Douglas Park guest house is a wonderful destination. Ken (our host) is extremely knowledgeable about Dunoon and the surrounding area. The house is immaculately presented, spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are superb.

Tips:

Watch out for porpoises in the waters in front of the guest house and for golden eagles above the mountains. Take the short trip to the Blairmore cafe bistro for great coffee and cake.

Situated on Marine Parade of the Firth of Clyde, the view out of the windows couldn't be better. Off street parking is a welcomed plus. The house looks beautiful, the rooms are comfortable, breakfast options are generous, room rates are surprisingly attractive for what you get. Ken is a perfect host, keeps discreet back (as does Tilly, the lovely little dog), but helps, wherever it needs.

A superb stay at Douglas Park. Ken is a very welcoming and attentive host. We had a spectacular Room With A View (Room 4) which was well furnished and absolutely spotless. Breakfast was outstanding. We will certainly be back.

Tips:

In Dunoon the Lorne Bar was great for an evening meal - an extensive menu of good dishes. Argyll Vintners on Hillfoot Street is also well worth a visit for a glass of wine and purchase of very reasonably priced wines. Again, we will be back to both.

Beautiful home, luxuriously furnished and great made to order breakfasts.

The house is very relaxed and welcoming. The first thing you see on entering is a cosy looking lounge with fantastic views over the Clyde Estuary. There may be a little dog called Tilly sitting at the window watching out for the latest arrivals (the owner, Ken, keeps her out of the way if any non dog friendly guests arrive). I stayed twice at Douglas Park during a 2 week period. Both my rooms were very comfortable. Both looked over the back yard so no view, but were very quiet, which was ideal for a light sleeper like me. A kettle with drinks sachets and some snacks were provided, and lovely floral teacups with a Tunnocks teacake on top. Everywhere were little touchs like that to make the guests feel at home. Needless to say, the rooms were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was in a big, light, spacious room with splendid views of the water. Fantastic fresh food was served up by Ken, (shout out for the haggis 😊), the host, who is a friendly, lively, fun person, full of stories and information about the area. The breakfast room turned out to be quite a social venue, and I ended up getting to know the other guests there. Douglas Park is a great base for a trip to the Cowal Peninsula. I will be recommending it to friends and family. Thank you Ken, and Tilly!

Tips:

Benmore Botanic Gardens - superb day out Tighnabruaich - a pretty town about 40 mins drive away through stunning scenery (also Colintraive and Portavadie in the same area, both worth a visit) Blairmore cafe at the other side of the Holy Loch - wonderful cafe in a lovely location facing Loch Long.

I would definitely recommend Douglas Park Guest House for its warm welcome, friendliness, cleanliness and comfort. The delicious breakfast is well worth getting out of bed for, plenty of choice and very tasty, ensuring a good start to the day. Facing the river and surrounded by beautiful scenery it's the perfect place to relax, while also being an ideal base for exploring the area.

Tips:

The Lorne is a bar and restaurant in Dunoon about a mile from the guest house. It has an extensive menu and friendly, helpful staff making it a great place to pop in for a drink or relax with friends and family over a meal. Benmore Botanic Garden is well worth a visit with paths to explore, you can walk among Giant Redwoods, mosses and huge ferns and look out for red squirrels and other wildlife. There's so much to see

Once again a wonderful time spent at Douglas Park to experience the Cowal Gathering. Ken is an excellent host, nothing is too much and he genuinely cares about his guests. The guest house is spotless with comfortable beds, fabuous breakfast and Tunnocks Tea Cakes in the room every day...what's not to like.

Tips:

For an evening meal the Lorne takes some beating and the Blairmore Cafe is well worth a visit. Just make sure you visit Puck's Glen while in Dunoon, one of Mother Natures free sites and is glorious especially in the rain.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Douglas Park very much. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with an amazing seaview. The quality and choice of breakfast was something to look forward to each morning.

Tips:

We would definitely recommend going for a lovely drive towards Blairmore and stopping at the charming cafè and next-door shop for gifts and foodie treats. We also found the Ardentinny in the next village to be excellent. Run by a young, cheerful and qualified staff both in the kitchen and serving . Both really worth going to!

