Stayed here with friends overnight and booked this as the hotel said they had free wifi and parking. On arrival, we found that parking was on the street and it was difficult to find a space. There was no reception desk but check in was no problem as staff were very friendly. One room was a good size overlooking the... More

I went along with my husband and sister for dinner on Saturday evening. Both of their food was ok, however, I ordered an asparagus and gruyere tart for my main course and this was so overcooked and dry I had trouble even getting my knife through it. Serving staff were very pleasant and apologetic and, as I didn't want to... More

Sorry your experience wasn't one to remember for the right reasons. I'll discuss with the staff on duty that night to see if they can help explain why the food wasn't presented as it should have been. Clearly if the feedback I get from customers continues in the same vain as yours I have a big problem. To date the... More

We keep going back to the spinnaker every time we are in Scotland. We contacted the owner to request a table for 24 so we could meet up with family the day before a wedding. We where well looked after by the staff and anything we needed was taken care off. The food was fantastic the sharing platter was amazing... More

Stayed in this hotel with my wife for 3 nights in May 2014. Difficult to fault this intimate hotel. The view over the Firth of Clyde is to die for as is the Scottish breakfast! Did not sample the lunch or dinner menu as we tried local restaurants but the food looked appetising and wholesome. Wide range of beers at... More

No pretentious. An honest hotel and local bar that provides good food. What more can you want? Everyone is welcoming and so have no concern about booking in here. The owner, Stuart, is very engaging and provides all help,that you may need.

Lunched here as a group of 4 during the week and the place was pretty empty. Had a nice window seat and drinks and menus were brought fairly promptly to the table. 2 of us had gammon steaks (large, thick and cooked to juicy perfection, 1 had a vegetarian dish which looked tasty and 1 had the pie of the...

Nice enough place, food and service definitely not so. We visited on Friday 31st October 2014. We were asked if we would like drinks, which we did and requested a pot of tea and a bottle of Kopperberg with a glass without ice. The cider came back WITH ice, no big deal and was easily rectified. When asked if we... More

Sorry your experience seemed so unpleasant it was worth reviewing on Tripadvisor. Thanks for your comments. I need to clarify the steak pie isn't out of a tin. I'm personally not too sure what that tastes or looks like. It's one of the most popular dishes we sell but clearly not to your taste. I'm not too sure how busy... More

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. :)
