“Cracking Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Just returned from a murder mystery weekend here and have to say its been one of the best times ever. Hotel was spotless. Staff were so helpful. Food was really good and plentiful. Bar prices were very reasonable with wine being £10.95 a bottle - a bargain for a hotel. The hotel is situated across the road from the passenger ferry so no taxi's required what more could anyone want. I will definetly be going back soon. Well done Dev Surya and all of your team.

Room Tip: Really nice large room in basement with large bathroom and flat screen telly but its under dance flo...

Just returned from a fab family weekend on faulty towers murder mystery from brilliant walking theatre co. Hotel lovely, food excellent, staff so friendly -couldn't do enough for you. Argyll's Secret coast has some of the most spectacular views I have seen. These Geordies will definitely be back next year and in greater numbers.

We stayed at the hotel two weekends ago, it was a Freddie Mercury tribute night on the Saturday, we had a superb time. From the moment that we arrived on the Friday until we left on the Sunday the staff could not do enough for us. A special mention to Dev Surya General Manager, thank you so much for the special attention you gave to my Mum. My mum has been very ill this year and you were so nice to her, even coming around from the other side of reception to give her a hug as we left for home on the Sunday, she was so touched by your kindness. The meals at the hotel were very good and plentiful and we all cleared our plates at every meal, there was always something to suit. The table service was very efficient and all meals were delivered with a smile! All the staff were very pleasant and a credit to the Hotel. We did not have our lunch in the Hotel, however any other guests that we spoke to all said that their meals were both very reasonable and well priced. For a Hotel the drinks at the bar were not too expensive with a bottle of wine priced very reasonably. Overall a super weekend, thank you to all and hope to see you all again soon, Alan Ferguson, Blantyre.

This was our forth stay at this hotel and every year it has been excellent. Staff are always friendly and very helpful. During this stay I reported on the Saturday morning that the light above the mirror in the bathroom was not working about three hours later it was fixed, you don't get this kind of service even in the big hotels. Can really recommend the weekend deals like the Murder Mystery and Tribute Weekends always outstanding value this year £119 for two nights DBB. Drinks are reasonably priced compared to the usual hotel prices. The General Manager, Dev Surya, seemed to be around all the time and ensured everything was OK. Will return and maybe try the Paranormal Weekend that's if we can pluck up enough courage.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are quieter.

This was our 4th visit to this hotel. We have been coming each year to the Murder Mystery Weekends with some friends. This year we thought we would try one of the Tribute Weekends, the Freddy Mercury one. We were well looked after and were impressed the high standard of service and friendliness from the bar and waiting staff. The General Manager Mr Surya could not have been more helpful. The food was great and had been given a lovely room with a 4 poster bed. We shall certainly return.

Room Tip: Go for a room overlooking the river as the rooms on the main street side can get very noisey at nigh...
