I rarely leave poor reviews but this pub was very run down. On arrival the reception desk would have benefited from some hot soapy water and a scrub, the pub is in need of a refurbishment and the decor is poor. I was in two minds about staying. Only for the four hour round trip for work the next day... More

We were presented with the biggest wooden keyring and were directed to our room which was on the top floor with very uneven steps so if you have difficulty... More

All staff are very hard working, helpful, smiling and going out of their way to help. We hired 3 rooms, 2 double and one family room. The family room was absolutely massive with bath and very cosy, large... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the Ardencaple. The exterior is a bit run down looking but the welcome from the staff on reception was excellent and my room was very nice and clean. Stairs and landing could have done with a good brush. Breakfast was lovely. The setting is fabulous although I didn't have a sea view.
