Stayed at Chandlers on Bute as we were guests at a wedding at Mount Stewart this August.. After reading some of the negative comments and replies from the owner, we thought we were heading for a Faulty Towers style experience. Our room had a view of the Clyde and was charming and very comfortable with an excellent shower on suite... More

Booked a groupon deal for the easter weekend and had to pay for an upgrade to a superior room as there were no standard doubles left, which we were happy to do. We took our 12 week old daughter for our first weekend away as a family. The room we were put in was a small double room, certainly not... More

In fairness, I haven't actually stayed here, but can certainly comment on the so-called booking process. I bought a Groupon voucher in early July, which on paper represented excellent value, and my expectation levels were set accordingly. In early July I tried on two separate days to make a telephone booking during the times specified, but the phone rang out.... More

We had a most enjoyable stay at this hotel in August. Paid for the sea view which proved to be a good decision. The food was superb and the staff very helpful. No hesitation in recommending a break here.

What better place to begin your road trip round Scotland. A romantic room, superb food and the most personal of service. We decided to start our discovery of Scotland here on Bute and chose Chandlers. We were not disappointed and if anything raised our expectations for the rest of our journey. We were greeted like long lost- friends and couldn't... More

We stayed here with a deal offer to celebrate our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were very hospitable and looked after us well. They have a wonderful decking area outside, and on our first morning after breakfast we sat there. It was very hot and had amazing views. Dave the chef produced amazing breakfasts and a very... More

My wife and I spent two nights at this establishment and we have to say that it was not an enjoyable experience. The room was to the rear of the hotel which looked out onto a large ivy covered banking. This blocked out a great deal of daylight and combined with the decor made the room gloomy and unwelcoming. We... More

I, like the last reviewer was planning a trip up here. looking at trip advisor i found this hotel. On reading the reviews i found it refreshing how the owner found time to defend her castle. In fact my partner and friends all regularly check the site to see whos visited and the feedback its a great talking point ...... More

I was looking at a voucher offer for this hotel so decided to look on trip advisor for some feedback..I must say the response to peoples negative remarks by Allison Gibb are second to none..Well done Allison..I totally admire your honesty about some of the not so desirable customers you have had to stay..What do people expect for the price...

I was considering staying here having seen an online offer, but after looking at the shocking response and unprofessional attitude from the manager in her responses I will definitely not be considering this. ! To begin a reply to a paying customer's constructive criticism with " I see that your bad mood has continued.."and to include comments such as "... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on a hotel that you haven't even visited. I'm amazed that you someone from within the industry would stoop to this level, however I will respond to your comments to put your mind at rest that I have read them... The offers that we are running are space fillers, as... More
