Arden Country House
Ranked #3 of 11 Linlithgow B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 August 2012

We have just spent another fantastic weekend at the stunning and peaceful Arden Country House. Everything was wonderful as usual. The coffee and beautiful home made cakes on our arrival were very welcome after travelling up the A1 from Yorkshire. Nothing is too much trouble for Beth who is truly the hostess with the mostest! Everything about this place is of the highest quality, you want for nothing! The breakfasts are truly historic I cannot imagine anyone not being able to satisfy their needs with what is on offer – the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon are to die for! Roll on next August!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad one - they are all excellent!

We stayed at Arden House for a long weekend as we were going to see the Edinburgh Tattoo. The welcome we received from Beth was so lovely after the long car journey and getting stuck in a traffic jam for over an hour. We were greeted with cakes and tea and were never rushed at all. The room was beautiful and so tastefully decorated. Beth gave us some places to eat that night which one of was the Italian and then the next day we were served a breakfast where we did not need anything else to eat till night time and the choices were excellent, my partner works away a lot and said he has never been given so many choices. I recommend Arden House and if you are going to Edinburgh you can catch the park and ride which is far cheaper than the car parks in Edinburgh

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.
