Thank you, Richard, for a wonderful stay at Ardoran House on the island of Iona. The B&B is extremely clean and neat. Your garden was lovely, and we enjoyed the flowers all over the house. We loved our glass of wine with you at the Ardoran House before dinner in town. The beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast was... More

All I would say about Ardoran is that it is a lovely, well presented luxury accommodation with amazing views - but at £170 per night, this is approximately three times the price you would normally expect to pay for B&B in this part of the world. Great if you have the budget, but to my mind, Iona is about getting... More

Could not have asked for more. Richard, the owner was away when we stayed, but we were very well looked after by Catherine. We were met with tea and freshly made scones. It is just a short walk from the ferry port, but if you don't want to walk, you can be met by car. Very much enjoyed a soak... More

My sister and I,reunited from Australia and Scotland , spent 2 nights at this beautiful and comfortable B&B. Our host, Richard, has an exceptional standard of care and attention to detail. Some of the many comforts we indulged in were: a huge afternoon tea to welcome us,bubbling hot spa sipping on a glass of wine,indoor sauna,fluffy robes and lovely toiletries... More

Lovely place if you're going to spoil yourself. Richard loves hosting guests - he's always on hand to bring you home-made scones and tea, or a few glasses of very well chosen wine if you're relaxing in the hot tub. We were made to feel like royalty - it was wonderful.

My visit was superb. Richard was a charming, warm host who took care of everything I needed, including arranging a pick-up at the dock and helping me plan all the connections from Oban to Iona for an overnight stay and boat tour. This purpose-built guest house could not have been more thoughtfully planned, from the immaculate and spacious bathroom and... More

Being collected by car off the ferry on a cold, wet evening and whisked to the home away from home, was a dream. From the moment I walked through the door, this B & B exuded comfort, hospitality and care. Richard could not have been a more charming host with so many interesting stories to tell. The sumptuous and varied... More

This purpose-built B and B on the amazing Island of Iona is completely wonderful. Stay at Ardoran House! The furnishings and special touches are welcoming and comfortable. The proprietor, Richard, is a gracious host and a super chef, and breakfast here was a highlight! I was traveling solo and was perfectly at home here. I know it sounds like I'm... More

We walked in the door and felt immediately relaxed and at home! The decor was fabulous and the rooms were extremely comfortable with excellent views. Conversations over wine in the conservatory in the late afternoon with the other guests added to the charm. Richard is the best host that we have ever encountered. His attention to every detail makes this... More

We spent two nights at Ardoran House, one of the most pleasant B and B stays we have ever had in Scotland, if not the best. Richard was a gracious host, who made us feel most welcome. Our room was most comfortable, and the wine with light snacks in the late after noon was delightful. Ardoran is our choice for... More
