No-one ever looks back and thinks ‘That month I worked late every night was awesome’.
Make much better memories with today’s Big Deal on a one or two night stay at The Royal Marine Hotel.
Packed with period features and many unique quirks, The Royal Marine Hotel has lots of character.
Currently under new ownership and being refurbished, it is the opposite of a bland, modern hotel.
Set among the stunning scenery of Argyll, it offers the perfect base for exploring both Dunoon and the surrounding countryside.
And with this Big Deal valid from the 1st of April until the end of October, it’s ideal for a summer break.
Originally dating back to 1856, The Royal Marine Hotel in Dunoon started life as home to the exclusive Clyde Yacht Club.
The entrance gate housed Scotland’s first telegraph office and was opened to relay yacht race results to London.
In the age of the mobile phone, there is less call for sending telegraphs.
However, The Royal Marine Hotel continues to offer a warm and friendly welcome to travellers whether they arrive by yacht, car or train.
Seven nights a week
Available seven days a week, this offer is for two people to enjoy a one or two night stay in a double or twin room at The Royal Marine Hotel.
Option one is for one night and includes a full Scottish breakfast plus a main course and glass of house wine for each diner.
Option two is for two nights and includes a full Scottish breakfast each morning plus a main course and glass of house wine for each guest on the first night.
There is a £20 per night supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
The hotel’s Ghillies Bar has an informal style with an extensive menu of classic dishes, light meals and succulent grills, all at reasonable prices.
The elegant Kintyre Bar and Restaurant Room offers informal dining by the fire.
See and do
The Royal Marine Hotel is located in an unspoiled area of Scotland where there are plenty of interesting walks and hiking opportunities.
With seven National Nature Reserves, Argyll and The Isles is one of the best places in Scotland to see iconic wildlife, including golden eagles, red deer, otters, seals, puffins, red squirrels, porpoises and rare white tailed sea eagles.
Golf is a major attraction as the local area boasts three golf courses including the magnificent Cowal Golf Course.
Other activities include sailing, wind surfing, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, pleasure cruises plus trips in a high speed jet boat.
The Royal Marine Hotel has attracted lots of TripAdvisor reviews. These recent comments, edited for length:
‘Excellent. Booked an overnight stay which was excellent. Old hotel but just changed hands. Were made most welcome… Food was good… would go again. Just don’t expect grandeur but suited us. Only complaint would be parking is an issue if really busy.’
‘Enjoyable stay… The owner and his lovely, friendly staff can’t do enough for you. Not far from the centre of Dunoon and a stone’s throw from Hunter’s Quay ferry terminal… The hotel itself a little tired, as with a lot of these establishments these days, and must have been very grand in its heyday. If we are in the area again, we would return but would ask for one of the upgraded rooms next time… the room we had, although basic, was cosy and had a lovely comfortable bed. An enjoyable stay.’
Available until the 31st October 2018, this offer would be ideal for a summer getaway.
This Big Deal would also make an ideal gift for anyone who could make good use of a seaside stay.
At just one hour forty minutes from Glasgow and a little over two and a half hours drive from Edinburgh, The Royal Marine Hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway on the coast.
