Excellent B&B accomodation with superb service. After a rain soaked visit to Iona Gillian welcomed our party and popped our wet things into her tumble drier. We also dined at Ardness where both the food and service was superb. Finally after we left for home, Gillian found our return ferry tickets sitting in our room and called ahead to the... More

Previous reviews on Trip Advisor encouraged us to go to Ardness House and they were 100% accurate. The view from our room was so beautiful that it is both preserved in my mind's eye and my favourite holiday photo! Every compliment to Gillian and her parents is thoroughly deserved-the rooms and food were great, the proximity to the Iona ferry... More

We just returned to Berlin and are still full of tales and thoughts about our stay in Scotland and especially in Ardness House. Gillian and her family made us so welcome and did everything to make us feel at home. There was no rush in the mornings or evenings. When raining - and it did a lot! - we could... More

I have just read the previous review and wonder whether I went to the same place! I stayed at Ardness House with my fiancée and we both loved it. A great base for our visit to Iona. Gillian could not have been nicer and nothing was too much trouble. Arriving later on in the evening, we didn't fancy anymore driving... More

I could excuse the dated furniture and furnishings at Ardness House. I could excuse the tight bathroom space in my room, which would have required a taller person to sit on the toilet sideways. I could excuse the rationing of bath soap to one tiny, tiny sample tube. I could laugh and excuse how she served a single egg for... More

Ardness House is a Bed & Breakfast, not hotel. Very nice accommodations. We were a party of 4..2 bedrooms both with en-suite showers. Gillian was very pleasant and informative of where best to find a meal, since we didn't arrive until 8:30 in the evening. She recommended The Keel Row and we were not disappointed. On our return from dinner,... More

Gillian was the most wonderful hostess to seven of us bikers she was very helpful arranging us ferry,s and boat trips for us during our two days on Mull. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic and her porridge is the best in Scotland! (We conducted a survey on our two week tour of Scotland) I will most certainly visit again!

Our party of three, including our friend from Australia, stayed with Gillian at Arness House in May. The hospitality was second to none, the food was fantastic, especially the eggs from Gillian's hens and the lamb from the farm. The rooms were comfortable and the views exceptional. Ardness House is the ideal spot from which to explore the Isle of... More

Me, my wife and our two daughters staid in Ardness House for two nights. You could have not asked for a nicer place or a more friendly and welcoming hostess. Gillian ensured that we felt home the whole time, from a friendly fire in the living room and a nice cup of tea when we arrived to a wonderful breakfast... More
