Stayed here on 14th June after a last minute booking. From the moment we arrived, we knew we where staying somewhere top class. A modern and contemporary feel, with spacious bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms. High end toiletries, complimentary Jura whisky, freshly baked scones on arrival. Very personable hosts who took time to chat and make you feel welcome. The quality... More

The property was very nice and very clean. It also had a modern style which was a nice change from the other B&B's we stayed at. Our only issue was our GPS couldn't find it but we had fortunately printed directions from Google maps.

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I was pleased to read that you liked the design and style of Ardtorna. Sorry that the Sat Nav took you to across the road from our property.

We stayed over bank holiday weekend in May. Ardtorna is an absolutely stunning property with a really luxurious feel. The weather wasn't so good but this wasn't a problem as all we wanted to do was to spend time in our beautiful room. The breakfast was gourmet, with all locally sourced products. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay... More

We only stayed for one night at Ardtorna, which lies just off the road from Oban to Appin. It was a last-minute booking and we weren't disappointed. The welcome is warm - decanters of malt whisky and whisky liqueur are left out for guests to help themselves - and the room was beautiful, looking out on to Loch Creran. There... More

This is a beautiful B&B, fabulous views, fabulous attention to detail and beautiful food. We had 2 wonderful nights in this lush B&B. The beds are sumptuous. Spa bath was a real treat, (and towels you could get lost in) hot scones on arrival were most welcome, as were the abundant nibbles in the fridge, and the chocolates. The whisky... More

So where to start in reviewing this totally outstanding B&B just outside Oban? It could be the truly stunning location you get to share with the owners Sean & Karen, or the amazing building that is Ardtona or the unique and personal touches you'll find throughout your stay or it could be the best start to your day in the...

What a wonderful B&B - truly in a class of its own. We loved the huge bed, the huge towels and the huge welcome we got from Karen and Sean. A great centre from which to visit the whole area of North Argyll. Thank you both for being such wonderful hosts.

This B&B has four guest suites that are modern and beautifully decorated with all the necessary amenities. The hosts, Sean and Karen are very helpful and have thought of pretty much everything and more. Very full breakfast menu is available and breakfast is served in the dining room family style.

The fantastic house, rooms, breakfast and treats and overwhelming sunset views paired with the owners' hospitality have made our stay unforgettable. We would recommend staying at least two nights to allow more time to relax and enjoy the amenities of Ardtorna B&B and the beautiful area.
