to damage the owners business, but just to use trip advisor for what it... More

Just returned from the BB, everything was fine and we were having a good time then on returning to the BB to pick up our cases the owner decided to accuse two couples in our party of theft ie stealing towels from the room. These two couples are honest hard working couples and have never stolen anything in their lives.... More

As I reported yesterday, yes your friends are responsible for removing two sets of towels from our home. Disgusting that you think you have the right to write a bad comment about our business and as I reported yesterday your friend that booked the accommodation threatened me and my business over the phone on Sunday with Giving us bad reviews...

Recently stayed in Rothesay. Happened upon this wonderful guest house. Stayed in the sea view room at the front of the house facing Rothesay Harbour. I can't say enough about the house or the host. The room was Jacobean themed. As was the communal lounge. In fact the whole house seemed similarly decorated. Beautiful. Spotlessly clean. Kier the host was... More

My brother and I had some family business to attend to in Rothesay and booked an overnight stay at this wonderful, quirky, B&B. The views from the window were absolutely spectacular and well worth the price. The full breakfast the following day was generous to a fault, and even though I was a little queasy I ate with relish. Lots... More

Booked for 1 night in the family room. The room had a double bed and a single bed. Good sized room but didn't have a good view of the sea, which wasn't an issue. The guest lounge was lovely to sit at night with a few drinks over looking the harbour and we were allowed to bring our own drinks... More
