What a find! This guest house has been open for just over a year. Judging by the pristine interior you would think it was yesterday. We arrived on a quiet tuedsay and were given a choice of rooms. We opted for Skipness with its claw footed bath. We were cautioned that we overlooked the main road and may be bothered by traffic. Fortunately the location is middle of nowhere so if there was a car an hour I would be surprised! Maurice and Steve are the hosts and they really do make you feel like guests. We were offered tea and biscuits on arrival and we had this in their vintage lounge with roaring fireplace, enticing drinks cabinet and scenic country views. After a long journey we opted to eat in and were treated to some exquisite fare. Produce and drinks are locally sourced and Steve's cooking is worth the few hours drive off the beaten track. To work up an appetite we strolled to the nearby beach. Everyone we met seemed to enjoy the tranquil vibe of the area and were happy to stop and talk. The room was comfortable and the Egyptian cotton sheets helped the sleep, of that I am sure! Breakfast is another opportunity to over indulge, on the first morning I ate sensibly after the previous nights grand dinner, but on day two I went for the cooked Scottish Breakfast. Yum. The hosts were entertaining and made you feel special, nothing was not too much bother. This was a gem of a find. The brownie points gained from the wife for choosing this guest house should stand me in good stead for a while! Tripadvisor

A lunch to remember always! My husband & I were driving the road less travelled from Cronaig to Campbelltown, we thought there would be somewhere to stop for lunch, however we were sadly mistaken. We pulled into the carpark of Carradales Luxury Guest House at 3.15pm. We were warmly greated by Maurice. After explaining our situation Maurice invited us in & Steve proceeded to rattle off soups, breads, and a cake just baked! We thoroughly enjoyed our very decadent lunch. Maurice was a wealth of local information. He supplied us with a map & brochures (which we forgot to take). Their hospitality was second to none & the guest house is absolutely beautiful. We didn't stay at the guest house, as we wanted to push on further on our trip. However if we ever in the area again, we would have no hesitation in staying at this 5 star accommodation. Thanks again to you both & we hope you prosper. Tripadvisor

A Little Gem 24 miles south of Tarbert in the village of Carradale there is a Church of Scotland manse which has been converted into a unique bed and breakfast. Maurice and Steve have combined their culinary,artistic and hospitality skills to create a wonderful experience.The bedrooms are very tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable beds and superb en- suite facilities. We enjoyed a pre- dinner drink in the very attractive lounge, beside the open fire before being shown to our table in the equally attractive dining room. Steve who is an experienced chef takes time to explain the menu and dinner on both evenings was extremely good. Highly recommend this special place. Tripadvisor

Style and luxury in Carradale Stayed last weekend at Carradales and our visit was without fault. Maurice and Steve are the perfect hosts and did everything they could to make our visit memorable. The rooms were immaculate and the facilities second to none. We often visit Carradale and Carradales will be our place of choice to stay from now on. Breakfast was exceptional and our only regret is that we didn't get to sample the evening meals because we were attending an event. Anyone visiting Carradale should look no further than Carradales for a comfortable, elegant and enjoyable stay. Tripadvisor

This place is an absolute Jewel. We stayed nearby and couldn't get dinner booked as it is so popular so managed to get a lunch time booking - The food was simply first class in a beautiful setting, prepared and served personally by Steve who as a host is the most delightful and interesting character. I wish we were staying in the area longer to have secured a dinner booking. The décor is to die for, we were allowed to view the guest rooms which each in-turn were breath-taking - We will be back !

A lovely stay in great comfort! The property is overlooking fields at one end of the village. Quiet spot, but a pub/restaurant close by. On site parking. Really warm welcome from Maurice and Steve. We had the room with the bay window overlooking the field. Freshly refitted shower room. Powerful shower. Comfy bed. easy chairs. Tea making. We had dinner freshly cooked and delicious. Excellent Scottish breakfast. The best stay of our tour. Tripadvisor

Supurb 1st visit and won't be the last. On arrival we got ushered onto the lounge, with such a warm welcome.the drinks list was all local. Gin was superb. The menu had a fantastic selection. We had the beef, the chicken peanut satay and the salmon. All dishes were fantastic, the chef comes and tells you how it was made, love that!! It's very reasonable priced. There house is very tasteful decorated. Well worth staying. Fantastic guys. Tripadvisor

Wendyh

Excellent as always Yet another fabulous evening at Carradale's! It's important to book because they're increasingly more often fully booked and rightly so. Maurice and Stephen sensibly stagger your bookings to give you as much of their time as possible, so once you've booked, help them to help you by being on time Tripadvisor

HelenR

What a fantastic hidden gem! I can only encourage anyone looking to stay in the area to make a booking. It is truly a 5 star experience and Morris and Steve make you feel right at home. With great evening meals and breakfast you will not be disappointed. Tripadvisor
