“Disgusting”
Reviewed October 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014
3
people found this review helpful

My husband, sister and myself all senior citizens stayed at Recroy for one week from 13th September and found it disgusting. There was no running hot water apart from the shower and a note left on the table said that we should light the fire for hot water. The weather was beautiful and it was much too hot for a fire. However we had to light it but there was no bucket or shovel for the ashes and after two days we couldn't get the logs to burn because of all the ash build up so we had to carry hot water in saucepans from the shower or use the kettle. The dishwasher was broken the baskets were off the runners and could not be fixed so the door wouldn't close. No washing up bowl so had to use the sink which was disgusting and stained badly. There were cobwebs on the ceilings. There wasn't one shelf in the fridge and as we had stopped for shopping it all had to be piled on top of the salad box including bottles of wine.The shower room was disgusting and the tiles and round the edges were full of mildew. The floors were badly badly stained. Some of the windows were so dirty we couldn't see out of them. No cupboards to store food in it all had to be left on top of the work surface. I had driven 80 miles to reach Recroy, arriving in the evening after our late flight from Bristol to Inverness airport and if I hadn't been so tired we would never have stayed there. Couldn't get a signal on our mobile phones so was unable to phone the owner/caretaker to complain. The whole place need a thorough clean and was in a bad state of disrepair. If you like home comforts then stay away from Recroy.

“A great location spoiled”

Expected a basic cottage (judged by site photos) but it was neglected & unclean. No racks in fridge, problems with using dishwasher & T. V, which we had to solve for ourselves, mould in walk in shower, on draining board & around taps, table tennis table was propped up underneath with a garden chair & condensation on windows spoiled the view .

“Peaceful and secluded”
Reviewed October 2, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Recroy is the perfect place to go if you truly want to get away from it all. Located on a remote (read isolated) coastal road, it is very secluded but good for a relaxing week.
Although it was just myself and my husband, Recroy does have good facilities for a family - several different living spaces, two bathrooms and a good selection of books and games. There is a tv and dvd player, although there were no dvds to watch in the property and no tv reception. It worked out well though because we luckily had brought quite a few dvd's with us which we made use of on the rainy days! A fairly new sound system has a handy ipod dock too.
As it is quite isolated (it takes at least 30 minutes to get to from the main road), be prepared and take supplies with you. There is a village shop about 2 miles away, but isn't open on a Sunday, and only opens 9-5. Best to stock up in Lochinver or Ullapool before travelling to the property, especially if arriving late on the Saturday.
But plenty of beautiful scenery and interesting places to visit/walk to if the weather holds up.
Our only criticism is that the property is a bit neglected and could do wth a bit of a facelift - peeling paintwork, threadbare cushions etc. And could do with a really good clean. Dog hairs and stains on the chaise in the dining room, stains on the cork floor, cobwebs in corners, floors that didn't seem to have been vacuumed after the previous guests... With a little bit of attention, it could be a fantastic place to stay.
