I had not made a booking for the night required and was disappointed to find little accommodation anywhere in Gourock, until I chanced upon the Spinnaker. It was a sweet wee hotel with views across the Clyde with a good restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Wifi did not work in my room but I worked from a quiet table in...

Booked 2 en-suite rooms £90 and £75 each for 1 night. Great views over Firth of Clyde. Staff fine. But overall the hotel has some issues. Carpet on staircase frayed/bare and could be dangerous. My 84 yr old mother removed her shoes so she wouldn`t risk slipping down the stairs. Rooms themselves very drab, basic and tired. Bathroom in Room...

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I have to agree that I am often defensive of negative reviews but I also say that I'm happy to accept criticism when justified. I am happy to look at each of your points - I agree the carpet leading to the bedrooms in the hotel now needs replaced. The...

I almost can't begin to say how disappointing we found our stay in this 'hotel'. When I booked, I emphasised this was our first visit to the area and was assured the room would be quiet and overlooking the water. The exterior is very run down and there is nowhere to park but on the street - if you're very...

SpinnyGourock, Owner at The Spinnaker Hotel, responded to this review

After reading this review I decided to talk to a couple of members of staff to see if they could remember who had such an unpleasant stay and to see if it was the same guests that I thought it might have been as I have nobody booked under the name Anna B. After discussing it I think I know...

We were only at the Spinnaker for a night and it was fine. The room was just old and dated and not in a charming way. It was very quiet though and the staff all super friendly and helpful. The breakfast we had in the morning was quite good.

I recommend this place for a spot of lunch on a sunny day in gourock, although I haven't stayed at the hotel I visit here often for meals and drinks, and have always had a lovely experience, The staff are friendly and it has a Great atmosphere and the food is always great,

I visited this hotel for food with my parents and daughter after a long day out. We were tired and hungry and found this hotel to be very welcoming and friendly. We ordered from the special 2 course deal menu and all our food was delicious. The fish was especially good. The waiting staff were so helpful, friendly and chatty...

Thank you for the complimentary review. Sorry about the wine. Not sure if the nice weather we've had lately helped the wine sales. I hope so.

Oh! The photo is of the room we had which was marred by misted double glazing but the view across the bay is great and, if you're lucky you can eat dinner and breakfast looking at the view. Clean updated decor, tea and coffee in room. This is a pub restaurant on the sea front which has a mean road...

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately we sometimes do run out of items on the menu as well as at the bar. Easter Sunday was a wonderfully sunny day in Gourock this year and beneficial to business. The down side of the surprisingly nice weather combined with Easter Sunday meant it was one of those days we run out of...

Stayed here with friends overnight and booked this as the hotel said they had free wifi and parking. On arrival, we found that parking was on the street and it was difficult to find a space. There was no reception desk but check in was no problem as staff were very friendly. One room was a good size overlooking the...

Thank you for your comments. I agree i need to get the wifi signal fixed. I have tried numerous things and spent money on WIFI extender kits but this seems only to work short term. I will need to call in a company fix it and get some sort of guarantee with it. Everything cost money. The rooms at the...

I went along with my husband and sister for dinner on Saturday evening. Both of their food was ok, however, I ordered an asparagus and gruyere tart for my main course and this was so overcooked and dry I had trouble even getting my knife through it. Serving staff were very pleasant and apologetic and, as I didn't want to...

Sorry your experience wasn't one to remember for the right reasons. I'll discuss with the staff on duty that night to see if they can help explain why the food wasn't presented as it should have been. Clearly if the feedback I get from customers continues in the same vain as yours I have a big problem. To date the...
