Let me explain, I purchased an Itison voucher and emailed Ardtorna to seek dates which were available. Karen rang straight away and left a message stating dates, one of which suited us. I rang back and said my name and Karen replied “oh we get so many calls I can’t remember who I have spoken to”, which I did think...

We stayed for one night in mid-August. We arrived well into the evening (in off a ferry), but scones were kept for us (good scones, too) and there was no problem with our breakfast order being late. Spa Bath was great for unwinding at the end of the evening, and the malt whisky (of which there was plenty) didn't hurt...

Do you like modern design and art deco style? Then you must book this exquisite five-star B&B. Airy and bright rooms, no yucky carpets (halleluja!), everything squeaky-clean, fantastic breakfast (best we've had), not only the ubiquitous tea-making facilities but also a Nespresso machine that you're free to use, and last but not least a lovely view.
