“Great views, great location.”
Reviewed December 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We found the apartment to be very homely and comfortable to stay in. The apartment was in a great location close to shops and restaurants.
Everything was clean and well presented. I would happily come back and stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for your complimentary remarks about Blairbank Apartment. We never tire of the fantastic view even after 12 years! The proximity to the town with its restaurants and bars is increasingly important given the reduced alcohol limit for driving recently introduced in Scotland!
Best wishes, Viv Shelley

“Fantastic gem on Bute”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We booked Blairbank as a group of six friends for games weekend. The apartment is gorgeous and a perfect base for a visit to the island. Everything we could require was there and Viv was an excellent host showing us all round the flat and telling us everything we needed to know (there was even a welcome bottle of vino - thank you Viv!) . There is lots of local information in the sitting room - walks, local attractions and even take a way menus. The accommodation is spotless and very modern with all mod cons and lovely courtyard which we all enjoyed sitting out in the sun(with a glass of vino,) and the views over the bay at the front are fantastic. Blairbank is only a ten minute walk (if that into town) so location is perfect. Would I recommend Blairbank- without a doubt, so much so we have already booked up again.

Thank you for your fantastic review of your stay at Blairbank Appartment. It's a real compliment that you booked ahead for next year. Amazingly I had an enquiry last week for the same weekend. It's impossible to predict how far ahead folks want to book so a good thing you got in early!! Best wishes and look forward to seeing you next year, Viv

“Very comfortable home from home.”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent three nights at Blairbank whilst attending a wedding on the Island.

We found that the apartment had absolutely everything that you would want to ensure that your stay was enjoyable. A spacious living/dining area with a fantastic view over Rothesay Bay and spotless sleeping accommodation. There is an en suite shower room upstairs and a bathroom downstairs with shower attachment. The twin room is cosy and the kitchen is well appointed.

We had a look through the various holiday properties and plumped for Blairbank. A choice which we are more than happy to recommend to other travelers to the island.

We were met by Viv on our arrival and she took the time to show us around and point out all of the different facilities which were available to us.

Were we to return to Rothesay at any time and were looking to rest our heads, then Blairbank would certainly be our first choice.

Thank you for such a fantastic review of your stay at Blairbank Apartment (the first with pics!) - it makes our efforts so worthwhile. I'm so pleased that you had a great wedding at Mountstuart, that the weather was good, and that the Waverley did a 'sail past' while you were here. We would love to welcome you again in the future if you return to 'beautiful' Bute. Best wishes, Viv

Thank you for your complimentary remarks about Blairbank Apartment. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the stunning views. Such a shame that the weather was not as good as it can be to see the island at its best. 4/5 is good but I would be interested to know where we lost a star so that any issues can be addressed!! Best wishes, Viv

“Beautiful apartment, ideal location”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Blairbank Apartment is ideally situated on the waterfront and affords some stunning views. We felt really welcome when we arrived and appreciated so much the small touches such as tea, coffee, milk and even a bottle of wine provided for us! We will definitely be back and can highly recommend this lovely accommodation.

Thank you for your '5-star' comments. As a result of guest feedback we have recently installed a towel radiator in the bathroom so it is now 'cosy' as well as 'quirky'!
