My wife and I spent 1 night at Abbott's Brae, had dinner that evening and breakfast the following day. We were warmly welcomed by Graham and treated to a very tasty dinner that evening, which was well cooked and very well presented. Our room had a garden view and was clean and very comfortable (although the bed was a little... More

I spent one night there after a 14 hour flight from Durban South Africa. Warm welcome from hosts and comfortable rom with views over the Clyde Estuary. A bit far out of Dunoon to walk to but taxis freely available at short notice. Wouldy there again if I visit those parts.

We had a warm welcome from Clare and Graham and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room, Lamont, was very spacious and comfortable with a glorious view over the Firth of Clyde. The ample and delicious cooked breakfasts set us up for the day with carefully sourced food, e.g. Stornoway Black Pudding. We invited relatives to share the... More

Stayed at Abbot's Brae for an overnight stop on the way to Skye. What a great start to a holiday. We asked for a river view and got a room overlooking the Clyde through the trees - fabulous. Room was lovely and bed really comfy. We were greeted and looked after by owner Graham, a really friendly and helpful host.... More

Many Thanks for your very kind words, we are delighted you enjoyed your night with us here at Abbots Brae. We do intentionally keep the menu small so that we can provide high quality freshly made food with local produce and your right the fact that Graham is a good cook does help a wee bit!

We spent two nights in the Abbott’s Brae in May and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found Graham and Clare wonderful hosts. Our room (Lamont) was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view over the Firth of Clyde. We had dinner on both nights and found the food, which Graham cooks with great enthusiasm and no little skill, delicious. A wonderful... More

While in need of a cosmetic polish our welcome was warm and genuine and our hosts went out of their way to to give us a lunch snack. It quickly became obvious that this was not something they normally provided. The dinner at night was a delight as we were given a genuine curry served with excellent chapatis. The rating... More
