We have just returned from 3 wonderful nights at Ardtorna. We wanted a small slice of luxury & were not disappointed (as we have been so often in other 'luxury' b&bs). Karen & Shaun's friendly professionalism, taste, & commitment to making your stay perfect are apparent from the moment you arrive. Such a comfortable room, wonderful view & fantastic breakfasts....

This is how B&B should be done in the 21st century. The rooms here would put many very expensive hotels to shame. Wonderful location, excellent welcome and service. Nothing to fault. Quite probably the best rooms within 30 miles of Oban. Quite Excellent.

Lovely friendly welcoming hosts, beautiful spotlessly clean room. Lovely breakfast and the warm scones on arrival were delicious. My son enjoyed the complimentary whiskey ( he is over 18) whilst we sat outside an enjoyed the lovely sea views.

There are lots more homely and better value B&B’s than Ardtorna locally to choose from. Ardtorna is an ultra-modern show house, and nothing like any B&B you would have likely stayed at previously. Having just returned from a one night stay there, I personally would avoid booking this expensive des-res, as if you are unlucky (I was) it comes with... More

This is no ordinary bed and breakfast - it is a beautiful, stylish and luxurious place to stay. The bed was the most comfortable we had ever slept in away from home. Karen and Sean are a lovely welcoming couple who take a genuine interest in their guests and did everything they possibly could to make our stay just perfect.... More

We stayed at the Ardtorna B&B just for one night, the place was not easy to find, but then everything was so warmhearted, next time again. We had a small appartment, the livingroom facing the forest and the mountains.

We enjoyed two nights with Karen and Sean, and it felt like being welcomed into a friend's home ( friends with impeccable taste). The B&B is very modern, stylish, with many thoughtful touches including the scotch, Nespresso and fridge snacks, and the warm scones when we arrived. The rooms are on the small side but have everything you need and... More

Sean & Karen run an a amazing B&B - too perfect to merely be described as a B&B. The attention to detail shown with every thought going to make you feel truly at home with a hint of luxury. The hospitality, scones, home made whisky liqueur and breakfast would rival any 5 star hotel. Perfectly situated for exploring the area,... More

We booked Ardtorna because of the numerous God comments on the web and we were not disappointed. The facility is well equipped, the breakfast choices are great and we were offered delicious scones when we arrived. Every room has a good view to the loch. A true 5 stars B&B and highly recommended.
