“Not on my wish list”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Just returned on 20.3.2013 from 5 day break with D. Urquhart (which turned out to be
4½ day). Don’t even consider room 10, it was freezing cold, as was the Entertainment &
Dining Room. A request to Reception produced a convector heater for our bedroom, which
we left on day and night. The Bathroom was a ’slit’. Squeeze round door before you could
shut it. Toilet accommodated a medium sized person, but was kept clean. Bay window in
room but view was a brick wall & rubbish strewn garden. Meal portions were very small &
due to language barriers I never once received the breakfast I had actually ordered. My
husbands view of the £1.50 drink tariff a ’waste of time’. The Tours were pathetic & the
Driver told us nothing of the area. Regular traveller to Dunoon so this was a very disappointing
experience, one which we shall not be repeating anytime soon with this Company. Hotel in
need of much improvement & upgrading. Really need transport to get to Town area as steep
incline up to Hotel. Stayed here many times years ago & can’t believe how it has deteriorated!

Room Tip: Not room 10!

have just returned from a five day trip with D,URQHART at this hotel and on reading reviews before we went , must admit to be being a bit doubtful, but had a nice warm room & clean bed & for what you are paying , you should not have many complaints , also food was good , & entertainment first class , yes it is an old hotel , & parts of it could do with some tlc , .We were not able to have a room with a view , which would have been lovely , but must mention the staff who went out of their way to help , all in this was our first visit to DUNOON & would hope to go back sometime,

Room Tip: if you can request a front room , view is lovely I believe

At all costs don't even consider this place. Food - indelible, rooms - musty with damp patches, dirty windows. Beer is £1.50 but even if it were free I would still run a mile. The only saving grace (if there is one) is that the view is fantastic; that's if you can see out the windows.

This was our third visit.
Decor and furnishings start to to 'show their age ' (I should talk!). Beginning to look quite 'shabby'.
That said, cleanliness is not a problem. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food good...evidence of some 'portion control' but the portions are still adequate with extra if requested.
Enjoyed our stay and will probably return at some time.

Room Tip: If on the first floor try NOT to get a room over the entrance which is where the smokers congrgate.

We spent the weekend of 22nd- 25th February at the hotel. We found the reception area, ballroom and toilets very cold. Food was adequate but did not like having to make a choice of evening meal first thing in the morning!!
Prices in the bar are fine (£1.50 ) no complaints from hubby.
Manageress and all her staff very helpful.....will be back.

My husband and I spent from th 22nd February to th 25th of February on an Urquharts
self drive and loved every minute of our stay. Granted the hotel is in need of upgrading
but room was warm clean sheets on bed nice white towels which were replaced daily.
The food was adequate enough choice for a person to select a meal, the roast beef and th
pork chops delicious add to this the £1 50. bar prices, what more can a body expect for the
price paid.
Staff all very friendly and helpful, entertainment good especially Eriskay Lilt band.
Manageress very helpful at all times nothing too much trouble for her ,lovely person.
In my opinion if people want five star treatment then pay five star prices.
Will return to this hotel again.

Room Tip: Sea view room is worth paying the extra for

We just had a weekend break in this hotel and we won't be back. We were in room 33 which was a large room with a single & double bed. The floorboards are in need of urgent repair. When we walked upon them it was as if we were walking thru snow....crunching sound....this became unbearable after a short while. We were given the last room available so there was no point in asking to be moved.

As for the food......fish & chips the 1st nite....frozen fast food...of the poorest quality...followed by peach sponge & custard. We didn't find a peach ...Only a bowl of stodge.....2nd nite ....diced steak & gravy....3peices of diced steak and the odd mushroom ....

We left the table hungry every nite. As for breakfast.....this won't set you up for the day...I small slice bacon 1 small sausage fried egg and tinned tomatoes.....again....we left hungry.

It cost us £152.50 for the 2 days....I think it's time to give the paying guests a wee bit more quality.
No such thing as warm toast in this hotel....

The staff were all very nice .......but we won't be back !!!
