“Amazing house, stunning views”
Reviewed 20 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011
people found this review helpful

Our group of 3 adults and 3 children had the pleasure of staying at Oceanus for one week in August 2011. The house is huge, with beautiful gardens at the back. Unfortunately the weather wasn't beautiful, but the house made up for that. The kitchen was just amazing, and we preferred to eat in there rather than use the huge dinningroom. The 2 main bedrooms were gorgeous, and the beds were extremely comfy and immaculate. It could be slightly cleaner in other places if aimed at the luxury market. However it was also the most well-equiped rental we have stayed in. The views were simply stunning, no wonder the living room has no curtains! It's a 2 minute drive on the edge of Rothesay, due to the weather we never walked, but I would say about a 15 minute walk along the promenade.
Two things on Bute not to be missed are Mount Stuart House which is impressive (tip: you can go to the Visitor Centre only and use the fantastic cafe and childrens play area), and the fantastic food and service at the Kinggarth Hotel on the way to Kilchattan Bay.
All in all, a nice Scottish family break made better by staying at Oceanus. Just shame about the weather, but it is Scotland...
