Martin was very friendly and let us see the room before we committed to it. He also showed us the lounge and told us we could bring our own drinks in ( they're not... More

Was on Bute for a couple of nights for a bit of peace and quiet on my own. Battery Lodge was a great find! Very homely, friendly and relaxing. The single room was small but just perfect for me and looked out on to the bay. Highly recommended.

We were visiting family on the Isle of Bute and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Even before we got there, the customer service was excellent, as there was a possibility that we had to cancel and Martin was so understanding. Thankfully, we were able to go and were delighted with the welcome of our lovely hosts Martin... More
