We stayed at the property in June and were really happy that we chose it for our holiday. We received really great And helpful instructions before we arrived which meant that the house was easy to find and the journey was stress free. The flat itself is well equipped and was very much a home from home. Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The shower was great and the heating was efficient - perfect for those chilly Scottish evenings. The views from the flat overlooking the loch were lovely.
The staff in the tourist office in Dunoon were really helpful, and we used the house as a base for exploring the local area and beyond. It was ideally placed for everything that we wanted to do. There's plenty to do and see in the area, and we will definitely be back to continue with our explorations. Highly recommended!
Booked through "Argyll Self-Catering Holidays" - couldn't have been simpler or more pain-free. You let them know when you're going to arrive - I 'phoned from the Gourock Ferry and they give you directions to the property. The property itself is beautiful. It has been refurbished to high specification and there was ample space for me, my husband and my friend. The front bedroom is lovely, the back one suffers from having a potting shed/conservatory attached, so it's quite dark. The view from the living room is great and the three-piece-suite in there is very conducive to afternoon napping. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped (you have to set the boiler when you go in) and I would advise turning up the refrigerator. We ate in the kitchen and, if I had to give one "note" it would be to change the dining table in there - it's a bit awkward to sit at, at the sides (the table top is mounted on a cupboard and you can't really get your knees under) - but that's it, really. The bathroom has a decent shower (not as good as at home, but then, few places have) and the water gets hot very quickly. The thermostat is very responsive, so you can have the house as hot or cold as you like. Sandbank itself is a bit run down but there is a general store in walking distance. Dunoon is close by-ish (10-15 minutes' drive) and has a a Co-op and a Morrisons. Our stay cost £75 a night and was completely worth the money and I would definitely consider going back.
