“Fantastic stay & Excellent breading making course!”
Reviewed 30 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

My girlfriend and I arranged for a weekend away at the end of January, to help try and escape some of the post Christmas/winter blues. I can't take any credit for the choice of bed and breakfast or the bread making course, as this was all down to the her. But I am more than happy to rave about both. Firstly being an ever reluctant visitor to B&B's, I was absolutely blown away with the standards of Munro's, it honestly felt more like a small boutique hotel than a B&B. The quality of our room (No.3) with its great four-poster bed and breathtaking views over the bay, where only surpassed by the warm & welcoming downstairs guest lounge, with its wood burning fire, large comfortable couches and book collection that will keep you happily entertained for hours made for a perfect winter escape.

The bread making course was equally enjoyable, being delivered in a relaxed and open fashion, giving everyone the chance to talk, laugh and pick up a few hints and tips along the way, made for a truly great day.

Joan and Andy who run the B&B and bread making course, could not have been more entertaining or better host. I cannot complement both of them enough for their fantastic service, they made visiting their B&B's feel more like visiting a friend’s house.

I already have and will continue to recommend Joan & Andy's B&B's along with the bread making course to my friends and family, and would say if you are looking for an escape with something different thrown in, then Munro's B&B along with the bread making course would be well worth checking out.

Thanks for the simply stunning review. This is exactly why we do things the way we do - to create a relaxed "friend's house" atmosphere. The sort of place we'd like to stay at ourselves.

“A great stay with a brilliant bread making course”
Reviewed 27 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a voucher deal including the bread making course. Joan and Andy were very friendly and could not have been better hosts. When we arrived we were offered tea and biscuits and they lit the fire in the lovely living room for us. They recommended a number of places in town to eat and even arranged a taxi for us.

It is the little things that make this place just that bit better than the rest. Such as leaving out wine glasses so we could enjoy a glass by the fire after a lovely dinner, allowing us to use their WiFi and just being pleasant and sharing their knowledge of the island.

Breakfast was lovely, with homemade bread and good quality ingredients. The room we stayed in (room 6) was spacious and had a lovely wet room. The beds were comfortable and the room well decorated. The building is old but has great character.

The bread making course was informative but conducted in a relaxed way. We enjoyed a lovely lunch as part of the deal and were made to feel very welcome.

I would highly recommend this B&B for a weekend in Bute. Note this is not actually in Rothesay but if you have a car this isn't an issue and a taxi into town is only £4-5.

Just returned from a two night stay at Munro's. Cannot fault anything with this lovely B&B, the bread making course was excellent and we are certainly enjoying our efforts!
The room was beautiful, the breakfast was amazing, Joan and Andy were attentive and friendly and overall a warm and welcoming stay was to be had.
Definitely recommend Munro's and we will be back again. Thanks again.

“Love the home made bread”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Great spot with good view and excellent breakfast - loved the home made bread.

Cost slightly more than places I usually stay, but worth it - although minor niggle with bathroom plumbing is not what I would have expected.

Would stay here again.

Combine a commanding view of Rothesay Bay with consistently excellent service, welcoming and knowledgeable hosts, great food, and a posse of friendly black labradors and you have all of necessary ingredients for a great B&B to visit, and to return to.
