Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A gem of a find in Dunoon, staff very helpful and informative, loved the place. I asked questions about the hotel where I was staying and they told me the history of it.

A beautiful historic building set in lovely garden. The museum tells the story of Dunoon's changes from neolithic times to modern day in an interesting display of exhibits. There is also a nice gift shop. Towards the end of the visit is a fun quiz.

We came over from Clydebank, especially to see the castle. Imagine our dismay when we found it to be closed for the winter. On your website, there is no mention of this.

A great LITTLE museum. It looks fab with the surrounding the gardens and the views across the bay are stunning from the lookout.
Its only £3 per adult to enter the museum which is good value as you could spend a good hour or so reading about the local history, looking at the local artifacts and there are some interactive exhibits that the children would enjoy also

I received a warm welcome and when the gentleman working there found out I was in Dunoon to write about the pier for my blog, he gave me lots of useful and interesting information. He clearly knows his local history inside out and was very enthusiastic about it. He was very helpful and informative. It's a nice museum with displays about the Inverclyde ferries and Victorian room displays.

Thank you very much for such a kind review. It is appreciated. I have drawn it to the attention of the two young ladies who also work here just to annoy them! It was a pleasure to help you and I trust that your project goes well.
