Glenmorag Hotel
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Dunoon
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We travelled to the Glenmorag Hotel with David Urquhart. We have a wonderful weekend. The hotels position overlooks the sea. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The food was good, staff were friendly and helpful. We were entertained every night and will definately come back in the future. People have complained about the need for refurbishment, but this did not detract from the hotel's appeal, it was full of character.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are only £5 extra for the weekend. We were a group of 3 so we had a side room.

This hotel is definitely past its best. It needs upgrading, decorating and updating. Everything is very worn, dirty and past its best. It is in a lovely position overlooking the Firth of Clyde but is in a terrible state of repair. The food is terrible, the only plus point is that the staff do their best under difficult circumstances. We stayed for 4 nights and had trouble getting any hot water from the shower, and some of our party didn't get any hot water at all! Dunoon itself is very, very run down and not worth a visit.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. But rooms overlooking the Clyde at least have a lovely view.

We were on a 5 day coach tour with David Urquhart and it was excellent value for money. The staff were fantastic. Only about half a dozen who were the waiters, bar staff, reception and probably a lot more besides. Nothing was too much trouble. It took a day or so to realize that Peter and Atilla were actually twins and not one person who was everywhere at once.

The rooms were a good size and clean. My bed and pillows were very comfortable. Plenty of hot water. The food was very good, particularly breakfast. The hotel is very big and would have been a splendid building in its heyday. I hope that Hart Hotels (Urquhart) can invest in this hotel. So much needs to be upgraded.

One point of concern was that coaches park at the side of the hotel and were parked over the fire escape area for the dining room. We would have struggled to get out along the side of the coaches.

We had 4 drinks vouchers each and the drinks were a good price. The entertainment was good and all styles of dancing were covered so that everyone could get up on the dance floor. The Scottish dancer was lovely

Overall it was a good holiday.

Room Tip: Pay the small supplement for a room with a view, which is wonderful, especially at night with all th...

Did a 5 day coach trip with David Urquart. The hotel is very tired looking and squeaky floorboards a pain especially if you had a room on the first floor!! I had seen reviews of the hotel before we arrived so knew what to expect. On the plus side the food was very good and the staff brilliant!! Entertainment was good as were the drink prices. I would recommend paying a bit extra for sea view. We went into Dunoon which is small and a bit run down. Excellent coffee shop though.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a sea view

This hotel is owned by the coach tour company David Urquhart and is ok for overnight accommodation. It has not been refurbished since before the War (probably WW1) but the staff are friendly and the food is filling. We had no reason to complain. And it made for a cheep holiday.

This hotel is set high up on a hill overlooking the Firth and Dunoon. Our room was at the front with a beautiful view but was badly in need of redecoration with wallpaper peeling off, stained carpet and old furniture. The beds and bathroom were clean but quite a bit of dust gathered on furniture. Only 1 small lift for this large hotel and no telephone in the room. A budget hotel, you get what you pay for...
The chef/cook needs to learn how to cook potatoes which is strange considering they could cook the meat no problem?
On the plus side the shower over bath has good pressure and plenty hot water. The staff are all very nice.

Room Tip: if your booking a room here ask for a sea view.
