  • "Had a lovely stay in the house with family."

    Photos don't do it justice. Everything you could need for a comfortable self catering holiday. Very well equipped and lots of little extras. Lovely back garden with a patio area and table and chairs which was a nice surprise, even though we didn't really have the weather to use it the kids enjoyed the garden.

  • "The property was extremely clean, very spacious and really comfortable."

    The kitchen was well equipped. Nice bath towels were provided, as were lovely toiletries. The only issue we had was with the boiler. It was intermittently making an extremely loud noise. The first couple of days, it was quite rare and only during the day, but then the issue also occurred during the night - so loud it would wake us up (puzzling, because it would occur even when nobody was using any hot water or water at all). After a couple of disrupted nights, we eventually phoned the owner, who kindly attended very swiftly and tried his best to fix the issue. Having not been able to, he suggested we turn off the boiler altogether overnight so as not to wake us up. Still, we would happily return and stay at that lovely property.

  • "We would happily stay here again very soon or buy it if it ever comes on the market."

    We loved everything about it and the owners should pride themselves on that. We have stayed in over 25 cottages all over Scotland (Mainly Wester Ross) and Tigh na Sith is by far the best.

  • "A great stay and all was very comfortable and straightforward about the booking, arrival and departure."

    I would just ask that a few more cleaning things are supplied, especially if there is an expectation to leave the place cleaned? For example - a mop and washing-up brush/sponge. Surface cleaners were hidden away in the utility room, not under the kitchen sink. Could do with a reading lamp or standing lamp in the living room too! Main lights are very bright. But generally really great place to stay.

  • "The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    There are some lovely beaches to explore in the area although the beach at Aultbea is very stony. We were lucky to have two good cafes in the area The Perfume Place and Ora ha Mara also North by Northwest in Poolewe for occasional lunches but sadly the two local hotels had closed down so if we wanted to dine out in the evening it was a 24mile round trip and most hotels/restaurants were heavily booked, we only managed one evening meal out and that was a disappointment. The local shop in Aultbea is really well stocked however so we certainly didn’t starve. Sadly whilst the rest of the UK was basking in a rare September heatwave it unfortunately didn’t reach us but as we were a party of six friends who hadn’t met up for about six years we didn’t let that dampen our spirits. It’s such a pity that we weren’t there just a week later as I believe the Aurora Borealis gave a spectacular display in the area, that would really have made our holiday special.

  • "The bungalow was ideal for a three generational family group plus dog."

    It was very spacious with a safe wrap around garden. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and far more roomy and modern than our own houses! One or two little niggles: no spare toilet rolls, very few dishwasher tablets and no washing powder at all. Not always supplied I know, but in such an expensive house...... The other design feature that I found strange was the overhead lighting in the master bedroom. No real bedside lights for late night readers. We went and bought a light to plug in! Otherwise, despite minor quibbles, the house was very comfortable and supplied all our needs. The village shop provided all our food needs, the area is well worth exploring and the history of the wartime Russian fleet in the Loch fascinating. Some beautiful beaches nearby, serious mountains for the mountaineer and tracks for cyclists. Large scale maps are useful for exploring. Not far to Poolewe and Gairloch for more eateries and shops and the Inverewe Gardens. We were very lucky with glorious weather and NO midges!!

    It was clean and comfortable, we couldn't have asked for better. The bathrooms were amazing. Of course the area was so beautiful, we are already talking about when we can visit again. If all your cottages are as good as this one you are doing a grand job.

  • "The house is the perfect base to explore the area and a relaxing refuge to come back to at the end of a long, wonderful day on the beach."

    All appliances worked very well and the generous size of the accommodation and the books and games provided meant that you were never bored or short of something to do. The only thing missing was a nice eating place in the village like the hotel which has sadly closed but this is obviously nothing to do with the cottage and how wonderful it was and we found plenty of cafes in the surrounding areas to make up for it. Watching the sunset every evening from the steps beside the hotel is worth the price of the holiday alone. Thank you for a great holiday.

  • "While this cottage was well equipped and very well presented, the description on the Sykes website states that there is a hotel/pub nearby."

    This is not the case, since this hotel closed some weeks ago, so there is no facility for an evening meal in the village. The nearest possibility for a meal after six o'clock is either Poolewe (limited), or Gairloch, which is a 25 mile round trip. One of the main reason for booking this property was the proximity and possibility to enjoy an evening meal without having to cook each evening. Because of this, we decided to curtail our holiday, and returned home after four nights of our seven night holiday. We appreciate that the hotel was open when we made our booking some time ago, but feel we should have been informed about such a vital part of our stay. The fact that the website still states: "guests will appreciate the friendly local facilities with a busy hotel", is completely misleading. We would not have booked this holiday had we known about this situation. As it stands, we have paid for a seven day holiday, but only got the benefit of a four day stay before deciding to leave.

  • "The heating was controlled from a switch behind a locked door."

    The heating was on a timer and was set to go, off at a certain time of day, consequently when we arrived home late afternoon/early evening it was off. we called the owner on the Saturday night, There was difficulty in communication because of accents and conveying the problem. He did come out and opened the door. he said it should be on all the time but reluctantly left the door unlocked. This was just as well as it turned off every day and we had to put it on manual override.

    Recliner chairs were a real bonus and really enjoyed conservatory and garden. Our dog really enjoyed herself too. Loch Ewe is a lovely location and I recommend this bungalow, it was the best place we stayed all holiday and very spacious and well planned. Directions should say that the bungalow is not on the main A road but coming from Poolewe is second turn left to Aultbea and bungalow then on right opposite fire station.

  • "Top-notch accommodation in lovely area."

    Really great home, with everything as advertised - practically perfect for our needs. Spotlessly clean, very well equipped and the welcome pack was a nice touch. Our party consisted of five adults, including two with severe mobility issues, so the accessibility of the accommodation was what attracted us to this specific property. Our only recommendation for the owners would be to install grab rails in the wet rooms. Our two disabled members have asked me to pass this feedback on but otherwise join me in passing on our thanks for an outstanding stay.
