Just home from another great stay at the Boathouse, the accommodation is of a high standard and the views from our suite were stunning. Sara could not have been more welcoming and thoughtful and this made our stay so memorable. We will definitely be back

We loved our stay at the Boat House! Check in was great - we were met and shown to our room; which came with a living room and small kitchen, equipped with a fridge, toaster and microwave. We had two loafs of yummy bread (brown and white), jam, cereal, yogurt, milk (full fat and semi skimmed) and butter. Great to...

Spent a couple of days here and it was impossible to fault. Very warm welcome and the accommodation is of a very high standard. Fridge stocked with essentials and there was a range of breakfast options in the cupboard. Great view from the window overlooking the clyde. Thoroughly recommended.

Just spent 2 nights at The Boathouse and must say that it is fantastic. I have stayed in 4* hotels where the room wasn't as nice as this. We had Suite One, which is adapted for the disabled as my partner uses a wheelchair. There is loads of space and the bathroom has professional adaptions like handholds and a wet...

Beautifully furnished and very welcoming owners. Great to watch the ferry from the lounge window and a short walk to the town. Visited the island to complete genealogy research and volunteers in Bute Museum very helpful. Too early in year to see inside of Mount Stuart but grounds worth a visit. And seeing sheep close up a real bonus!

We got married in Glasgow and got the ferry to Rothesay the same day (due to nostalgic reasons). I've been to other B&B's in rothesay so I had plenty of questions for Sara who was very accomodating to my queries. She picked out a lovely suite for us with a FANTASTIC sea view, very romantic! We felt very welcomed and...

By far one of the if not the most superior types of accommodation on the island. These stylish suites are great for when I work away. I come and go as I please and don't feel like I am in a hotel at all.

My best friend and I stayed at The Boat House mid January 2017 for 2 nights in suite 2. A perfect welcome upon arrival and the suite was beyond what we expected. Lovely decorations/finishes, great front room/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Having stayed at many hotels on Bute previously this is the only place I will now be staying at -...
