schöne Wohnung aber leider mit Mängeln
positiv: schöne Lage und Aussicht auf Skye, viel Platz
negativ: leider in die Jahre gekommen, nicht sehr sauber, Fenster undicht, Warmwasser und W-lan sind Glückssache
wenige Meter zu Fuß an die Küste und vom Balkon aus direkter Blick auf die See.... weit weg von guten Einkaufs- und Aktivitätsmöglichkeiten (hatten wir unterschätzt). Die Duschen funktionieren nur eingeschränkt, der Warmwasserfluss schwnkt sehr stark in der Temperatur. Das Willkommen aber ist sehr warm nd herzlich und die Hilfsbereitschaft groß. Vielen lieben Dank an Lnne und Steve
Great apartment for our group of 6
Everything you need in a holiday cottage in this part of the world, with the added extra of a pool.
Friendly helpful hosts, cosy apartment, well equipped kitchen. Central heating, wood stove & loads of hot water - all essential at the end of rainy days. The kids loved the pool - though the adults were less keen on the cooler temperature. :-)
It was an absolute delight meeting you all! Sorry about the pool temperature, but we were struggling for 4 days with the replacement pump - thankfully it is up and running now and the temperatures are much improved.
The property was in a lovely location however, we were disappointed with various aspects.
When you arrive, it looks like you are pulling into a junk yard. The property is very scruffy on the outside, cars and boats in the drive and the area leading to the pool is overgrown and scruffy with a broken down washing line in the garden. I can see why the only picture on the website of the outside is the pool.
Inside could do with a really good clean. We had to wipe down the front of the washing machine and dishwasher which were covered in various tea and food splashes and give the cooker knobs a good clean as they were very grubby.
The carpet in the lounge had a lot of small animal hairs over it, don’t know if someone had been staying there with cats? The iron was dangerous and had seen better days. The plug was broken and had a lump missing on top exposing the pin. The iron itself was also cracked on top.
On our first evening there after a very long journey, on trying to have a shower, we couldn’t get any water out the shower in the main bathroom. Tried the shower in the twin room and the water just came out scalding hot. We then had to find the owner who told us we needed to turn the hot tap on the basin on first to make the pump kick in then run the shower, then turn the basin tap off!! This worked thankfully but is clearly not right and why weren’t we told this on arrival before we started trying to have showers? Surely this should be fixed?
The remote for the TV does not work, the patio doors are extremely difficult to unlock, I wouldn’t want to try and get out of them in an emergency! Neither of the velux windows in the lounge open or the window in the small double.
We were unable to have any control over the heating so we either had to have it on or off. Some days were warm and sunny so we really didn’t need the heating on so much, only in the evening. Other days were cold. We went out on the first full day there and came home cold and tired to find the owner had switched the heating off and the place was cold. We had to go and find him to get it switched back on.
We were only give one hand towel and one bath towel each for the week with no offer of replacements. We couldn’t wash them as there was no dryer even though the details state there is a washer/dryer.
Overall very disappointing as this could be a wonderful place to stay with a little money spent on it and a little more effort on the maintenance and cleaning.
Brilliant hideaway in the Highlands
This was such a great location and allowed us to explore the mountains and then recover in the day. We had help from our host when we were in need of something on our first night.
I think for the price, it is great.
Lovely people, great guests - hope to see them again sometime.
Close...but no cigar
Spacious, lots of privacy as each room had its own bathroom, plenty of kitchen utilities however...mattresses were a bit dated, you could feel springs, lacked consistency when it came to central heating, however electrical portable heaters helped to resolve the issue, banging noise each night outside the window in one of the bedrooms (first on the left), which made my husband to sleep with earphones in. Yes the weather was quite windy, but...
Make sure you don`t use up all hot water whilst taking a bath, doing the washing or running a dishwasher at the same time, therefore make the most of electrical showers provided, great pressure and hot water.
Bit let down by swimming pool, as temperature inside was...challenging.
Thanks for your review, sorry you didn't find the mattresses comfortable as the twin beds have just had new replacements - they were obviously good enough for the children to bounce on and break the slats on the bed which we have had to replace. As you say the heaters are there for when you are feeling a bit chilly but once we realised that you were staying in a lot the heating was running all the time even though the front door was often left wide open and when we enquired if the heating was OK we got a thumbs up. I am sorry about the noise in the back bedroom but we were experiencing very high north west coast winds, however we will have the rattles checked and fixed..
Dishwasher is cold fill so doesn't effect the hot water, but the system has difficulty coping with several people filling baths at the same time. Not sure what you mean by the temp being challenging in the pool as the water temp is around 30 degrees - the enclosure may be cold but you have to allow for the time of the year. Hope this answers all of your points.
