We were invited to join Richard for a glass of wine in the evening and we found Richard to be a wonderful host with amusing anecdotes and also very informative about Iona. This is a very spacious place and the attention to...

Perfect bed and breakfast accommodation. Richard was the perfect host, everywhere very clean and fitted out with everything you could possibly need. Ardoran very convenient for the ferry right on the coast with wonderful views.

Following a mix up over ferry timetables we arrived on Iona in a very dreach state. Thankfully our host (the delightful Richard) offered us the use of the tumble dryer. The room was delightful, the facilities excellent and we especially appreciated Richard's "be quiet seagulls" dance, allowing us a lie in on the Sunday. Reminiscing about the Herb Garden whilst...

Our visit to this magical island, last weekend, was all too short. We were very fortunate to stay in this absolutely beautiful and peaceful haven. Thank you, Richard, for your kindness, care, yummy tea and scones and equally yummy breakfasts. We had the added pleasure of enjoying good wine and conversation with both you and your guest from Santa Barbara....

Having loved two previous visits to Ardoran House and the restfulness of the Isle of Iona as a solo guest, I was over the moon to be returning with my husband - a surprise trip booked by him for our wedding anniversary.

We had such a lovely time here that nowhere else on our trip could match up to. Richard has an amazing attention to detail, Ardoran House is beautifully furnished and lots of personal touches make it feel so special. Richard is a fabulous host, and manages to create a real camaraderie between the guests with the 6 o'clock glass of...

We had an amazing few days in this fabulous place - where to begin to review it?! It's not so much a B&B; more private spa hotel with personal butler! Having had difficult journeys, not only were we met at the pier, with our luggage carried and ourselves driven to the house (not far to walk), but dinner was booked...

Add us in as another voice singing the praises of Ardoran house. We had a rough time getting there as we missed the ferry from Oban that we would have needed to make the connecting ferry from Mull to Iona. (Side note to other travellers- make a reservation for the ferry! we actually got there in time- but anyone who...
