“I could not recommend this property”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016
3
people found this review helpful

I could not recommend this property for a number of reasons
1. The carpets were covered in dog hair,
2. The bed valance was also covered in dog hair,
3. The furniture was old and tired and needing replaced,
4. As per the 2012 comments the bathroom requires upgrading,
5. Wallpaper was peeling off,
6. The property smells.

Unfortunately I do not have access to attach the photos at present

The property does have lovely views

I delivered the valance and carpet samples to Kingask who sent a cleaner in an attempt to address the problem, however, a vacuum cleaner is inadequate for the job. We requested a move & that was duely arranged, however, a refund would have been more appropriate

Fantastic roomy 2 bedroom/2 bathroom cottage. The twin is an ensuite shower room & the separate bathroom is next to the double. Well equipped cottage. Lovely conservatory & fab wrap around dog safe/child friendly sea view garden, with swings on farm track outside fence. Short walk down safe track to Crail. Had 2 family visit for 1 night & we're provided with a put me up bed, not all company's would do that so eagerly & enthusiastically- great team - thanks.

“Beautiful setting”

person found this review helpful

I've used Kingask Properties before but first time at Meggie Allans. It's beautifully situated in farmland overlooking Crail but close enough to walk into within 5-10 minutes. Very roomy - well thought out living areas, two bathrooms (a must for us with young children) and a beautiful wrap-around, secure garden. Again, perfect for families or those with dogs. The staff at Kingask are extremely professional and helpful - any problems are dealt with quickly and smoothly. Highly recommended.

“Fabulous Cottage with stunning scenery”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

When you look at cottages on rental websites you always feel they have had a bit of poetic licence with the pictures but not in this case. What you see online is what you get. A very well laid our cottage with stunning views from all rooms. The cottage was spotless on arrival and once the log fire was lit then it was like you did not want to venture outside.

Very impressed by both the cottage and Kingask Cottages who made the whole process simple. Would highly recommend This cottage to anyone and we are looking to book again next year.

“Yet another comfortable home from home from Kingkask Cottages”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We had often looked at Meggie Allan's cottage but it was always booked. We'd stayed three times in Cradle Cottage, situated behind Meggie Allan's. The location is perfect with views from the conservatory across to the May Isle. The enclosed garden was ideal for our guide dog puppy. The accommodation is homely and comfortable. Although we didn't need it for heat, we did buy logs and light the fire as the weather was a bit wet and it was nice and cosy inside with the log fire burning and the rain battering against the windows.
Lots of places, with shops, cinemas, restaurants within a reasonable distance to travel to through the day and close enough to eat out at night.
The kitchen is reasonably well appointed and suitable for self catering.
Children would be safe here, playing outside either in the garden or on the adjacent swings.

“Amazing place, great staff - hard to beat for the area.”
Reviewed 6 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Wated to write and say how much we enjoyed our stay at Meggie Allans.The guys at Kingask were so easy to deal with, they couldn't have been more helpful from start to finish. The house itself was fantastic for a short break. Clean, comfortable (really comfy beds and great linen) and cosy. The sea views were amazing (we had some beautiful sunny days when we were there - but you take your chances in October in Scotland!),and lots of walks in to Crail - which is a quaint, lovely town. Great value for the area and time of year. We'll be back.

“Lovely location,very peaceful,lacking in attention to detail in interior.”
Reviewed 24 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This cottage was in a lovely setting and very peaceful with nice views.Unfortunately windows had condensation problems and could do with replacing this affected view out from lounge and dining area.The conservatory was a nice addition to property.Main bathroom needed updating and toilet had problems with flushing as to weak a pressure,so needed to add water each time you used it.The house keeping could be better and have stayed in fresher/cleaner properties,if some of these points where addressed it would be a nice property.Just felt like someone in charge didnt have time to check over team of cleaners etc.On a positive note garden was lovely and well taken care of,grass was mowed while we where there.

Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your custom.
We give all of our properties a small make over before the new season and the windows mentioned have been replaced and some areas of the cottage have been freshly repainted. Our housekeeping staff always endeavor to ensure that the property is kept to the highest standard of cleanliness. We can only apologise that the house did not meet the standards you expected. We hope this will not deter you from using Kingask Country Cottages in the near future.
