A really lovely place to stay. Luxury all the way. Spacious, comfortable & beautifully furnished with generous hospitality trays & even slippers & robes. Carole made us so welcome providing complimentary tea & scones & even booking our evening meal for us. Nothing was too much for her, even getting up to provide an early breakfast so we could digest the gorgeous food before heading off to our Yoga day. I'd highly recommend Ardbrae if you love luxury, great food and great value for money.

Only had a short stay, however George and Carol made us feel very welcome, couldn't have been better the whole experience . Views are stunning, and the location is excellent for exploring the area. All rooms were amazing, very clean and lovely decor. We stayed in the luxury suite, massive room with superb ensuite. Everything you would want of a luxury suite and much more, robes, slippers & refreshments. Met with welcoming drinks and a tour of the property which is a very nice touch. Carole gave us a great brief on the local area and places to visit. Breakfast was lovely and the variety available meant there was something for everybody. Agree with the previous reviews we had read about this property and the breakfast was the best we have experienced during numerous overnight stays at different hotels and B&B's. This was a great experience and I would encourage you to stay with George and Carol at Ardbrae Country House if you find yourself passing this way. It is a superb location for a weekend break also if you just fancy getting away for some relaxation. Thank you very much George and Carole. Paul and Gail

Room Tip: All rooms are superb with great views, but for that little bit more, I would suggest you book the Luxury suite and spoil yourself.

Beautiful big house set on an elevated site boasting spectacular views of the Irish Sea on one side. And the rolling countryside on the other. On arrival we were met by Carole who made us very welcome brought us into a lovely sunroom and offering us refreshments. After unwinding from our journey Carole showed us the bathroom and breakfast room. And then to our room which was finished to the highest standard. Very clean and comfortable, with even the added touch of robes and slippers. There was also a complimentary refreshments tray, tea, coffee, water, biscuits and sweets. Carole was very helpful by advising us on where to dine that night, and even booked the table for us at Harrison's, where we enjoyed a lovely meal. Next morning we had an amazing breakfast, selection of cereals, fresh juice, fresh fruit some of which were from Carole's own garden. Freshly baked breads and cakes. A huge fry really set us up the day, 2 eggs 2 sausages 3 bacon tomato mushrooms potato bread soda farls, we didn't have any room for the toast that followed. By far the best breakfast we have ever had. We wish we had booked to stay for the whole weekend. Nothing was a bother for Carole, she was an excellent hostess. She was able to give us plenty of information on the local area and places to go. And not forgetting her husband George who was equally attentive and helpful and made us feel very at ease from we arrived. By booking Ardbrae Country House for a night away or two, you will leave completely relaxed and wished you had stayed longer. Thank you again Carole and George.

Have stayed for a week, whilst attending a family wedding deciding to make a break. We stayed in the suite which was outstanding. Excellent accommodation and breakfast. Carole and George are amazing hosts. Lovely quiet location.

Room Tip: Suite was well worth the money and is an ideal family room and big enuf for a bride to get ready in.
