The Royal Marine Hotel in Dunoon is set amongst the stunning Argyllshire scenery. Beautifully positioned right on the seafront and near to the ferry terminal running between Gourock and Hunters Quay. The Royal Marine Hotel is located approx 2 miles from the centre of Dunoon. The hotel is within easy travelling distance of Glasgow. The most direct ferry route is the Western Isles ferry from Gourock.

The original hotel was built in 1856 as the Marine Hotel and a few years later a number of rooms were let to the exclusive Clyde Yacht Club.

In 1872 the Club received a Royal patronage and became the Royal Clyde Yacht Club. In 1888 the hotel was gutted by a fire and the Club engaged the services of the famous architect T L Watson, to design a new building.

The housewarming of the new hotel coincided with the opening season of yachting on the Clyde in 1890 and the building renamed The Royal Marine Hotel. Since then, the Royal Marine has been welcoming travellers from all over the world. The hotel is now owned by the Greig family who have invested heavily on the improving the facilities and delivering a higher standard of service.

The hotel bedrooms for instance, have seen massive improvement in recent years. They are all well-equipped, ranging from cosy singles through to premier sea view rooms with four poster or sleigh beds.

Public areas are spacious and comfortable and both the bar and restaurant have fantastic views across the water. At the weekends the hotel lays on entertainment packages with 5 course banquets, music and dance (refer to right hand panel for further info.).
