Our 19 day vacation to Europe was built around the Cowal Highland Games. We had the pleasure of staying at Claire and Graham's Abbot's Brae Hotel for 2 nights during the games. Setting high above the city line with great views of the water, this quaint facility provided everything we needed to relax. The meals (dinner and 2 breakfasts) were... More

Abbots Brae is a lovely gem of a hotel, on a hillside which is really very charming. We had a spacious and beautifully furnished room which had stunning views over the bay. What really made the stay so wonderful was the hospitality of the hotel staff. Graham kindly checked us in and was a lovely personality to encounter. I would... More

I try to always give the positive about places, although in some instances this is difficult. Abbot's Brae is a place that is in transition and the new owners clearly recognise this and are working towards renovating the place, which I think will be great. But at present the decor in our room was dreary and needs an urgent update,... More

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
