“Great location for touring central Scotland”

person found this review helpful

The apartment is in a great location right in the centre of town. We were visiting family and it was perfect for our stay. The lounge/dining room is really cosy with lovely heather tweed sofas and highland accessories. The flat has everything you could possibly need but if you feel lazy there is a lovely coffee shop/ tea room almost opposite the apartment, perfect for morning cappuccino or even a full breakfast if you don't feel like cooking, along with local restaurant and pubs for evening meals. Lawrence, the owner, is so helpful and considerate. He kept in touch throughout; from the point of booking, to checking in and even getting in touch afterwards to ensure everything was ok.

Lovely property with all needs catered for and very well equipped. Excellent communication from Lawrence the owner. Decor older style but this did give it a homely feel! Being up a flight of stairs from the street made it a little tricky as a parent ali e with two small children and a dog ur this wouldn't be an issue for most people. Excellent location, beautiful walks and very central to visit other places. Would recommend

Great apartment. Perfect location in the town for all amenities. This is the second time i have stayed here and it truly does feel like a home away from home! Will be back again soon!

“A family sort of place...”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great location in main street above the "Higgledy Piggledy" gift store and a pet shop. We had a very comfortable stay in this large old stone-built row house. Good soundproofing, so no street noise. Great view to the activity in the street. Pub across the road does great Karaoke. Supermarket a few shops away. Easy street parking out the back, and in front - if you are lucky. The apartment floor plan is curious. The kitchen is overly stocked with old crockery, glasses and cook ware and would benefit from a good clean out. The apartment gives the impression that the owners have just packed a few things up and "moved out". It has many quite personal items still around - books, craft work... The apartment was very comfortable and we enjoyed staying there, but on our first entry, it smelt stuffy. It could do with a deep spring clean, but was otherwise tidy and well -presented in an eclectic family sort of way.

“Cosy bolt hole with all you need within five minutes.”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were visiting family in nearby Alloa and the flat was ideally situated. Lawrence the owner met us on arrival and was very helpful and friendly.
The flat is very well equipped and has lots of extras especially for families like wifi, wii games system , DVD s board games etc. We appreciated the generous size of TV screen as my husband is partially sighted.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds are comfy. The lounge and dining area is beautifully furnished.
Our only problem was the outside steps up to the flat, they are fine for fit people but my husband was very nervous especially with his sight problems. There is a good solid handrail and it was no problem for me.
The flat is on the Main Street in Alva so plenty of shops and food outlets. Parking was a problem sometimes not a good idea to park at the back unless you are up and out early in the mornings as the delivery vans and lorries back up for the shops and can block the cars in. We parked on the road and moved the car nearer later in the evening .
I would recommend the flat.
