We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. Karen and Sean are wonderful hosts, very friendly, helpful, and welcoming, and breakfast is amazing! The view of the loch from our room was beautiful (even in slightly rainy weather), the room was perfect, and the overall attention to details at Ardtorna (including homemade cream liqueur, espresso, chocolates, and fresh, delicious...

We have just enjoyed a 9 night stay at Ardtorna and loved every second! Karen and Sean are the perfect hosts, who have created a superb B and B of the very highest standard located in an Idyllic spot overlooking Loch Creran. Absolutely perfect for enjoying some rest and relaxation, but also situated in a central location offering easy access... More

What a great location , view and lovely hosts. This place was made for unwinding and such attention to detail made for a delightful stay. This place is well worthy of its 5 star status but will make other B and Bs pale in comparison!!

Our 3rd trip to Ardtorna and it just gets better and better. Karen and Sean are wonderful hosts and it was such a lovely evening to sit outside drinking wine and eating our nibbles. So relaxing. We have now stayed in 3 of the 4 rooms so will be back to try the last!

Ardtona is more like a Boutique Hotel with 4 luxurious rooms than a Bed and Breakfast. I agree entirely with the many previous reviews and am not going to repeat everything again but I will add one or two comments that I hope are useful. Deciding where to eat dinner and getting reservations can be a problem when you are... More

After reading the many positive reviews of Ardtorna, we were looking forward to spending our 35th wedding anniversary here. We were not disappointed. From the moment we set foot in the house, Karen and Sean made us feel very at home.

Stayed here in July 2014 and had an absolutely wonderful room with a lake view. Karen and Sean were so incredibly hospitable during our stay, and helped us with our itinerary for the next day, and the dining recommendation at Hawthorn Restaurant was top-notch. Have enjoyed the wonderful amenities, bright rooms and top class service. The special select malt whiskey... More

This place is a real find. and easy to find too. Very smart, very tasteful and spotless. View from room is magnificent - if its not raining, and was glorious weather during my stay. Owner is really hospitable and great cook for breakfast. Calling it a B & B is a misnomer, its a special B & B.

Second visit to Ardtorna this year. Karen and Sean must have the best Bed and Breakfast establishment in Scotland. First class in every way. If you have never been you don't know what you are missing. Have stayed in many premises over the years and Ardtorna is better than all 5 star "hotels" we have stayed in.
