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.

I was getting married and was very overwhelmed by it all and as a little girl i had always driven passed the Ardenlee and wandered what it was like. I rang Marian and asked about a room for January and straight away Marian was very friendly and invited me to come and have a look next time I come to... More

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

We had one of the most pleasant experience living in this B&B while on a road trip in South Australia. It's a quaint little house very well furnished and designed by the couple. Marian is a warm and hospitable host that made us feel at home quickly. We like the luxurious beddings, walls, furnishings and not to mention the warm... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the Wexford room. Ardenlee oozes classic elegance and is easily our favourite heritage accommodation we stayed in on our Victorian holiday. Thankyou Marian and David for sharing your beautiful house with us.

An all too short stay of only one night during a quick trip to Ballarat for some fly fishing at Millbrook. Marian was a sterling host, with every need looked after. The Waterford room was a delight, especially the luxurious bed linens. Not too mention a spotless and elegant bathroom/ensuite. Marian's breakfast was a delightful feast. If you are ever... More
