Stayed here three nights with two sisters. Best location we have been to so far as is situated yards from the loch. One bedroom comfortable semi with everything you need for a relaxed stay.Has a coin meter but only put three one pound coins in that lasted the three days. Teabags milk and sugar there for our arrival. Goil Inn just across road for eating or drinking out(very handy) Small garden to sit outside to enjoy the views. Post office with limited groceries just a few yards away but holiday village with a well stocked cost cutter a few minutes drive away or decent walk for the more keen. Single track road to and from requires care but not challenging Well worth the money.
Lovely cottage with ideal location - beautiful views over the Loch and within easy reach of the Goil Inn which is lovely for food/drinks & is dog friendly. We parked our car in the car park of this pub which is directly opposite the cottage and had no issues at all. The cottage itself is of older style/decor but it very homely & comefortable. It was very clean and well equipped. The bed is large & comfortable which allowed for us having good nights sleep. The owner emailed all instructions to us before our arrival which was brilliant. Would definitely recommend this cottage for a tranquil & relaxing break away.
Very cosy cottage, views are totally amazing. Very tranquil place to be. Clean with everything there I needed. Excellent shower, very comfy beds. Property owner was very friendly. The reason I gave it a 5 was only as I felt there were some things needing fixed ie DVD/cd player which was disapppointing when I discovered it wasn't working. The goil inn was just across the road to. The food was so good we were in everyday. Well worth a visit definitely.
Stayed here for 3 nights and overall we were happy with our stay.
In terms of location and conveniences this place is really good.
The cottage itself is located in the village of Lochgoilhead and has great views of the loch. It is located across the road from a Restaurant/Pub and is only a 30 second walk from the nearest shop which also has a post office. There is also another shop across the loch which is only a 5 minute drive away which is better stocked and kept us going for food ect... for our entire stay.
There are also 2 walking trails which are located near the cottage, 1 having an entrance point about a minutes walk away and the other trail has an entrance point which is about a 5 minute walk away. There are other walks in the area but we only walked these 2 trails when we stayed.
The best way to describe the cottage is "comfortable but needs an update inside"
Firstly the kitchen does not need an update and only looks like it was fitted a few years ago. So no problems there.
The rest of the cottage is slightly outdated tho but clean. The living room/Dinning room could do with a bit of a revamp in terms of some new furniture and a carpet, and the bathroom is slightly outdated but is clean. The bedroom is not to bad tho but could do with a new carpet as well. The bed was comfortable tho and there was plenty of storage space.
Arrival was straight forward and the owner had kindly left us a pint of milk, some short bread and some tea and coffee which I thought was a nice gesture. There is also BT wifi available free of charge in the cottage which we found really useful as we had no proper signal on our phones. Having free wifi available was a really good added bonus for me and made our stay even more comfortable.
Parking your car is easy and is only a 10 second walk across the road in the restaurant car park. So no issues there.
Electricity is paid for by a metre which you put pound coins in, when we arrived the owner had put a pounds worth of credit for us which was nice of him. The metre is really cheap and over the 3 days we stayed we only put £3 in but probably could have lasted with £2. So this is only a tiny expense.
In terms of price we found the cottage to be the most affordable option for us compared to other available accommodation in the area when we booked. We were happy with what we paid.
The booking process was easy and communication and information provided was to a high standard.
Overall a very comfortable and enjoyable stay and we would return again.
