Arden House
Ranked #1 of 23 Kingussie B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 February 2012

A last minute decision to jump in the car and take a few days out meant we needed somewhere to stay. A quick search and a few reviews read later we decided to stay in Kingussie at Arden House. We were not disappointed.

The location was perfect, easy to find and close to all the local amenities. As we were heading up to Aviemore for a few walks it was an ideal location and only a short drive away.

Our hosts gave us plenty of information and advice on places to visit and eat.

It was perfect.

We especially loved our room (we stayed in Tomatin) which had an en-suite with a roll top bath - perfect to unwind after a day of walking.

The breakfasts were wonderful, prepared to a high standard and piping hot, preparing us for our long day of walks.

Our hosts were wonderful! They offered advise, recommendations and were always available, kind and made our stay that extra bit special. On arrival we were made to feel warm and very welcome. We had decided to go for a walk locally and were given advice on a good walk that would take in the local surroundings. We asked for recommendations as to were to eat and the suggested venue, the Silverfjord, did not disappoint.

We will certainly be going back to stay again. This was a perfect and amazing short break made all the better by our hosts and their wonderful B&B.

Room Tip: We stayed in Tomatin which was stunning with an amazing en-suite.

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.
