My husband, mother, aunt and myself stayed at Foresters House for the occasion of our wedding blessing. I do not usually write reviews but Rhona and Jim really made our stay at Foresters House very special. We stayed in Room 1, a double en-suite (with pull out couch, if needed). Our room was spotless and well appointed with excellent quality linens, duvets, and a variety of pillows, fluffy towels (with flannels) and a coffee/tea service with chocolates and biscuits. Our immediate impression was that there was a real attention to detail that you would usually find in much more expensive accommodation. The house itself was very very clean with a good-sized lounge in which we enjoyed a continental breakfast in the morning. Of course, what impressed me was Rhona and Jim also put thought into their morning menu in that you could indulge in vegetarian, full breakfast or weight watcher selections (for £5). However, we found the continental breakfast was more than sufficient and the porridge was excellent (and that is coming from my husband who is a Scot). We are well travelled and I can honestly say that Foresters met all of our requirements. However, what really made our stay very special was Rhona and Jim. They are very knowledgeable of the area and extremely welcoming hosts who clearly take great pride in their home and go out of their way to make a stay very comfortable without imposing. Street parking was right in front of Foresters and we walked over the marina and along the Firth of Clyde which made for a lovely after evening stroll. If you are planning a trip to Cowal the ferry is very close by and we easily hopped on a ferry to Dunoon. Glasgow is not far and one of our most enjoyable experiences was eating at the Inverkip Hotel. The food was excellent!!!! We ate there three times it was so good. We also had a nice sandwich at Rivas at the marina. Foresters was a perfect location and I cannot speak highly enough about our experience. We have a disabled relative and Rhona even took the time to show us the single, disabled accessible rooms in the garden which were very well appointed and in keeping with the rest of the house - spotless. We totally relaxed at Foresters and I think that was largely down to the attention to detail by Rhona and Jim. On our last night Rhona even took the time to give us a hand made wedding blessing card and some chocolates which really touched us. I would highly recommend Foresters and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
