“sheer joy.”
Reviewed November 9, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just spent the night here and had a fabulous time. Very welcoming and had a delicious six course meal in beautiful dining room. Outdoor hot tub with lighting and sound system was fab-u-lous!!!! Would highly, highly recommend The Old Nunnery to anyone seeking a fabulous place to stay. The owners, Lorna and Alan could not have been more welcoming and helpful and deserve to have great success in the business.
Will certainly give The Nunnery a return visit as soon as possible.

Thank you for a great weekend and all the best.

“Fabulous Rental for Large Groups”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have stayed here twice, once in July with the family and again in August with a Hen Party. It's a great house for a large group of people, very spacious so your not on top of one another. Stunning views.
Family Holiday: Kids loved pool table and hot tub, we made use of the lawn out the front for lawn games. Great house for hide & seek! Great location for ferry over to Millport and Bute - good for cycling. Comfy beds.
Hen Party Weekend: Beauty treatments excellent. Dinner cooked in house excellent, and the dinning room is large enough for everyone to dine at once. Lovely big kitchen with plenty glasses and crockery for everyone. Additional drinks fridge was a bonus! Sound system excellent. Great location for Largs, easy to get taxis - we did a cocktail masterclass at the Lounge bar, staff there were great and prices so much cheaper than Glasgow. All in all this is a great property for groups, highly recommend it, friends have already booked up for next year.

Thanks for your feedback Heather and your constructive comments after your first stay. I am glad you enjoyed your break at the Old Nunnery and hope to welcome you back again to see the ongoing improvements we have made since then. The bathrooms are starting to be refurbished now, an outdoor barrel sauna is going in to compliment the hot tub and we are also including a topless butler for hen party weekends during 2015. Best wishes

“Perfect Holiday Rental”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here from Friday to Sunday with a group of 24 friends for a hen weekend. The experience was perfect. Two therapists arrived on the Friday night to provide treatments for all of the guests-everyone commented on how good the treatments were, On the Saturday evening a chef provided a six course meal for all the guests in the large dining room, the food was of a high standard and very delicious, everyone commented on the quality of the food and service! The holiday rental has enough rooms for everyone to get a bed, a large lounge for everyone to gather in and a hot tub with coloured lighting and sound system. The weekend was perfect and excellent value for money. We would highly recommend it to families and groups of friends!

“Fabulous house for large gathering”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at The old Nunnery during the first weekend in June . There was 18 of us in out party ,10 adults,8 children and four dogs !! . The view from the house was superb , looking out onto the sea . The house is very large with plenty of room for us all . We loved the living room , the seats were comfy and it was very welcoming . The games room/library was fab too . We would have liked another TV in here with the games console as it would have given us a room for the kids to chill in ! . The dinning area also was lovely with plenty of space for us to dine in comfort . The kitchen was large and really well equipped with plenty of dishes and glasses to go round . The bedrooms were well appointed , the beds were comfy and bedding immaculate . The bathrooms were all clean although we did have a small issue of one bathroom door not locking . We couldn't get the water in one shower to heat up but the other shower was fine . The hot tub was the star of the house .. It was a huge hit with everyone and the view from within was just superb .. We loved it . The chef and the evening meal was excellent . It was lovely to be cooked for giving us a complete break and the food and service was superb a real treat . The pampering packages were great as well . We had a small issue with the beautician being I'll on the fri so the owners very kindly rearranged for two beauticians on the Sunday . This was much appreciated but left us really pushed for time on Sunday morning . If there had been another treatment bed two people could have been treated at the same time . The towels and robes provided were excellent but we would have liked a tumble drier to dry things off as they got very wet from use in the hot tub .
We had a fabulous weekend and Alan and Lorna the owners were very friendly and helpful tk us ( they were in an annexe on site) .. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to a large group looking for comfortable , well equipped accomodation . With the addition of some small finishing touches this will be a fabulous house for parties and gatherings and we would definitely go back .. Thanks again

Thanks for your feedback Elaine and taking time do that, much appreciated. We had just opened a few weeks when you arrived and have already implemented some changes, such as 2 treatment couches, 2 therapists working at same time etc. Thanks for the tip about extra TV in games room - good idea. Hope to welcome you back again - and Bailey!

“Fantastic venue, would highly recommend it”

people found this review helpful

Just returned from a fantastic hen weekend at The Old Nunnery, the venue was everything we needed with 14 of us staying comfortably in the house. The hot tub was brilliant and well used by our group. The beautician was excellent and worked her socks off to ensure the girls all received the treatments they wanted. The location is ideal - only a 5 minute drive into the centre of Largs for coffee and ice cream at Nardinis or a cocktail in the evening at Room.

Finally the owners who were staying in the adjoning property were very welcoming and helped out throught the weekend with our any request - lovely couple.
