Stayed here for one night and was warmly welcomed and checked in with minimum fuss. The room was light, very spacious and simply furnished with classic furniture. An electric convector heater was provided and already switched on which was rather nice. The bed was really comfortable and made for a great sleep, whilst the view out over the Holy Loch/Firth of Clyde was spectacular. However, the room was also in desperate need of refurbishment - secondary glazing over rotten window frames; worn furniture; chipped and discoloured paintwork. Very quickly, it becomes clear that actually the whole hotel is in need of major refurbishment; but that will truly amount to millions of pounds, rather than thousands. It is therefore really commendable that the owners can still keep the rooms very clean and make the stay comfortable.
I had my evening meal in Ghillies Bar, where the food was fresh, served piping hot, with tasty, generous portions and good value for money. Whilst the service was really friendly and efficient.
Breakfast was served in a wonderfully sunny room, overlooking the loch, and was generous, fresh and well cooked.
You may have gathered that I had a comfortable night's stay and liked the Royal Marine and the friendly staff who delivered really good service. However, don't expect it to be modern and pristine. It's just not that kind of place.
