  • "Very nice property."

    Excellent for our needs .seeing dolphins from our balcony a bonus.

  • "Very modern in decoration with almost everything needed, a dishwasher would have been good to have."

    The was as all adults staying, is the beds the double/bunk is a nightmare. Twin beds would be better and also an option of main room a zip and link beds would give more opportunities for all adult bookings. Other than that the apartment met our needs, the location was fantastic. The only issues were the main door and front door not the easiest to open, the smell in ground floor landing is horrendous and would have been nice to have information on what is in the locality. Welcome basket a nice touch but a small milk added to this would be good considering tea and coffee was included. We did have an issue with the bathroom tap that was fixed exceptionally quickly.

    Exceptionally clean with all the equipment you would require for a relaxing holiday. The treats in the hamper were very welcome. Lots to see & do in the area. Would love to come again. First class

  • "Superb appartment with great outlook onto the sea."

    Clean and bright. My only negative was I did not like the bed in the second bedroom as I found it claustrophobic and 2 single beds would be more flexible.

  • "Everything perfect for a lovely stay in Banff."

    Lovely apartment with a lovely view, which provided us with the ideal base for the area. Only very minor point was that there was no bread knife, which would have been useful, but is by no means a huge issue! Welcome box was a nice touch. Thanks.

  • "We spent a lovely week in Banff."

    Especially enjoyed the view of the ocean and all the wildlife. We would really like to return. Apartment was great, everything you need for a peaceful holiday. One wee thing we struggled to open the outside key safe, both when we arrived and as we left, probably rusted from being by the sea. Thank you.

    Was spotless on arrival. Welcome basket on arrival (Tea, coffee, Biscuits etc) was much appreciated. Plenty to do in the area to keep two 9 year olds busy for a week !! Definitely well worth the six hour + drive from Preston. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return in the near future. Sidat family Preston

    The apartment was modern, tastefully furnished, spotless and fully equipped. The view from the apartment on the seafront was amazing, even seeing some dolphins, and only 10 mins walk from beautiful clean, sandy beaches. We would absolutely recommend.
