“A home from home, but with better views”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

For at least the last 5 years, we have spent May half term in these lovely homely apartments, with our daughter, our two dogs and for the past 3 years, my parents.
We stay in a large apartment on the first floor, with two bedrooms, good access and ample room for the 5 of us (plus dogs). And the view from the living room window, across to the mainland, is hard to beat .
Our hosts, Elaine and David are very hands on, and are never far away to make our stay as comfortable as they can, including meeting you at the door on arrival. We could not recommend it highly enough for a "get away from it all" peaceful break, which still has anything else you may need only 5 minutes away in the town - the owners are also a good source of information on local restaurants and sights.
NB Although some apartments are dog friendly, the place is spotless and you won't find any trace of any previous occupants.
We love it here and are just looking for availability for a cheeky weekend break in November.

Liked least: It can be a steep walk back up from the town, but then you need to be high up for the view.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had five lovely days on this island, the apartment we stayed in was lovely and spacious with great views. The apartment was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed.
The owners Elaine and David were so welcoming, I would definitely recommend these apartments.

“Very lovely”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights very nice and clean. Very spacious there was only 2 of us but there was an extra room . Views from the lounge were fantastic overlooking the sea . Uphill so you need a car as also quite a distance from the town . Suited us as we were wanting to travel around . We took a ferry to Dunoon but to be honest it was nicer in Rothsay. Elaine and David were very friendly and welcomed us with a lovely smile and also took time to go over places to go

“Elegant, enticing and excellent”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Had a wee weekend break at this truly beautiful complex. A huge well done to the owners for providing a wonderfully attractive and comfortable apartment, furnished and decorated with a careful eye and consideration. They are warm welcoming and thoughtful hosts and I can't speak highly enough of them. Top all this with the most breath taking of views, far enough from the centre of town for a dark sky but close enough for a home delivery from the local restaurants! And dog friendly too. Top marks.

“Superb location, wonderful apartment, great hosts, you won't find better on Bute”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The Ardencraig apartments are in a beautiful Georgian House with fantastic views across the water to Largs and only a 5 minute drive from the ferry at Rothesay. The apartments are amazingly well equipped with everything from a tv and hair dryer to fresh milk in the fridge and tea and biscuits in the cupboard. The wonderfully friendly and welcoming owners David and Elaine have thought of everything and ensured we had lovely relaxing break on a lovely island that is the perfect place to escape from the stresses of everyday life and work. Can't wait to return next year and will be recommending to all our friends! Thanks for a great value and very enjoyable break.

“Haven of calm”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My daughter and I stayed for 10 days in January 2014 and we had a fabulous time! We were offered a very warm welcome by David and Elaine and the apartments really are ‘home from home’ with everything you could possibly need to make your stay as relaxing as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine, and my daughter enjoyed the choccies! The welcome pack in the apartment offered great suggestions of things to do and where to eat etc, but Elaine and David were happy to answer my questions too. My daughter and I had a fantastically relaxing time and would highly recommend these apartments to anyone looking for a break from the rat race.

“Such a beautiful relaxing place to stay, thoroughly enjoyable and wholly recommended”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I recently travelled to these apartments with my three children and partner, we found the apartments beautiful and the views are absolutely breath taking (the children loved playing with the games left in the apartments). The owners go the extra distance to ensure you have a lovely stay and are very helpful.
