My wife and I were planning to travel from Yorkshire to Aye to buy some kittens (Yes, a 4.5 hour drive must seem excessive, but there you go!)..
We had seen Appin House on Trip Advisor and decided to book on the strength of the reviews here. We were definitely not disappointed! On arrival we parked on the road outside, our car just fitting into the space provided. There were also plenty of room on their drive where we could have parked, had the road spot been taken. On arrival we rang the bell and were greeted by a sleepy David (He'd been having a well deserved snooze - It was a Saturday afternoon, after all!) who opened the door with a big smile on his face and showed us to our room. It was made absolutely apparent that nothing would be too much trouble.
The room itself was amazing, very spacious, excellent decor that felt as though it had just been decorated and scrupulously clean. The bathroom was the same, it looked very very clean, and as though it had recently been decorated. The shower was absolutely and utterly magnificent. I've never had such a powerful shower. It truly was amazing!
We were asked what we would like for our breakfasts the night before, and given a little card to fill in with our choices.
We then went out to meet our kittens and to find some food - we ate at Lychee's restaurant, which was amazing!
The morning after we awoke early and went downstairs to the breakfast room, and were waited on hand and foot! There's a good selection of breakfast fayre, apart from the hot food which was ordered the night before. There were yoghurts, 4 or 5 different cereals and toast etc.
The full Scottish breakfast was amazing, I can't compliment them enough! (Tip, if you fancy 2 of anything, just put 2 ticks down on the card!) Bacon, Sausage, egg, black pudding, tomato and a tatty scone. Absolutely fantastic, cooked fresh to order. Beautiful!
All in all, an excellent experience, and for the price, far far better than we were expecting!
We can highly recommend every aspect of this marvellous guest house!
