Enjoyed a lovely stay here while at a wedding on Bute! Our room was lovely, spacious, clean with a stunning big balcony looking over the water front! Staff were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would recommend to all. Thank you

The owners were pleasant and friendly. Cant fault their hospitality. Room was cat-swinging size. Bathroom large and ok. Room clean. bar has excellent beer. Location very good, about 200 yards from ferry and centre of town. Bute has a bygone era feel.

Nice welcome.....There was some misunderstanding around this, and my partner was seeking clarity and instead of explaining it clearly and in a calm manner the owner...

Just returned from Howards Way and cannot recommend it enough. Great hosts and a super room (room 7) with spectacular views from our balcony and huge picture window. Spotlessly clean and a wonderful comfy bed. Could not have asked for more. Just make sure you are hungry when you go to breakfast as portions will certainly keep you going all...
