“excellent B&B”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Spotless, comfortable, good value for money and very pleasant, friendly owners...what more could one want! From Inverkip it's an easy drive to Glasgow or Ayrshire and the ferries to the Clyde Islands are only minutes away. A brilliant place to stay.

We have once again received a GOLD award from Visit Scotland for Service and Hospitality. An inspector from Visit Scotland spends a night in the house incognito and issues us with the star rating. I f he or she feels that the establishment deserves a gold rating he or she gives their findings to a committee to decide. During this process the reviews on Tripadvisor are taken into consideration before awarding gold. I would like to thank you for taking the time and trouble to put in a review and for helping us to retain our GOLD award. Apart from the importance of the accolade it gives us great satisfaction to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay at The Foresters. We hope you are well and happy and that we will once again have the pleasure of welcoming you to The Foresters. Thank you Jim and Rhona

My wife and I stayed for another weekend at this fabulous guest house. The welcome when we arrived, the exceptionally clean room, the breakfast and the wave off in the morning made us feel like friends.
I am sure we will return again.

A perfectly enjoyable two-night stay at this spotlessly clean B&B. The couple who run this establishment, Jim and Rhona Wallace, make you extremely welcome, and provide an excellent cooked breakfast in lovely, cosy surroundings. (Even the peach-coloured carpet in the hallway added to the warm welcome we received on arriving.) The bedroom that we were in was very tastefully decorated, and the bathroom was immaculate, boasting a lovely walk-in shower. (As an added extra, the twin beds that we slept on were so-o-o-o-o comfortable.) Given a key for our own convenience, we could come and go as we pleased, and weren't disturbed in any way. An experience worth repeating!

Everything about this B&B is perfect. Our room was a good size, spotlessly clean and all we could wish. Added to this was a warm welcome and superb breakfast - don't miss the black pudding! Excellent value for money and a great location, we took the train from Inverkip the short journey to the ferry across to Bute. Rhona's local knowledge was very helpful and we'd recommend this gem to anyone.

We were struggling to find accommodation around Largs when visiting Millport and eventually found this place through an internet search and booked only a few days before we visited. We received a friendly greeting on arrival and shown our room. It was a smallish twin room, but perfectly adequate for our needs. The whole place and was spotlessly clean as reported by other visitors. Other bedrooms were larger, but I guess that's the luck of the draw. We opted for the lifestyle breakfast (continental). It was just what we needed as we rarely have a cooked breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area

Room Tip: Book early.

Having randomly stumbled upon the Foresters House I was incredibly happy with the perfect cosy, clean and spacious room I ended up sleeping in that night. The host provided a hearty welcome and was very helpful and knowledgeable in providing some travel advise. The delicously prepared and served cooked breakfast was a great start of the day. In summary, a great stay and definitely recommendable.

We stayed in the Foresters house as we'd heard it was nice and friendly and it was really handy for the Inverkip Marina. When we got there we were delighted with the standard of the accomodation. The rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean and there were lovely personal touches like chocolate mints in the bedroom (i have to confess I took ours home with me!).
The breakfast was fantastic too. High quality ingredients and really well prepared. Best black pudding I've ever had!
All in all Foresters is a great wee find and I'd recomend it to anyone!
