“It was okay, NOT kid friendly!”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

The coach house was a good size for 4-5 people. We came to visit my sister who lives nearby. I am giving this accommodation 3 stars due to false advertising. The site says there's a dryer, one of the reasons we booked here but there is not a dryer and you have to line dry all your clothes. I purposely packed light for our week there expecting to be able to wash and dry all of our clothes. Good thing the weather was good while we stayed cause most times it's overcast and drizzly everyday. How do you dry your clothes, then? We also brought our kids because it was advertised to be good for kids, however there were way too many breakables in the house that I had to put up on high shelves away from my children. The staircase is also very dangerous for kids and my nephew fell down the stairs twice. We had to buy our own toiletries. A few things were available upon arrival but we ran out of toilet paper and trash bags and such and when we asked the owner for extra supplies she said she doesn't provide it and that "everyone who comes expects something different." I think this needs to be clearly advertised that you need to pay for basic supplies. The owner did, however, give us trash bags and some laundry detergent which was nice. The owners child came into our cottage by himself while we had company, which was a little awkward. Owner encouraged my children and nephews to play with her sons toys that she brought out for them and was a bit miffed when some went missing or were damaged. I can't say I blame her but in defense her child was seen throwing many of the same toys around in the yard and into the tall ornamental grass, so how are my children solely to blame? Owner had a party last night we were staying there and one of her guests must have been smoking near the cottage because it was coming in the windows and we had to close them all. It was quite offensive to my pregnant sister. We also were charged for a broken clock radio which I was happy to pay for, however she asked for 70 American dollars to replace it! I have never in my life seen a radio cost that much and that is just absurd. She also passively blamed my children for a broken solar light, but again she has a child and had guests over. Overall the location was good and we enjoyed our stay but my husband and I were a bit perturbed by the advertising as it is not the best for these accommodations. Would recommend for adults, not kids.

Many thanks to this guest for pointing out the error on the website regarding the drying facilities. This has now been amended. There is a local laundrette available for guests to use, if needed, and this is explained in the information pack. I'm sorry this guest felt that the property was not child friendly as we have had many families stay and their kids have loved all the toys and games provided, especially the football table in the cottage itself. It is unfortunate that there were breakages but only one item was charged for. Incidentally the clock radio was a mini stereo system which also incorporated a CD player. It was purchased in the UK not America, so it appears a lot more expensive when you convert into dollars. Furthermore, electrical equipment is cheaper in America. Finally massive apologies to our guests for the inconsiderate nature of my guests. Ordinarily I do not hold parties when there are guests but this was not exactly a festive occasion but to mark the anniversary of my husband's death. They were invited to join us and I am surprised that any concerns were not mentioned on the night when they were socialising with us. It is important to me that guests have an enjoyable experience and we do our best to be accommodating.

“Fantastic cottage for a get away from it all holiday.”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2014

Caberfeidh Coach House was ideal for our family break in Scotland. The cottage was incredibly clean, warm and well kept and the children were able to play safely in the owners' garden. The personal welcome by the Mackenzies meant that we were given great advice on the best spots to visit; the butter, milk and bread was much appreciated after a long journey.The location is ideal as we were able to sledge in Gencoe, picnic on the banks of Loch Lomond and then climb down waterfalls in Puck's Glen. A fantastic holiday!
