From the moment you arrive and Gillian greets you as an old friend, this is a very special place. There's a lovely, warm atmosphere and the views must rank amongst the finest anywhere in Scotland. This is not just another 'B and B': it's more like returning to your own holiday home. Superb. Thank you!

We (family of 4) stayed one night at Ardness House, and we really enjoyed it :o) Hostess Gillian was so much fun to be around, and she served the most delicious dinner for us the night of our arrival. We could choose between several starters and desserts, which our boys thought was a great treat! The rooms are very clean... More

Four of us stayed one night in June 2014. Gillian couldn't have been more welcoming, and she cooked an excellent dinner and breakfast. The location is lovely, and the house is quiet, spotlessly clean and well maintained.

Ardness House and hostess Gillian were a wonderful experience. Gillian is delightful and seems to be a contented person - not easy to come by! The view from the common room is incredibly beautiful, and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests there. Gillian's breakfasts were fantastic and I look forward to returning the next time I am in Scotland.

I highly recommend Ardness House. The rooms were well done and sparkling clean. Views of the country side were breathtakingly beautiful. Our hostess Gillian was lovely and has a delightful sense of humor. She was most helpful in offering suggestions and helping with arrangements for touring the area. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. I would love to stay here... More

My parents and I stayed at Ardness House for one night in October 2013. The B&B itself is in Bunessan, which we felt was the ideal base to explore nearby Iona and Staffa. We were greeted by Gillian upon our arrival and shown to our rooms. My parents stayed in a double room with a view and an ensuite bathroom,... More

My son and I stayed here at the end of April 2014. We couldn't fault anything. The welcome, accommodation, food, everything was excellent. Gillian is a great hostess and looked after everyone with great care and enthusiasm. We hope to visit Mull again this year and will definitely stay at Ardness House.

Great room with a view on the water, great food and a real Scottish hostess - Gillian. Most B&B's we found in the Hebrides were owned and operated by Brits. No problem with that, but having a native is that much more local color, accent, etc!

We arrived at ardness house to a very warm welcome on a rather wet and windy day in March.The good things started happening from when we booked our accomodation as we were offered the chance of one of Gillian's farmhouse evening meals which was authentic island food and delicious. Our room was warm and comfortable and we also had the... More
