“perfect week spent in the old post office in Blairmore.”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a great stay at the old post office.
We can only think of positive things to say.
From the first meeting with Stephen & Sylvia, who were there to meet us, they were very helpful and a lovely couple, very friendly and explained everything to us.
The Studio is lovely, clean, warm and very comfortable, everything you could wish for for a peaceful holiday.
The view is to die for, couldn`t be nearer the loch, we spent most of the time we were in the studio sitting on the window seat watching the ever changing scenes on the loch.
Would we stay there again? yes!!
We are already planning to go again next year.

Thankyou both for taking the time to post this lovely review. We are so pleased to welcome guests to Blairmore and know that they have enjoyed their holiday and the accommodation. We can take no credit for the wonderful views but we too still appreciate the scenery and are pleased others do too.
We send best wishes & we look forward to seeing you again next year... maybe there will be another cruise ship anchored in the Holy Loch!

“Perfect little hideaway”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

My partner and I stayed at The Old Post Office in Blairmore for a week and found it to be a perfect little base. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need (all utensils, kitchen appliances, washing machine, Netflix for those rainy days!). It really did feel like a home for the week. Steve and Sylvia were absolutely fantastic hosts (thank you both very much) being both friendly and extremely helpful without being at all overbearing. I would highly recommend The Old Post Office to anyone and we look forward to returning one day.

“Fantastic accommodation with spectacular views”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Really pleased to have found this little gem. Views from the Old Post Office are spectacular from dawn to dusk. Accommodation was clean, comfortable and homely. Great area for exploring the Cowal peninsula. Local people were very friendly and helpful, especially May our neighbour for the week, Stephen and Sylvia the owners who are a very welcoming couple and last but not least Sammy the seal who frequented the pier across from the Old Post Office and provided us with some excellent photographs.

“Excellant Wee Bolthole”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Be in no doubt, this is a great wee place to stay in, although it is quite compact there is enough room for two people with cycling kit (and cycles) to use as a base to explore the surrounding area (Argyll and Bute), comfortably (singles & couples).
Through-out the property (kitchen/bathroom/living/sleeping areas) the facilities are modern, clean, and user friendly. The location (opposite the pier head) has to be mentioned, both during the day and night you get great views from the living room window which looks right across the lochs, where watching ferries, cargo boats and even the odd submarine slowly cruise past your window can be quite relaxing whilst eating your lunch!.
The owners, Stephen and Sylvia, were present upon our arrival, showed us around the property advising on how the shower/heating/kitchen appliances etc. all worked, which eased us into a great week's holiday here at the Old Post Office, Blairmore. I must also mention the neighbours as well, who came to our rescue in finding a local man who could fix an issue with one of the mountain bikes. So instead of an hour+ round trip to the local bike shop we drove 4 miles up the road where it was fixed almost instantly, and in a friendly and helpful way!.
Best way to sum up this place?, go and stay there, see for yourself, I don't think you will be disappointed.
