We spent the last two days of our Scottish tour at 16 Charles Street. Una's kindness and willingness to help in any way possible was a real treat. The house is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Una cooked breakfast to order each morning - delicious!
Highly recommended.

In the process of buying our home and moving to Largs, my Husband and I have stayed with Una several times. Having lived abroad for a number of years and experiencing many cultures, Scottish hospitality takes a lot to beat! Una could not do enough for us, nothing was too much for her. Our room was cosy, the towels and bedding were lovely and fresh. Breakfast in the morning couldn't be better. We would recommend 16 Charles Street for a lovely Scottish experience.

I had the pleasure of "going home" to Scotland in 2009. I stayed at 16 Charles Street for about 5 days upon arrival. Una is a warm and caring hostess with a great sense of humour - always smiling. With a muscle disability, I was challenged by the stairs, but Una's reassurance of being well looked after made my stay very pleasant. Breakfasts were fabulous. The decor, cleanliness and comfort of the room was impeccable and the shower room very accessible for me. I could have sat looking out that window in my room for days on end, listening to the wee train every hour and being wakened by the sea gulls in the morning - around 4:30 a.m. to be exact. But I did get out and about Scotland, and ended up staying with Una again the last few days of my trip. Going back there would be like "going home"! The reason this review is so late is that I had a hard time finding a review site, so I gave up (I had to mark July 2012 to get my review posted). Sorry Sandy & Una, but I hope this will encourage others to stay with you. - Kathryn

Room Tip: If you're met at the door with a smile and someone who is listening to your needs, then proceed.

Myself, my daughter and my sister stayed here for 2 nights in July for a wedding in Largs. We were made very welcome by Una on our arrival. Had a lovely breakfast both mornings, which was made fresh and how we liked it.

The bedroom was a twin with a shared bathroom. It was immaculately clean, with tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits in the room. We had 2 x single beds and a pull out bed for my 2 year old. She slept right through which shows how comfortable it was!

Would really recommend this b&b to anyone looking to stay in largs! Just a very short stroll to seafront, town and supermarket!

Room Tip: Twin room with shared bathroom is bright, spacious and comfortable!

Myself and my husband travelled to Largs the weekend of 20 April for my Mothers 80th birthday celebrations. I picked 16 Charles Street to stay for the weekend for several reasons, but the main one being the fantastic reviews on here, all of which Una more than lived up to. I cannot say enough how helpful Una was to me before our arrival, as I was trying to plan a family party from 500 miles away, so she helped me with all sorts of things, recommendations, useful phone numbers etc....a truly helpful hostess...!!! Our double room was great, and we loved the spacious and quirky en suite. Lots of little extra touches in the room which were appreciated...toiletries (I forgot to pack shower gel so this was especially useful), tissues, hairdryer, and a lovely welcome tray with nice biscuits..! Fresh towels every day too!
Breakfast was fantastic, and lots of it, my husband was very pleased to taste proper Scottish Lorne sausage and decent black pudding!
I wouldn't look to stay anywhere else in Largs in the future, Una is indeed the Hostess with the Mostest, and I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone.
Thanks Una for all your help, a great stay and making us feel at home.

Room Tip: Brilliant location, quiet but also central for everything.
