“A very nice apartment”
Reviewed November 26, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

I couldn't fault this apartment. It was very comfortable, spacious and warm, which was appreciated in a wet November stay! The views from the apartment are beautiful and change almost by the minute. The owners were friendly and helpful too. I would definitely return.

Thank you for your '5 star' review of Blairbank Apartment. I'm so pleased that you found the apartment comfortable but am sorry that the weather was so wet and windy for you! Fortunately your previous visits to Bute will have convinced you that it can be very beautiful! Best wishes, Viv

“Excellent standard apartment with sea view”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The apartment layout was quirky but delightful. Very well appointed with everything you would ever need, including washer, tumble dryer and dishwasher. High standard of cleanliness and quality. Beds comfy and level of heating could be easily adjusted. Lots of little extras like board games in the cupboards, area leaflets, wine and tea/coffee & milk on arrival.

Fantastic sea view and well placed with an easy walk into town. Parking outside the house was on street but never a problem and always immediately outside the property front gate.

Contact with owners, who live above the apartment, was excellent and not intrusive. We felt it was a very private and homely place to stay. Viv was lovely and I was confident she would have resolved any issues immediately, if there had been any.

Over all a perfect stay for when visiting family on the island.

Thank you for your excellent review of Blairbank Apartment. I'm so pleased that everything was satisfactory and you enjoyed your time here. It was good to make the links with your family on the island too!
We never tire of the views either - and its great to be a short walk from the town centre yet very quiet and private.
Best wishes, Viv

On arrival the owner showed us around the apartment and gave us information on buses etc. The apartment itself was excellent, clean, tidy and well equipped. Superb location. Would highly recommend staying here.

Well equipped and decorated apartment in a prime location - stunning views and
close to the town. The owners were most friendly and helpful.
Mount Stuart House well worth a visit - the staff were most helpful with our elderly
mother who arrived with a broken foot. They provided us with close up parking,
lifts, and wheelchair and she was able to view the entire building.
A summer trip on The paddle steamer "Waverley" should not be missed.

Thank you for your splendid review of Blairbank Apartment and Bute more generally. It was a pleasure to host you and your wife and your mother as part of her 100-year birthday celebrations. A remarkable lady! I'm so pleased that she was able to see Mount Stuart House and experience such great care.

Thank you for your fantastic review of Blairbank Apartment and of your stay on Bute. It really is a beautiful island so easily accessed from Glasgow in 1.5 hrs including the ferry crossing! As you say, Mount Stuart House is a real treasure. Best wishes, Viv
