We visited Greenock at short notice to attend a funeral, Our default choice for a short stay would have been the TV comedian's favourite, but fortunately in this case it was full.
The Tontine is an interesting mixture of Georgian and Art Deco, but as previous reviewers have said the décor is getting rather tired (very tired in some places) but despite that, it was scrupulously clean.
We had a premier bedroom i.e. a standard room. It was well appointed and had good quality wooden furniture with plenty of lighting. The only difficulty was downsizing to a standard width double bed - very crowded when you are used to bigger! The bathroom was finished to a standard to match any good four or five star hotel.
The menu was reasonably varied and seemed to be generally of good quality. Of the two evening meals we had, the homemade steak pie was extremely good but the ribeye steak was disappointing. I would recommend going for the 'homelier' dishes. Breakfast is buffet style with a good choice. Alternatives are available on request What sets this hotel apart is the staff.
No need for a carefully crafted questionnaire asking if you felt they cared or made you feel welcome. Every single staff member we encountered, from cleaner to manager, was friendly, cheerful and informative. They really did give the impression that they enjoyed working there.
The worst thing I encountered was bitter served ice cold. Horrible!
