We stayed here for two nights in the Fraser suite, the room was very light, bright and clean. We didn't spend a huge amount of time at the hotel as this was a base for exploring the island, but while there the staff were friendly and chatty. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night which was fine,... More

Stayed here for one night in July. It was a groupon deal. Having read reviews advising to upgrade the room we did that. Stayed in the Montgomery suite which was beautiful and well worth the extra. Didn't have dinner there but had a cooked breakfast which was great, the continental breakfast looked very good too. Staff very helpful.

....who use 5pm Deals (as of 3rd week in July 2015) to promote the hotel. I'll spare you the details, but I contacted the hotel direct to book, as per the small print on the voucher. Cameron, a co-manager there was lovely. Booking made. 24 hours later I received two extremely rude phone calls from Adrian at UK Mini Breaks,... More

The room was was very clean! We stayed in the Frazer room which was small. However, we did not care at all!! We weren't going... More

Absolutely stunning location on the Isle of Bute not too far from the main town of Rothesay. On arrival we were greeted with welcome check in and had afternoon tea in the outside seating area, the selection was fantastic and above expectations and really made our arrival at the hotel special. The room was very clean and nicely decorated, we... More

My husband and I booked a Wowcher deal for two nights commencing 1 June. We were all packed and ready for the off when we were contacted by Allison at the hotel who advised us of ferry problems following the severe weather warnings. We were very disappointed but after watching the news and consulting my iPad realised how lucky we... More

Fantastic hotel, great value for money. Good level of service, staff making you feel really welcome. We had an excellent evening meal on the Friday we arrived, and great breakfasts both mornings. Highly recommend if you are over in Bute.

After reading some of the previous reviews by the obvious grumpy guests below we were not too sure what to expect. On first view driving up the hilly driveway the hotel looks a little tired, but then so does the area overall. On entering the hotel though the greeting you get soon puts this to the back of your mind.... More
