This is a first class B&B and Richard, your host, graciously takes care of every detail. The bedrooms are beautifull decorated with good taste and the breakfast is delicious. My room, number 5, looked directly onto the palest blue sea and waking to the sounds of the waves is so restful. The living room and conservatory are for everyone to... More

Ardoran House exudes understated elegance and warm, genuine hospitality. Richard greeted us with grace and kindness. The downstairs "common areas" are tastefully decorated and the conservatory provides a lovely view of the sea and the island of Mull. Our room was spotless and included all the amenities needed and along with a beautiful view of fields where sheep and rabbits... More

Richard, the host, arranged to pick up our luggage at the ferry dock and after a short walk to Ardor House, we were greeted with wine, cheese/crackers and the most accommodating host we have ever encountered. Ardoran House is a great place to stay - close to the village center, the Abbey, the Iona Cultural Heritage Center and many other... More

Our room was great! Cleanliness is at the top of the list for this B&B, with the breakfasts equally important. We felt totally at home here. Richard made us feel very welcome. The breakfast he cooks is amazing - full Scottish breakfast, with more than enough to eat. Thank you for a wonderful experience! I would stay here again without... More

We had a room on the first floor with a sea view. The room was large and very comfortable. This is an expensive B&B but you do get quality fittings, two lounges with everything you might need on a wet day, and a very gracious host. Richard was welcoming and ready at the drop of the hat to help with... More

Iona is magical and staying at Ardoran House definitely allows you to make the most of the experience. Ardoran is located on the shore just a very short walk from the ferry. Only residents cars are allowed on the island so it's almost traffic free. Ardoran is a beautifully decorated house and the rooms are spacious all having lovely views... More

We recently spent one night on Iona and after experiencing the comforts of Ardoran we wish it had been much longer. We struggled a bit after getting off the ferry as we weren’t sure where the house was located as it isn’t listed on the map posted on the information board. When I asked a local shopkeeper for directions she... More

We spent two nights at Ardoran House while visiting Iona and loved it! Our accommodations there were top notch and recommendations of restaurants were very good. Iona is an island of long historical significance and arriving brings about a sense of peace not found other places. Breakfasts were very good and left us fortified for busy days ahead. Many thanks... More
