To be fair, the owners were very friendly, and the breakfast was nice but it does seem a shame that the general maintenance and upkeep just didn't seem to be getting done.
From the outside, the building looked lovely, and the views across the bay were good (although the best vantage point was in part of the grounds marked "Private"). Inside, though, it looked as if it had been redone at some point in the late eighties and not touched since and reminded me a bit of a youth hostel (and that wasn't yesterday, I can tell you!). Other reviewers have talked about the funny bathroom arrangements and ours was like this too, as "our" bathroom was not ensuite, but rather located down a corridor, although apparently not used by anyone else. In some ways though, if you have to leave the room to go to the loo, you might as well have a communal one.
Location was good for going into town, and easy to find from the Brodick ferry terminal. Convenient, but definitely not one if you are looking for luxury...