A very pleasant stay. The room was very good and the breakfast excellent. The Young man always ensured that we had everything we needed at breakfast. The situation is good and the view across the water is pleasant indeed. Certainly I would recommend and return, if I am in that area.

Tips:

The Botanic Gardens are well worth seeing and the Restaurants whilst limited are adequate.

We loved our mini break at Douglas Park guest house. Ken, the host, is kind, friendly and helpful. He runs an impeccable guest house and has great knowledge of the local area. His dog Tilly is the cutest wee thing and so well behaved! The breakfast, which was served by Lewis, was incredible: fresh fruit salad; homemade marmalade, and not to mention the perfect cooked breakfast. We will be back!

Tips:

Toward, a 15 min drive, was amazing if you like to get in the water and go pier jumping. There’s plenty places to eat in Dunoon but booking is best. We are at The Lorne, which was great. The chippy close to the pier would be a recommendation too.

My travel partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Douglas Park Guest House. The rooms and shared spaces were all tastefully decorated and well maintained/cleaned. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful and Kenny the host was fantastic. He gave us several recommendations and even helped us book a last minute trip out on the water with Wreckspeditions (also highly recommend). We were sad to leave and I hope to visit again some day.

Tips:

There were plenty of restaurants but be sure to book ahead! We really enjoyed the Argyle Hotel restaurant and balcony porch. For activities we went out on a short boat ride with Wreckspeditions (Jason was awesome) and booked a couple of Quads with Quadmania which I highly recommend!

Two splendid days: From our greeting on the doorstep to our delightfully served breakfast, Ken’s ministrations have enabled us to relax and unwind after what had been a somewhat stressful journey to Dunoon. There is ample off-road parking - always a bonus. Our room with exclusive bathroom measures up to the highest standards. There is a bountiful welcome tray for tea/coffee making provided, along with tasty biscuits and bottled water that I find has been replenished whilst out for the day. We have bath robes hanging in the wardrobe, ready to don whilst walking the two strides to the bathroom. Everything is tip-top, every detail is covered. The lounge is comfortable and roomy. We feel very much at home here and can recommend Douglas Park to any prospective travellers without reservation. Oh, terrific views over the water to Gourock and promenade walks across the road are an added benefit.

Tips:

Don’t look elsewhere - Book in at Douglas Park.

Excellent accommodation with friendly and obliging host. Owner went out of his way to be helpful to me as I don't drive. Breakfast was delicious and just as I ordered.

Tips:

I found the cafes in Dunoon to be very good with tasty food and cheerful staff. As I was there for a Convention I didn't have much chance to explore the area, but feel that a car is essential to make the most of one's stay. I'm sure the bus service is fine but I found the timetable hard to decipher. There should be a covered waiting area for those foot travellers waiting for the ferry. I intend to return in the summer to visit the Benmore Botanical Gardens as I know there's a dedicated bus service going there.

Beautiful guest house overlooking water. Prime location. We were welcomed by Ken who couldn't do enough to ensure our needs were met. Our room was spotless, large, very spacious with a large bay window. There was nothing lacking. Ken had even supplied binoculars to engage in the spectacular view. Breakfast was amazing. Excellent choice of hot and continental. Id never stayed in a guest house before, and had concerns that I'd be aware I was in someone's house, however soon forgot about that when in room. Rooms decorated to a very high standard, spotless. We opted for deluxe, and that's what we received. Beautiful wee tillie the family dog made us feel right at home too. Will definitely return, and would highly recommend.

What an excellent B&B; I always make a point of booking with a local business instead of a big chain hotel, yet again, it paid off. Ken and his beautiful little dog, Tilly, run a tight ship. Ken is kind and welcoming, and nothing is too big of an ask. My friend and I stayed in the twin garden room and had the most pleasant stay; the water pressure in the shower was fantastic! The view is ever-changing from the dining room and beautiful even on the most miserable rainy days. Ken is a Dunoon man born and bred, so he has a fantastic knowledge of the local area with a great map of where best to visit. Absolutely recommend, and could not fault it.

Tips:

The Lorne Bar and Kitchen do the most beautiful food, fresh ingredients and good vegetarian options and for a takeaway, the Three in One Takeaway do amazing pizzas.

