Flat is ideally placed, minutes walk to town, trains, buses and millport ferry. very clean and well kept and secure apartments. Owners are very friendly and helpful, welcome tray with tea, coffee etc for your arrival. Have stayed here twice and will be visiting again.

“Lanico provided the best possible lodging in Largs for my family and our needs!”

My husband, 15 year-old son and I had a comfortable stay at Lanico in Largs. Lanico was within walking distance of everything we needed in Largs. We had Freedom of Scotland Rail Passes rather than a car. Getting around was never difficult as the train station was so close. The journey to Glasgow was quick and easy. The Isle of Cumbrae was a great day trip. We rented bicycles on Cumbrae and made our way around the island with ease. We like to cook for ourselves. Morrisons Grocery was well-stocked and only a short distance. Quick purchases could be made even closer at a bakery, butcher shop, or a small grocery with late hours. Lanico had a great little kitchen with a view of the street below. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners Richard and Karen were great to deal with. Karen met us at the apartment and gave a quick rundown of things in the apartment and what was nearby. After that they were available by cell if we needed information. I look forward to another stay at Lanico.

“Great Value”

We used Lanico Apartment whilst we attended the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It is strange that there have been no reviews of these apartments for over two years so here is an update. Lanico is part of a block of four or five similar apartments at the end of a street. It is near local facilities, beach, restaurants, railway and roads as well as local shops (the butchers mentioned elsewhere is still there selling excellent and unusual meats!) As a base for travelling to Glasgow by train or road it is well placed. It is also not too far from Loch Lomand and even closer to the island of Cumbrae. Our hosts provided free ferry tickets to the island which were very welcome indeed. The ferry tickets were part of a whole series of extras provided which made such a difference to our week. Tea, coffee sugar etc. can be expected but a basket of Scottish delicacies was a lovely surprise.
The apartment has a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room with TV/DVD player and DVDs, a comfortable bedroom and a bathroom (which it must be said could do with some refurbishment!). All rooms were homely,clean and everything was in good working order. Karen welcomed us to Lanico and provided a phone number for any emergencies! Limited car parking was available outside but we used the free car park nearby which suited our needs.
All in all we loved our time in Largs and would recommend The Lounge for value meals and Nardinis for ice cream!

Room Tip: Larger groups would need to book two or more apartments!

The location is superb, its centrally located and parking space is easy to locate.
The furnishings are great, and the hosts/owners are very nice and made one fell very welcome.
The building has 4 rental flats, and security is excellent as there are 3 locked doors to gain entry to the flat I rented.
I would stay again without a doubt, value for the money not to mention the excellent host/owner being available and also the welcome basket was a pleasant surprise!

Over recent years we have enjoyed Karen and Richard's warm hospitality, and have stayed at every one of their five holiday flats, all of which were of a very high standard, attractive and very comfortable. And the welcome tray laid out for us was always very welcome after our journey.

The flats are in a very central location, close to the railway station and the shops, restaurants etc. The seafront is just five minutes walk away, where you can sit on one of the many seats provided, enjoy the seabreeze and watch the ferry go back and forward to the nearby Isle of Cumbrae (very popular with cyclists).

Largs has been a very popular holiday destination for our family and we hope to enjoy Karen and Richard's hospitality for many more years.

Me and my wife rented the lanico apartment as part of a large family group who also rented 3 of the other apartments.
We were welcomed by Karen who was very pleasant and very helpful and they also supply a welcome pack that is very nice including haggis and scots oats which were lovely &and a lovely pamper pack in the bathroom.
The lanico is a well equipped apartment which has everything you would need ,the kitchen has just been refitted and is very well equipped.
the living and dining area is large enough to spend time comfortably and eat.
the bathroom has a bath and shower which have constant hot water which is very handy.
The location of the apartments is excellent as you are very close to local amenities such as the seafront and food shopping.
Just round the corner is a local butchers which stocks all the usual meats plus a few you may have not tried before ,my wife chose ZEBRA & I chose IMPALA which were both beautiful.
There are several excellent pubs nearby which do very good food for a reasonable price the best we found was JD Sharps which is a 5 minute walk away.
Once again the accomodation is excellent and the location is superb.

Thank you very much Karen and Richard we would definately reccomend you and your apartments to anyone visiting largs.
