Elaine and David are a Lovely Couple, Very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is ideal, very comfortable and clean, well looked after. I felt relaxed and very at home, id say they have thought of, and provided for everything. The pictures don't do it enough justice. The views are beautiful too.

My partner & I accompanied by our dogs stayed for 2 nights in the barone apartment. It was very spacious, clean, comfortable & well equipped.
Elaine gave us a very friendly welcome & was very helpful.
The apartments have stunning views & it was lovely & quiet! Great location to unwind but not too far away from the main town. We will definitely be visiting again!

“Beautiful escape from city life.”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Visiting the Isle of Bute for the first time, we booked to stay in Barone. We were greeted by David and Elaine who were very friendly and accommodating, they showed us around the apartment and grounds before leaving us to our stay. The apartment was spacious, clean and to a very high standard, with comfortable beds and sofa, every facility you would need to cook in the kitchen and to relax in the living room.

With breath taking views from the apartment, the Barone apartment was the perfect stay for our trip to the Island. I would recommend staying, and we will definitely be booking to stay again.

“Excellent apartments - a home away from home”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband, son (11 months) and I stayed for three nights at these wonderful apartments. We were based in one of the ground floor one bedroom apartments which was excellent.
The bedroom had a double bed and a single bed and still enough room for a cot (provided by the owners). There were also sofa beds for any other guests who might need to stay.
The bathroom was large with a bath and separate shower. As the apartments use immersion heaters the hot water is very hot.
The living room was exceptional with two sofas and TV. A few wee steps up takes you into the kitchen - fully equipped with cooker, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/drier. There is also a large dining table with chairs. The owner also kindly provided us with a highchair too.
Even the hall is large and there is endless amounts of storage space.
Overall I cannot highly recommend this place enough. Why would you stay in a hotel when you can stay in these beautiful apartments which have lovely views over the water
