    We have been to a lot of holiday cottages but this is the best equipped one we have been to. It had everything we could possibly have needed. Lovely and warm, comfortable and very peaceful. Just a few minutes walk into the lovely town centre. Thanks to Jane for welcoming us on our arrival. Look forward to our next visit. Em & Anne

  • "Cutlery drawer and items filthy Cupboard under sink filthy, plus empty bottles, soap powder box and dirty cloths left scattered underneath Oven dirty and greasy Toilet brushes filthy one left with feces on Bath mat dirty, mouldy all over Windows dirty Patio unkept, we had to wed between cracks, dead plant pots, artificial balls left on floor (couldn’t be hung as chains were rusty and broken There is no view from patio to estuary, view is the car park Noise from workmen (we were informed less than 24 hours before going, I asked for a refund, the owners said it would up to Sykes, couldn’t get through so we felt we had to go or lose our money, we were told they should be finished the day after we arrived, they were still there after we left, constant noise from drills and scaffolding erected outside patio, felt intrusivel and didn’t want to sit outside on it) Sykes later said it was up to owners."

    When we complained owners response was sorry about inconvenience and mess you found but hope you enjoyed largs and the surrounding area. Asked for refund or at least 50 percent. They eventually repaid 125 (no refund really considering we’d had enough and left the day before we were due to come home) Bad response from owners, but why would they care they live abroad. Have photos and emails to back up statement made. Would love to post them. At least hopefully the holidaymakers due in after us would not have to find what we did and company and owners cleaned up,their act. By the way the company they pay to clean only have an hour and half spot. That’s not long enough to do a thorough clean (they’re comment) not mine

  • "Flat itself was ideal."

    Couldn’t fault cleanliness and well equipped. However the one big thing that let it down was temperature of hot water which resulted in guest scalding hand so badly that it has so far resulted in a 2 night hospital stay. Jane was informed of this who told me that plumbing had recently been checked and did offer to pick us up from hospital in Greenock, also further messages to check on guest. I feel that there should be signs up warning of possible high temperature coming from taps. Jane an absolute gem to the owners. Great communication and local knowledge.

  • "Cumbrae view was a marvelous find, excellent location, very clean and everything you could wish for."

    Would recommend it to anyone. Short walk from Largs centre. Jane was so helpful and friendly when she showed us round. There were a couple of hiccups we did a load in the washer but couldn't get the tumble dryer programme to work. Also car parking was hit and miss, it being a very small car park. On the Thursday we all went out in our daughters car for the first time it had moved that week and noticed a dent in the drivers side wheel arch. It had got to have happened on the car park. She had parked in the last bay on the right-hand side. On our last day we noticed another car belonging to a nurse visiting flats also had a dent in exactly the same place. If you can avoid that parking bay. Having said all that we would go back there in future

    Thank you for your very positive feedback following your stay at Cumbrae View. We apologize for the lack of allocated off road parking; it is very much first come, first saved, and are also very sorry to hear about the damage to your daughter's car whilst it was parked on the complex. There is plenty of free parking on the road just outside the complex boundary a short distance away. Thanks also for mentioning the assistance that Jane, our 'meet and greet' person, brings to arriving guests. She is very polite, helpful and a font of knowledge about the area and its amenities.
