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.

One of the very best B&Bs I've ever come across. Spotless, new, it has an atrium, sauna and an outdoor hot tub, comfortable beds/rooms. Only seven minutes' walk from the ferry but we were picked up in a car by the kind owner. Breakfast is 'to die for', staff and management are bending over backwards to provide the 'best possible'...

I stayed here without booking it because my booked room was needed for others but this upgrade was a memorable one in every respect. Richard couldn't have been a better host....the room was beautifully prepared, the lounge and conservatory were welcoming and the breakfast was first rate. if you have never been to Iona and are not sure where to...

A random choice, but was amazing. Ardoran House is supposed to be a Bed and Breakfast but it is an experience. The rooms are lovely, the breakfasts are wonderful. But what makes it so special is 'Richard' - the manager/host. He provided an exceptional welcome and was incredibly attentive. If you book, make sure Richard is there. If he is... More
