This was our third visit to Duncreggan House, and as always, proprietors Suzanna and Mick were really welcoming and gave us the run of the houseand gardens. Tea and scones on arrival in the conservatory (with its amazing views) gave them a chance to make some local recommendations to us - Benmore Botanical gardens are a must see and a shopping trip to Glasgow by ferry and train was great fun. The house has 5 bedrooms, three are ensuite and one also has a roof terrace and the other two have private bathrooms for the sole use of the occupants but they are not ensuite. We've stayed in several of them on our visits! Most have great views of the Loch. Breakfast was a full scottish (nice touch - we could order exactly what we wanted the night before, plus cereals, fresh fruit and limitless tea and coffee are all served in the grand dining room of the house. Guest are encourged to use the house and there is a comfortable lounge (again great views and amazing architectural features such as celing mouldings and fireplaces) and the sunny conservatory overlooking the garden and loch to choose from, tea and coffee is not only available in your room it is also in the dining room should you fancy a cup at any time, the B&B holds a license so a glass of wine before dinner or a scotch afterwards is no problem, Mick can whip up dinner on request. Top travel tips - Dunoon is reached either by passenger foot ferry from Gourock - next to the railway station - or combined car and passenger ferry from Hunters point - just outside Gourock - buy tickets from shops in Gourock rather than on the boat - saves money!
If your looking for a B&B that feels more like staying with friends in their comfortable family scottish country house then this is the place for you - Fans of anonomous corporate blandness should look elsewhere!
