Thank you for your review we do appreciate your comments but when you booked accommodation at our other place which does offer a cooked breakfast, and when the other 2 couples phoned to book the Bute House it was decided by them that it would be better if you were all together as you were attending a funeral, you were...

I had the dubious pleasure of staying here with 4 young children as part of a visit to see an old friend. Initially I phoned another location that is apparently owned by the same people but they couldn't fit the 5 of us in the one room, so they recommended the Bute. The room we were promised was unavailable as... More

We recommend the Boat House Hotel as an ideal place to stay in Bute. It is simple, but very clean and comfortable with an excellent breakfast. We view from the rooms at the front of the hotel is marvellous. Free parking outside is a bonus and for those arriving on foot, the ferry is a short walk away.

We had an excellent stay. Harry and Harry were very good in welcoming us. We had a family comfortable room ensuite which made our vacation very relaxing. The b&b is walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants, and only 3 minutes from the port. We can't ask for more!!! ems, manu, che and ely

I enjoyed staying here as the owner was very friendly. The rooms are very clean and well presented. It is just a stones throw away from the ferry port. I will defiantly be staying here again :)

We stayed at this family run hotel for four days and we will definitely go back. The location is good, it is close to the pier where the ferry comes in and its close to all the towns amenities. The owners are very helpful and the breakfasts are good. It's very clean and well maintained.

“We had a seaview room. It was large and comfortable and sitting in the bay window was a delight with a beautiful view of the sea and the ferries and paddle steamers coming into Rothsay.”