Luxury 'home-from-home' accomodation. Just the sort of refuge you want to repair to after a 'hard day on the hill'. Dwight Eisenhour later US President is quoted as saying "Hindsight is more accurate than foresight, but less useful". Douglas Park fortunately employs foresight skillfully...

Tips:

Front rooms overlook Clyde estuary has a vista with an outlook changing by the minute. Binoculars provided in room, or bring your own personalized ones. Local map provided with guidance for meals/tours etc. Only a short walk from frequent Dunoon/Gourock ferry quay, means a motorvehical not needed by the enthusiastic walker/cyclist.

Everything about the Douglas Park Guest House is ideal. We greatly enjoyed our weekend. The rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean, and tastefully decorated and furnished. The unique selling point is the welcome and friendly care of his guests given by Ken. Fine breakfasts, and the delightful 'Tilly.' Thank you for everything. We will be back.

Tips:

A day trip to the Isle of Bute, taking the car ferry from Colintraive to Rhubadoch. We left Dunoon in rain and arrived on Bute, less than an hour later, in glorious warm sunshine. Can't promise it would always be like that, but the beauty of the drive round the Cowal peninsular and on Bute is worth seeing at any time.

Wish all guest houses were of this standard, wonderful accommodation, rooms are large and airy, bed very comfortable. The breakfasts are exceptional especially the porridge. Ken is a wonderful host who makes you feel like you are a friend from the start, full of knowledge about the local area. Just make sure Tilly gives you her approval!!

Tips:

There are some wonderful places to visit close to Dunnon, just ask Ken!

Kenny is a terrific host. Breakfast was plentiful and tasted wonderful. The rooms are all great, but if you can book the one that overlooks the Firth and lochs, you will appreciate the view. Also, trust Kenny when he tells you what the weather will be!

Tips:

A great restaurant in Dunoon is The Lorne. Food and staff were fantastic. Another restaurant is the Coylet Inn located on the beautiful Loch Eck. It is about 15 minutes north of the B&B on A815. The owner, Carl, is an avid hunter and fisherman. Much of the menu is provided by Carl's successes. I would also recommend a visit to the Benmore Botanic Gardens in between Dunoon and Coylet.

Friendly, helpful and makes all his guests feel special. Breakfast is delicious with plenty choice. Can't wait to go back again.

Tips:

In a fab location for exploring the Cowal peninsula. Nice places to visit are Benmore Gardens, pucks glen, blairmore and some great walks. Some nice restaurants in Dunoon. especially the Lorne. Dunoon is only a short scenic walk about 20 mins.

When planning our holiday in Dunoon we were very impressed by the excellent reviews that were given to Douglas Park GH. So glad we chose to stay there. No doubt that these reviews are genuine and the excellent rating is truly justified, Thanks to Ken we had a very comfortable and enjoyable holiday starting each day with a wonderful view of the Firth of Clyde and a delicious breakfast.

Tips:

Ken will give you lots of advice about Dunoon and its surroundings. Ben More Botanic Gardens are outstanding takes most of a day to visit. For sightseeing we enjoyed Tighnabruaich and Portavadie. Halibut served at the Marina at Portavadie was delicious - unbeatable indeed. The hill road from Otter Ferry to Glendaruel is very narrow and very steep in parts so think twice about your route if you are not a confident driver.

Going to Dunoon? Well don’t bother searching through all the booking sites etc., here’s a shortcut to the best B&B accommodation in Dunoon – just type in Douglas Park Guest House. Ken, the proprietor, has been in the hospitality sector for a long time and knows what he is doing in terms of providing the best experience for visitors to this immaculate Guest House. This is borne out by the world map in the entrance hall that is covered with coloured pins indicating satisfied visitors from all corners of the globe. At the first, second, and third time of visiting this B&B we have never been disappointed. One specific feature is a guest lounge which, unlike many B&B’s/Guest Houses, can be use at any time, so you are not turfed out after breakfast! And the view from the lounge is amazing. Here, the Clyde is no longer just a river flowing through Glasgow, it is a wide entrance to the open sea with boats of all sizes (ferries, tankers, cruise ships and submarines) passing through one of the most iconic waterways in the world. As indicated above, just search for Douglas Park Guest House when planning a visit to Dunoon, you will not be disappointed.

