Reviewed 2 August 2015 via mobile

Loved this location and lovely staff. Less than five minutes from the town center. I love the facility and has a beautiful view in the back. Rooms are nice but I didn't care for the bed (firm) and pillows (too thin). We still had a great experience here and would go back.

Room a good size. You go downstairs as the house is built on a slope and rooms are still ground floor. Patio door to lawn with lovely riverside views. Nice seating area on decking overhanging the water. Fishing available. Decor a bit old fashioned, all very 1980s. But clean and well kept. Breakfast was fine. Not huge choice and no...

This accommodation is purpose built with spacious rooms and the style of a small hotel. Included are gym facilities and sauna, as well as a guest sitting room and dining room. Breakfast was extra, but well presented and served quickly and in a friendly fashion. While not having the character of an older property, staff are friendly and helpful and...

Room and facilities absolutely top notch.The host recommended the Poets bar for our evening meal which was absolutely fabulous as well. Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night. Ardilaun ticked all our needs in cleanliness , facilities and neatness. Breakfast was lovely as well. Could not fault anything.

I just stayed for one day in this guest house. The experience was very good. Importantly this guesthouse was managed and maintained by the owner of this. So they take much care on the guest staying here. And very safe place to stay and lovely atmosphere. Don't miss.
