    We had a great stay at Pinetrees. The cottage is very comfortable, clean, well equipped and is in a fantastic location. There is a great view of Loch Fyne from the house and it was really relaxing just to watch the tides either from inside or while sitting on the deck. The location was especially good as there are all the facilities you need within walking distance in the village; shop, cafe serving food and doing take away, pub serving food and garage with a small shop and in the area there are an amazing variety of places to visit and activities on offer. We especially enjoyed our trip to the Isle of Bute and walking the on beautiful beach at Ettrick Bay, our visit to the spa at Portavadie Marina, Inveraray Castle and stunning walks at Pucks Glen and Glen Branter. We also enjoyed the local wildlife and saw deer, red squirrels, seals and a wide variety of bird life. We only managed to a few of the things on offer so will definitely be back, highly recommended!

    Un fortunately the property is very 'tired' looking. Sommelier areas need redecorating, weeds were growing inside small conservatory and a window frame in large conservatory needed repair. The kitchen window could do with a blind. The biggest problem was the fact it was dirty! The bathroom and bedding was clean but not much else. It also smelt of wet dog in both conservatories.

    we thought this looked a lovely cottage but we had issues with the heating not working properley for 2 nights and no hot water only to be told by the owner theres plenty of wood for fire which doesnt really help. The welcome pack wasnt really that just a homemade cake which was lovely but the rest you get in hotels, sachets of sugar, tea, coffee and even milk not quite appropriate really, we ended up leaving before our week was over,

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are always sorry if a guest experiences any problem in our property and will always endeavour to resolve this as quickly as possible. In this instance we had been staying at the house ourselves the previous week and left the property at 10am on the day of our guests arrival. When we left the heating and hot water were working perfectly. The guests arrived after 4 and advised our housekeeper that the heating was not working. Our housekeeper and her husband visited within the hour to find the thermostat had been turned to frost setting and seemingly they were able to get the heating and hot water working again. However we were advised the following day, Sunday, at 8pm that the heating was not working and the boiler was now leaking. The property is in the highlands of Scotland not in an urban area where emergency plumbers are available and as a holiday home we must use a gas safe registered plumber. We spent Sunday evening calling every registered gas safe plumber in the Argyll area and were able to have a plumber at the property and the issues resolved by 10.30 the following morning. In the meantime we had offered the guests unlimited logs for the fire and our housekeeper had dropped off two oil filled radiators. We are always sorry if a guest experiences any issue with our property and will always do our utmost to resolve the issue as quickly as possible as we did in this case. Sadly even with the best maintenance things will occasionally go wrong as with any house. We also advised Cottages.com that we were happy to offer the guest a full refund of our fees if they chose to leave the property as a result of this issue. I do not feel we could have done more but sadly for this guest this was not felt to be sufficient. As the guest indicated our welcome pack consists of a homemade cake, tea, coffee, milk and sugar. As there is a small shop within a two minute walk of the house and a pub serving good food within a ten minute walk we do not feel a more substantial pack is needed. It is just a little something for guests so that on arrival they can relax with a nice hot drink and piece of cake whist they unpack and get their bearings. We generally have lovely feedback from our guests and have many returning guests.

    Regarding local facilities, the cafe and shop just opposite the cottage and pub within walking distance. Lovely views across the loch. The cottage is very comfortable and clean and the welcome tray with cake, tea and coffee was a lovely touch. The bathroom has been refurbed to include a decent shower over the bath. Was a good base for driving to Ardintinney, Benmore Gardens, Inveraray, Dunoon, Oban and ferry to Bute. Hired bikes and cycled along the Crinan canal. Yes would book this cottage again in future :)

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay and agree with you that the cottage is in a great location with lots of lovely things to do in the area.

    Well appointed bungalow very welcoming and cosy the view out of the lounge was to die for . Just needs a bit of tlc but would be happy to stay again

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are glad you enjoyed your stay and especially the view which we also love. We agree that a bit of TLC is needed and are working our way through the jobs that need doing; in the last year we have replaced the bathroom, the oven, the dining chairs, the door to the conservatory and the bedding. Restaining the decking is next on the agenda.
