The private apartment on the first floor is affectionately known as "The Wee Snug" and offers the perfect retreat for couples or families that crave a little more privacy but still have the benefits of the hostel atmosphere.
We have an open-plan common room with a lounge and dining area for 24 guests, which can be screened off to form 2x separate ones each with it's own lounge/dining area. If you run out of conversation there’s a TV (free Sat channels), DVD player (or played through a PS2), electric keyboard, and a guitar. The lounge windows offer fabulous views of Loch Fyne, across to the Cowal peninsula and all the way south towards the isle of Arran. Patio doors from the lounge lead onto a wrap-around walkway with outdoor eating and seating area and also to the fire pit / BBQ area.
This is accessed from the lounge and has 3 separate cooking areas, each complete with its own hob, kettle, toaster, sink and all of the usual crockery, pots & pans cutlery, and utensils. There’s a large fridge with each shelf labelled for use by guests in each of our rooms, plus a separate fridge in the accessible area of the kitchen. Shelving units enable guests to store their own dried foodstuffs on labelled shelves, or in their room's lockable cupboard which also houses their crockery/cutlery.
