Run by efficient, friendly Margaret, this B&B overlooks the sea with free parking across the road. Our room was a tad small but we were lucky to get a room at all, so no complaints! It had thoughtful little touches which extended into the bathroom. The view looked out to sea. The bed was snugglesome. The breakfast was hearty and... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Ards House for two nights. The hostess, Margaret, was wonderful. She prepared a delicious breakfast daily and gave us some great advice on what to see while we were in the area. Her home has been beautifully renovated. Our room , at the front of the house, was spacious and looked out at... More

The owner, Margaret, aims for perfection. We had room three, big fluffy towels, expensive toiletries, superb views, jacuzzi, and breakfast doesn't get any better. Very good value for money, and nothing is too much trouble.

The view from our room was idyllic. This well-run B&B (by your amiable and helpful hostess Margaret) is spotless and roomy. The breakfasts were top of the line, highlighted by Margaret's signature fruit salads made daily. The scenic location allowed easy access to all the advantages of the nearby city of Oban and provides a cozy and quiet spot for... More

This is a very high quality house with wonderful 5 star quality rooms. The breakfasts were feasts and Margaret is rightly regarded as the friendliest Bed & Breakfast owner in Scotland. A total delight. Can't wait to go back.

We have been going to Margaret's wonderful Guest House for the last nine years and we will most certainly be back again next year. She is the most wonderful lady and just looks after us so well......correct that......she spoils us beyond imagination! We love being there for all sorts of reasons, obviously the standard of everything in Ards House, whether... More

We visited Ards House for a 4 night stay and we can honestly say it is the best Guest House we have ever stayed in. From the incredibly warm welcome on arrival to the equally warm goodbye on our final morning, this was a place to remember! Margaret puts a lot of time and effort into making your stay as... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, cannot rate this place highly enough. Margaret, the owner, is a fantastic lady and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The room was lovely with a fantastic sea view. The breakfast was unbelievably good - best scramble egg ever and the porridge and baileys was to die for! Thank You from Anne & Jimmy,... More

Margaret, my apologies, I thought I posted this review last year!!! I had booked reservations at Ards House the day before we arrived and Margaret had made reservations at a seafood restaurant in Oban, Ee-Usk. . We arrived in Connell and located Ards House and because we were early, decided to visit Oban and walk around some. Oban’s a busy... More

Margaret is the most wonderful hostess you could ever ask for. It was my B/f birthday while we were away and i had emailed Margaret in advance asking if she could decorate the room for us arriving. She put up banners and gave me a contact num for a balloon shop in Oban. When we arrived the room had been... More
