Firstly the location is ideal, just 2 minutes or 5 quid in a taxi outside the town.great views of the water too. The apartment itself is very spacious and comfortable and the management are very helpful. All amenities are relatively new .if only the weather had been better
Great apartment, spotless and comfortable, lovely big rooms, comfy beds, kitchen was ideal and had everything we wanted, welcoming meet and great from Elaine, 5 mins into Rothesay, lovely garden views and also really quiet at night - just ideal for us. We snorkelled at Kilchatten Bay and enjoyed fantastic dining at the Kingarth Pub, followed by marsh-mallows over a beach fire at Scalpsie Bay as the night-sky just opened up over our heads - I hope that sounds spectacular, because it really was.
Bute - wonderful memories of our terrific family hols!
This was truly the best self catering apartment we have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean and everything you could possibly want was there. Elaine and David were friendly and welcoming hosts and gave good recommendations for eating out. Harry Haws was our favourite. Really enjoyed our walk on the beach at Ettrick Bay despite the rain. The tearoom has gorgeous cakes! Bute is a lovely island and I can't wait to return.
These apartments truly are fantastic, and are in a beautiful location, with views to die for! The apartments are great, are spotlessly clean and are equipped with everything you will need to have a completely stress free holiday. Elaine and David are the most welcoming,generous hosts, and I can't thank them enough!
There are many hidden gems on bute, including scalpsie bay, ardencraig gardens and ettrick bay to name but a few, there is wildlife in abundance including seals, prolific bird life and deer, and as well as this it is a haven for walkers and cyclists alike!
Ardencraig house is the perfect base to explore this wonderful island, it definitely has a special place in our hearts .
Beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean, wonderful views and location. Thank you Elaine and David for a wonderful stay, weather helped a lot but would have been great even without the warm sunshine!
I have stayed many times over the years in all of the 5 apartments and will keep on coming back. The apartments are always spotless and immaculately clean, the facilities are as good as you'd get at home, ie dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, hoover etc etc. David and Elaine are the perfect hosts and you always find little touches in the apartments eg. chocolates, sweets, milk in the fridge and wine as well as money in the electric meter so the apartments are always warm and toasty in the winter. The views are absolutely stunning and nothing beats waking up to a view of the sea and mountains, even on a rainy day. Palm trees, sightings of Bambi, seals and if you're lucky dolphins, all combine to make Bute a truly magical place to visit for all age groups. I haven't stayed anywhere else on the island and won't unless there's no room at the inn!