Best place for eating is The Lorne at 249 Argyll Street

Beautiful location, wonderful views and some great wildlife passing by! Excellent breakfasts enjoying the sea views, comfortable rooms and a very knowledgeable host - there were a couple of lovely spots we only found with Ken's recommendation and directions.

Tips:

The Lorne restaurant in Dunoon is very good. We enjoyed a day exploring Bute, via the Colintraive vehicle ferry, and a day closer to Dunoon walking round the town then visiting Benmore Gardens, Blairmore cafe and Puck's Glen - a lovely woodland walk with waterfalls, though be aware some of the route is steep and a bit slippery.

Last weekend, 4 ladies drove 202 miles for a quilting weekend at Douglas Park. A wonderful weekend had by all. Warm welcome , arriving to a tasty supper from Ken; 2 days of quilting in a superb sewing room; delicious food, all homemade with homebakes at morning and afternoon break. All we had to bring were our own sewing machines and projects. Lovely rooms. A treat to watch the sun rise over the Clyde. We were too early in the year to watch the Waverley Paddle Steamer sail by. Perhaps we'll see her or sail on her during our next retreat. The house was spotless with great attention to detail through out. Rooms all co-ordinated We shared a weekend of laughter, quilting with no cooking or washing dishes. We thank Ken for his hard work, hospitality and for facilitaing a quilting retreat. The 4 of us left better friends than ever. We would highly recommend a retreat weekend whether it's for quilting, crochet or knitting. Even if there is only 2 of you or you would like to go on your own to meet other like minded crafter - contact Ken, you won't regret it. Thank you so much Ken. My husband and I have also stayed at Douglas Park for B&B. Highly recommend it to you all.

Tips:

We had an afternoon walk to the aladin's cave of a sewing shop, not far from Douglas Park. An amazing selection of fabric and wools. The 2 Alisons, running the shop that day, shared a fountain of information, making us very welcome. Worth a visit, if you love fabrics, wools and crafts.

8th October 2021:

Perfect location with uninterrupted views across the Firth of Clyde and surrounding lochs from the lounge, dining room and front bedrooms. About one mile from the ferry to the north and a 20 minute flat walk along a beautiful, clean seafront into town. Douglas Park is spotlessly clean and comfortable and offers lots of little touches one would only expect to find in much more expensive accommodation - daily replenishment of toiletries, refreshments (including tea, coffee, biscuits, Tunnocks marshmallows, chocolates and a fresh bottle of tap water - and tempting sweets on the hall table). The host is very welcoming, extremely accommodating, keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. The breakfasts were super; plenty of choice and everything perfectly cooked - the best porridge I've had in any hotel. I would happily recommend Douglas Park and certainly would make it our choice of accommodation if we return to the area.

Tips:

Read the information booklet in the room as soon as you arrive in which you will discover how to use the powerful shower and that you can request extra pillows among other useful details. We ate at the Lorne Bar in town. It was recommended by our host and didn't disappoint with lots of choice of good food. Very busy, so book in advance. Would highly recommend. Also Duck Bay restaurant on the side of Loch Lomond was an unexpected find for lovely coffee and gorgeous pastries. Also serving breakfast, lunch and evening meals, which we didn't try having been served a full breakfast at Douglas Park, but the menu looked tempting and venue superb . We recommend a visit to Benmore Botanic Gardens, only about 5 miles away. Inverary is a lovely town to visit with its black and white buildings and beautiful scenery. Driving around the lochs and stopping to take in the awesome sights is a must, especially on the clear, sunny, autumn days that we were fortunate enough to enjoy.

Ken was the perfect host, made us feel at ease and welcome. Tunnocks teacakes in our room to go with our tea/coffee was a nice extra touch. The room was lovely, comfortable and well equipped with a terrific sea view. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of options. I would cxertainly recommend Douglas Park Guest House to anyone intending to visit this beautiful area.

