We visited Dunoon for a birthday party at "The Braes" in Dunoon and stayed for two nights at Foxbank. The owner Mrs Murchison went out of her way to make us welcome and did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and easy - from ordering us taxis to giving us free access to wifi - nothing was too...

Breakfast is still cooked to order and wonderful, however, no evening home cooking in sight during my stay. Owner is very friendly and helpful, unfortunately, she overstepped the bounds big time one evening ... not enough space to go into detail! My room was clean and tidy, except for the cobwebs on the ceiling and hair blocking the shower plug... More

The "Foxbank" B&B Guest House, right on the border of Hunter's Quay with Kirn and Dunoon, is perfectly located for ferries from Glasgow/Gourock, and is just 20 minutes walk from the centre of Dunoon. There are buses every half hour to Dunoon or to Sandbank and the rest of Cowal ... The "Foxbank", run by cheerie Lawther Musrchison, is soooo... More

Spent 4 nights while visiting friends in Innellan. Very well looked after, home baking at supper time, home made bread at breakfast. Full cooked breakfast of your choice, warm comfortable rooms, Right on the promenade overlooking the Firth of Clyde, views stupendous. Very pleasant and friendly proprietors, in fact it was like "coming home".

A friend and I stayed at Foxbank on the last night of a motorcycle trip round Scotland. We found the accommodation very biker-friendly, with off-road hard-standing for the bikes and spacious rooms for the riders. Mr & Mrs Lawther were extremely welcoming and, all in all, it's a place to be recommended for bikers.

“The Twin Room and the Double/Family room have the fantastic views of the Clyde and its bustling traffic. But don't forget to take waterproof walking/golfing suits - it rains a lot in this part of the world, and an umbrella isn't, really, enough!”
