Reviewed 16 June 2008

My Wife and I held our wedding reception at the Abbot's Brae, we took over the whole hotel for a Saturday and Sunday and couldn't have been happier with the service we received. Colin and Christine went out of their way to make our stay just perfect, lots of unexpected little extra touches like personalised welcome cards in all our guest's rooms made everything all the more enjoyable. We had some guests with special dietary requirements and they were very helpful with coming up with menus for our meals that would suit everyone. The hotel itself is small but perfectly formed, the views are simply amazing and the food and service excellent, highly recommended!

Just returned from a three night stay and we could not
have asked for a better hotel. The room was fantastic, the food
wonderfully cooked and the welcome and attention to detail by Christine and Colin, the owners, and their staff second to none.

Very friendly hotel with a wonderful restaurant. Food is cooked by the owner and is excellent. We thought the steaks the best cooked we had ever had and the Stilton Quiche was truly special. Very large double bed in large, high ceilinged room. Games and books available for guests and views are spectacular. Current owners only been in situ for 18 months therefore disregard any reviews prior to this. Lovely grounds and breakfasts large, well cooked and nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended by very fussy people!

We spent 5 days over my birthday & Christmas at Abotts Brae. We had a wonderful time from the moment we arrived to the day we left. Nothing was too much trouble for Christine & Colin. The rooms were lovely; they were warm & bright with wonderful sea views. The food was plentiful, well cooked and with a very varied menu. All the ingredients were locally sourced and the taste was truly lip smacking! The best christmas that we have had for a very long time. It certainly met & surpassed our expectations.

We have already booked again to see them for 2008 and we are recommending the hotel to everyone we like! Thank you Christine & Colin.

I stayed at the Abbots Brae to celebrate my 21st with my entire family. We filled all the rooms and the service was excellent. The attention to detail and the way hosts, Colin and Christine, went out of there way to meet our needs was brilliant. The effort they put in to make it a memorable weekend was outstanding. It was really their joint effort that made the weekend such a huge success.

A perfect hotel with perfect hosts for a perfect weekend.

From the initial greeting to departing the owners could not have been more attentative and helpful. The room was pleasant and spacious and the "view from the loo" over the Clyde has to be seen. The menus were varied and full of local produce, all cooked to a high standard. The wine list was good and the small but well stocked bar satisfied our needs. The scenery around Dunoon is magnificent and the hotel had lots of helpful pamphlets on local attractions.
The room was spotless and the chocolates on the pillow were much appreciated by my wife!!
All in all a very nice place to spend a carefree few days. We will definitely visit again.

Stayed: November 2007

We (5 of us) spent Christmas at the Abbot;s Brae and we had a wonderful time so much so we intend to go back this year. The food was lovely and plentiful. The other guests who stayed over Christmas were very friendly which made it all seem like a house party among old friends. The location is breathtaking. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Thank you Colin and Christine for the warm welcome and we will see you (hopefully) at Christmas.
