Hotel exactly what we expected and wanted. Room was nicely decorated; clean and tidy; with a comfortable bed and all the facilities you expect. The chair as mentioned in a previous review had seen better days but definitely not making down an island hotel for that. The TV was adequate for the room but didn’t come to Bute to watch TV. Breakfast was very well organised and more than sufficient to set you up for a day exploring the lovely island. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Comfy bed although small, breakfast was ok. Got the last ferry over. owner wasn't very amused that we arrived at 20:30! The view was of the back of shops Chair looks like it had a fight with a cat and lost, tv was tiny, toilet paper cheapest of the cheap, picked that one because it had en suite but never again! defo not worth the money No one there to complain to at check out! only one cup in the room and considering the row I got for arriving when I did , didn't want to ask for another!
The hotel itself is old fashioned but nice enough and well located but the owner who comes across like a combination of Roy Cropper and Mr Bean makes your stay very uncomfortable, he appears to resent having guests which is a bizarre trait for a hotelier. When we tried to order more than three drinks at the bar he got flustered and was rude and ran away, His daughter appeared and informed us that " My dad won't be running after you all night" In the morning he attempted to collect £116 pounds from our party for an alleged "noise complaint" Maybe he needs to have a think about what kind of business he wants to be in.
Victoria Hotel Rothesay would never stay here again if you are under the age of 70 the owner is extremely rude sitting in our room from 8.30 on a bank holiday Friday night as bar closed unless friends of owner
Booked in through work As I work nightshift I require a hotel room to sleep during the day. Have used sato reme hotel many times previously wi hout problem Arrived at hotel approx 7.30am Christmas day looking forward to a nice breakfast no one around so off to bed hungry . Up to room absolutely freezing cold put radiator on no difference so into bed and tried to sleep Came down stairs at approximately 4 30 Spoke to waitress about something to eat Was told sorry you have to book explained that I was a resident she then went to speak to someone and returned with owners wife who informed me the kitchen was not able to make anything as they had turned off the fryers Was eventually offered dinner for 25 pounds if they could find a table which I refused as I was looking for something Smaller I returned to my room to get ready for work .when returning key to check out owners wife offered to speak to kitchen staff to see if they would make me something this was no use as I was now due at work. So if anyone would like to stay in a hotel with no food poor heating and poor staff the victoria hotel would certainly suit your needs And the bill for this wonderful experience 150.00 pounds …
