“Lovely staff. Great meal.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Spinnaker Hotel a few months ago. It was recommended to us by my sister and brother in law who have eaten there frequently. The food was great and staff were lovely. We have just recently bought a flat in Gourock because of the outstanding views and can't wait for this very friendly hotel to become our local.

We stayed a the Spinnaker Hotel at the beginning of Jan on our way north. The staff were friendly and attentive and the room was lovely. All was well until we went to bed as the room was at the front and the noise from the road was terrible. Unfortunately we must have been practically above the bar as well so the noise from there also bad. We did not complain as there was nothing that could be done but possibly a room choice could be given in future for those of us from the country who are not used to traffic noise!

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back if you are a light sleeper

Sorry you felt the Spinnaker was only worth a poor rating due mainly to the noise. The only way for me to have resolved this would have been to have moved you to one of the rooms at the back of the hotel but they have no view (or none to speak of). It would have been an option had you asked.
The volume of traffic at night for most of the year is pretty low. We are not in built up, heavy commercialised area or overly close to any city centre.
The feedback in general is the rooms at the front are spectacular as much for the view as anything else and more often than not guests specifically ask for them including those who have stayed before.
I appreciate constructive critisism, it can be valuable, but I can't solve a problem if I don't know it exists.
Thanks for taking the time to review the Spinnaker Hotel.

Had a meal with friends the food was good but the service was shocking. Staff took our order and food arrived promptly then that was the last we saw of the staff. We arrived at 19:30 and ate about 20:00. We were still chatting at 22:00 with our plates still on the table and empty glasses. No one came and asked at anytime if we would like any desert. Not what I expected when you read other reviews.

My husband and I stayed there a few years back, he hails from Greenock and I from the USA, cozy room, outstanding location.....and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. We had a lovely dinner, and loved my morning walks.

I didn't use the hotel but went in for dinner. The choice of food was brilliant. I had the breaded mushrooms and mac n cheese and they were both excellent. Great sized portions. staff were also excellent, very friendly and helpful. I live locally and had not been for food in here in ages - will defo not leave it as long next time.

This is a small privately run hotel with a very friendly staff and some of the best views in Scotland.I don't live too far from the Spinnaker so I have only used the rooms on the odd occasion but have not hesitated in recommending it to visiting family and friends over the years when I haven't had had enough room to put them up myself and without exception have all spoken very highly of it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the river with the mountains in the background.can't be beaten!

Four of us went for a meal and drinks, I was the only newcomer. A friendly welcome from the staff and 4 cracking meals. Prompt and efficient service, great views across the water. Look forward to the next time.

Really appreciate the positive feedback particularly after a recent review that was less than complimentary. I have already responded to it.
I'm really keen to develop and improve the food side of the Spinnaker. If you have any suggestions or ideas that you think would help do this I'd be delighted to hear them. It might be on service, price, choice or presentation to mention a few things. I understand everybody has different tastes and expectations. I can't necessarily please everyone but there's no harm in trying.
Thank you again for your review.
