April,18 Kames Castle - Review by the Owner
Quite simply, we could not operate without Tricia and her team!
She has been central to managing renovation works on our behalf and in our absence. Moreover, she manages all housekeeping, all guest arrivals and ensures that all goes smoothly for guests during their stay.
Quick to deal with problems should they arise we can always count on Tricia to make the right decision. We could not recommend her and her team more highly
My mum and i have stayed in a few flats managed by Tricia,outstanding level of cleanliness,immaculate,and I had a problem with the boiler pressure,she came in 5 mins,a few people I know use the laundry service for airbnb flats, great price, great service ! - M.M
Excellent professional service. Would recommend - K.M
We haven’t even been yet and cannot fault the great communication and assistance we’ve had from Tricia. Having used their properties before I would recommend. Good quality, clean accommodation and fantastic service - M.Mc
Just spent a week at Kames Castle Cottages and zip can honestly say the service we received from Howatts was terrific. I would recommend to anyone they were professional, contactable, helpful and more than that welcoming - S.V
Had my oven cleaned today by Daniel and it's amazing, looks brand new, well worth every penny - A.S
We are just coming to the end of our stay at 7A Argyle Place after spending almost 5 weeks on the island while our home in Glasgow was being renovated.The property is excellent and I would recommend anyone coming to the island for a break to check this out.It has everything myself, wife, young daughter and dog required and more. It has an excellent open plan living room and kitchen area with plenty of room with a couch that can double up as a bed to allow 4 people to live comfortably.A large tv with freeview sky channels is excellent and the wifi provided has great speeds for running all devices with no problems.The bedroom and newly upgraded bathroom was perfect and with the combi boiler there was always hot water for showers etc whenever needed. Plenty of storage and cupboard space for hanging clothes out of the way is also a good feature of the property. A great back garden is an added bonus and will be nice to relax outside here in the summer months. The front garden has views of the bay which is also something that will attract people to the property. I would like to thank the owner for allowing us to have such a nice stay and also Tricia and her team for solving any little problems we had as quickly as possible . All in all this is an excellent place to stay and me being a local Islander most of my life can safely say there's not many like this available to rent...Top marks and would definitely stay here again in the future - D.M
Great holiday accommodation 7a Argyle Place me and my husband stayed there for 4 nights and it was a great place for us. It was very comfortable and cosy everything you needed and more, the kitchen is very well utilised and there is dvds left of different types in the living room which has a lovely fire in there also should you need it and makes it cosy. Also there is wifi, overall it made for a lovely break and Tricia and her staff were very helpful as usual nothing is a problem for them we will be back in one of Tricia's rentals in the summer - T.T
Our new apartment in Rothesay from Tricia Howat at 13 Bishop st and its an other stunner , ensuite bedroom, dinning room, living room, bathroom n downstairs to quirky kitchen n toilet (yes we have 3 toilets, one each lol) you never fail to surprise us Tricia, thank you - C.L
Just back from a weeks stay in a lovely flat on Bute close to friends and family. I would highly recommend it. The flat was very homely clean and tidy - I.Mc
Tricia is taking excellent care of our property in Rothesay. Thanks Tricia ! - C.H
Such a warm and welcoming woman is Tricia and so helpful made me feel special from the outset - I.F
05/08/16 Living over 500 miles away from Bute, down in Devon, Tricia and her team provide me with complete peace of mind looking after and marketing my holiday home. HHPS Bute's 5 star housekeeping standard's is a testament to the many positive TripAdvisor reviews I have received.
Nothing is any trouble. Tricia arranges all the bookings, meets the guests and organises the local island tradesmen for the gas and electrical inspections.
When can you open a branch down in Devon? There are many properties down here needing the Howat touch! J.R
Oct'15 Absolutely loved my carpet clean this morning. Fantastic job, and Jim couldn't have been nicer! Thank you very much - M.Mc
22/9/15 Rented McKinlayTowers from Howats Housekeeping and Property Services and enjoyed our stay in the flat, it was lovely and spacious with huge rooms much to the delight of my daughter and 3 year old Jack Russell. We would definitely recommend Tricia and the company to other people and I am quite positive that we will be purchasing the same place next time we are over - H.M
21/9/15 Wonderful. We feel so lucky to have found Tricia to look after our holiday flat. We live 250 miles away and know it is safe and well looked after when we are not there. It is always clean and welcoming and the guests feedback is excellent. Tricia also listed us on her website and Facebook page and has brought us in loads of lets, all done (unprompted) to help us. Howats has surpassed our expectations and we are delighted - J.B

27/2/15 I would like to put out a great big thank you to Trisha Howat cleaning company. We have just taken over the number 29 restaurant (two days ago) and have tonnes of work to do. We could not believe the state of the kitchen and how filthy it was ,there was no way that we could sort this out ourselves so we got in touch with a local industrial cleaning company (HHPS). Well what a job they've done , no more grease on the ceilings or walls. immaculate stainless steel work surfaces and appliances. Thank you so much for giving us a kitchen that we can operate from, cant wait till our chef and manager see their new kitchen. Xxxxx - A.C

6/2/15 Can't praise this company enough, what a professional service. They have cleaned our yacht inside and out to a very high standard.This has included cleaning all the upholstery, canopies and brass.
