We had a lovely stay with David and Kate in their comfortable guest house, an easy 10 minute walk from Rothesay town centre. We had one of the large, sea-facing rooms and had fantastic views of gannets fishing in the bay. The good choice of breakfasts included delicious smoked salmon and scrambled egg (and you don't have to choose the... More

Just returned from 2 days on Bute staying at the Ardyne. Fantastic guest house with stunning view across the bay. Immaculate spacious room and great cooked breakfast. Would recommend and definitely return if we visit Bute again. Couldn't believe how peaceful and quiet it was for the middle of the summer holidays. Perfect for that tranquil getaway.

We only stayed one night here on a cycling tour of Arran and Bute. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and set us up for the day. The hosts were helpful and friendly. As Bed and Breakfasts go this was exactly what had been promised.
