Had an absolutely lovely stay at the Belvedere over the New Year, although I knew as soon as arrived and saw the sign in the porch, 'Arrive as strangers, leave as friends,' and the house kind of gave me a warm hug that it was my kind of place!
I'm well travelled and have stayed at many B & B's and hotels but the Belvedere is a special little haven, thanks to Allan and his hospitality. Allan is just a diamond and ensured I had everything I needed and was well looked after. The room and (adjoining private) bathroom was immaculate and everything was provided, including wine glass, and use of the fridge to make my stay comfortable.
The bed and bedding were perfect. I don't usually sleep well when I'm away but was very happy to get a solid few nights while staying here. Breakfast was delicious and set me up perfectly for the day.
It's a beautiful old house on a quiet road perched overlooking the main town of Brodick, an ideal location for ferry and getting around the island.
I only wish I'd been able to stay longer and wouldn't hesitate to rebook if I return to the beautiful Isle of Arran. Thank you for allowing me to stay in your home, and for such warm Scottish hospitality, Allan and staff. x
