My husband and I gave been visiting Rothesay since we were both children , and holidayed for many years with our children. We remember when this hotel lay empty for some years and were delighted to see it back in business. We had a short break here whilst family were staying elsewhere on the island. The sea view room was spotless with ample towels and toiletries, a bowl of fruit, water and the usal welcome tray. The staff friendly and the good breakfast made even better by the lovely view from the dining room. The hotel is accessed by a rather steep flight of indoor stairs to the reception and public rooms, there is then another one or two flights of stairs to the bedrooms, so if you have walking difficulties be warned as there is no lift. It was a pity cause my mum is wheel chair bound and we would have loved to have taken her for a meal in the wonderful dining room. Unusually for a hotel there was no phone in the room and a sign in reception gave access to the night porter as a mobile number, this might have been a problem in an emergency. My only other silly little niggle is that the piped radio coming through to the main rooms was Chris Evans on radio 1 it might have been nicer and more relevant to have had one of Scottish radio stations playing.
