“Perfect Place”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Such an amazing stay we had in this place ! The 2-rooms flat is newly renovated with all the modern equipments. The views on the Loch Long from the main window are superb, especially in the evening when the lights begin to bright. It's only 15 minutes of Dunoon - when you can find all the shops you need - but this is certainly one of the most peacful place in the world. Owners and neighbours are very welcoming and flexibles, they don't hesitate to speak with you, to give you advices and useful information. Finally, the place is perfect to discover Cowan, but also some places far away - we went until Arran and Oban.

As usual a perfect stayin Scotland. We hope we will come again very soon ! Many thanks to Stephen for the time he spent explaining us all the necessary things.

“Everything I was hoping for and more.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

First off: it will be hard for any competing offer to match the amazing value of this place at this price. (And yes, I was just visiting and am in no way affiliated with the owner of this property)

I could go on for ages about how much I enjoyed my stay here, but for the sake of this review I will try to keep it brief.

The place is just perfect for everyone who wants to get out of the hustle and bustle of city life. I spent a week here and found everything I could possibly need readily available. The place is not big, but the perfect size for a single traveller or a couple. It is newly refurbished and is fully equipped for cooking, doing your laundry or spending a night relaxing to movies on the netflix library (the place has it's own account).

The location is extremely peaceful and the area is perfect for walking the nearby hills (reasonable footwear recommended). Still it is directly connected to the reliable public transport (the bus stop is JUST outside the door), which also made a daytrip to Oban a breeze. The view on Loch Long is amazing and it is really nice to round off a day out, sitting on the bench across the street at dawn (unless of course it's midge season).

Steve and Sophia are real sweethearts and will always be available if you need anything. (There was an issue with the washing machine and Steve tried to fix it the same night and got a new one the next day). Which by the way ended up not even being necessary since the remarkably friendly neighbour offered to wash my laundry the second she heard about the issue. Overall I was impressed on how nice people were around this area and thoroughly enjoyed the talks that I had with them.

Even trying hard I wouldn't be able to find anything wrong with this place. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for some time off!

Thankyou for your very positive review. We know you explored the local area and further afield in the beautiful Loch Lomond National Park, and hope you will return to Scotland again to enjoy the area. We are especially pleased that the location and facilities of the Old Post Office fulfilled your expectations.
