First impression were good. We arrived on a crisp cold November afternoon but had such a warm, enthusiastic welcome from Beth, our landlady. We had a spacious, warm, stylish ground floor room with bath, spotlessly clean. The Scottish breakfast is second to none. Thank you.

We discovered this wonderful B&B in April and loved it so much we returned in November. Once again the welcome was warm and friendly. The breakfasts are a real highlight - don't plan on eating for the rest of the day once you've had one. Accommodation standards are high and everything is beautifully clean and cosy. Our large & comfortable...

A mile or so out of Linlithgow, this is a lovely B&B fully deserving its five star status. Beth is an amazing host, from the tea with homemade cakes upon arrival to sumptuous breakfasts with fresh ingredients. And ever so helpful advice about where to eat locally and what to see. Thank you.

This really is one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. A big stylish comfy bedroom, a lovely bathroom with water so hot I could have spent hours in the bath :-) It's also the lovely little touches like locally sourced products for use in the bathroom that just make the stay even more special. And the best...

The owner Beth certainly knows how to run a superb Guest House. We received a warm welcome after a long day on the motorcycle. We were greeted and shown to our wonderful room then given a wonderful cream tea with Scones, cakes and biscuits (all home made of course). We enjoyed this in the lovely garden and were treated like...

A lovely welcome from Beth-we were exhausted from travelling 5000miles (all over UK) in 6 weeks-she ushered us up to our room to rest, and came up with tea & yummy cake-this was so much appreciated. Our room & ensuite, was lovely-spacious,stylish,airy & with a view. The house is a new build but old style-beautifully done. Close to Linlithgow with...

It is 2 years since we last visited Beth at Arden House, and as far as we are concerned this has to be the best B & B we have ever stayed in.

Accommodation was superb, breakfasts to die for and Beth, the owner, could not have been more helpful and friendly. We visited the area to see the Kelpies and were totally blown away by them, and thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Falkirk Wheel and Callander House. Thank you Beth, we're hoping to return soon.

Faultless B & B. Rated as one of Scotlands Best B & B's and rightly so. At 5 star, certainly received 5 star treatment. Rooms large, warm, well furnished and clean. Set in beautiful grounds with friendly helpful owners. Breakfast was truly out of this world. Would highly recommend this B & B.
