Why stay at The Argyll Hotel?

A charming 19th century building, with a prime location right next to the River Clyde, The Argyll Hotel, Dunoon is ideal for exploring the town of Dunoon. The individually decorated rooms are all packed with charm and offer a flat screen television, tea/coffee making facilities and free WiFi.

The historic town of Dunoon is situated on the scenic Cowal Peninsula and shows many reminders of its legacy as a Victorian resort, most notably in its attractive pier and promenade.

The hotel has two restaurants, one with a menu of pub grub favourites as well as a range of curries, and Rio, which has a Mediterranean inspired menu, filled with hearty Italian dishes and Spanish tapas.
