This hotel is quite dated. The carpet up the stairs to the reception is worn and is symbolic of the rest of the hotel. Our room was clean but, again, dated. The bed clothes were very old (although clean). The cushions laid on the bed were ancient. The shower was good although the en suite was tiny. Overall, this is...

This hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and with a fine view out over the bay. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was good. The only niggle I have is that the carpet on the stairs was showing its age - I think it's due for replacement!

Had a lovely time at the Victoria hotel in Rothesay. The hotel was quaint and rustic, with lots of personal touches, just what you'd expect in a beautiful Scottish location. It was well maintained and spotlessly clean. The staff were warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food and service with a smile was excellent and Ghillies...

This hotel is right across the road from the ferry, so no long walk. We had a beautiful view across the sea. Extremely clean with gleaming white sheets and towels. The bathroom was large and the bedroom was adequate. Carpet was slightly worn but apart from that everything was great. A cooked breakfast was included in the price. There is...

Was using the hotel to deliver...

Had a great two nights staying in the Victoria Hotel. Great location, opposite the ferry port. Had a wonderful experience from check in to check out. 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.
