....even though it is 28 miles to the west! Road and rail links from Gourock are excellent so you get the best of both worlds - a really laid back, charming town within easy reach of the big city.
We stayed at the Spinnaker whilst attending a couple of days at the Commonwealth Games. I was impressed that unlike every other hotel I looked at, the Spinnaker appeared not to have raised their prices for this period.
Our room was very comfortable and had a great view over the Clyde estuary - it was lovely looking out of the window and finding the picture changing at different times of the day or as the weather changed. The main road does run immediately in front of the hotel so if you are bothered by traffic noise (not terrible but definitely audible) then might be better to forego the sea view.
Breakfast was good, the staff were friendly and helpful and Stewart was a most pleasant host. We had dinner one evening and this was also very good.
There was free wi-fi but a very 'iffy' connection!
As noted, Gourock itself is very pleasant. Do beware though, when eating out in the town it would seem that all kitchens close at 8 during the week. One night we wound up at 9pm eating some dry, tepid fish and chips on a bench overlooking the Clyde - though this was perhaps more fun than it sounds!
I would definitely recommend the hotel as relaxed, no frills, good value accommodation in a lovely location.
