Wanted a cheap hotel for a night in the area and this hotel was perfect for that. Wasn't easily identifiable easily on arrival in the dark but plenty of free parking right outside. The welcome was friendly, the rooms dated but clean. A good location with a decent Chinese just over the road. There is a full bar for those...

As an actor, I seem to spend half my life in hotels, and when I agreed to spend my panto season in Greenock, my expectations regarding accommodation were not high. BOY, was I in for a surprise! The Bay Hotel in Greenock has got to be one of my best ever hotel experiences. The room was lovely, the food delicious,...

Having stayed at the Bay hotel in July pre-cruise we decided to have an overnight here before travelling further North and also meet with some friends. It may not be the flashiest hotel but the position, staff (Sharon is great) and especially the food are amazing. The food was of a brilliant standard and could command much higher prices if...

My husband and I had reserved a double room. The room was small which we really didn't mind,but the double bed was up against a wall and in order to get out of the bed we had to disturb each other.This really was not acceptable. The lighting in the room was poor and the extractor fan wasn't working in the...

Not easy to find in the dark, could do with some outside lighting and a lit name board. Reception is in the bar area. Executive double room is good value with four poster bed. Adequate tea and coffee facilities and bathroom tidy with good shower. Room rate includes breakfast which came quickly and was well cooked. Not sure about the...

Hotel is lovely, nice decor and very friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful. The room we were given was massive and although cold at first it heat up quickly once we shut the windows. It's right next to the waterfront which is great for nice walks and beautiful views. About a 250 yard walk is...

Struggled to find as there is no sign at front of hotel and frontage bears no resemblance to photo on website. The website claims that food is available in the evenings. However, when I arrived at just before 8 p.m I was told they had stopped serving food that night. Taken into a lift which was stinking of cigarettes. Room...
