“Lovely relaxing holiday”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

100% service. Was met on arrival by Vicky who was very friendly and welcoming. The apartment was excellently maintained. Very clean warm and comfortable. The view from the front window across the bay is very relaxing and I loved sitting watching the boats passing by. I especially liked the door to the garden from the bedroom. Made it easy to exercise the dog at night. The location was excellent 5 minutes from the shops and harbour but far enough away that it was quiet at night. Lovely 15 minute walk along the promenade to Craigmore Pier Teashop with free WIFI access. Lot of bars nearby for those that enjoy a drink live music at the Struan Bar for music lovers. Zavoronis ice cream on the promenade is very tasty. Good selection of beaches within 20 minutes drive especially Ettrick Bay that does lovely meals and ice cream. Esplanade Hotel on front does good meals as does the Chinese off the front . Overall was a most enjoyable holiday and I would definitely use again.

“Perfect Holiday Property!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed for 5 nights at this property in July-Aug 2014. Vicky met us at the property and gave us a walk round. The flat is absolutely huge and has plenty of room. Contained everything we needed for our stay and is so handy to the town, just a short walk. The views across the bay were wonderful and it is lovely to watch the waverley and the ferries sail by so close. All in all, this flat offers superb value and we will definitely be back. Thanks Vicky

“Comfortable flat with exceptional views perfectly located”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Met by owner Vicky and shown around very helpful, thank you . Very large flat. Comfy beds with exceptional views from lounge. Good value perfectly functional and comfortable flat. All needs are catered for but at a budget. Was pleased to find had an enclosed shared back garden accessed via door from bedroom, this was perfect for our dog. Would have benefited from having 2 front door keys as we travelled with teenagers we didn't always do everything together. Would definately book flat again if we return to Bute
Rothesay was a lovely friendly town and we had a very relaxing week. Lovely walks from the door. Howards way a few doors down offer a good pint with outside patio to enjoy the view in good weather, but just as welcoming on a wet evening inside. Also went to Bute Show, fun sessions in Leisure pool, Mount Stuart

Very large and comfortable flat with views that were amazing, first time mum had been to Bute and enjoyed just sitting at the large bay window looking out watching the world go by. we are both regular visitors to Bute and would recommend staying in this flat. it was good having lovely clean bedding and towels already there and everything that you needed for your stay Vicky has thought of everything ! Great time was had by all.

“Great location, great flat, great value!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

5 of us stayed for 3 nights in this apartment. Vicky met us as arranged and made us feel really welcome. The flat is huge with great views and located within a few minutes walk of the ferry, town and main bus stops. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for affordable, comfortable accomodation in Rothesay.
