“Amazing Weekend Birthday Trip”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A group of 8 of us stayed last weekend for a surprise birthday trip for my husband. The house is fantastic and we were lucky enough to have amazing weather all weekend. As the house is so large it never felt crowded. Every room is very comfortable and each of the bedrooms are large bright and airy. The views from the balconies are spectacular. The garden is well maintained and full of colour at this time of year, due to the wonderful weather we spent most of our time in the garden. The kitchen is well equipped and we were very grateful for the integral fridge and freezer as well as a large American stand alone fridge/freezer as it was so warm. We had an amazing trip thank you Ella and we are already planning a return visit next year.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked Ardfyne because it was a large house able to accommodate a large family group in the area to attend our Sons wedding . We were a group aged between 87 and 2 years old and the house had everything to make all ages stay very comfortable . Our 2 year old grand daughter loved the play room and all the toys and teddies. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were convenient for the oldest member of the family. All the rooms are very spacious and easily accommodate a large group without everyone feeling on top of each other. We were very lucky to experience some amazing weather while there and the upstairs lounge and balcony is definitely the place to enjoy a G&T while watching the sun set. The large gardens are ideal for a bbq and get together and an adventure playground for the children. The pontoon at the bottom of the road is also a great place for children and adults to look for huge star fish ,crabs and all sorts of sea life. We also had a meal at the Creggans inn which is a short walk away
Overly food and present staff.
All in all we were more than happy with Ardfyne and would happily return with a group of friends or family.

“Fabulous house with Amazing views”

What an amazing house and location! The house was everything we had expected and more. It was very spacious and perfect for our extended family birthday celebration.
We especially liked the stunning views from the first floor balcony .
We discovered several good restaurants nearby when we didn.t feel like cooking in the well equipped kitchen.
Several of our party love mountain and hill walking so we were in the perfect area for this.

“COULDN'T HAVE CHOSEN A BETTER PLACE TO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THE FAMILY ”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

After looking for somewhere to stay for Christmas in Scotland with my family we came across this beautiful house.
We had great communication with the owners throughout the year after booking with information on the area and things of interest.
We arrived on the 21st December for our week and was instantly blown away by the views and the house.
There was 6 adults and 4 children with our party and there was more than enough room for all of us. The house had a real Christmas tree and hamper present which was lovely touch by the owners.
The house had all up to date mod cons and had plenty of crockery for our big party. The large table in the dinning room which seated 10 was surrounded by the most amazing views which was for ever changing each day with the weather.
I would highly recommend staying at this wonderful property it's a lovely place at Christmas time,peaceful quite and very relaxing.

Just spent the most enjoyable few days at Ardfyne on Loch Fyne and was very impressed by the property. So spacious, modern and clean. Had everything we required and more.The views are spectacular over Loch Fyne especially from the upstairs lounge. The outside space was also great for playing games with the children who also loved the games room. I would ceratainly recommend this property.

“Couldn't have chosen better”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just back today after spending a wonderful 3 days at "Ardfyne". This was a surprise birthday treat for my husband and we couldn't have wished for better. The weather, of corse, was a complete bonus- beautiful which made the views from the lovely decking all the more stunning. Our surprise guests arrived the following day and were overwhelmed by the facilities as everyone had their own bathroom . The kitchen has everything you could wish for including the double oven which was welcomed as we were hosting a meal for 7. The gardens are pretty and extremely well maintained- even the neighbours are welcoming!
There are so many pretty places to visit around the area. Our only disappointment ( which has nothing to do with the house) was our meal at the Creggans Inn which I had booked for my husbands birthday evening. The meal and service were extremely average and I wish we had gone somewhere else as we came across nicer places elsewhere. Overall a wonderful time in an extremely stunning property.
