My husband and I stayed here for one night in October 2014. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess who gave us great advice about local attractions and restaurants. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, as was the pretty ensuite. The house was built in the 1860s and has been a vicarage, home for nuns, teacher training accommodation... More

I've stayed in B&B's all over the world and this is the best ever. The room was spotless as was the bathroom. It was cosy and warm and the Victorian style coal effect fire was a nice touch. We were made to feel at home right away, the bedroom, lounge and dining room were beautifully restored. We had access to... More

After my rather disappointing stay at the Lindenderry in Redhill, a 5 star hotel, last weekend, Ardenlee surpassed all our expectations. Marion and David's Hospitality was so welcoming. Marion gave us suggestion as to where to eat for our evening meal and we took her advice and were not disappointed! The Rooms are all renovated to the highest of standards... More

Everything you look for in a traditional B & B - spacious rooms, extremely comfortable beds, beautiful linen and finishing touches, attention to detail. Thoughtful and helpful hosts. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and found it to be an immaculately maintained Bed and Breakfast. The owners have done an amazing job restoring a very old house and they said they have plans to make it even better! We stayed in the Tralee room which is at the front of the property and looks out... More

Marian and David provided a warm welcome and lovely personal touches that made this the best b&b experience by far. Not only is everything high quality, but you can tell there is a high level of pride and cleanliness throughout. That said, the highlight was certainly breakfast, I only wish I could have stayed longer so I could have had... More

We had a lovely stay and enjoyed all the extra touches that Marian provides - scones, chocolates and good advice. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was enjoyable and we lingered chatting with other guests and Marian. My only concern might be if you have an issue with stairs as they are narrow and steep. We are happy... More
