“Wonderful appartment”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is one of the best apartments we have stayed in.
The beds are very comfortable and the towels are big and fluffy.
The house was very well appointed and very clean.
The position is lovely overlooking the loch and close to all amenities. It is also centrally positioned for exploring the coast or inland.
Overall it was like a home from home.

“Superb”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

These are the best apartments I have stayed in.Everything you could possibly need,and very modern.Ideal position,five minutes walk to all the shops,pubs restaurants etc.The park and the loch are just out the back,which has a swing park which would be great for children.
Castle Douglas is a lovely little town,with good eating out places.The local people are very friendly.Also a great place to take your dog,as plenty of cafes and pubs allow dogs(unusual in this day and age)
Unfortunately I had to cut my holiday short due to illness,but I shall most certainly return to these beautiful apartments

“Loch side ? Apartments”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Whilst they make no secret of the fact the loch is some distance away from the apartments no mention is made of the children's amusement park directly outside the apartment complex.
The apartment itself was very nice but the beds in particular were very tired and lacked the essential comfort that may have once earned them a five star rating.
The lounge sofas also suffered in the same way.
The first time I sat on the veranda two seat settee it collapsed with a broken rear leg ....not a new break.
We were promised to be met by the owner on arrival to hand us keys to the apartment but with less than 48 hours to go we heard nothing from him. His telephone gave us the disconnected tone and we started to wonder if we had been scammed. It was only when trying his telephone at 22.15 hrs the night before we left for Scotland that we learned he was on holiday in America, and had trouble with his phone,
He then arranged that his mother would meet us with the keys. We never saw her and it was only because we arrived early that we met the apartment cleaners who insisted we kept their keys.
We saw no one from the family at all.....even when we left all we could do was to post the keys through the apartment door.

“Modern quality apartments”
Reviewed 20 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Two great apartments in an ideal location. We found these apartments great value.....they are modern and comfortable and had great views over the loch. There is plenty of parking space and a small garden to sit outside or have a barbecue . They are set up like townhouses with the bedrooms on the bottom and kitchen and living room on the first floor. They are very clean with wooden floors and minimalist decoration. There is also a large balcony which would be great in the summer. There is a welcome pack provided with all the essentials and a home made cake. Loads to do near by ...and make sure you try the fish and chips!

“PERFECT ACCOMADATION”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at the Lochside Apartments for 4 night. The accommodation is 5 star. The views are stunning you can say we all were more than pleased, the attention to detail is great everything you need to enjoy you holiday. Apartmnets are in the town wich is great, there is a micro brewery worth a visit for the men they do tours Mon and Fri £3.50 and last an hour and half good value, and a free drink at the end. perfect location to get out and see other places. kippford is nice, and kirkubright both on the coast and very pretty.
