“Ellery Cottages”
Reviewed 19 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

We have just returned from a week at lochead cottage at Ellery estate lochgilphead. And it was absolutely fabulous. It is a beautiful cottage. Well equipped kitchen and very clean. We don't have any complaints. The view is spectacular. My little dog just loved it. She enjoyed sleeping on her little bed, on the window ledge in the living room. She spent a lot of her time looking out the window. Fabulous garden all fenced of so she could run around. We went with my daughter and her two children. We enjoyed walks and visit to castle Sween and a lot of different areas. We will certainly go back

“Great location but...”
Reviewed 20 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week whilst our Parents rented it for a fortnight. The cottage is in a beautiful location and there is an abundance of wildlife: otters, seals, birds (including sea eagles nearby), deer, badgers and beavers a few miles away. The view from the cottage is stunning too. But I couldn’t give it a higher rating based mostly on comfort and cleanliness. The settees are clean but uncomfortable after a days walking, the beds are uncomfortable and the duvets/pillows in a poor state and there was a packet of wet cigarette butts in the bedside drawer. Some of the kitchen utensils were caked with old food too. Ordinarily I could overlook these things but the cottage was not cheap and to top it off the electricity is charged on top of the rental - £80 something for 2 weeks is very steep considering that the tv was hardly used and we were out nearly every day. You are also expected to clean the cottage in preparation for the next visitors as they don’t have cleaners. This is perhaps why it wasn’t that clean for us. Aside from that, a beautiful location but I have stayed in better places.

Sorry to hear that you weren't completely happy with your stay in Lochead Cottage. All the cottages are checked between guests and I can only apologise as we must have overlooked a couple of things.
All bedding is regularly replaced, and we always use pillow protectors etc - however we have got multiple spares of everything up at the office, so would have happily replaced everything for you immediately had we been aware that there was an issue. We have never had anyone find the sofas uncomfortable and I can only apologise that they were not to your liking.
Electricity is charged at cost price only for the units used (we pay the standing charge) - we have found this to be more eco-friendly, and advice on how to keep the bill very low is printed on the back of the slip (for example, use the back boiler on the fire instead of the immerser). Thank you for the points you have raised - we will look in to each, and hope that you will stay with us again.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 2 October 2018 for a stay in September 2018

My mum and I had a wonderful time here. Stunning, rugged and beautiful location. Spotlessly clean cottage, and when we had to contact the estate when I got my car stuck, the owners were fantastic with their help and kindness. Can't wait to come back for Christmas

“Stunning location and pretty cottage”
Reviewed 29 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We were absolutely delighted at the location of this property as we were surrounded by peace, tranquility and an abundance wildlife. A nature lovers dream! The cottage was well equipped but sadly not the cleanest. The bedding provided (which we had to pay extra for) was stale smelling, the pillows and duvets were badly stained and the sheets were bobbly. I don't know how old these items were but they were desperately in need of replacement. It was asked that the property 'be left as we'd like to find it' but on arrival the shower rims behind the shower doors had not had a good clean in months, the stairs were dusty as was the tv stand, the carpets were old and stained, cobwebs were everywhere and the windows were filthy. If we were to leave the property as we'd like to find it, we'd have had to spend a full day cleaning. We had to pay extra for electricity and had to call the meter reading in at the end of our stay which felt wrong as the cottage was hardly cheap to rent.
If you are looking for a beautiful location whilst staying in a quaint cottage far away from a busy life then there is no doubt that this place wins hands down. Its beautiful. However, if you like fresh, clean smelling bedding then i advise that you take your own. If the cleanliness and decent beds and bedding were sorted this place would get a 5☆ from me as this cottage could be amazing.

All bedding is regularly replaced, and we always use pillow protectors etc - however we have got multiple spares of everything up at the office, so would have happily replaced everything for you immediately had we been aware that there was an issue. The living room carpet was brand new over the winter, and we are unaware of any stains in any of the other rooms - however we will look in to this and shampoo/replace them if necessary.
The windows were done on Friday after you left - apologies that this was not satisfactory during your stay - it is not part of our regular changeover, but we will certainly review the frequency of our window cleaning.

Lochead Cottage is a wonderful and cosy place to be. It was our fifth stay at Ellary and it is always worth to go there all the way from Germany! :-)
