When you're welcomed with a large slice of homemade cake you just know that it's going to be a great place to stay.

Beautiful house with fantastic rooms which strike the perfect note between luxury and comfort. Huge squashy soft towels and dressing gowns made me wish I'd brought a bigger suitcase to sneak them home!

Jacquie & Mike are pefect hosts. Always there when needed but never in an obtrusive way. It was like staying with good friends. I told them they should go on the 'Three In a Bed' telly show as even the most fussy of landladies wouldn't manage to find a single fault with their beautiful house or warm hospitality.

The breakfast was amazing. Jacquie's Eggs Benedict is to die for and tomorrow's cereal at my own table just isn't going to be the same.

We had a lovely stay here and couldn't have been looked after better! The breakfast was excellent, especially the eggs benedict. We highly rate this guest house and would definitely recommend!

Ard-na-coille is a beautifully grand old house hidden behind thick trees and a winding driveway, in a small village called Newtonmore - a perfect location for exploring the Scottish Highlands.
Hosts Jacquie and Mike could not be more welcoming. Greeted with the most delicious, freshly baked Victoria Sponge cake, you are made to feel at home from the minute you enter. The rooms are perfectly equipped and match the grandeur of the rest of the house.
The full sized snooker table in the living area was a great accompaniment to a pre-dinner drink.
Breakfast was scrumptious, with a large choice of hot and cold plates. The eggs benedict and florentine, go highly recommended, as well as the freshly baked banana loaf!
This is definitely one to visit!

My partner and I have just returned from a 10 day holiday and we stayed at Ard-na-coille for two nights - we wished we could have stayed longer. Jacquie made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. The house is beautifully decorated with elegant furniture and thick, cream carpets. Breakfast was delicous, with freshly cooked croissants, banana bread, a delicous array of fresh fruit and a full Scottish! Kept us going all day. We hope to return again very soon.

Ard- na- Coille is one of the best guest houses we have stayed in. We have just returned from a 2 nights stay to celebrate my husband's birthday. Fantastic room with four poster bed and stunning views. Attention to detail is second to none and nothing is too much trouble for Jackie, she even booked our evening meal in the local restaurant. Breakfast was outstanding and everything said before about eggs benedict is true! Delicious!! This guest house deserves every accolade it has already been given ,and more. Will certainly be back for some more wonderful hospitality.
