“Perfect base for exploring Glencoe”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The cottage was clean, plenty spacious enough for the 3 adults in the party and cosy. We did not have to use any of the storage heaters or other heating - we just lit the fire in the evening.
The location is absolutely perfect for hillwalking or exploring the area and is just a short walk from local shops and pubs.

Liked best - the location and the fire.
Liked least - a very minor point... the logs were a bit big (or damp?) and didn't burn very efficiently.

“Quaint and cute cottage, Brilliant views from cottages Windows”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage is lovely and had everything we needed, well situated with brilliant views from the cottage windows, we enjoyed our time and would go again, nice walks to Glenco village and ballachulish only annoying thing was the wood burning stove was in need of repair which we didn't find out till we lit it and set of the fire alarm and smoked out the cottage for two days, and the wifi only worked intermittently ten minutes at a time which annoyed our daughter.
We had a terrific thunder and lightning storm which we sat and watched in the early hours of the morning from the cottage window very atmospheric.
A gem of a place

Thank-you for your feedback.
I arranged for our maintenance man to have a look at the log burner after you left, as you said that you were fine not using it again during your stay. It is now mended.
Its strange about the internet, I will have a look into it. Normally it is fine, but will check it out next time we are staying in the cottage.
Glad you enjoyed the views....and the thunder storm.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The house itself was lovely, it is well equipped with everything you need. There is a large selection of dvd's and games. The information file in the house has a selection of local walks and recommendations of places to go and eat.
The location of the house for us was great. The house is very close to the main road, some may consider this a negative but we didn't notice the traffic and thought it was a positive as you could get to places quickly.
The village was good, a few shops, pub ect all in walking distance.
I would recommend this cottage, and will probably book it again in the future.

Thank-you for your kind review. We agree that the house is close to the main road, but traffic tends to be during 9-6, so usually not when people are staying in the cottage. So in the evening, it doesn't distract from the amazing loch views.
Glad you had an enjoyable stay, and hopefully you will return in the future.

“low hygiene standard”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We arrived to the Stone Cottage no.2 in the evening and cottage seemed tidy but not clean which became more apparent in daylight. Dirty, stained, sticky sink, fridge and floor in the kitchen. We found – spider webs and mold at windows, dirty sinks, hairs and dirt at shower, huge ball of hair and dust and dead flies at the corners, dust on shelves and behind sinks in bedrooms. It seems like cleaner only changed bed linen and made sure kitchenware was cleaned in dishwasher. Cleaner came afternoon surprised what is the issue. Initially she told us that cottage was cleaned but once we showed her what we founded she said that cottage wasn’t ready yet as she didn’t have enough time or notice. She promised to us that she will come next day and she will clean everything. But nobody came next day. We took and sent pictures to owner so she can judge and see the situation although it is difficult to capture it all by camera.I am afraid we have never received any apology or compensation. Owner has planned to visit cottage in 5 weeks to assess herself which was clearly not satisfactory.
We couldn’t recommended this cottage. Hygiene level is the lowest what we have seen so far and noise from the road is considerable.

Thank-you for your comment. I received a phone message from yourself the lunchtime, the day after you checked in. You mentioned that the cottage was not clean and you needed me to come to visit to discuss compensation. I explained that this was not possible as I live a 5 hour drive from the cottage. However I phoned the cleaner and she arrived within 20 minutes of me speaking to you. The cleaner states that she cleaned the areas that you were concerned about, but she was unwilling to clean the kitchen/cooker top as you had your dishes from the previous day and breakfast left out and she felt it was not her place to tidy these up.
I did not hear from you again until I emailed the day before you left to apologise about the start of your stay, but hopefully you were now enjoying your time at the cottage.
You emailed when you left to say that you were not happy and were still looking for compensation. I replied the same day stating that we would look into your pictures/complaint so do not agree with your comment above that you have had no prompt reply.

We have visited the cottages this weekend, and looked into the pictures you sent. I agree the toilet brush is rusty and has been replaced. There is a gap between the external section of the shower and wall where dust had accumulated. The cleaner did clean this for you. We have had a look at this, and reminded the cleaner to check this area more frequently.
Apart from the toilet brush, we were happy with the cleanliness of both of our cottages, as a result we are unable to offer you the compensation you have been demanding.

I am sorry you did not like the cottage or its location, but we have always strived to make it a cosy cottage for our guests and we do have many repeat visitors.
I feel the cleaner coming within 20 minutes to discuss the problems is a quick response which can not be criticised.
