Our visit to this magical island, last weekend, was all too short. We were very fortunate to stay in this absolutely beautiful and peaceful haven. Thank you, Richard, for your kindness, care, yummy tea and scones and equally yummy breakfasts. We had the added pleasure of enjoying good wine and conversation with both you and your guest from Santa Barbara.... More

We arrived early evening on Iona on a rather wet Friday - the rain was coming down heavy as we got off the ferry! Thankfully, we were rescued from the deluge by Ailidh (John & Ailidh are the generous and lovely owners of Ardoran House who provided transport to our first dining experience at Martyr's Bay Restaurant .. super service...

Having loved two previous visits to Ardoran House and the restfulness of the Isle of Iona as a solo guest, I was over the moon to be returning with my husband - a surprise trip booked by him for our wedding anniversary. I have raved about the kind and thoughtful touches by Richard who runs Ardoran and also about the... More

We had such a lovely time here that nowhere else on our trip could match up to. Richard has an amazing attention to detail, Ardoran House is beautifully furnished and lots of personal touches make it feel so special. Richard is a fabulous host, and manages to create a real camaraderie between the guests with the 6 o'clock glass of... More

We had an amazing few days in this fabulous place - where to begin to review it?! It's not so much a B&B; more private spa hotel with personal butler! Having had difficult journeys, not only were we met at the pier, with our luggage carried and ourselves driven to the house (not far to walk), but dinner was booked... More

Add us in as another voice singing the praises of Ardoran house. We had a rough time getting there as we missed the ferry from Oban that we would have needed to make the connecting ferry from Mull to Iona. (Side note to other travellers- make a reservation for the ferry! we actually got there in time- but anyone who... More

If you've made the choice to stay on Iona, it's because you want to explore it's beauty and relative solitude. The Ardoran House is the perfect place to stay and Richard is a fabulous host. The accommodations are comfortable and spotless, and the breakfast is wonderful. We spent the afternoon exploring the island and returned to a relaxing glass of... More

There is nothing I can think of that would give me cause to grant less than the maximum of stars. Even for host Richard's wicked sense of humor, which was almost wickeder than mine (wide grin)! In the Ardoran House my companion and I felt like the Lord and Lady of the Isles. It is beautiful, comfortable, even a place... More

A home away from home, that's what Richard creates for your stay at Iona. Great hospitality, cosy luxury room with comfortable bed and a breakfast that will get your day started in an unforgettable way. The complimentary glass of wine at 6pm in the lounge with a view on the bay is something to get "home" for in time (LOL).... More