Tips:

We came here primarily for the Cowal Open Studios event. If you are interested in art, it is well worth the effort to get here when this is on. There is a huge variety of different types of art on display, mostly in the artists' own studios and the standard is very high. Elsewhere, Benmore Gardens is excellent, and the coast road from the ferry terminal down past Toward point is good for cycling - flat and reasonably quiet.

Located on the sea front in lovely seaside setting of Kirn about a mile pleasant stroll along the promenade to Dunoon town centre. There is a bus stop right outside if the walk is too much for you. Handy for the Hunters Quay car ferry this smart and clean B&B offers great views across the Firth of Clyde and is highly recommended. Kenny the owner ensures everyone feels at home and the standards he maintains would put some 4 star hotels to shame. Nice touches like the binoculars in the room to observe the wonderful sealife the Clyde presents are an example of this. The Tunnick Tea Cakes another. The breakfast menu is delicious and consistently good no matter what you order. For us this was the best B&B we have stayed in.

Tips:

Kenny is quite rightly proud of Dunoon and is more than happy to share his knowledge of the area with guests. For example he booked ahead our Evening Meal for the day we arrived after a long drive to Dunoon at The Lorne. The food was great and the staff really helpful. It saved us from a great deal of hassle in finding somewhere good to eat. If you travel across to Gourock on the ferry , the Cafe Continental was very good. We also made use of the reasonable public transport on the Cowel peninsula and a day ticket is from only £2.99 . The Shore cafe is lovely at Blairmore and later that same day we visited the Osbourne House in Innellen for a lovely evening meal. All accessible from the B&B on bus route outside. Benmore Gardens is a must visit too. If possible get along to Largs on the Clyde Coast too.

(That's just me of course - you may differ 😀) --- Big hug for Tilly the dog... She's so well-behaved

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome by Kenny and wee Tilly the dog. Kenny is a very kind person and nothing is too much trouble for him to ensure your stay is perfect. Kenny had a 'new start' Callum for our breakfast waiter. Every day we watched Callum grow in confidence and I am sure under Kenny's guidance Callum will develop the gift of the banter too. Everything about Douglas Park is amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay there. One week was not enough. My shoulders, normally around my ears, relaxed and I felt the stress ebb away. Watch out for the Ducks! Thanks again Kenny - you are amazing. Yx

The Coylet Inn and The Lorne for dinner. Blairmore for lunch. Walk along Lock Eck, Benmore Gardens, Ostel Bay - just ask Kenny - he will keep you right.

Excellent place for touring surrounding areas or just to chill out and relax and take advantage of the peace and tranquility. Fabulous breakfast with plenty choices to suit everyone. You arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend.

The Tree Shop on the road to Inveraray is worth a visit as is Inveraray itself. Try the apple strudel in Brambles on Main Street, you won’t be disappointed. Also worth a visit is The Blairmore cafe in Blairmore. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly.

There is no better place to spend your visit to Dunoon. Fantastic quality of accomodation plus extra attention to detail. The host is warm and knowledgeable. We have dietary requirements which were well catered for. The Douglas Park even comes equipped with a bundle of fluff with waggy tail, named Tilly. Ken is very sensitive to the needs of those who may not be comfortable around dogs. We would barely have known she was there most of the time, as like us, she was very happy on a chair in front of the incredible views.

Tips:

There are so many breathtaking spots around Dunoon. We visited Toward, Castle Lachlan, Fyne Ales, The Strone Cafe, Tighnabruaich, Blairmore. Wherever we went, people were friendly and helpful.

Such a friendly guest house from arriving until leaving. Definitely one to return to and confidently recommend to others. Situated on the shoreline with fabulous different views every day. We saw 5 Bottlenose dolphins and porpoises during our stay along with various navy ships, boats and even a submarine! We stayed in room 4 which was a luxurious king with a large ensuite. Tastefully decorated with great views from the comfortable seats situated in front of the huge windows. A large choice was offered at breakfast including the usual hot & cold foods but also haggis, haddock, salmon and a delicious brie & bacon crumpet. One morning we even had homemade rhubarb freshly picked locally. Thanks Ken, for making me eat Tunnocks teacakes and liquorice toffees everyday!!

