“Outstanding B&B”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

My husband and I stayed at Ardtorna in April 2014. It was extremely beautiful and comfortable. Karen and Sean are wonderful hosts, and have thought of every detail. Breakfast was delicious. I definitely recommend this b&b.

This was our second visit to Ardtorna and we were not disappointed. Karen and Sean have managed to maintain their very high standards in terms of the quality of the accommodation and the wide variety of yummy breakfast choices on offer. They continue to be excellent, welcoming hosts providing superb advice and information. Guests are in their own ground floor wing and it feels like a small high quality hotel rather than being in someone's B&B house. Good luck with the Scottish Awards. You certainly deserve to be up there again with the winners.

My partner and I stayed at Ardtorna B&B just over a week ago and it was a very much needed two night break away from it all. We had chosen the B&B based on the excellent reviews and the location just north of Oban.
We were lucky enough to arrive on a sunny afternoon and were warmly greeted by Karen on our arrival. Our room was stunning and as my other half is a fan of design he was in heaven checking out the décor and colourful touches and quality furnishings. The view from our bedroom was simply stunning. Made even better by complimentary afternoon tea served by Karen to our room.
We both slept very well on the extremely comfortable beds and awoke refreshed to a delicious home cooked breakfast made by Sean. We enjoyed a visit to the Sea Life Centre nearby which was made even better by a voucher that Sean shared with us for a reduction to the admission price. Sean and Karen were also happy to discuss the varied options for restaurants in the area that we had at our disposal for lunch and dinner.
It was those little touches that made Ardtorna worthy of its 5 star B&B label, such as the complimentary home made irish cream and whisky served in the evening, the nespresso machine and the delicious handmade chocolates on our arrival. Also for me the array of herbal and quality teas at breakfast, were just fabulous.
Thank you Sean and Karen for you great hospitality and we hope to come back and visit you soon. Thanks so much for making us so welcome. Gillian and Neil, Glasgow.

Room Tip: We had a colour changing wet room which was lovely, but if we hopefully go back it would be lovely...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your 2 night stay with us at Ardtorna.

I was delighted to read that you enjoyed many of the design aspects of our place from the colour changing wet room to the ceiling to floor windows overlooking the loch.

It was super that you were able to enjoy some of the little extras that we offer our guests during a stay, from the warm scones etc served upon arrival to the unlimited complimentary home made whisky cream liqueur.

May I say that it was a delight to chat to you both, and we both look forward to welcoming you back for another stay in the not too distant future.

We had only 1 night stay at this exceptional B&B but it was enough to get us hooked, and we will be back! The accommodation is stunning, and the location quite beautiful. It is near enough lots of places that are so worth visiting. Karen and Sean are charming hosts and able to help you out with ideas of where to visit, where to eat etc if you are not familiar with the area. The breakfast menu is the best I have experienced anywhere on our travels. Karen and Sean have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. I have no hesitation about recommending Ardtorna if you wish to experience the peaceful and serene location, where you can sit in luxury at the floor length window in your room, and see some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.

This is a hidden gem which is run by a lovely couple, Karen and Sean. Luxurious accommodation with a homely welcome and stunning views. We would highly recommend this guest house and will definitely be back...hopefully sooner rather than later. The whole place is absolutely spotless and decorated to a very high standard. Worthy winners of many awards and no wonder!

Room Tip: I would imagine they are all stunning!
