Esplanade Hotel
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Dunoon
Reviewed 18 August 2014

our room was bright and airy, beautiful decor and big windows, which really opens the room up. We had great sea view in the room. Lovely front gardens and the beach is right in front of the hotel. It's in a very covenient location, only 5 minutes walk from Dunoon Ferry Terminal and the town centre. A great relaxing weekend break. Child friendly as well.

Having travelled round the world, we have a fair idea of standards.
We had a sea view room looking out over the whole sea, the room was clean, bed comfortable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and when I asked for extra pillows, iron etc...they came very quickly. I really could not critiscise any of the staff- Alina in the dining room was particularly helpful. We'd definitely stay there again, and I believe it's cheaper to book directly through the hotel because they include evening meal.

This was our 3rd stay and yet again, we had an excellent time. First class rooms, great food, excellent staff all round, including Sonia and Minaj. The Hotel is situated on the sea front promenade with great views across the water. The front gardens are beautiful and well kept and in the warm weather there is tables and chairs set out on the grass. Planning return visits.

Room Tip: Front rooms have beautiful views over the water.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last weekend. This is our second visit having stayed there last month. The staff are fantastic and very friendly and you are well looked after. We booked a superior room with sea view and were delighted with the amount of space we had and the fab view. They have a wonderful chef whose food we have found to be delicious with a varied menu. There is also entertainment which is great so you don't have to set foot outside the hotel. We will definitely be returning as we had a fun filled but also chilled out weekend away from it all. See you guys all again very soon I hope and thanks again for another enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: superior rooms much larger and excellent view across the bay

Stayed here in May with a work colleague on arrival we were given our keys made my way to my room which was by the front door did not have high hopes for the room really but to my surprise on opening the door there was 3 single beds a flat screen tv and a nice bath/ shower. Went have a look at my colleagues room where he was down a flight of stairs and it was quite different a double bed drab room small bath area small tv no view out the window. There did seem to be quite a lot of elderly people in the hotel. We did not have tea here and when we asked about eating out the guy we spoke to seemed quite pushy for us to book into there sister hotel as he stated there was no where to eat..... Not the case 5 mins walk lovely little Indian. Breakfast was ok we found one of the staff to be quite rude as everything seemed to much trouble for him maybe this was because they had to get up earlier to do breakfast as a large coach load was setting of early. The BO this guy was omitting was quite overpowering (you have just started work have a spray or a bath)The views at the back of the hotel are very scenic. Overall nice hotel looks very dated from the outside but depends what room you get some staff are letting this hotel down big time.

We were welcomed by friendly reception staff . Our double room was a good standard with a newly refurbished shower room . The bar had an excellent choice of whisky and reasonably priced . We didn't eat at the hotel but there was a five course meal available at £19.95 , the hotel was busy with a bus party so we ate in the town centre which is only a 10 minute walk along the scenic esplanade . Breakfast was good with a decent selection available . There is a lovely area at the front of the hotel for sitting out , there are ample parking spaces in the car park . Overall Great value for money.

We stayed at the Esplanade because family members had stayed there and said it was very good. The room which had recently been re-decorated and re-furnished was clean and the outlook very nice.Whilst staff were friendly, the constant arrival of coach parties resulted in a dinner and breakfast service which was more like school dinners in a room with peeling wall paper and old carpets. You had to arrive for dinner at 7.00 pm and the whole pre-measured meal was served in an astonishing 45 minutes whilst breakfast consisted of again pre-measured out cereal, hard eggs and bacon that looked raw. Entertainment was provided but again this was geared to the coach parties staying. Bar prices were very reasonable. It's a good hotel if you are just passing through.
