The accommodation was warm and comfortable having everything needed to make for a pleasant stay with lovely views across the Loch. All in all a place you could relax in.

Beautiful idyllic setting with a warm and welcoming greeting from the owner. We didn't feel like we were staying in a holiday let, it felt more like a home from home.

Rose Cottage was lovely. If you have a clear night you will be amazed by the night sky. I would gladly go back to this cottage.

Being a party of 6 adults it was great having what was basically 2 separate units for sleeping and 2 bathrooms. The lounge area is very spacious, and having a second sitting room was a bonus. Everything you need is provided and more. A warm welcome from the owner on arrival was nice as was the bottle of wine and biscuits left on dining table (nice touch). The cottage was much larger than expected. Would definitely recommend it. Great holiday all round.

Awaking to a wonderful view over Loch Fynne, literally just yards from the window, spectacular. But even better was the evenings in a large comfortable lounge in front of a beautiful solid fuel burner, ideal way to spend an Autumn evening. The welcome we received from the owner was both warm and welcoming. Unlike some cottages we have stayed in this cottage was exceptionally well equipped.

We stayed at Rose Cottage with our teenage Son for a week. The owner was there to welcome us complete with fresh flowers on the table, a bottle of wine and some cream cakes - what a welcome. The cottage was clean, comfortable and exactly what we expected from the website. The cottage worked extremely well for us as a family. Our son stayed in the double room on the older side of the cottage, having his own bathroom and his own living space if he wanted it. The newer part of the cottage was a delight. Comfy seating and plenty of it, the log burner which we lit some evenings. The kitchen if a little dated had everything we needed, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, not that we needed that. Everything was really lovely and fresh and clean. We would highly recommend it to our friends and we are already planning a return visit. It was ideally placed with a nice walk to the pub or up to the bistro for a gorgeous Scottish breakfast! Great location and easy drives to Colintraeve for ferry to Bute, Dunoon, Crinan (gorgeous).

We found Rose Cottage to be a comfortable and relaxing base to explore the area. The owners were very friendly and thoughtful.

The cottage is lovely, very comfortable and clean, and much bigger than we expected. The photographs do not do it justice. We would certainly stay again.

Spent a week at Rose Cottage with family and friends. Cottage was excellent, very cosy and ideal for three couples. Having two separate bathrooms was very useful as was the two sitting rooms (especially as we were staying there during the world cup, men in one room and ladies in other!!). Rose cottage is in fact two cottages made into one and overlooks Loch Fyne, it was very well equipped and very clean. The owners were very welcoming and the cookies and wine were a nice touch. The garden was lovely and we were blessed with some beautiful weather and made good use of the BBQ. Would love to come back again and would recommend it to anyone.

This cottage is in a beautiful location with a lovely view of Loch Fyne. It is very clean and nicely furnished. It's basically 2 cottages joined together by the kitchen, one side it's been kept in the original style, the other side completely modernised. Therein lies a few points I would point out. The older half has a very narrow staircase leading to a family bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom has painted floorboards which are somewhat creaky. The bathroom is new but the door opens to the top of the stairs, as does the bedroom, there is no landing and could be dangerous for young children. There is a mat by the bedroom door but it slips and a child running could slip straight onto the staircase. The modern side of the cottage has a lovely open plan downstairs but the staircase goes upstairs from the living area and is open on one side, so again dangerous for children or an elderly person. The kitchen joins the 2 sides and we stayed there as a couple and found it small, especially for a 3 bedroom home. There are 4 linked fire alarms in the property and as we found out they are extremely loud when they are set off by a bit of cooking! you need to have alarms, but 4 all going off at once was deafening especially when it took 20 minutes to get them to shut up! The blurb describes a garden and it is lovely, however it is not outside the cottage it is outside the neighbouring cottage and is surrounded by a hedge. You therefore could not leave children unattended out there to play because you can't see them from the cottage. One last thing the cottage opens straight onto a parking area and the main road just beyond so again children could not play outside unattended and there are several lorries that seem to use the road and a main route through. As I said it is a lovely location and the owner makes sure it is very clean etc. If you are staying there as a couple or a group of adults it's fine but if you have children or are elderly you need to make sure it would be right for you.
