We stayed here for one night and found the room very comfortable. It was spacious, with a nice view looking over to the beautiful hills and farms at the back the guest house. The furniture and equipment were new and of high quality. Richard and John were friendly and they greeted us with great hospitality - helping us to deliver... More

Absurdly well-appointed with the very choices you'd make in your own home - soft bedding, multiple pillows, strong bedside reading light, superb shower and good towels on a heated rail. Many teas in your room, and good wifi. There's nothing careless or miserly in these surroundings. In fact, there's no sense of being in an establishment at all; this could... More

i stayed here for three days last year, and was pampered by Richard. Found it absolutely fabulous place to stay, modern, clean, and comfortable. I couldn't ask for more. I'm rebooking for next year, and taking a friend with me, so looking forward to it.

Richard at the Ardoran House was exceptional in his attention to detail and his warm welcome. The B&B is maintained to perfection and it was lovely to stay in such luxury and pampering. The view from each window ranged from water to rolling green hills filled with sheep! I cannot say enough about Richard he is a great host, I... More

Ardoran House is beautifully maintained and the welcome is warm and gracious. This is a top of the line B & B with all the details for a comfortable stay taken care of by the host, Richard. I brought a group of 7 people to stay for 6 days and every day was a treat on Iona.

My 2 sisters and I had the magical opportunity to spend 3 days on Iona at the Ardoran House! Our rooms looked out to the hillside with the sheep grazing...we could open our windows & take in the cool Scottish air. Our host, Richard, spoiled us, pampered us & prepared unbelievable breakfasts! We were served wine at 6pm every night... More

I can only echo all that has been said by previous reviewers. Ardoran offers a unique experience: superb hospitality in a wonderful location, all offered with the utmost grace. Iona is special, and staying at Ardoran made it even more so.

This is the best B&B we have stayed so far. Every detail is thought of. The host is very accommodating and maintains this property in impeccable condition. Excellent Scottish breakfast. We took advantage of the good weather and went to the beach across from the house.

Have booked before and always come back to the wonderful ambience and care provided by the host, careful attention to detail, and beatifully decorated rooms. It is far and away the best B&B I have ever visited and will continue to come back every chance I get.
