Reviewed June 29, 2011

I was staying on business and found the hotel to be clean (my main priority) friendly, lovely food (the lasagne was excellent). I wished I was on hols as I oculd have made this a holiday base. I've recommended it for fellow colleagues who will be working in Dunoon shortly.

Booked via Telephone, one week prior. (Very Friendly and Understanding of our needs for a family room with a cot )

On Arrival was welcomed by the Owners and shown around the Hotel (Characteristic 1860s Seafronted Hotel), we were then shown personally to our room

Room was Very Clean and Very Comfortable and had everything we needed.

We were made welcome at all times by the owners and they were accomadating to our 3 year old son, and provided him with colouring books and pencils to keep him entertained.

The Bar is well stocked, and the Beer was nice :) Views are Amazing of the River Clyde

After a very comfortable nights sleep we all had a lovely breakfast, which was served with Great Customer Service and a Personable Smile and Conversation that just does'nt come with the bigger chains of hotels.

Would Recommend Time and Again....

Thanks for a lovely nights stay in Dunoon.

I stayed here for three nights in September 2009. Though a solo traveller I was given a big twin room with superb views over the Firth of Clyde. The room was fine and the beds comfortable, although the en-suite shower room was slightly cramped. The breakfasts were excellent, cooked to order, although a greater variety of fruit, cereals etc would have been welcome. The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming. A great place for a relaxing stay at a very reasonable cost.

Took a chance and stayed at hotel despitre comments dated back to 2006.
Hotel is now completely refurbished.
We had a wonderful stay. Food was well above average, staff were very helpfull. The owners of the hotel were really family orientated. Would have no hesitation in returning to the hotel later in the year and recommending to others.
The 2006 reviewers really want to try the hotel again as I am sure it is not the hotel from hell as they explained but now a hotel from Heaven.

Just returned from a 3 night trip to this hotel. Be warned it was a holiday from hell.

The room was in urgent need of upgrade and decoration, the kettle, bedside light and television didn't work. The bathroom was that small that you had to open the bathroom door to get in and out of the shower.

The food was the worst I have ever had in any hotel and the waitress although friendly was useless. We had to ask three times for everything we wanted. one night I had my main meal ten minutes before the vegatables arrived after asking several times. Very often the tables where not set and your meal would be brought but no cutlery until you asked.

Worst off all was the Friday and Saturday nights when loud music was played until well after midnight. Not I might add for the hotel guests but for the locals, infact on the Saturday night all the tables in the lounge had reserved on them for the locals and the guests had to sit in the conservatory with the door open to allow the smokers in and out. One of the locals said that they used the hotel because it was the only one in the area that allowed children in which was obvious with the amount of under tens running round.

The only good part was the breakfast of the Sunday morning when the chef didn't turn in and the owner cooked breakfast. You could actualy eat it.

Please don't go the hotel is scruffy not very clean and very, very noisy.

Stayed in this hotel for one night in July 2006. Room was grotty. Window would not close properly; had to stuff toilet paper in it to stop draught coming in. Toilet seat was unstable. Shower not very clean, as was rest of ensuite. Food was mediocre, with virtually no choice at all! Only heating in our room was an old convector heater which had seen better days, and the public areas were heated by portable calor gas super ser heaters!! Certainly not one for the faint hearted. Take my advice - give this one a wide berth.
