Certificate of Excellence

Everything about Arden House was excellent - beautiful location, superbly appointed rooms, very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, and Beth was so friendly and helpful. The only problem was that we could only stay for one night! We are already planning our next visit.

Just returned from an overnight stay at Arden House. Arrived to a very warm and friendly greeting from Beth. Accomodation was first class and very comfortable. Although we had booked for breakfast we were going to give it a miss as my partner had had an uncomfortable night due to an upset stomach, however Beth very kindly prepared a delicious breakfast almost 1 hour after breakfast time and could not do enough for us. Would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here, far superior to some hotels we have stayed in.

Beth, our hostess was so gracious and welcoming. We were over 2 hours late for check and she still had a lovely tray of tea and treats for us.
Rooms were perfect. Breakfasts outstanding!

We were warmly greeted by Beth, on our final night before flying out of Edinburgh. Arden house is beautiful, inside and out. Our room was more than comfortable, and the hospitality we were shown more than gracious. Our visit was brief, so we did not have a lot of time to explore the area, but loved our evening out in Linlithgow. This is beautiful countryside, just 20 minutes from the Edinburgh airport. We did not stay for the breakfast, but were treated to a very special arrival tea.

Although your stay was very brief it was lovely to meet you to both and to hear about your trips around Scotland. Hopefully the next time you will have time to enjoy our extensive breakfast menu and to experience a Scotland where is not always raining. Thank you for choosing to stay at Arden Country House

On the recommendation of friends we stayed 2 nights and can now thoroughly recommend Arden House ourselves. The rooms are beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The luxury bathroom was very stylish. The hospitality offered by the friendly owner was first class from tea and cakes on arrival to the fantastic breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Arden House is undoubtedly the very best B&B we have ever stayed at and we hope to return soon.

Arden House is a modern country house style property set in lovely woodland gardens. The rooms are large and the decor chic throughout. The fragrance of fresh flowers greets you everywhere! We stayed at Arden House from 26th May to 4th June in the Galloway Room, and Beth's attention to every detail made our stay a truly memorable one. On arrival we were invited to sit in the garden or the guest sitting room for tea and were treated to a wonderful selection of Beth's homemade cakes, all on silver service. The breakfast selection was way beyond our expectations, fresh fruit, nuts, cereals, and on each table a menu detailing the largest selection of cooked options we have every experienced. Nothing was too much trouble for Beth. Information relating to local eateries and places of interest was available in the guest sitting room, and if there was anything we wanted to know all we had to do was ask - from the best places to eat to the daily weather forecast. The house is ideally situated, about 2 miles from the historic town of Linlithgow, and you can walk alongside the nearby canal to the town, leisurely around 45 minutes. This is exceptional luxury 5-star B & B accommodation.

Room Tip: Our room was west facing and quiet, with a large bathroom en-suite. It was perfect.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed celebrating your 40th Wedding Anniversary at Arden Country House and that you had so much fun touring with your vintage car around the many historic houses, especially the House of Binns.

It was a pleasure meeting you both and being part of your Scottish experience . Hope to see you at Arden House for your 50th Anniversary.

Our host, Beth, was simply the best! The house was gorgeous, our room was amazing with so many little details that made it better than anywhere else. We were welcomed with tea and cakes and biscuits that were all homemade. We did not expect that much! Also, I have to say that the breakfast was so good that I almost lost my man to Beth, he was ready to stay there and live with her!

Much recommended, and when we go back to Edinburgh, we will definitely stay there again.

Our thanks to you all of the delightful review and for the gorgeous maple syrup which was absolutely delicious . It was a pleasure meeting everyone. Thank you for sharing the gorgeous pictures of your mum's new lake side home - an ideal house for B&B if I may suggest - the views are idyllic. Don's stunt work sounds amazing and we will look forward to viewing his website and reading of his new films and thank you for sharing the pictures of your home, your country and your lovely dog.

Hopefully we will get the opportunity to visit you gorgeous country one day
