“Extremely comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The cottage is located in a totally quiet street about 2 minutes walk from small harbour. It has all the modern gizmo's you would want inside and the beds are so comfortable. Owners Wullie and Alison are so approachable and nothing is too much bother - even had a phone call from Wullie, who was offshore at the time, about TV controls. All in all a great place to stay.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 4 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What an incredible house. We wanted a weekend away for 4 friends and had looked for a hot tub too. The location is beautiful and the house is stunning. Wonderfully decorated and everything you could want/need. The decor and facilities are impeccable and the welcome pack is unbelievable. Absolutely wonderful and I can wait to recommend it to friends. Thank you so much; we'll be back!

“Fandabidozi!!!”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Failte by name and definitely Failte by nature! Amazing cottage in the most gorgeous coastal area - we were a party of 3 adults and 3 teenagers and this cottage ticked everyone's boxes. The owners could not have been more friendly and welcoming, and their welcome pack was the best we have ever had (and we have stayed in many lovely cottages over the years.) The hot tub was a bonus and we would all definitely, absolutely stay again!

“Best Ever”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Wullie and Alison certainly know how to provide the best for their guests.
A beautiful house, fully equipped with everything you need to have a great holiday.
It's a great feeling when you walk into the house, and your first reaction is wow. Cosy and comfortable, with a luxurious feel throughout.
A very generous welcome basket awaited us.
Loved the village, and the surrounding areas. Great costal walks.
If you do visit Portnockie, try the local fish and chip shop, pub and hotel. All brilliant, and different.
Would certainly visit the area again and stay at Failte.
Many thanks again to Wullie and Alison.

“5 Star Amazing Experience at Failte - Beautiful, Luxurious & Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 16 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed two amazing weeks in Failte and from the minute we walked in the door we were met with a beautiful, warm and welcoming home. Everything was to the highest of standards and oozed quality and comfort. It really was a home away from home! Particularly, the kitchen was impressive in how well equipped it was from the huge range of quality Denby kitchenware to the Nespresso coffee machine and fantastic Gas cooker. Likewise, the bedrooms were beautifully furnished, comfortable and warm, making for a great nights sleep. The outdoor spa tub was an absolute treat! As well as the well equipped outdoor shed containing a great range of cycles, golf clubs and other outdoor activities.

The location of the cottage itself is perfect as it is close to the Harbour, shops and a great fish and chip shop that is definitely worth a visit.

We really could not have asked for more and were absolutely delighted with our stay and experience, 10 out of 10!

From the initial contact onwards, Wullie and Alison could not have been more accommodating and were extremely friendly and helpful in every way. We will definitely be returning to Failte upon our next visit to Porknockie.

Thank you so much Wullie and Alison for making our stay a beautiful and memorable one!

P.S. The welcome pack was a lovely touch!

“Practically perfect in every way!!”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Enjoyed a very relaxing week at this delightful cottage. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay second to none. Highlights were the exceptional welcome pack, the coffee machine and the fluffy robes which make the dash from the back door to the wonderful hot tub less traumatic!! Our teenage son paticularly enjoyed exploring the impressive technology and made great use of his own personal snug upstairs!! Can recommend the local fish and chip shop where you will get one of the best fish suppers I have ever had. Thank you Wullie and Alison for a lovely stay. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your recent stay at Fàilte, its great that others can read first-hand experiences from past guests.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your welcome pack too, it's tailored every time and have had some great feedback on it, the robes were my idea so really pleased you enjoyed using them and the hot -tub as well.

So glad to hear your son enjoyed the snug too, it's a favourite room of ours as well.

For sure the fish and chip shop is very good and gets a mention most times too,

Hope to see you all return again sometime soon, thanks again, Wullie & Alison.
