“could have been better”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

location of the cottage was good and it was well furnished and equipped
there was also a games room but this smelt a lot of damp
when we arrived, the cottage smelled quite musty - we wondered whether this was due to pets being in the house from the rental before us. It was quite unpleasant
the other down sides were the lack of power to the showers, and our (double bed) was quite uncomfortable as was the settee. Children seemed happy with their beds

We are very disappointed to read this review. We do allow pets and the previous guests did have a dog but we did not think that any smell was left and it was certainly not evident during the changeover. We consider cleanliness to be our highest priority and take considerable care to avoid any evidence of the previous occupants of the cottage.
We have not had any other negative comments regarding the comfort of the beds and furniture. On the contrary, we have had many saying the opposite.
The games room is a large room completely detached from the cottages situated behind our garage and containing a table tennis table, pool table and table football. There is no unpleasant smell that we can detect. It smells like a games room and is not damp although during this wetter than normal summer the room has not been aired as much as it normally would be. The room is very popular with families and we have never had "complaints" about it before now.

There are two showers in the cottage neither are "power showers" but both are normally fine. One is an electric shower and the other is gravity fed. The electric one may occasionally suffer from fluctuating pressure if the mains pressure varies and being in a rural location this can sometimes happen if short term water demand is high. I have to say however that we have not had any other complaints in this regard.

Again I have to say we were disappointed to read this review. It seems that it is impossible to satisfy everybody but we do try.

We spent a week in Rosa cottage with our two kids age 4 and 13. Although you definitely require a car for this property (it's a good couple of miles even to a small shop!), that's sort of the point. It's very peaceful and the views are lovely. Arran itself is beautiful (though come prepared to have all of the weather on a daily basis) and it was great to come home to such a lovely cottage after a busy time walking or on the beach. The games room was a real bonus on a couple of rainy afternoons and the garden was lovely in the sunshine.
