We had a superb seafood meal at a really more than reasonable price! Service was friendly, kind and fast; after lunch we were so comfortable that we stayed 2 hours more playing the pool! Unfortunately we cannot rate the Hotel, since we stayed there only for lunch. Will come back for sure if again in the wonderful Bute

We visited The Kingarth Hotel for a meal as we had been there 5 years previous and remembered how enjoyable it was. We cannot review the Kingarth on it's bedrooms as we only ate there. My family and I (myself, my husband and our children, aged 11 and 8) really enjoyed our meal at The Kingarth. The staff were extremely...

We were booked for a short two night stay for a wedding on the Isle of Bute. Good accommodation, friendly and efficient staff, great food, good beer. The location was excellent, beautiful scenery, very relaxed feel to the Inn.

Recently been staying in Rothesey and had a coach excursion around the Isle of Bute. The scenery had been spectacular when our driver stopped at The Kingarth Hotel for our coffee break. We were not expecting to find such a lovely Hotel/Restaurant in the middle of nowhere! We were welcomed in the bar and served our coffee/tea and were tempted...

Great service from start to finish, waitress polite and welcoming. Lovely pub, clean and comfortable. Menu for every taste. Pudding to die for! All of our party would return. Made a great end to our wonderful stay in Bute.

We arrived for Sunday lunch. They were busy! We were made comfortable and staff were very attentive. Food was great. Specials board had some unusual choices ... I especially liked the taster deserts. It was interesting to watch the manager look after the table next to me who (to my eye) were never, ever going to be happy ! Very...
