Was using the hotel to deliver...

Owners should be very proud of their staff as we couldn't ask for anything more, they were very friendly and nothing was a bother to them. Enjoyed an incredible meal in Ghillies which is...

This is a Clean and Comfortable Hotel - no issues. Would I stay another night, yes, but not much happening - low season outside I could not fault the place - but it good hotel, clean and tidy. There are stair at main entrance, so I would check if you have mobility needs.

The hotel is slightly dated but as are many parts of Rothesay (the country side and views are gorgeous around the island). The hotel is fine, a little green with simple sheets and brown blanket and two flat pillows. We did not have a sea view and there was a bar on our side that played loud music through the...

Beautiful hotel with an incredible view. Rooms were very classical just ideal for a romantic weekend Food was good but basic The staff were great however was shocked by the o.c.d of the morning waitress. I understand the need of cleanness in the hotel but to organise my plate while eating did shock me. I will def vist again
