RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Beware of being ripped off
I would like to warn other people thinking of staying here of our experience in booking the chalet for September 2017. We booked because of the glowing description in Sykes Travel brochure. We particularly wanted to stay there as we were going to take our boat for a two week stay. Several weeks later we read reviews saying there was a large boat owned by the owner berthed in front of the chalet. Other reviews spoke about the filthy state of the kitchen area, etc. This caused us to get in touch with Sykes as we could foresee difficulties launching our boat with the presence of the owner's large boat. They gave us the owner's contact number and he assured me that the boat would be gone by the time we arrived but, if not, we could launch our boat several miles away which was not what we wanted to do. We decided to cancel the booking and, despite several lengthy letters to Sykes, even one to the CEO, every letter was totally ignored. We lost our deposit of over ?300 and what made it worse was when I saw the dates we had cancelled had been rebooked. The owner, therefore, kept our deposit despite re-letting. Sykes description of the property at the time of booking was not at all accurate and we feel deeply let down by them. We were able to book with another company a lovely chalet with a mooring nearby. We sailed past Dundonald Landing to discover the owner's large boat was still there. We took numerous photographs to prove this. Reading recent reviews it was still there at the end of 2017. This proves ;what we suspected at the time that ;the owner had no intention of moving it. Sykes' description of this property is wholly inaccurate. Because of their totally misleading adverts and the owner's lies we lost over ?300 which neither have the conscience to refund.

Superb lochside location.
Three very pleasant days spent at Dundonald Landing, which is a very comfortable chalet on the shores of Loch Etive. In terms of the location it was superb with outstanding views and an excellent point from which to store and launch a sea kayak (or indeed any such similar small boat). The accommodation was compact and cosy and well appointed for a short break. The owner who lives close by was most accommodating and helpful. The accommodation was dog friendly which was an important consideration for us. A thoroughly enjoyable mini holiday and one I would be happy to recommend to family and friends.

Very Relaxing
Just returned from a weeks break and found the location very private with outstanding views across the loch. The building was very clean, comfortable and well laid out and my mild concerns about the bed being too small and firm were unfounded. Even though it's safe to say I'm quite a large chap my wife and I had no trouble sleeping and the very light traffic on the single track road at the back of the building was not a problem. The owner, Geoffrey, and his son ' Howie' are a mine of local information and very helpful. There is a boat to the right of the building that interrupts the view slightly, but it didn't really spoil or interrupt the evenings I spent sitting on the decking outside the building in the least, in any case it is to be moved as soon as the weather and tide permit. Oban is a must to visit and only a 10 min drive away and there a a fantastic beach only a few miles further on for those that with a pet. Close to the Landing, there are several excellent restaurants/ cafes. My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly return next year

Big ugly grey boat spoils fantastic view!!
This should be a 5* plus review BUT as others have said there is a massive ugly grey boat that obliterates view from cabin!!!! It is on a cradle by the dock so i assume it will not moving for some time? Therefore the photos need to be updated, particularly the ones taken from inside cabin looking out. You should be able to lie in bed with a cup of tea and enjoy the view but all you can see is a ruddy great boat. So sad as we loved the cabin and surrounding area with great cycling and walking opportunities. It is small but well laid out, cosy and warm. The storage shed is great and use of BBQ was good. The cabin does need a deep clean, the windows washed and new mats but we could put up with that. However, the main reason we booked was for the view that was advertised and were very disappointed when we arrived. It irked you every time you looked out the window. If it was dry/no midges you could sit on the dock or in garden and enjoy the view. It being the west coast of Scotland though we were regularly driven inside!
