Nor only architecturally splendid but friendly staff who allowed me to steep my arthritic hands in the plentiful hot water.

Although the male toilets where victoriana looking, the female toilets should not be a charge for as there simply the same as any other bog standard public toilet. Rip off fire the female side. Don't even deserve the one star

You can not go to Rothesay with out going to see the gents toilets at the Pier.Please remember to knock before going in if you are a lady! I have never been in a gents toilet before but these are fantastic.

Definitely worth a visit to spend a penny or in this case 40p! The old toilets are well kept and have lovely tile work. They are situated by the pier and near to where the ferry docks.

An absolutely superb display of Victorian municipal plumbing. Whether or not you are a plumbing affectionado or just a wide eyed tourist like me, you should find the spectacle of this "convenience" simply superb.

It sounds strange but this is really worth going to see. This is what Victorian toilets were like, and these really are the genuine article. We had showers here after arriving by boat and it was like a time warp.

Eight shillings bought me a perch on a “Deluge Adamant” such are the inflationary times in which we live. Never has our nation’s architectural heritage been so abused! Worth a visit but I’d give in five minutes.

The Victorian toilets are at the Rothesay Pierhead , and well worth a visit. Built in the late 1800,s. They are a riot of marble and tiles, and would have seemed more at home in an upmarket Victorian Hotel, but they were Public Toilets, and...More

Not much of a touristic attraction in my view. Other than a bit different tiles on the floor and the walls, there is not much to see (in the ladies toilets). Very clean though and worth giving a chance.
