“Recharged the Batteries here once more”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great time had by us both on another trip to Kames and Ardencraig. The walk past the town and along the path towards Loch Riddon is a fave and ideal to set you up for a trip the the excellent Kames Hotel. The local shinty team had been successful the night before so it was more boisterous than expected and great fun.

House has been fitted with an authentic looking modern fire which is idea lfor warming up after a trip out. Very comfortable generally and kitchen handy for preparing some breakfast - we cooked some dinner last time but only here for a few night this time so we just used the very close hotel - only a ten or so minute walk away then a twenty minute or so stumble back (they do excellent beers from nearby Inveraray on draught.)

Ideal place to test our new chess set - great views to be had from the bay window table over the bay below while I was winning..

Looking forward to going back at some point !

“Nice apartment in a fantastic setting”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment can comfortably hold two & maybe two children but could start to get crowded if more than two adults. That said, the apartment is in good repair & decor, the facilities were adequate and the owner has gone to great lengths to cover all bases for his clients; this includes videos, books & games for those rainy days, and an OS map for those who want to explore.
This apartment's biggest selling point though is the fantastic view across the Kyles of Bute from the front bay window. Just open one of the sash windows, set your camera/phone on record and do a panoramic sweep of the view which will be the envy of your friends & family.

“Stunning location, tired looking apartment”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

I agree with other reviewers that the apartment is in a stunning location, with the beach just outside the door. The village of Kames is great, with a hotel, and Duncans shop about a 5 minute walk away.
And so to the apartment itself. It is situated at the top of two unwelcoming flights of stairs -the handrail at the top of the stairs needs immediate repair as it is very loose. The flat is well-equipped with expected items. However, the flat is very small, and I feel that it could not accommodate any more than 2 adults- in fact there are only two chairs at the dining table. Some of the windows have been painted shut, others were stuck open meaning the flat was quite drafty - and with only one heater in the whole apartment, this was somewhat uncomfortable. The bed had minimal covering and the mattress could do with being replaced. There is a second bed which would be suitable for a child only. The shower room/toilet is small, although the shower itself is a good size.
However, If location is more important to you than the actual living accommodation, this is the place for you.

Thank you for taking time to provide review. As per the description the apartment is a traditional Victorian single bedroom apartment of 29sqm, suitable for couples and families with young children. The fold down sofa bed in the living room is a double, although slightly narrower than a standard double bed, and the single bed in the traditional recess space off the living room is only suitable for children up to the height of 1.2m. As also mentioned in the description, the apartment provides 5 dining chairs, 2 at the lounge table and a further 3 folding. The changeover person has been providing a summer double quilt for all recent guests due to the warm weather. 2 additional warmer double quilts are also provided should the weather turn cold. The largest of the 3 living room bay windows in the living room is secured shut for child safety reasons. Of the 6 vertical windows in the apartment, the remaining 5 all provide opening bottom sashes for ventilation and emergency egress and all open and close easily. There is also a velux window in the bathroom, which provides trickle ventilation and can also be opened. We do try and provide an honest reflection of the accommodation provided via photographs and text, which we hope is reflected in the price of the tariff.

“Perfect weekend getaway”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed in this charming apartment over 3 nights in September, and can't wait to go back. Situated right on the beach front, with stunning views over the Kyles of Bute, the apartment is a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Cowal Peninsula, either by bicycle or by car. After spending the day out walking or cycling, a 5 minute walk to the local Kames hotel is a must for refreshments! The local store provides a really good range of Scottish produce, with more choice than can usually be expected of a village shop. The apartment itself is cosy, containing a well equipped kitchen and living room. Overall, it's an ideal location for a short relaxing break.
