Having found the Guest House online we are happy to report that we loved our stay here. The service was excellent, rooms beautiful and the breakfast was just what the doctor ordered. We would recommend this accomodation to anybody visiting the island and looking for a central location. My wife and I will certainly be back!!

We had a lovely stay at Howards Way and will definitely be returning next year! Very clean and comfortable and service was excellent. Very friendly owner who made us feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Ask for the newly refurbished room at the front of the guest house with the balcony and decking

Just back from a lovely weekend in Rothesay ( 17th/19th June ) and we stayed in The Howards way B&B, loved how close this was to the ferry terminal ( 3 min walk ) and the views from the front of the B&B were amazing, the rooms were very clean apon arrival and in the morning we woke up to a lovely breakfast, this B&B is great value for money and we would be staying here again for sure when we go back in the near future, really nice couple that run it as well.

Not sure what the review below meant - they didn't even stay at this wonderful b&b!

Anyway - stayed at this b&b Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th......and it was so nice we stayed a third night. The owner Roy was really nice and looked after us, cooking us a very nice breakfast, his knowledge of the island is fab. We booked the best room in the b&b and you will not find better views. We will defo stay here again.

Best b&b on Bute by far!!

Looking for accomodation on Sunday night, phoned this establishment, and left a message on the ansaphone and asked them to call back.

No call back received.

In my opinion, if they can't be bothered to return calls to prospective clients, then its likely that the stay would be rather uncaring too.

Saw the property later and it said "vacancies", so obviously they are not that keen for your custom.

We stayed at the Howards Way guest house for a long weekend to relax and take in the sights of Bute. Immediately upon our arrival we were made welocme by Sarah and Roy. The rooms were spotlesly clean and well decorated, with coffee making facilities and TV.

Roys knowledge of the Island made our stay much more productive as he knew the places of interest. Sarah's breakfast could only be described as perfect and kept us going most of the day.

A nice touch was the packed lunch on offer and saved us time in not having to find a cafe for a late afternoon snack.

Thank you to you both - Mark & Maria
