We have been to Portavadie Marina twice, and the restaurant has an excellent menu and service. This time we came and stayed in the beautiful 2 bed apartment 10 ground floor. These apartments are very modern and our appartment had excellent views over the marina. Would highly recommend this place for a quiet getaway.

Stayed: May 2012

We staying in the self catering cottages and they were absolutely beautiful. Views from the front of the cottages are nothing short of amazing, just look right over the Marina and beyond.

Accomodation - Suplime. Could not fault the cottages at all, everything was neat, tidy and clean. No problems whatsoever.

Staff - Brilliant. Reception staff are very helpful and polite. Staff at the "Lodge" restaurant were very polite and service was very efficient. All of the staff members we spoke too and dealt with are an absolute credit to the place.

Food - Superb. We only ate at the "Lodge" and the food was exceptional.

Location - Fantastic. Scenary is phenomenal and you could quite easily sit all day in awe looking around you.

Facilities - Good. Bike hire is available at reception. There isnt too much to do on site but dont let that put you off. Ferries to Tarbert are available but the time of year that we travelled meant the ferry times were on the winter timetables so it wasnt ideal.

We will definitely be going back to stay at Portavadie Marina, it was a great time away with my partner and most definitely recomend anyone who is considering going here.

The appartments are wonderful but.you need to be careful to book one with a balcony or patio that faces south and west.

We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night but did not dine there after that. Service was great but food was generally dissappointing. Not cheap, at around £45 per head and we expeced better.

Given the quality of local food produce and the kitchen in the appartment we enjoyed self catering

Wonderful trips to Tarbert, Inverary, Inver Cottage, Lochgoilhead. Tighnabruaich and a trip on the converted small trawler Morag, from the pier

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind review and comments regarding your stay with us. Whilst I was thrilled to read your high praise of our luxury apartments I must apologise your dining experience was not to our normal standard. As you rightly point out we enjoy an abundant fresh larder from land, sea and air and culinary team are passionate about their produce.

I have of course passed on your comments to the team and hope you will give us another chance on your next visit to restore your faith in our culinary offering.

many thanks

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your kind review. I was delighted you enjoyed takeaway from both of our dining outlets during your stay and particularly pleased we seem to have been a hit with your dog.

I hope you find some time to visit our studio apartments next time and please do let us know so we can book a dog friendly one for you.

best wishes

Spent three nights at Portavadie with my wife and inlaws, had visited the marina before in my boat. No expense has been spared, the appartments are lovely... free wifi, sauna.. every appliance you can think of...

Due to their newness there was some niggles.. the bath stopped draining away.. we reported it and it wasnt fixed by the time we left.. the TV went of and off.. and the internet was intermittant..

It would also have been nice for someone to escort us to the appartment and show us around etc... but we were just given the access card.. and tol where the appt was..

Also as it was off season the main restaurant was not open in the evening.. would have been good to know before we arrived..

Some of the site is stillw ork in progress and as such there was some construction noise and dust.

That said.. the location is superb, the views fantastic, staff very helpful.. I am sure they will get the niggles resolved... food and service in the restaurants was superb.. and prices were reasonable.

The mobile phone signal around the marina is poor.. but if you walk to the top of the hill overlooking the ferry terminal you can get a good one.

Not a lot for kids to do.. so wouldnt recommend it for famillies... excellent for a short romantic break.. or with friends..

A map of where each of the appartments are located would have been useful.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor appartment Take some ice trays.. Take some binoculars / telescope.. Take a trip to Tarbet as a foot passenger.. good bars and restaurants.. bank, shops etc The view from above Tignabruch are fantastic.. Take a trip to Gigha for a day.. ferry to tarbet then drive to Tayloan and take a ferry from there.. great day out

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate that some of the features in your apartment suffered from some teething problems and in particular that we were unable to resolve the issue with the bath prior to you departing. I can confirm this has now been attended as part of our defect period and apologise this took the shine off your experience.

I hope we see you again in the near future.
