Accommodation Description:

The Ardyne is an elegant listed Victorian villa, in a fabulous position on the seafront on the Isle of Bute, five minutes by car from the main ferry or a leisurely stroll.

The Ardyne is situated in a prominent position on the seafront, in Rothesay on the beautiful Isle of Bute, five minutes by car from the main ferry, or a leisurely stroll for those leaving their cars at home. Our comfortable hotel is an elegant listed Victorian villa designed by John Orkney in 1875 and its importance is recognised by Historic Scotland. Its setting within well tended gardens creates an ideal ambiance for a relaxing break and its spectacular views across Rothesay Bay to the Cowal Hills and the Kyles of Bute are unsurpassed.

We have 19 ensuite bedrooms, all comfortably furnished. There is a large lounge & bar, both with stunning sea views where you can relax, enjoy a drink, read the papers or just sit and stare. Our dining room also enjoys the magnificent views and our menus always feature fresh local produce.

Meals are complemented by a fine selection of wines, beers and malt whiskies. There is parking for guests.
