We keep returning to portuairk the scenery is stunning and the whole experience is so restful. We loved the walks on the beach collecting shells and enjoyed the wildlife. We plan to return next year .

“Perfect location - Accomodation ???”
Reviewed 26 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017
people found this review helpful

In brief...we stayed here in September. The location is perfect with views directly over the lirtle bay and out to sea. The area is beautiful with wildlife galore.
The Bungalow......The building itself is good with a nice layout. There is tv but expect mixed reception...the weather can play havoc. We had to unplug the Sky box (freeview channels only) to reboot to make it work, but that's easily sorted.
The kitchen and bathroom are nicely updated. The main bed is past its best and only a double but was comfortable nonetheless.
The heating works well (ignore the old storage heaters, the panel heaters work fine); and the little multi fuel stove is great.
Fuel is provided but only for the first few days (the coal bunker was empty but there were kogs and kindling).

There was no welcome at all and no contact whatsoever after we arrived or since. A review I posted has disappeared via an updated entry by Steading Holidays..a very sneaky way of removing a less than favourable review.
The information provided in the bungalow was outdated badly and not even left out in sight. There was no info on how to operate the bathroom underfoor heating or as to where the switch for the towel rail is (above bathroom door with fuse boxes).
The designated house manager although helpful lives on the other side of Scotland and is therefore hardly on hand to provide any assistance with such issues that would otherwise be easily resolved.
Worst of all.....the setees and chair are old, worn, lacking cushioning and sprung. They were very uncomfortable and made relaxing indoors almost impoosible.

So come on Steading Holidays...you can take my money but clearly not my feedback. So be honest enough to let this review stand this time. Circumventing reviews you don't like by reposting your page is dishonest.
Your bungalow is close to being very good indeed so spend that money I paid you and buy a half decent setee and chairs, update your info in the cottage, especially regarding local services,and you won't need to repost your page because you will get good reviews.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.
