5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I am a bit late writing this review as it is actually a year since we stayed here and I keep forgetting.
Missed the boat to Bute so this wonderful convenient little place tucked away is a great place to stay.
Warm and cosey.
Lovely lady.
nice furnishings.
Good company.
Can you ask more. Delightful.
I am off in rush to see if I can get my sister booked in now !

Room Tip: Very cosy nice rooms back or front

One of the very best B&B we have stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble and the room were delightful as were the hosts. We arrived on motorbikes which were safety stowed in the garage and our wet clothing placed in the drying room. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were treated wonderfully well. Will definitely return and recommend this place to everyone travelling to Inverkip.

We have once again received a GOLD award from Visit Scotland for Service and Hospitality. An inspector from Visit Scotland spends a night in the house incognito and issues us with the star rating. I f he or she feels that the establishment deserves a gold rating he or she gives their findings to a committee to decide. During this process the reviews on Tripadvisor are taken into consideration before awarding gold. I would like to thank you for taking the time and trouble to put in a review and for helping us to retain our GOLD award. Apart from the importance of the accolade it gives us great satisfaction to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay at The Foresters. We hope you are well and happy and that we will once again have the pleasure of welcoming you to The Foresters. Thank you Jim and Rhona

After looking in a rainy day for a place to spend a night during our trip in Scotland, had a very good experience in Foresters. Wonderful and charming, very warm welcome, all details tidy and refined!

Spotless, comfortable, good value for money and very pleasant, friendly owners...what more could one want! From Inverkip it's an easy drive to Glasgow or Ayrshire and the ferries to the Clyde Islands are only minutes away. A brilliant place to stay.

My wife and I stayed for another weekend at this fabulous guest house. The welcome when we arrived, the exceptionally clean room, the breakfast and the wave off in the morning made us feel like friends.
I am sure we will return again.

A perfectly enjoyable two-night stay at this spotlessly clean B&B. The couple who run this establishment, Jim and Rhona Wallace, make you extremely welcome, and provide an excellent cooked breakfast in lovely, cosy surroundings. (Even the peach-coloured carpet in the hallway added to the warm welcome we received on arriving.) The bedroom that we were in was very tastefully decorated, and the bathroom was immaculate, boasting a lovely walk-in shower. (As an added extra, the twin beds that we slept on were so-o-o-o-o comfortable.) Given a key for our own convenience, we could come and go as we pleased, and weren't disturbed in any way. An experience worth repeating!

Everything about this B&B is perfect. Our room was a good size, spotlessly clean and all we could wish. Added to this was a warm welcome and superb breakfast - don't miss the black pudding! Excellent value for money and a great location, we took the train from Inverkip the short journey to the ferry across to Bute. Rhona's local knowledge was very helpful and we'd recommend this gem to anyone.
