Booked this hotel at the last moment due to a change in plans.Purpose of our visit to Bute was to do some walking.Location of hotel superb and the room was clean and tidy.
The owners were very kind and attentive. Had dinner at the Hotel which was a treat and breakfast was just as good .Had agreat day on Bute with great weather beautiful scenery and a very nice hotel . Unfortunately could only stay one night but hope to return to the lovely island of Bute and the Cannon House Hotel in the near future.

I found the accommodations to be more than adequate and when I commented that I couldn't say warm, Graham was prompt to bring up a space heater for me. Everything was within walking distance and if it wasn't, bus service was readily available. Beautiful island, took the Open Top Bus Tour to see some areas I wouldn't normally have been able to visit and took the tour bus to Mount Stuart. This tour is a must if you visit the island. I found the shop keepers to be very friendly and informative. Recommended the island to a well-travelled Brittish gentleman I sat next to when travelling to Rome after my stay in Scotland. He was most impressed with the pictures and would give a stay serious consideration.

We were made most welcome on our arrival by the owners Graham and Fiona. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute of our visit.

We had a large room on the first floor overlooking Rothesay Bay which was spacious and comfortable with an excellent ensuite bathroom. The views over the bay were wonderful.
Cannon House Hotel is only a short walk from the ferries, stopping point for the Waverley, taxis, cinema, museum and local shops. The local bus stops are opposite the ferries and we used the buses a lot. The 490 bus ( different on Sundays) runs from the top to the bottom of the island hourly during the day and even drops you off at the Visitor Centre for Mount Stuart,and at the Ascog Fernery. There is even a small bus running to the top of Canada Hill where people used to go to catch a last glimpse of their family and friends as they departed on the boats to Canada. The next stop would be the colourful Ardencraig gardens and the mile woodland walk down to the town The bus drivers are very friendly and helpful and are proud to show off their beautiful island.

We visited a few places to eat during our stay in Rothesay but we really enjoyed returning to Cannon House Hotel for our evening meal knowing that the food and drink would be great and the ambience very friendly.

Graham and Fiona are great hosts and it was enjoyable meeting and seeing some of the local people having dinner there. Fiona makes full use of the fresh local products and produces delicious meals.

When we where out and about in Bute people would ask us where we were staying and they all spoke highly of Cannon House and it's food. There are not that many good places to eat in Rothesay so we were pleased to be at Cannon House.
.

It would be nice to be able to return soon.

The hotel was well-kept and clean. The rooms were nothing special but perfectly good for a short stay. We had a lovely view over Rothesay Bay. The owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not great - way over-cooked mushrooms, an over-poached egg, weak coffee.