Tips:

The Lorne restaurant and The Ardentinny Inn I would recommend for cocktails and dinner. Pucks Glen was great for an interesting walk with a waterfall and Benmore Gardens a must! Their ice cream and homemade cakes in the van outside were delicious and well deserved after our wandering around the beautiful gardens. Driving out along any of the coast roads were spectacular wherever you ended up!

Great stay in this lovely guest house - Kenneth is a brilliant host and we felt really spoilt. Our room overlooked the Firth of Clyde and we saw porpoise several times - great views. All was very comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfast was delicious - we had full bacon & egg breskfast the first day and smoked salmon and scrambled egg the second - all excellent.

Great fish & chips from Dunoon - ask Kenneth for the recommendation. Visited the island of Bute - lovely views of the isle of Arran.

Nice little touches, which are not always available in high end hotels, such as bottled water, Tunnocks tea cakes, herbal tea and bathroom extras such as cotton pads & buds, hand sanitiser and bath robes. As returnees we know to choose room 4 with its amazing views over the water. We always try to book in here when visiting family in the area.

Excellent service and top class highland hospitality. Very comfortable accommodation, and although the bed was comfortable, bedroom well laid out my room did not have the en-suite, but a shower room for exclusive use of guests in this room. Food excellent, service excellent as was off road parking at the front. Tilly (the wee dug) was very welcoming, friendly and a great character. Your host at the Douglas Park is very accommodating and can even provide needle and thread for the repair of seams etc. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at the DP the room was lovely and we had a beautiful sea view just sitting looking out over the water was so calming, and our host Ken couldn’t do enough for us, the breakfast is amazing, any kind of cooked breakfast you want including smoked salmon or smoked haddock or kippers, and the usual, bacon, black pudding, haggis, sausage, ect and eggs anyway you want them, they even have a DP specialty crumpet with bacon & brie, ken is very kind and considerate, and we definitely will be back in the near future. Sandra & Paul from Glasgow.

Tips:

The Argyle hotel has lovely food, and the Italian restaurant next door that is part of the hotel, the food is lovely in there also, we also had a nice meal at the Lorne, if it’s a sunny day it’s just nice to walk along the beach. There’s also putting and swimming if it’s opened, there’s also an activity place for bigger children, with archery ect, although we were not there long enough to go many places, and we only had one really sunny day.

Home from Home as soon we stepped through the door. Amazing breakfasts and would recommend the porridge with a dram of Whisky to start and then Bacon, Brie and Sweet Chilli Crumpet. We had an amazing view from our room and at night sat and watched the Porpoises and the Fishermen gathering their Creels. There were a pair of Binoculars in the room along with hot water bottles, which were a lovely touch. Ken made us feel like family and little Tilly loved cuddles and her belly rubbed. I cannot recommend this place enough and so glad we chose here and not the St Ives, which I did not like the look of once seeing in true light in Dunoon! Room tip - upgrade to King Bed Room!

Tips:

It’s a 20 minute flat easy walk into Dunoon. We visited a lovely Vintage Tea Room called Deja vu for lunch and they did amazing soup, Toasties and Home Baking. The Argyll is nice for dinner and from 4,30 they do two courses for £9.95 and the courses are a good size. Drive to Oban if you can and also take the road to Portavadie- Breathtaking scenery!

Immaculately presented guest house, staff welcoming and friendly. Beautiful views and gorgeous rooms. One of the best guest houses I have stayed in personally, it was just pristine throughout with beautiful decor and very homely. The breakfast options were outstanding and you must try the haggis or a wee dram in your porridge. Ken the owner made us feel so welcome.

Tips:

If you love to walk there’s plenty at nearby Benmore anything from beginner to a bit more strenuous with gorgeous views of Loch Eck and/or the beautiful Scottish landscape and forests. Taking a right out of the guest house towards loch striven you can appreciate the lovely views of the Isle of Bute and Cumbria. The holy loch and loch long are on your doorstep too so it’s a great base to see several Scottish lochs over a few days.

The Douglas Park Guest House is lovely, our room was very nice and extremely comfortable. Ken and Shona are lovely people. Ken was a very attentive host - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and served very promptly. The views from the breakfast room are stunning- a fantastic way to start your day! However, beware the Tunnocks tea cake you will find on your tea tray they are very very addictive!!!

