Self-Catering Reviews

We had a very enjoyable stay in Rose Cottage.. The pictures of the cottage need to be updated as the cottage has been repainted on the outside and the double bedroom in the older part of the cottage has been carpeted which was lovely. Post office/little shop was lovely and they do takeaway food on a Friday night which was very good. We took a day trip to Isle of Bute we caught the ferry from Colintraive about 30 min drive from Rose Cottage. We hired a boat from Loch Goil Cruises £75 for three hour cruise weather was beautiful and you can take your own picnic on board along with your fishing rod. Scenery was beautiful. Benmore botanic gardens were ok we did see red squirrel. Inveraray is a lovely place to visit with its lovely castle. Only thing I would say it would be good if the cottage had stair gates for younger children but apart from that our stay was excellent.

The cottage was fantastic.. Lots of space for our family of 4 (2 adults, children 6&9). Loads of room to spread out. Two TV's, DVD players etc etc. Even had a keyboard which our daughter could practice on. The setting is lovely overlooking loch Fyne, great sun sets. Lots of places to explore. Trips to Gigha and Bute were highlights. The George hotel in Invararie was great. Highly recommend for food and or a drink with cosy and friendly atmosphere.

Nice comfortable cottage clean and with a good welcome from the owner who gives good advice on the area and things/places to go to.. The cottage also has good views of the loch which is just across the road. We used both the local pubs the Creggans for eating the food was very good the other one in the village the Clachan is a small but very friendly bar.

Rose Cottage is beautiful.. It was very roomy for us (4 adults, 1 ten year old and 1 two year old). It was perfect for exploring the area and we were just across from the Loch. The owner made us feel very welcome and helped me with ideas of places to visit and places to eat. We will be coming back next year for a longer stay.

We really loved this great cottage.. Location was perfect, quiet, beach and Loch just across the street, awesome view on the Loch and mountains. It was very spacy (and we were 2 adults and 3 teenage kids!), 2 sitting rooms, one with wood fire, great facilities, garden with BBQ,... Good spot to start expeditions to the nearby region. Absolutely great value !

We had a lovely holiday in Rose Cottage - it was a beautiful location and the cottage was warm and comfortable.. It was great having two living spaces as we were a family group of mixed ages so it allowed the kids to have their own TV room! We would highly recommend this holiday cottage is you are looking for a peaceful getaway. The only thing we'd like to highlight is that we felt some of the kitchen equipment was lacking - in particular there was no cheese grater. Otherwise, all positive.

Fantastic location, lovely owner who checked in with us that everything was going ok.. Lovely views and convenience of a great pub/restaurant 10 mins walk away as well as the local shop/PO/cafe. All in all a great relaxing break

Very nice cottage.. We went as a family and had a couple of friends staying with us. So, it was really nice to have two bathrooms. The owners were very nice. We had a lovely weeke there.

We stayed at Rose Cottage with our teenage Son for a week. The owner was there to welcome us complete with fresh flowers on the table, a bottle of wine and some cream cakes - what a welcome. The cottage was clean, comfortable and exactly what we expected from the website. The cottage worked extremely well for us as a family. Our son stayed in the double room on the older side of the cottage, having his own bathroom and his own living space if he wanted it. The newer part of the cottage was a delight. Comfy seating and plenty of it, the log burner which we lit some evenings. The kitchen if a little dated had everything we needed, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, not that we needed that. Everything was really lovely and fresh and clean. We would highly recommend it to our friends and we are already planning a return visit. It was ideally placed with a nice walk to the pub or up to the bistro for a gorgeous Scottish breakfast! Great location and easy drives to Colintraeve for ferry to Bute, Dunoon, Crinan (gorgeous).

Beautiful idyllic setting with a warm and welcoming greeting from the owner. We didn't feel like we were staying in a holiday let, it felt more like a home from home.

The accommodation was warm and comfortable having everything needed to make for a pleasant stay with lovely views across the Loch. All in all a place you could relax in.

Rose Cottage was lovely. If you have a clear night you will be amazed by the night sky. I would gladly go back to this cottage.

The view from the cottage was lovely, plenty of room inside. The weather for September was brilliant.

Spent a week at Rose Cottage with family and friends. Cottage was excellent, very cosy and ideal for three couples. Having two separate bathrooms was very useful as was the two sitting rooms (especially as we were staying there during the world cup, men in one room and ladies in other!!). Rose cottage is in fact two cottages made into one and overlooks Loch Fyne, it was very well equipped and very clean. The owners were very welcoming and the cookies and wine were a nice touch. The garden was lovely and we were blessed with some beautiful weather and made good use of the BBQ. Would love to come back again and would recommend it to anyone.

Being a party of 6 adults it was great having what was basically 2 separate units for sleeping and 2 bathrooms. The lounge area is very spacious, and having a second sitting room was a bonus. Everything you need is provided and more. A warm welcome from the owner on arrival was nice as was the bottle of wine and biscuits left on dining table (nice touch). The cottage was much larger than expected. Would definitely recommend it. Great holiday all round.

This cottage is in a beautiful location with a lovely view of Loch Fyne. It is very clean and nicely furnished. It's basically 2 cottages joined together by the kitchen, one side it's been kept in the original style, the other side completely modernised. Therein lies a few points I would point out. The older half has a very narrow staircase leading to a family bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom has painted floorboards which are somewhat creaky. The bathroom is new but the door opens to the top of the stairs, as does the bedroom, there is no landing and could be dangerous for young children. There is a mat by the bedroom door but it slips and a child running could slip straight onto the staircase. The modern side of the cottage has a lovely open plan downstairs but the staircase goes upstairs from the living area and is open on one side, so again dangerous for children or an elderly person. The kitchen joins the 2 sides and we stayed there as a couple and found it small, especially for a 3 bedroom home. There are 4 linked fire alarms in the property and as we found out they are extremely loud when they are set off by a bit of cooking! you need to have alarms, but 4 all going off at once was deafening especially when it took 20 minutes to get them to shut up! The blurb describes a garden and it is lovely, however it is not outside the cottage it is outside the neighbouring cottage and is surrounded by a hedge. You therefore could not leave children unattended out there to play because you can't see them from the cottage. One last thing the cottage opens straight onto a parking area and the main road just beyond so again children could not play outside unattended and there are several lorries that seem to use the road and a main route through. As I said it is a lovely location and the owner makes sure it is very clean etc. If you are staying there as a couple or a group of adults it's fine but if you have children or are elderly you need to make sure it would be right for you.

Awaking to a wonderful view over Loch Fynne, literally just yards from the window, spectacular. But even better was the evenings in a large comfortable lounge in front of a beautiful solid fuel burner, ideal way to spend an Autumn evening. The welcome we received from the owner was both warm and welcoming. Unlike some cottages we have stayed in this cottage was exceptionally well equipped.

The cottage is lovely, very comfortable and clean, and much bigger than we expected. The photographs do not do it justice. We would certainly stay again.

We found Rose Cottage to be a comfortable and relaxing base to explore the area. The owners were very friendly and thoughtful.
