We booked The Old Nunnery for our friends hen weekend. The jacuzzi, pamper sessions and meal (Tom and Linda you were awesome that night) was fantastic. Lorna was wonderful and we all had a really good time. Need to find another event to book again.

“Fantastic!!!”

We stayed for a weekend for a Xmas work do. From the moment we arrived we were very impressed. The house was large, clean and spacious and had the nunnery theme throughout.
There was everything anyone could possibly need and lovely luxury touches such as Molton brown, Clairns and espa toiletries for us to use. The therapists arrived on the Friday night and we were all issued with robes and had hot stone massages followed by plenty of wine and hilarity in the hot tub! The bedrooms were cosy and beds very comfortable. The chef cooked meal on the Saturday was fab and both the chef and waitress were lovely. The views were lovely and the whole weekend was an overwhelming success, so much so we are planning to rebook for next year. The owners who live next door were very helpfu and accommodating throughout. To sum it up the house and our weekend couldn't have been any better.

“Great venue for a hen do!”

We had a hen do weekend at The Old Nunnery over the Halloween weekend. We stayed for 2 nights and there were 17 of us. The rooms were lovely and the house had a cosy feel for its size. There is a beautiful view of the sea and it's even better admiring it from the hot tub! We had a murder mystery dinner on the Saturday night and Linda and Tom came to cook for us as part of the package. They were very accommodating, fitting in with our different 'acts' between courses. The food was also delicious and to a high standard, particularly considering the large number they were cooking for. We had a great weekend and would definitely recommend the venue.

“Fabulous venue for a large family gathering, with wonderful additions to make your stay more enjoyable.”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our brothers 60th birthday. What a wonderful house, spacious rooms, very comfortable beds, lovely modern showers and plenty of them. We were greeted by the lovely Linda who made us feel very welcome and explained everything we needed to know about where everything was and working of central heating and hot tub. We were then introduced to the therapists who performed our spa treatments. We all thoroughly enjoyed these. Only negative was the ladies who had manicures performed discovered that the nail polish lifted off the next day, perhaps a faulty batch.
The hot tub and games room suited all, great idea for a change of things to do. Fabulous location as within easy reach of Largs, if any one wants an ice cream or wander round the shops. On Friday we ordered Chinese carry out which came very quickly even with the large order for 18 people.
On Saturday we were treated to a wonderful 6 course dinner as the celebrations continued. Would certainly recommend this venue for any large group and would love to return in the future.

Many thanks for a 5 star review, so glad you enjoyed. Sorry to see your comments about the manicures. This is not on our treatment list for a variety of reasons (it doesn't go well with hot tub use and it takes considerable drying time). However, we agreed to provide a file and polish for a few guests to accommodate your request and we actually purchased luxury brand products (Leighton Denny and OPI) specially for this one off occasion.

I hope to welcome you back at The Old Nunnery.

“Great House”

I stayed at the Old Nunnery with 20 ladies for my Daughters Hen weekend and it was really comfortable and spotlessly clean. The ages ranged from 18>83 years and everyone had a wonderful time. The hot tub outside is fabulous with comfy robes and flip flops provided for our use, I had recently stayed at a house which had an indoor pool but found that over the weekend nobody used it, however we found at the Old Nunnery the hot tub was never empty right into the wee small hours. On the Saturday we all had 1/2 hour spa treatment and the two ladies who came in were excellent, very professional and knowledgeable in there field. The chef and a waitress came in on the Saturday night and cooked us a lovely six course meal which was served to us and all dishes cleared and washed up before they left. We had to choose a menu to suit everyone however four of the ladies including the bride did not like steak pie and the chef went next door to the owner who gave him four chicken breasts which he cooked to perfection in a peppercorn sauce. While the décor is the house is old, shabby chic I would say it was very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, beds were super comfy too. I would absolutely recommend this house to any large groups looking for a weekend away together whatever the occasion. For the price we paid individually for the full weekend and all the treats in store you could not find better value for money, we all thought it was very reasonable.
