“Comfortable stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2011

Owners were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was very nice. The building was in need of some TLC, but the bedroom and lounge were in good condition.

We enjoyed our stay in the Glendale. Clean, comfy, all the amenities. However, we were stuck on the island due to severe winds and the ferries stopped running. We needed to get off the island, and our host drove us all the way to Glasgow so we could make our flight! He had to stay the night away from his home just for us. Their unexpected empathy and concern and is most appreciated.

I stayed here for 2 nights and found it very comfortable claen and hospitable.
The full breakfast was enormous. There is a comfortable and large resident lounge.
There are a couple of parking spaces in front of the guesthouse and there is plenty of free on-street parking.

I stayed at the Glendale for a week and was very happy there. It is perfectly located five minutes walk along from the harbour and all the amenities. There is a fabulous upstairs lounge for the use of visitors and the views from the bay window are tremendous.All the vistors commented on what a lovely room it was.

The hosts were welcoming and friendly and always available to give advice and information.

The breakfasts were a pleasure, with lots of choice and excellent quality. The rooms were clean and careful servicing was done every day.
Tthe owner believes he has been adversely affected by one negative report placed on the site some months ago. I am not in a place to comment on that but I have worked in the tourism industry for the past twelve years and stay in a lot of places I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Glendale.
From Bute I went on to Arran and stayed in a hotel which was more expensive than the Glendale but I am afraid inferior in every respect. I would like to thank the hosts for a grerat stay.

This is a very good value for money 4 star guest house. I was away with my partner for a short break for a couple of days, and we felt the service was excellent. Room was huge and had a brilliant view over Rothesay Bay. Very comfortable. Great En-suite bathroom - very modern. The breakfast was absolutely brilliant (full scottish). Set us up for the day. Would definately reccommend this guest house and return again.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in August. We had always fancied staying here because it's such an unusual looking building and we weren't disappointed. Our room was absolutely massive and the view was as good as it gets. Can't comment on breakfast as it's not something I indulge in but for comfort and location you can't beat this place. The hosts were lovely too.
