Margaret the owner was extremely friendly and generous in her hospitality. The accommodation was of a very high standard and extremely comfortable. House keeping was meticulous and the full Scottish breakfast... More

We stayed at ards house in July 2014 for 3 nights, we enjoyed our stay very much and Margaret was an excellent host, we have visited twice before some years ago and the standards are still as good as last time. Thanks Margaret for making us so welcome again.

Beautiful location, great views from your room. Each room was well decorated and charming. Extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and portions were generous. Best of all, we got to meet the hostess, Margaret! She regaled us with brilliantly told stories and was great company. Loved everything about this stay and we're looking forward to visiting again! Thank you... More

It would have been nice to stay at Ards House longer. The host is a great cook and brings out homemade cakes and the like at short notice. Nice rooms with views and great value too. Truly an example of Scottish hospitality! Very gay friendly, we will come back next time in Scotland.

Loved our couple of nights with lovely Margaret in her gracious and beautifully decorated home. Very comfortable beds and full block out curtains made for a good sleep. Views from the rooms were lovely, and the choices of delicious traditional Scottish breakfasts cooked and served by Margaret were excellent. She even de-boned my sons kippers at the table!
