“Nice surroundings”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Was in for a quick bite to eat for early dinner.

Staff were very nice and attentive. Have been to Tontine lots of times and as usual the food was nice.

My only complaint and it small is, I like my red wine served in a large glass however whether you drink red or white glass sizes are all the same, just my preference or maybe Tontine would take this on board and offer large glasses with red.

Have been at The Tontine twice in recent weeks. First time was for a meal and drink and everything was excellent, service good, friendly staff and excellent food. The second time was for a function and what a difference. Indifferent staff, slow service at bar, but the biggest let-down was the food at the function. The cock-a-leekie soup was just a plate of rice with some stock and the main course beef was tough as old boots and sadly not a patch on the excellent meal had only a week or two earlier. My two companions were both of the same opinion. On the plus side one of my party asked for gluten free food and was accommodated without difficulty. Did not stay in hotel but believe the rooms are excellent.

Previously have stayed at the 'chain' hotels in Greenock for business. Decided to try the Tontine and found it excellent. Handy location near town and esplanade, good room with excellent large shower, very splendid bar and restaurant and the food was properly cooked (not out of a packet!) and very good. All looked recently renovated. Free wifi.

Stayed here another twice over Christmas 2013. We managed to get the same room as last year and can only describe the stay as great. Staff were very friendly everywhere and breakfast was great although we missed the Haggis that was on occasionally last year. Bar serves a great pint of beer.

We had Christmas lunch with Family, but the hotel was very, very busy on Christmas Day. Great to see that.

Frankly, good non-chain hotels are rare, especially in Greenock, but this is a very good hotel

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Premium room in the main Building

Stayed at the Tontine on business this summer and really enojoyed the hotel. Good food, great location, and great service staff. Had some internet problems and they went out of their way to get me online and working. Good food at the hotel and several great places within walking distance. For a different place to stay instead of a run of the mill hotel this is a place you should visit.

Room Tip: The rooms to the back will be quieter and you won't be bothered by the lights on the main street...

Overnight stay on business in December 2013. Nothing to dislike but nothing to recommend it either. Room was clean and warm. Shower was spacious and hot. TV was small and restricted in choice of channels. Wi-fi didn't work for my Mac. Standard breakfast. The locals were all friendly, but I couldn't get out of Greenock fast enough. Went for a stroll before dinner and on the High Street I recognised every single (chain) store, every shred of individuality has been scoured from this town. Glasgow is a fun, vibrant city, but the surrounding towns are grim, Stalinist even.
