“Absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at the Lochside Apartment for a long weekend whilst going to a wedding in the area. The apartment is beautiful! Fully equipped with everything needed for a luxurious stay. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything; microwave, dishwasher, halogen hob, George Foreman grill, and all the utensils you could ever need. The view is stunning from the balcony. A lovely touch was the fresh bread and chocolate cake on our arrival. We would definitely recommend this lovely apartment to everyone. Truly 5 stars!!

“Every holiday apartment should be like this; we could not fault one thing!”
Reviewed 10 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

First class service from start to finish by the owners. Payment was very easy (we did it thru direct banking). Directions to the property were good; Castle Douglas is a lovely wee town and there are lots of other places nearby to visit. The apartment was very comfortable and luxurious. lovely outlook over the park and loch. Good, private parking area. Facilities in the apartment first class; the owner had thought of everything! We did not need to leave at a specific time on the departure day as the owners didn't have anyone coming to stay that night. that was great as we didn't have the usual rush to leave! I would certainly recommend without a doubt. Book your stay here - you'll love it!

“A Lovely Lochside Retreat”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My partner and i had great pleasure in staying at the Lochside Apartments in Castle Douglas for 3 Nights.

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival by Sarah who showed us around, explained how things worked and even provided us with a hamper of locally produced goods to enjoy during our stay and a fresh Chocolate & Cream Cake waiting for us on the dining table :)

The apartments are of exceptional quality with very high attention to detail paid in all areas. The rooms were comfortable and warm, spotlessly clean and had all the amenities required for a short or long stay. It is also very secure.

The surrounding area is very pleasant with a small town with unique shops and outlets, lovely cafes and fish and chip shops etc. Travelling further afield there are numerous beaches to explore and the opportunity for walks and outdoor pursuits.

I would happily recommend the Lochside Apartments to anyone who wants a high quality self-catering break in Southern Scotland. I really cannot fault it!

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Beautifully located, decorated and presented accommodation. Easy access to all local amenities. This is truly a luxury experience and not to be missed! From start to finish a great customer focus from the owners and we will certainly be back to enjoy it all over again.

“Fantastic modern apartment with a great view”

From the booking to arrival the communication was perfect. We arrived at the agreed time to be welcomed to the apartment and found a lovely welcome pack of chocolates and biscuits and then found a the lovely surprise of chocolate cake in the fridge. The apartment is modern and has all that you could require including Wi-Fi. The living room is upstairs giving you a perfect view over the loch, with two modern bathrooms. The apartment is well located for getting around Dumfries and Galloway and we took in walks at Sandyhills and Clatteringshaws and visited many of the local towns and villages. Although we only had breakfasts in the accommodation there is everything that you would need in the kitchen. In the evenings we ate at The Kings Arms only a couple of hundred yards from the apartment and also at The Crown Hotel all the staff at these pubs/hotels were really welcoming and the food was super. One place not to miss out on is the Fish & Chips at Moore's only a hundred yards away from the apartment they are just perfect. I would recommend this apartment to anyone as you won't be dissappointed our only little gripe was that the beds are not as comfortable as our bed at home.
