“Highly recommended - what a great find!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We stayed here just for one night as we needed a place to stay after a long journey from Lancashire, before attending the Glenlivet Whisky school the following day. We chose this place after reading the fantastic reviews here on Tripadvisor. So welcoming and friendly - on arriving we were asked if we wanted tea/coffee - and it was left in the lounge for us along with some Scottish shortbread. The bedrooms and showroom/toilet such a great size and traditionally furnished - lots of storage. Our room was big enough for a family, let alone a couple. The beds were comfy too. An excellent choice of breakfasts for the next morning (inc a veggie option). The location is also fantastic as the house has its own grounds - complete with red squirrels!

Room Tip: check out the website for the house for more info on rooms

I just cant be more enthusiast about my stay in this B&B: it was absolutely amazing.
The position is in a park 2-3 miles away from Elgin town centre. There is plenty of parking insite.
The staff is really really kind and helpful: i think these people love their job, because I have never seen such warmness and in all my life.
The park itself is very beautiful and we were lucky enough to spot squirrels and deers there.
Rooms are very clean and comfortable, the toilet is big and clean, the shower is absolutely amazing, beakfast is great, rates are very good.
If you come to Elgin by car, do not miss this place!

Ardgye House delivered in line with the claims it makes for itself on its website. On arrival, we received a very warm welcome, and were led up a handsome staircase to an astonishingly spacious room that was well furnished, with ample storage space, tasteful decoration, and so relaxing. With the Olympic Games in full swing, we were delighted to find that (for later that evening) the room offered a high-quality TV picture with excellent reception.
We were fully aware that, despite its grandeur, Ardgye House is a B & B establishment and NOT a hotel, and so (having already had an earlylish evening meal elsewhere) we took advantage of a fine evening to sample the grounds. No need at all to go off-site. For an hour and half we had the undulating woodland tracks to ourselves, except for the occasion deer and red squirrel. We were glad of our stout shoes - being working woodland and not a theme park or a Chatsworth, it is NOT open sandal territory even in summer, so arrive suitably shod if you want to make the most of what is on offer. For country lovers, the surroundings are truly delightful.
For those who arrive by car and in need of a meal, Elgin is close by, and offers an adequate range of eating establishments. Don't overdo the evening meal out, however, as the Ardgye House breakfast is first class both in quality and quantity.
We would have liked to stay at least one more night, but the establishment was fully booked, and little wonder. It was an uplifting experience, and represented excellent value for money. Highly recommended, and with enough places of interest within reach by car as to make an attactive, functional base for more than the single night that our own commitments allowed.

The Ardgye House was one of the few experiences I have had where the photos did not do justice to the spacious and elegant nature of our rooms. We rented the family suite which was huge with 12 foot ceilings and its own change room. Upon arrival we took some snacks out to the lawn chairs while our boy ran around on the grass. The deep, soft bed spoiled us for anything else the rest of our trip. In the morning we watched a whole host of birds at the feeder as the sun rose over the trees, and breakfast was delicious - I enjoyed both cold cereal and the eggs & smoked salmon. Genuine luxury with a very friendly attitude and no problems whatsoever reserving a room online from Canada.

Room Tip: The family suite is spacious and relaxing.

I do small group tours all around Scotland and I stayed here at Ardgye several years ago with a small group. We do not generally stay in this area on our tours but having remembered what a wonderful stay we had before I altered an itinerary specifically to be able to stay her again.
It was so wonderful to have a place be exactly as you remember it, only it was even better. Carol welcomed us in and took care of our every need. On our second night, we decided to stay in rather than go out. We bought things in town to bring back and share at the house. Carol provided everything we needed for a wonderful evening and allowed us to take over her sitting room to enjoy the evening!
Beautiful home, perfect hosting and one of my favorite stays. You cannot go wrong staying here!!

We spent four nights at Ardgye House B&B (June 25 to 28, 2012) and were delighted with the quiet location, the facilities, the food and the quality of service provided by our friendly hosts. Unlike some other B&B websites, the Ardgye House website contains a very accurate description of what to expect on arrival - a lovely Edwardian country house built in 1904 by a local farmer, nestled within 150 acres of private grounds.

The B&B is well sign-posted on the left hand side of the road when travelling west on the A96 towards Inverness from Elgin. We highly recommend this B&B and will return at the first opportunity.

A morning walk in the woods around the estate is a very pleasant experience.
