Ardtorna is by far the best B&B my husband and I have ever stayed in. The B&B is beautiful and modern, clean and friendly, with views to die for. The location is perfect in terms of exploring the area and has some excellent restaurants near by. We adored watching the sun set from the spectacular view provided by our room... More

From the moment you walk into Ardtorna and are warmly welcomed by Karen and Sean you realise that this is somewhere special. Spotlessly clean, modern design, high quality finishes and all the little extras that have been mentioned in other reviews, add up to a really enjoyable stay. A very comfortable night's sleep, followed by a truly outstanding breakfast finished... More

Whatever I write about this very special home, with equally special hosts, will not convey the wonderful experience provided for guests lucky enough to find Ardtorna. My husband and I stayed for two nights to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and left with numerous happy memories. Having had the experience of owning a 5* B & B for many years,... More

My partner, Alan booked us in here at the last minute as an add on to our weekend away at another establishment. We go weekends away quite a lot and I have to say, I am probably very picky and quite hard to please. Especially when it comes to customer service. I was not disappointed by any aspect at all...

........but we were genuinely inspired by this place. Chic, modern, full of thoughtful touches (chocolates, whiskey, toffees, etc), awesome jacuzzi, superb breakfast, and unfailingly helpful and charming owners. Sean's directions to local restaurants are particularly detailed if your iPhone packs up........thoroughly recommended.
