My husband and I stayed at this lovely flat for the 2nd September break in a row.The owner Katrina is a personal friend and her sense of style and attention to detail make this flat a lovely place to stay, very comfortable and relaxing.There are a couple of good shops nearby, the best being the Coop just down the brae..5 minutes by foot..with everything you need to rustle up a meal and eat it at the corner table, whilst enjoying the view over the water.Comfortable beds and plenty of utensils,candles for atmosphere, dvd and books for rainy days.Our only small comment would be, the doors tend to stick a little, so best to leave them slightly open,particularly if you don't want to wake folks in the next room.However this is just a small thing..I will be back there in 2 weeks, we love it!!

Thanks Rhona so pleased you all enjoyed your stay again second time around. Very valid comment about the doors - ever since I got new carpets laid earlier in the year they've been sticking. I'll get that seen to in the usual round of winter maintenance tasks. Fingers crossed for some dry and bright weather for your October stay!

“The Perfect Rental!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a beautiful flat with the most amazing views over Rothesay Bay. It had absolutely everything that a renter could want. It was spotlessly clean and very well furnished and equipped. The beds were very comfortable with a choice of duvet weights for warmer or colder weather. The Flat was in a very safe area, with a short walk down to the Co-op and the main streets. It is on a hill, but without the hill you wouldn't get the wonderful views so take that into consideration. Katrina was a pleasure to deal with and if we get the chance to return to Rothesay again, this is where we would stay. A very nice vacation all round!

“Great apartment ”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in May 2015

Spent a long weekend at this apartment and we had a great time. The apartment is close to the ferry terminal with outstanding views of the bay. There are plenty of local pubs to visit and there's a Co-op near by for any essentials.

“Amazing apartment”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We have just returned from spending Christmas in this beautiful apartment. The apartment is comfortable , lovely and warm and with everything provided for a great stay. Nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen and the most amazing views from the double aspect windows.
There was always something to see, from the constantly changing sky, ferries coming and going and some deer in the garden below.
We loved the candles provided, a nice touch . We have spent many Christmases in self catering apartments over the last few years, this was by far the best. Thank you .

“Academy Apartments - the best self catering option in Rothesay”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Having read other reviews of the Academy Apartments you might think that they can't be that good......rest assured they are ! We felt at home immediately in the clean and comfortable lounge/kitchen area with those fantastic views. The bedrooms and bathroom maintain the high standard of accommodation. Katrina made the booking process as easy as you could wish to have and quickly responded to our booking request and subsequent questions. All of the little personal touches e.g. availability of tea, coffee, hand wash, books, cd's, dvd's etc made our stay a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing experience and one we will definitely repeat.
