My husband and I stayed at The Spinnaker for two nights, Oct. 3 and 4, 2014, a Friday and Saturday. Even though we had a large ensuite room at the front, we found it quiet and had no problem sleeping. We loved the view, which was endlessly fascinating, with all the boat traffic. We felt very much at home. The... More

I really do recommend staying at this hotel. The staff are so nice and friendly. The room was lovely and had such a beautiful view across the water. The room was also a lot bigger than it looks in photos. You also get breakfast included in the price and its pretty decent. :)

We stayed overnight here in September 2014 having arrived off the ferry in Cairnryan. We had a lovely ensuite room with a sea view. The breakfast was full scottish with the option of fruit or cereal. The bar in the evening was tended by a very friendly young man who filled us in on all the local history.

My wife and I had a short break from 21st Sept 2014 at this well kept, very friendly, hotel. It was our second visit, having stayed over New Year a couple of years ago. We had a room at the front with excellent views (the weather was wonderful). The food, including breakfast, is excellent, with a good choice. The Ale... More

We stayed at The Spinnaker Hotel as going to Bute the following day. It was a typical pub. Room was OK although we were over the pump area for the pub so a little disturbed night's sleep. Food was good, although service was very slow. We were warned about this, so prepared! Very busy restaurant.

SpinnyGourock, Owner at The Spinnaker Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for the review. Sorry service was slow. I hope it's because the hotel was busy. The rooms at the rear of the hotel avoid the noise from any evening traffic but are unfortunately closer to the storage areas which do have a cooler unit that goes on/off based on temperature. I need to remember to tell guests if it... More

Popped in during the week for a drink which was great so decided to book for lunch. The food was really good, I can totally recommend the pie of the day dish. The menu has a good choice and very good prices. We had a lovely meal with great service lots of smiles.

The staff were amazing, the location great and the pub downstairs did not keep us awake. But, we booked on line and they seemed to have lost our booking, looks like they have a paper diary which may not tally up with on line bookings. So, if you are booking in here I recommend phoning to book and ensuring your... More

Hi. I've looked into this as a result of your tripadvisor comments. Sorry about the mix up with your booking and also what you where charged. The online booking system generally works well. I wasn't at the hotel the night you checked in but I had actually booked you into an ensuite double room. I hadn't clearly marked your name... More

We stayed at the Spinnaker a couple of weeks ago and the service from Stewart and the "crew" was absolutely superb. Based on our experience, whether you're looking for an overnight stay or somewhere for a lovely meal, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Spinnaker.

Stayed at the Spinnaker for the first few days of the Commonwealth Games (its under an hour by train to Glasgow Central) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good food,nice clean room and absolutely fantastic view over the Firth of Clyde. Thoroughly recommend.
