“Royal National Mod 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

I stayed at the Argyll with a large group for 4 nights in mid-October. I think I can speak on everyone in the group's behalf and say that we found our accommodation to be perfect for our requirements. My own room was certainly of a very high standard. We had a problem with the bathroom light which was rectified instantly. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful despite how busy the hotel was because of the Mod. I would definitely stay here again if I was to be in the area.

Was at the Haunted Hotel weekend 26-26 October with 7 friends. What a great weekend. This was our third and best weekend at the Argyll.The rooms are clean and comfy and the food is good. The entertainment was great. What a laugh we had. We were sad to hear that Mary, one of the staff had broken her hip and was recovering at home. She is an institution at the Argyll and has been there for many years. Hope to see her next time. We will be booking soon for next year.

Dev, I see that you are on here a lot. We were dressed up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves so you should remember us. You and your staff have made the hotel even better than before. See you for Bite Night next year

This was our second weekend visit and another complete success.So noticeable the refurbishment the hotel is undergoing. Lost it's "Tired" look. While we were there a Murder Mystery themed week-end was going on, looking like great fun. Perhaps we will try that next time? Suspect the thought of just chilling out, comfortable room, good food and hospitality from Dev,John and staff, coupled with stunning views of the Clyde will be enough!

Stayed in the Argyll Hotel for 4 nights mid-October when the Royal National Mod was taking place in Dunoon. We were there as part of a group booking and loved the central location. The staff in the hotel were fantastic and couldn't have done more for us. Dev and John were very helpful and attentive, which was very much appreciated.

Rooms were lovely with really comfortable beds. There was some external noise, but, the Mod was on in town, so it was to be expected! The bar and restaurant area is lovely, the food was good (we were on a fixed menu in the evenings) and the selection at breakfast time was great. The waiting staff were great at interacting with everyone, including the children that were there.

A 3-star hotel which certainly offered 5-star care and attention from staff. The building is traditional with character, our room had a fabulous view over the Clyde estuary....lovely to wake up to. Well worth upgrading to a sea-view room. Lounge/bar area on ground floor also has a splendid view over the water. Had evening bar-snack meal in the Lounge Bar, good, well-presented and excellent value. Dining room very busy for breakfast due to national music festival, but staff coped well and food was fine.
Trying to be nit-picking to find faults was difficult - lift is from many centuries ago, but works ok. - no car park, but free parking very close by.
Overall terrific value. Could not be closer to town centre, with lots of quaint old-style shops nearby.
If going by car, BE CERTAIN to ask hotel where to get ferry tickets half-price.

Room Tip: Sea View (it's really a wide estuary, not the sea)

The food at this hotel is excellent value, 3 course lunch for £8.95. The staff were very polite and helpful, would definitely go back if I was in the area, my only regret is we found it on the last day of our holiday.

Yet another terrific weekend with fabulous food and attentive hotel staff. The weekend was based on a murder mystery based on Fawlty Towers - performed by the cast of The Walking Theatre Company, a hilarious weekend which I would highly recommend, since our last visit there has been a change of management which is only too apparent, you are made to feel very special and everyone ensures that your every need is met. Well done Dev and staff and we will be returning soon.
