Inverkip Hotel - lovely family run Scottish hotel with outstanding food
Chart Room at Kip Marina - great food,overlooking marina
Fusion in Gourock - excellent small restaurant
Cafe Continental - lovely cafe and bar overlooking firth
Flava -great cafe and cocktail bar overlooking firth
Bath Street Arches - fantastic chef

Awesome

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left it was faultless. The owners were very friendly, the room we stayed in was incredible, the 4 poster bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was superb. Read more

Wonderfully friendly and helpful.

We needed a place to stay the night before flying back to the US. Upon seeing their availability, my friend and I decided Castle Levan would be a fun place to stay. We had a blast! Loved the castle and rooms. We felt so relaxed and welcomed. The wee hen party in our common room just added to the fun. When we had some difficulty with our rental car when we needed to leave, the owners were very helpful and went above and beyond to help us out. Highly recommend. Read more

The rooms are clean and comfortable and so interesting! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The massage chair in our suite was great. Kim and Maria, the owners, are very warm and kind.
Dislikes?
Only slight awkwardness was the shared bathroom was in one of the bedrooms so my friend had to walk through my room in the night to use the facilities. At least it wasn't the White Lady! No big issue.

Pleasant, comfortable

Pleasant. Read more

Response

I would like to respond to the "pricey" comment. Our Arched bedchamber suite is £50 per person and for this price guests get two bedrooms and a private sitting room with massage chair and Tasimo coffee machine, not to mention use of our conservatory and battlements, plus a full Scottish breakfast. Most castles in Scotland are a much higher price. I am sorry this guest could not operate our 'gadgets' but I do demonstrate use on arrival and am available to help with difficulties.

Likes?
Lovely garden, comfortable bed, good breakfast, pleasant staff.
Dislikes?
Gadgets slightly irritating, we could not get the coffee machine & massage chair to work. But they were not the reason we came! Pricey.

Wonderful Venue with wonderful hosts

I stayed at the castle for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. We were in the lairds room which is just fantastic.
Breakfast was fantastic with a good variety of items, which we did not choose to use because the full scottish breakfast was delightful and could not be replaced with anything else. Read more

Likes?
The room was amazing, it has everything; character features with a modern touch and all the essentials you require from a b&b. Access to the battlements provided amazing views overlooking Dunoon.

Step Back in Time

We booked on-line after reading reviews and were not disappointed with the Castle accommodation or the warm welcome of Kim & Maria. Unfortunately we only had time for a two night stay but those two nights were brilliant and now looking forward to our next stay at Castle Levan. Read more

Likes?
The homely atmosphere and the granted freedom of the Castle to explore. Breakfast choice was outstanding from full Scottish to scrambled egg and smoked salmon.
Dislikes?
Yes - we had to leave after two days, but next time we will plan a longer stay, that's for sure.

Fantastic one night stay!

We were a group of 4 adults. There was plenty of room for us all and a choice of different places that we could spend time together outside of the bed chambers. Our hosts were lovely, polite and attentive (without being over the top), and the facilities provided us with everything we could need. There was plenty of choice for breakfast (all of it delicious) and ample tea/coffee available in the rooms. Read more

Likes?
The castle is beautiful, the hosts are lovely, the waterfall in the garden is rather spectacular (and definitely not what you'd expect!), and there is plenty of space to actually enjoying being there.
Dislikes?
No!

Amazing experience!

Lovely comfy bed, excellent breakfast, friendly hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble. More rhan happy for us to bring friends and family back to the castle for a cup of tea to show it off and make them jealous! Tucked away so that even the locals don't know it is there it is like stepping back in time but with all of today's comforts. Even the wi-fi was pretty good which with walls that thick is no mean achievement! All round really cool venue. Read more

Likes?
The view over the Firth of Clyde over to Bute and Dunoon from the battlements was amazing especially at sunset. Lovely courtyard garden or conservatory to sit in and massage chair in our sitting room.

Stunning and unexpected castle, If you have the chance you MUST stay here

As soon as you enter the small grounds and get a proper look at Castle Levan you know you have chosen somewhere special to stay. We were met in the courtyard and given a tour of all the areas that guests are permitted (including the battlements and waterfall!) Our room and personal bathroom were of a grand size and perfectly finished. Breakfast was cooked to order the and plentyful to fill is up before a long drive. We loved our stay and would gladly to stay again. Read more

Likes?
The personal service and beautiful rooms combined with that private feel.
Dislikes?
Castle Levan was perfect the only trouble we had was with the taxi firm that left us waiting for more than an hour.
