Our overnight stay was enhanced by excellent cask-conditioned ale, good food (which was well-presented) and a warm, comfortable room.

We stayed nearby at the Motorhome Park and walked here (half a mile) for lunch and a few drinks. The bar staff were super friendly and the food and beer delicious. I'd definitely go back if we're in Ardfern again.
