What an absolutely wonderful B&B Arden Country House is. We have had the pleasure of staying here twice now and both times have been total perfection. The B&B is just outside Linlithgow in the open countryside, up a long sweeping drive. The house is immaculate and the rooms are beautifully decorated. We have stayed in two of the rooms now... More

My husband and I stayed here on the 9th of Jan after he booked it as a birthday surprise along with a meal at the Champany Inn. It was also the first time we had left our 8 month old (rubbish sleeper!) overnight, so needless to say I was looking forward to a nice relaxing evening. We were greeted by... More

We have been staying at this wonderful B&B for many years, and its still the best. The rooms are big and very comfortable, the bed gives you a great nights sleep and the ensuite is clean and fresh with a great shower.

Plenty of towels, robes, iron, tea and coffee all provided. There is a separate sitting room for guests where a delicious afternoon tea was served when we... More

This absolute gem is the height of pampering by the most gracious of hostesses. Beth knows her business and knows just how to spoil her guest's. The rooms are stunning, every small touch from homemade meringues to champagne flutes are all on hand. I strongly recommend if you are looking for the exceptional place to stay, this is it!

We have returned here ever since, because it is by far the most wonderful of all.
