This wonderful Georgian style house has panoramic views of the Island as well as the Kyles of Bute. The bedrooms were lovely, clean and comfortable (the beds were really comfortable) and the en suites a decent size and the owners Tom and Tina couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming.. It was lovely to wake up every morning to a...

I went to Ivybank with two friends this weekend. We had a great stay at Ivybank. Tina and Tom were friendly, hospitable and helpful. Their love of the Island comes through in their recommendations for things to do. Their period Victorian house is very clean and well maintained, with nice gardens and a fantastic view over Rothsay. It's a two...

It took 4.2 hours to get there from Manchester, but getting off the ferry we was minutes from the most idyllic B&B. I have to say its been one of our perfect getaways, and we'll be back without question. You won't be disappointed, trust me. It was a beautiful island and plenty of things to see, especially being able to...

The Ivybank VillA was recommended by a friend of ours who lived in Rothesay. Right in the heart of Rothsey town but elevated enough to provide a great view of the harbour and surrounding hills etc, We had a short but very pleasant stay over the May bank holiday.. . The Ivybank is a very pleasant comfortable and clean guest...

On first arriving we were warmly welcomed by Tom and Tina (not forgetting "Pip" the dog). We were shown to our rooms one a spacious suite the other a cosy room but both with stunning views over Rothesay harbour. The position was ideal slightly away from the centre but a two minute walk down the steps into the town -...

With Tom greeting you and helping you with your bags, to the excellent views of the harbour and Tina's superb Scottish breakfast, you couldn't ask for a more lovely stay. If you love dogs, you may find yourself wanting to pack away Pip the dog! This is really like staying in home away from home and comes thoroughly recommended!

From the warm welcome we received from Tina on our arrival until our farewell from Tom, we could not have wished for a better place to stay on our short break to Rothesay. Not only was the Ivybank a fabulous, clean and spacious place to stay but Tina made you feel like part of the family. The views from the...

My son and I normally stay at The Boat House when we visit Bute (I have family on the island). However, for this trip, The Boat House was full and the owners recommended Ivybank. I called Ivybank and Tina answered and told me she was expecting my call. My first impressions from the call were that I had nothing to...

We arrived unannounced 6 hours before our pre-arranged arrival time to deposit our luggage before setting off on our "arctic trek" on the West Island Way. Tom could not have been more charming and helpful - it was no problem. After a very challenging day walking in gale force winds and driving snow, our dripping outer garments were dried out...
