A hidden gem!!
First of all let me start by telling you, I immediately received an email from Eddie about my arrangements and what establishments were available on the Isle. He gave me suggestions for restaurants and things to see once I arrived. When I arrived, Eddie apologized to me because he had to change my room. He gave me an upgrade so he could accommodate another family. Talking about going the extra mile! Then I met Michael (Mike or Mick), such a pleasure. He will cook your breakfast in the morning and he cooks a true Scottish breakfast. It is delicious and he does not disappoint. The rooms are outstanding for a Bed and Breakfast. This may not be a four star hotel but Eddie and Michael make you feel like you are in one. They treat you how they want to be treated and nothing less. And don’t let me forget the dogs. They are a joy to love on when you are away from your own. Sit down and pet them, it therapeutic. Eddie and Michael are very busy running their Bed and Breakfast, but they take the time to sit and talk to you and ensure you are enjoying not only your stay with them, but you are enjoying the Isle of Bute as well. Third story renovations are under way this winter and they are expanding so they can accommodate more visitors. I personally can’t wait to see what they do with the third floor. If you stay anywhere on the Isle of Bute, this is the place to stay!!
