We recently stayed here for 1 night, we arrived in Rothesay early evening and booked the night at the Ardyne. We usually stay in hotels so this was a bit new for us. The hosts were very welcoming, our room was lovely and clean and provided everything needed for a comfortable nights stay, ensuite bathroom, tea/coffee making facilities, lots of... More

The Ardyne was a great place to stay. Very nice hosts, great breakfasts. Our room was small, but I actually like small spaces, so it was perfect. Our room had two windows which gave us lovely breezes throughout the night, but another in our party said her room was a bit stuffy - no windows that would open.

This was our second stay at the Ardyne, last year the weather was beautiful, so I didn't think the stay would be as enjoyable as the weather wasn't as sunny this time, how wrong was I. A very relaxing stay. The views are fantastic whatever the weather. The room was comfortable, I enjoyed my cuppa and shortcake biscuit in our... More

Unfortunately, due to bad weather, I was unable to travel to Scotland in December and stay at the Ardyne. However, despite the very short notice, David and Kate allowed me to keep a credit on file for when I was able to travel again. This wasn't until 7 months later, and despite being very busy, they still honoured my credit.... More

We spent three nights here in July 2014. The rooms are clean and well appointed with very comfortable beds. The breakfast is excellent with a good choice of food.

We enjoyed our stay on the Isle of Bute and were thrilled that The Ardyne was recommended by friends as a better than average B&B. The host and hostess, David and Kate, were very friendly and made us feel very welcome right from the start. Our room was spotless, well appointed and extremely comfortable.

Our room had a bay window with a great view over the water. The room itself was very clean and peaceful and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was average and certainly not as good as all the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor had cracked it up to be - it felt like catering standard rather than homemade standard.

I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the breakfast. Our breakfasts are made fresh to order and not kept warm on a hotplate. It is a pity that you didn't tell us at the time when we would have had an opportunity to put things right. Regards David More
