It was wonderful to return to this very special haven in Iona. From being met at the ferry to the warm welcome from Richard, to the beautiful, comfortable spacious rooms that are tastefully decorated, to the warm scones and welcome cup of coffee on arrival, I was reminded of why I love staying at Ardoran House. The property is situated... More

In 10 days of B&B throughout Scotland and Northern Ireland, this was the best B&B we stayed in. We were warmly greeted, offered a glass of wine in the windowed sitting room, and given an overview of the "extras" - hot tub, heated towel racks, internet access etc. This is a relatively new, purpose built B&B and it is a...

My husband and I just had the privilege of staying at the Ardoran in Iona. The island is totally breath taking and the people very friendly. Richard the Manager at the Ardoran is a warm, caring and wonderful person. He has a wonderful disposition and great sense of humor. He is an amazing host. The rooms are very comfortable, clean...

I can't recommend this charming place to stay highly enough! The breakfast was of the highest quality, the bedroom was very pleasant, the hot tub and sauna were fun and the complimentary drink ahead of supper was much appreciated.

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

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.
