“Great location, enough room for the whole family”
Reviewed 22 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The location of this large capacity house is very good for travel around Banffshire. There are not a lot of shops in Gardenstown anymore, but it's pretty easy to get to nearby towns with more options. There had been a landslip (landslide) so access to the harbor was limited during our short stay. The walk to the water is steep. The house has a book with important info renters should read, as it explains the unusual heating system. There was no soap in the bathrooms or facecloths in the linens, but we are used to American style rentals where those are always included. The refrigerator is small, so we were glad we did not bring a lot of perishable groceries.The views from the front of the house are spectacular. We enjoyed our short stay and would stay again. There is a small charge for extra linens if you need to use the sofa bed in the living room.

Management Response

Thank you for your review. The fact is has only 1 shower is well documented. Due to the very large window along the whole of one wall of the downstairs bathroom it is entirely impossible to get a shower in there. The upstairs bathroom does however have a good shower and further bath. We stock utensils and crockery on the basis of an occupancy of 10, however most unfortunately from time to time guests do break things and items disappear! We are looking at how we can improve our inventory control. We are unsure as to how a cupcake case made its way under a bed since the house was thoroughly cleaned and checked. That one must have got away! However I might add that given your comment and your responsibility to leave the house in the state which you found it we were somewhat shocked to find half eaten food on every surface in the kitchen together with uncleaned crockery and cutlery, dirty mugs left on side tables, biscuits left on the sofa etc. We are therefore also actively looking at how we can encourage our guests to tidy up after themselves. We are not running a hotel and in this case guests need to practice what they preach! If only you had left just one cupcake case!