Tips:

Take the Colintraive Ferry to Bute. We had a great day wandering around Mount Stuart (the House wasn’t open but the grounds are incredible.) Have lunch at the Kingarth Hotel and Smiddy Bar; beautiful food, wonderful hosts and a warm and cosy welcome! Then drive to Scalpsie Beach to look at the basking seals - paradise! Back to Dunoon, have dinner at the Lorne or 51st State both very different, but both offer the friendly Scottish welcome we came to expect! Want a coffee? Pop and see Rosemary in the Rock cafe! Lovely mug of coffee and a chip butty!!! Everywhere you go you will blow your mind with the stunning views - we can’t wait to return!

My best experience ever in the most beautiful guesthouse run by the kindest and friendly hosts. Perfect place, immaculate clean and so beautifully decorated. Lovely room, very comfortable bed and super nice shower. Really enjoyed the detail of the chocolate marshmallow treat every evening. Great options for breakfast, delicious and abundant. I felt extremely welcomed and I appreciated all recommendations, help and tips from Ken. I only stayed for two nights but I will definitely come back and stay longer. I totally recommend staying in Douglas Park Guesthouse.

Tips:

I came to Dunoon for a short stay because I wanted to visit Benmore Botanic Gardens. I only stayed for 2 days, which I think was too short as there is so much to see all around! I'd love to come back, to see Benmore Gardens again (around May when the rhododendrons will be blossoming) and to move around, explore and discover the many wonderful things around.

We were warmly greeted with tea and homemade shortbread. Kenneth and Shona were friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely with lots of thoughtful touches and there was a view over the water from the sitting room, where binoculars and a telescope were there to watch the porpoises. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and the porridge, served with cream and whisky, was a real treat. We only stayed one night as we are travelling to Mull. It is an exceptional B&B.

Tips:

We met up with friends for fish and chips at Anselmo’s. Very good fish and “twice dipped” chips and homemade tartare sauce. The Castle museum was closed as we were there in the evening but it’s a nice walk up to the viewpoint.

A very warm welcome awaited me at Douglas Park . This was a return visit for me and everything was just as I remembered it. Very comfortable room with lovely bed linen and towels. The hot water bottle was a very welcome addition, not because I was cold, but I found it extremely comforting as I was recovering from a bereavement. The breakfast was every bit as delicious as I remembered. I would highly recommend Douglas Park as a wonderful place to stay on a visit to Cowal.

Tips:

Highly recommended as a very warm and pleasant place to stay. Plenty to do in Cowal, walks, beaches, shops, wonderful scenery and Benmore Botanic Gardens all within easy reach.

Douglas Park was an incredible property. It was immaculately clean. Everywhere. If you could rate above the standard this guest house would definitely get extra marks. The whole guest house looks like it has just been newly refurbished. The decor is modern and elegant. The rooms were spacious and if you choose to get a front room the view is spectacular. There is free parking but if you don’t have a car there is a bus straight outside the door that takes you into town, to the ferries, to your next destination. Ken, our host, was so helpful. He recommended places for dinner that were excellent. He knew the bus and ferry schedules off by heart he helped us to organize ordering flowers for a friend we were going on to visit. Breakfast was included and was absolutely delicious. Don’t pass this up!! Service was prompt and attentive. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone!! Thank you, Ken and Shona, for making us feel so welcome and taken care of during our stay!!

Tips:

If Ken recommends Livingstones (Italian)and/or The Lorne (Family style pub) believe him. They were amazing. Great service and even better food!!

A superb b&b with exceptional quality food and standard of service. We stayed in the King room with fabulous sea views from the huge bay window. The room and bathroom were beautiful with those extra touches that make this b&b deserve the positive reviews it receives.

Tips:

Try The Lorne and Livingstons for good quality food and service. For an excellent fish supper try the cafe attached to Anselmo s - the best fish & chips we have had in years. Don't miss Pucks Glen for an enchanting walk through a gorge of waterfalls.

