Properties on Holiday Lettings can be sorted/ranked in the following ways:
Orders properties using various data points, in particular: ratings, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, minimum number of nights, and data relating to the interest in/bookings of the property through us, including the advertiser’s rate of providing quotes to travellers who make enquiries. Other factors include price, property capacity, number of photographs, location, amenities, appearance in search results, page views, and the advertiser’s responsiveness and cancellation rate.
Price low to high / high to low
Orders properties based on either (i) the property’s minimum nightly price, if the traveller has searched without dates, or (ii) the average nightly price for the applicable week of the year, if the traveller has input dates.
Orders properties by total number of reviews attached to the listing (highest to lowest), irrespective of average score. Where there is a listing with the same number of reviews as another (or a listing with no reviews), properties are sorted according to their proximity to the searched location.
“Going back again next year” We'd been expecting a lot from Seabank Lodge and we weren't disappointed. We (couple with 2 teenagers and a dog) spent a week there in July. It was considerably more expensive than our usual rentals but I feel it represented value for money as the standards of accommodation and service were so high - great attention to detail but very relaxed and not fussy - the perfect combination for us. When you choose to holiday in the west of Scotland you accept that the weather is likely to be mixed and this was the case for us. The calm and airy living space (with wi-fi for the teenagers - faster than we had at home!) has a huge picture window with amazing views up the loch. We could just sit and watch the weather go past (partly what makes the west of Scotland so beautiful and atmospheric) from the warmth and comfort of a chair with a book and a cup of tea (or glass of wine depending on the time of day!). When the weather was better we climbed some Munros (plenty within striking distance) and then nursed the aching muscles in the hot-tub surveying the hills we had just bagged - amazing! Good cycling around too (the cycle path means you don't have to go on the busy main road) - may take a boat / kayaks next time. Just chilled with books and games when the weather wasn't so good - so relaxing.
House very well equipped to a high standard - lovely bedding/towels, good kitchen stuff and I loved the nespresso machine for the daily caffeine fix. Sandy is very approachable so you know she's there if you have a query but as everything is so well organised we didn't need to see her all week. Hot-tub was (very discretely) checked daily. We've already booked to go back next year and have some friends join us for part of it. It got the unanimous vote as a venue as it was just sooo relaxing.
My only comment for improvement would be an enclosed part of the garden for the dog - we had to keep him on a lead all the time outside (but we have a disobedient dog if there's something more interesting on offer like the neighbour's chickens!). Although it's a very quiet location there are some large lorries going to the fish plant nearby - only a couple of times a day though.
“Great getaway” Really enjoyed our stay at Sleepy Bear Cottage. Five minute drive from Oban, but in a quiet location. Everything you could wish for is here, including a wonderful hot tub. Good communication from owner, which is very reassuring. Only sorry our stay was so short. Would definitely visit again - only for longer!
