Missed opportunity to impress
Room was clean, however bedside light wasnt working. Request made for walk in shower due to mobility issues but wasn't available. No milk sachets in the hotel for the complimentary tea/coffee. Was advised that there were 5 steps, however there were at least 15 steps to the room which due mobility issues presented hazard. Breakfast was meant to be included however breakfast consisted of a packet of sandwiches, a bottle of juice, crisps and a packet of biscuits in a brown bag. Overall, disappointing.

Excellent stay " doon the watter "
Manager and Shona on reception were extremely nice and helpful, as were all the staff we came in contact with. The hotel was in an excellent position with a wonderful outlook on the Bay. our room was excellent, but in spite of being very busy Shona assisted us by upgrading to room with sea view ( Angus ) as soon as it became available without charge. Would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone wishing a break in Dunoon. Breakfast excellent and plentiful. Bar service excellent and moderately priced.
