“It really is that good!”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

We will definitely be staying at Arden house again.
Only stayed for one night Friday (3/Feb) as we wanted to visit the Highland Wildlife Park, but I wish we had stayed at least two. The rooms were freshly decorated to a high standard, and very clean. Very good value for money.
For breakfast we chose pancakes with maple syrup, which we both highly recommend.

We usually stay in hotels, but after this experience with such friendly and helpful hosts we’ll look for B&Bs more in the future.

We were visiting the nearby Highland Wildlife Park and wanted a good value, clean, local bed and breakfast. Instead what we got at Arden House was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed, anywhere in the world. Norrie and Jenny are the perfect hosts and the room (we stayed in Tomatin) was lovely with a beautiful bathroom.

Breakfast had an excellent selection and was cooked perfectly.

We got good recommendations for dinner (the Silverfjord) as well as the top tip of looking out for Walker the Polar Bear's predilection for eating hard hats.

Would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for accommodation in the Strathspey area. Overall Kingussie is a much nicer spot than Aviemore with just as good access to all the local attractions.

Room Tip: Tomatin is a lovely room with beautiful bathroom.

I rarely give 5 stars to hotel but this place deserve it!

We arrived very late, about 11pm, but still got warm welcome from Norrie. The room is spacy and bed and duvet are just perfect. I've never had such comforting duvet before. High quality sleep guaranteed.

Plenty choices for breakfast, which is delicately served in a well decorated dining room. Jenny is very amiable and made sure we are 100% happy with the food.

I agree with out reviewer re host's good local knowledge. When we mentioned we are going to the national wildlife park near by, Norrie told us plenty stories to make the trip more fun.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed my stay there. Thank you Jenny and Norrie!

A very warm welcome from Jenny & Norrie. The room was spacious, warm and very clean. The ensuite bathroom plenty big enough. Breakfast was delicious. Our hosts' good local knowledge helped us find some out of the way places to visit. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Highly recommended. Norrie and Jenny couldn't have been more welcoming or more helpful. I stayed four nights as part of a business trip but felt like I'd gone to a home away from home, except the breakfasts were better! A great place to stay for either business or as a base to explore the area at your leisure.
