Had such a lovely and enjoyable day here! The family who run the hotel are so friendly and down to earth, very easy to chat to and very informative in terms of exploring the island. 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

Thanks to Allison and Andrew for a lovely stay. The hotel was ideal for either a relaxing break or walking around exploring Bute. We enjoyed the food which was in plentiful supply and suited us foodies down to the ground. Thanks again for the warm welcome and great service. We will be back!!

Sold as luxurious accommodation which this hotel is certainly not. Rack rate is £55 pppn. What we paid via groupon deal, £69 per couple for 2 nights including continental breakfast s all the hotel is worth. Like the island, this hotel is in serious need of a makeover.
