“Arden House, Gem of a Bed & Breakfast for cyclists.”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

My wife Susan and I have just completed the Lochs and Glens North Cycle Route from Glasgow to Inverness. We chose to stay at the Arden House in Kingussie after the third day of our trip. On arrival we were greeted by Jenny and Norrie and were made to feel very welcome after a long days cycling. With our bikes duly locked securely away we were shown to our room. What a lovely surprise, the room was spacious , spotless and delightfully furnished. A nice touch is that all the rooms are named after whiskey's and we were given the Glenfiddich room.Norrie pointed us in the right direction as to where to eat at night.
After an excellent nights sleep we were treated to the best Scottish breakfast which set us up nicely for the days cycling ahead.
After setting off on our fourth and final leg of our journey and about 10 mile into our day I received a mobile phone call from Norrie telling me that we had left a mobile phone in the room and offered to post it to us which we have gratefully received.
I would like to recommend the Arden House to anyone visiting the area ,you will not be disappointed. Good luck Jenny and Norrie we will hopefully be back.

We arrived at Kingussie very very delayed but Norrie and Jenny offered as a very warm welcome at our arrival. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Arden House and hospitality extended by the hosts. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the selection of breakfast choices is second-to-none (and all are deliciously cooked).
Just to top it up, Norrie and Jenny offered us a lot of useful tips on places to visit in the surrounding area. I highly recommend to anyone and would certainly love to go back.

We stayed at Arden House for 2 nights and really enjoyed it! Norrie and Jenny are perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they gave us good recommendations on walks in the area.
The room was perfectly clean, good size and well-equipped. The bathroom was spotless and also had a good size.
Breakfast was freshly cooked every morning and was excellent.
Arden House is a perfect B&B and we defiitely recommend it!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Arden House, our family room is lovely, warm and well decorated. Sherry and Whiskey on arrival was a great start to our holiday. The choice of breakfasts on offer were many and superbly cooked. The owners were great at letting us know what places to go and see in the area. It is a great base to explore this beautiful area. Would highly recommend it to anyway and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Booked the superior room which was very nice and spotless. Comfortable bed, loads of sapce with armchairs and a sofa plus roll top bath. The complimentary sherry and whisky on arrival was a lovely touch and very welcome after a day in the hills. Would certainly go back.

Room Tip: The superior room has a large bed, lovely views out the front and a roll top bath

This was a superb Bed & Breakfast! The rooms were spacious, clean, and well decorated. The breakfast the next morning was terrific. There was lots to choose from (they just ask that you let them know the night before what you want) and the food tasted great. The hosts were the best part. They were quite friendly and did their best to make sure that not only was our stay perfect, but also that we enjoyed our vacation as a whole. They provided us with scenic directions to the places we wanted to go and gave us suggestions of more places to visit. They even told us the best places in town to find dinner. I only wish that we would have had more time to stay there longer and explore all that the area has to offer. The B&B is located in a perfect location for exploring the Scottish Highlands.
