I would like to start my review by saying I am a little confused as to which property I'm reviewing and on which website! We initially booked a first floor flat with Rose of Sharon lets that was on the same road as the Rose of Sharon beauty parlour. I received a text from the owners a day before arrival telling me 'due to urgent repair work, we would not be staying at the place we had booked, but had an upgrade (?) to a different place - a ground floor flat immediately next to the station'. We had just completed the third of the three peaks when I got this text so was filled with trepidation on what to expect when we arrived in Largs for what was supposed to be a relaxing couple of days, meeting friends (that live in Largs).
On arrival, we picked the keys up from the shop and drove round to the upgraded place. The parking was a bonus as we'd done almost 800 miles in the previous 5 days and intended not moving the car whilst in Largs. Other than being next to the station, which doesn't really affect the flat, the location of the premises is excellent, around 3 mins to the town centre. The layout of the flat is slightly confusing but once we'd settled and considered the place the bedrooms were allocated accordingly.
During our stay we used most aspects of the flat with no hitches whatsoever. We cooked comfortably, the bathroom was ok and well stocked with towels, and with the heating on the place was warm and cosy. We went out to eat on the first night and felt comfortable enough with the lodgings to invite our friends over for supper and drinks on the second night. The lounge area was huge and easily accommodated the 9 of us.
The owners were clear, concise and always very quick to reply any time we contacted them from our initial booking in October, and if we decide to return to Largs to stay for any time we will consider this as an option.
All in all it made for a relaxing stay in the end but in reality we were all so shattered we'd have slept anywhere.
