Five of us (all ladies) booked this house in Largs for 3 nights in September.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Largs. We spent the Saturday in the town at the Viking festival and had a really enjoyable and interesting day at Dalgarven Mill on the Sunday. I would recommend this little museum and tearoom for a visit.
We also enjoyed our stay at this house.
The Positives were:
It is a beautiful house that is spacious and well laid out with a large kitchen/diner and separate sitting room.
There is ample parking
It is about 1.5 miles from Largs centre so you could walk there, although we used the car to get into town.
It has a large, very private back garden with a table and chairs although we did not use it as the weather was not warm enough.
Once we worked out how to use the heating control, the house was warm and cosy.
There is ample equipment including a freezer, two fridges, dishwasher and washing machine/dryer
The negatives for us were:
There were no comprehensive instructions on how to use any of the equipment so we had to spend quite a bit of time trying to work things out. We finally got the dishwasher, main TV (we gave up on the TV in the kitchen), heating and oven going but it was frustrating that we could not find instructions to help with these.
The mattresses on each of the 4 single beds were lumpy and uncomfortable. We had to use spare quilts underneath us to let us use these beds. These really need to be replaced.
The controls on the cooker are no longer visible and the oven, although not filthy, could have been doing with a clean.
The door on one of the fridges did not close properly, no matter how you tried to close it a gap remained at the top. We stopped using this fridge altogether.
I am sorry to have re-iterate some of the negative comments from previous guests. They did not spoil our stay but if these issues were addressed then this house would be an excellent choice.
Nice property- only stayed one night :) garden needed some tlc although didn’t affect our stay. Would come back.
Loved the house loved the location and had a great time in Largs. Childhood trips out revisited and sad to see the puggies on the front replace by a Wetherspoons ... And had to pay a visit and have a few glasses for old tines sake!
The only real quibble is that the appliances and mattresses need attention or replacing. Although we got dishwasher and oven to work both appeared to be more art than science. One fridge seemed to be out of order but I missed the conversation with my group on this topic so was only one who ate the pate. And only one with food poisoning. Sort the appliances and beds out and the place would be great.
