We had no problem finding the B&B, good signage, off road parking. Our room was spotless and very inviting. We had been spoiled our last few B&B's had large bathrooms. Our bathroom was just big enough for one at a time. The guest lounge was handy to sit and check e-mails. WiFi worked well and I had 4 bars on... More

We had a room with a beautiful view across to Burg. Gillian was very helpful regarding everything about the area--the ferry to Iona & Staffa, where to eat, how long it would take to drive to Craignure, etc. She was very accommodating with some changes we had to make before we arrived. The fire in the lounge and the big... More

Ardness House is a lovely extended bungalow, with beautiful views over the sea and warm, friendly hospitality provided by Gillian MacNeill. The accommodation is spotless and comfortable, with en-suite bathrooms and a choice of single twin or double beds. A hearty full Scottish cooked breakfast was enjoyed each morning and a real log fire in the lounge provided extra comfort,... More

Lovely room, comfortable bed, hospitality tray, shower etc; room is quite small but this did not bother us. Communal lounge with TV; also communal eating for meals which is a great way to meet your fellow guests. Breakfast... More

Nothing was too much trouble, good value for money and excellent evening meals with meat from their own animals. Communal dining adds to the experience. We shared a bathroom, this wasn't a problem but en suite rooms are available.

The place is nice and the host really kind. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable, The only problems were that the room was very small, we almost didn't have space for the suitcases. and very little water came out from the shower. The breakfast was very good. The porridge is one of the best ones... More

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