Rave reviews on travel websites motivated us to chose this guesthouse. What we experienced surpassed our expectations. The rooms and bathrooms are stunningly beautiful and furnished with exquisite taste. We had a sizable and very comfortable room with a large bay window overlooking the scenic Firth of Clyde. Shona and Kenneth went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one providing lots of tips on places to visit and walks in Argyll. The location Dunoon is the perfect gateway for visiting the highlands served with a very convenient,regular and reliable car and passenger ferry service crossing the Firth to Gourock which is just a 55 minute drive from Glasgow. When we return to visit the highlands this guest house will be the first on our list as a base.

Beautiful guest house in a lovely location. The room is one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in, really gorgeous decor and a beautiful view. We had a nice little table and two comfortable chairs by the window to enjoy the view and there was also some binoculars to watch the wildlife. Nice touches include lots of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and tunnocks tea cakes! Lovely large bed, with good quality linen and very nice bathroom with large shower. Breakfast was excellent - the first morning I had a muffin with bacon and brie, my husband had full Scottish breakfast, both were excellent. The following morning we both had smoked haddock with poached egg. I would definitely recommend this guest house and the lovely hosts, Ken and Shona who were helpful and friendly.

Superb guest house managed by a truly lovely couple, Shona and Ken. My husband and I stayed one night (1 Dec) and wished we had booked a longer stay. Squeaky clean, stylishly furnished and very comfortable - with one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had. Thank you both - we hope to see you again soon!

Tips:

Ask Ken or Shona about places to eat - we plumped for a fish and chip supper in Dunoon (can’t remember the name) recommended by Ken - very tasty.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Douglas Park Guest House. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with ample storage and laying space. Breakfast was delicious.

We have had various short breaks at this lovely guest house and would not hesitate to recommend it. From the moment you walk in everything is lovely and fresh and the breakfast is delicious. We will go back again.

Tips:

I would recommend either of the double rooms at the front of the house as the views are lovely. It is very pleasant to sit at the window in the evening.

We only stayed for two nights but had a great time. Stayed in a sea view room which was well worth the extra money. We are private people but felt comfortable that had we needed anything we only had to ask. Ken and Pete were very friendly and inviting and cooked up a mean breakfast. Great start to the day. Thank you for a lovely relaxing short break

Tips:

We ate out both night, first in the Lorne where we both had fish and chips, yummy! Second night in Livingstons, an Italian bistro. Food here was very tasty and lovely ambience and welcoming staff. Both restaurants well worth a visit

Excellent and caring hosts ensured our stay was welcoming and very comfortable. The entire establishment was extremely clean and cared for and in pristine condition. Breakfast was a delight with something for everybody and the cooked choices were first class and presented with care and piping hot.

Tips:

An evening meal at Livingstones, John Street, Dunoon, proved to be the correct choice. Friendly greeting and waitress who was discreetly attentive and with a sense of humour. Four adults at our table and everyone very happy. Pizza was my choice and it was excellently done. Reasonable pricing was a bonus and we would definitely return.

We stayed four nights in this little gem. The owners Shona and Ken are lovely genuine people who made us so welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms are beautiful and well furnished. The bed, (we had the "Princess" bed) extremely comfortable, The little "extras" such as chocolates, tea cakes and fresh water every day were a nice touch. Breakfast was wonderful with a great choice of menu, which really did set us up for the day. The house has stunning views over the Clyde......first morning we saw a submarine, the following morning we saw dolphins from the breakfast room! We would return to the Douglas Park in a heartbeat........they are truly deserving of their 5* status........highly recommend!

Tips:

The Douglas Park is situated in a lovely area, with wonderful walks nearby. A visit to Benmore Botanic Gardens is a must! You should allow a couple of hours to see it all, then a lovely coffee/lunch in the little cafe! Dunoon has lots of lovely restaurants to chose from. We ate at the Livingstone, The Lorne, The Osbourne and the local Indian (the name escapes me). Not once were we disappointed. The surrounding scenery is simply stunning......lots of crystal clear lochs, forests and sightings of wild deer, pheasant, partridge, eagles and sea birds. We intend to return at a different time of year next time, perhaps late Spring, but I've a feeling you won't be disappointed whichever season you choose to visit this beautiful area.
