my wife and I stayed here for the late may weekend and enjoyed dunoon very much, however our stay at the esplanade had something lacking.
the room we were given on arriving was a twin when I had booked a double through easy breaks, my paperwork stated a double but at reception I was told they had booked a twin, the matter was resolved and we were given a double with an excellent sea view.
the guy at reception also asked if we had stayed before, when I said yes , a few times, he said he thought he recognised me, but im afraid I had never seen him before, and there was a massive change of staff since our last visit.
the meals were excellent as usual, the entertainment, well, we had seen the singer on a previous occasion and decided not to stay that evening.
I have to say this, as I said there was something lacking, I did get the impression the staff were under stress and certainly not as friendly as before, and a few of us were taken by surprise on the sunday evening of our stay when, at ten past ten one of the staff came up to the lounge and declared last orders at the bar , a rather early night then.
over all, we enjoyed our stay, not half as much as on other occasions and im not so sure of a return, perhaps we got spoiled on earlier visits.
