Hello there! Many thanks for reviewing our hotel. We are always thrilled to read that our guests have enjoyed their stay as much as we want them too. Delighted to see that you enjoyed eating in both our restaurants. I have taken on board your note about the sausages and we hope to have this sorted very soon. We hope to see you back at the Argyll Hotel in the near future, but in the meantime many thanks for taking the time to write such kind comments. Kind regards, Scarlett.

I stayed at this 'landmark' hotel and left after one sleepless night. The racket caused by unruly teenagers outside the hotel led to a sleepless night - well nearly sleepless, it was after 3am before i got to sleep and i had to leave at 9am.

The room, although i was informed had been refurbished, was of a very basic standard with a rather uncomfortable bed and a smell of dampness.

I did not have breakfast although maybe gladly so after my experience in their 'rio restaurant' the evening before (seperate review).

I complained to reception before I left but was met with what seemed like a well rehearsed 'we cant do anything about the noise' response. The room complaint was ignored.

There are clearly better places to stay and I for one will not try to save a 'couple of pounds' to end up with a far inferior stay to what others can offer, most imprtantly the lack of sleep.

Am originally from the area (Toward) but was at a wedding in the town and wanted to be handy for getting home at the end of the evening. Apart from the fact I had no bath, the room was spacious and comfortable, the views of the sea were beautiful. Not sure if the hotel has rooms with baths but will look into this for my next visit, I stayed alone in a large double room, would like to enquire about family rooms for my next visit with my husband and young child. Staff were very nice and welcoming, food good.

Room Tip: Room 105 sea view and quite spacious, bright and airy

Hello there! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I am really happy to see that you choose to stay with us and had such a great stay when you were back in Dunoon. We only have a few rooms with baths, however we will be more than glad to put down any requests for one the next time you stay. We also have a few family rooms, one in particular does have a bath if that was of interest to you. In the meantime, thank you once again for your kind comments. Kind regards, Scarlett.

This hotel is excellent for a short break to Dunoon, really enjoyed the hotel and food, we had an upgraded room which was fantastic with a 4 poster bed and the best view in the place. Food at hotel was also good.

We enjoyed our stay at The Argyll and it was made better by the attentive nature of the staff. I must however agree with previous posters about the late night racket outside the hotel however luckily we were out ourselves so we didnt suffer too much. A little tweaking on breakfast would improve things but a good hotel as is.

We will be back and hopefully a solution to the late night noise can be found by then.

Hi there! Many thanks for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. Our guests comments are always encouraged. I am delighted that you found our staff to be attentive. We obviously understand about the local street noise, unfortunately it is out of our hands but we are working alongside the local police and council to try and come to a solution. We hope to see you back the next time you are in the area. Many thanks once again. Kind regards, Scarlett.

Just spent a night on a quick working trip to Scotland, it was a real pleasant stay, cannot comment on value (but tripadvisor makes you do so) , as client paid for it, but I would have thought it was 4 star not 3 star. The rooms service etc were all 4 star. Thank you.

Room Tip: was in room 126 it was great

Have now stayed at the Argyll 4 times, on each occasion the rooms have been clean and well presented. The staff couldn't be friendlier, nothing is to much bother for them. Food in the hotel has always been really nice. Already looking forward to our next visit.
