Beautifully furnished and very welcoming owners. Great to watch the ferry from the lounge window and a short walk to the town. Visited the island to complete genealogy research and volunteers in Bute Museum very helpful. Too early in year to see inside of Mount Stuart but grounds worth a visit. And seeing sheep close up a real bonus!

We got married in Glasgow and got the ferry to Rothesay the same day (due to nostalgic reasons). I've been to other B&B's in rothesay so I had plenty of questions for Sara who was very accomodating to my queries. She picked out a lovely suite for us with a FANTASTIC sea view, very romantic! We felt very welcomed and...

By far one of the if not the most superior types of accommodation on the island. These stylish suites are great for when I work away. I come and go as I please and don't feel like I am in a hotel at all.

My best friend and I stayed at The Boat House mid January 2017 for 2 nights in suite 2. A perfect welcome upon arrival and the suite was beyond what we expected. Lovely decorations/finishes, great front room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Having stayed at many hotels on Bute previously this is the only place I will now be staying at -...

I stayed here with my dog for two nights. The Boat House deserves a 5 star rating for the quality of its accommodation. There is everything you could possibly want for a comfortable stay. Not only is it spotlessly clean, but the heating is customer controlled and lovely and warm. The owners are most welcoming and ensure you have everything...

My husband and I have visited Rothesay many times in the past, but this is the 1st time at the Boat House, who have turned their B&B in 5 super suites. For those who like the freedom to get up when you like, eat a simple breakfast and come and go as you please...this is THE place to book. Immaculate...

Excellent location, 5 star accommodation all home comforts. All you want from a Hotel except you get an apartment. Everything you need for a light breakfast. Being in Scotland the weather is not always great, so its very important to have good accommodation. It would take a lot to beat The Boat House. The owners can't do enough for you,...
