    “This is a wonderfully located property with the most amazing views and brilliant access to the town.”

    Very clean and owner contacted us on arrival to check in with us. We would absolutely stay here again but as previous review said I feel some extra facilities would definitely improve stay. The first floor bedroom is very light at night and although some people may like this maybe some blackout blinds or curtains would help people who prefer it darker to sleep. The lounge area may also benefit from more seating in the unused space behind the settee. There was information about a dishwasher but ...

    Very clean and owner contacted us on arrival to check in with us. We would absolutely stay here again but as previous review said I feel some extra facilities would definitely improve stay. The first floor bedroom is very light at night and although some people may like this maybe some blackout blinds or curtains would help people who prefer it darker to sleep. The lounge area may also benefit from more seating in the unused space behind the settee. There was information about a dishwasher but we were not able to find. Generally perhaps a bit more information on leaving eg where does recycling go and a few more facilities in kitchen eg bread bin, bin liners ect. Had a lovely stay we wish this to constructive as we would definitely stay again. Thanks

    Thank you very much for your constructive feedback, we will absolutely be making some additions in terms of furniture when we’re next up there, this is our first year having spent some time redoing the property with it being up and running so we will make improvements as we go - thank you for the suggestions. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay & would very much welcome you back to Arran House. Unfortunately there hasn’t ever been a dishwasher at the property so I’ll check with the housekeeping team about any info that seems to be there about a dishwasher to find out where that’s come from as this wasn’t in the manuals we wrote at the start of the season. Thank you again for your feedback and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner
