I have stayed at this friendly, charming and very welcoming B&B several times before. It is a traditional stone built house situated in the village of Kingussie, perfectly situated in the very heart of the Highlands. Originally a Victoriana hunting lodge. It is now run by Valerie and Graham it's 7 guest rooms offer double, twin and single rooms. B&B and evening meals are available. If you are touring the area and are looking for a 'base' I strongly recommend Ardselma. The standard of accommodation is excellent as is the food both matched by the warm welcome provided by the hosts.
We stayed for two nights and Valerie was a wonderful host! One morning I did not have time for breakfast, so she had out yogurt to take on the go. Our room was huge and spacious. It was super comfy and our view out the window was stunning. Our room had an en suite and the bed was comfy.
A slightly challenging place to review in so far as it would undoubtedly be very appealing to some and perhaps not so much to others. It’s an old hunting lodge located a few minutes’ walk away from Kingussie and set in quiet, leafy grounds. It has a real “country” feel to it and there’s lots of mounted hunting trophies and suchlike. The lounge is very comfy, sporting a log fire and recliners and Valerie was a helpful and affable host. Not all the rooms have an en suite and some of the furniture and pillows had seen better days but the rooms were clean and functional. It’s an earthy sort of place which creaks and squeaks in parts so if you’re looking for shiny and flawless then it’s likely not for you. Breakfast was fine and covered the usual bases and it’s a very dog friendly environment. Our party was split in terms of desire to return. …
Stayed there while contracted for stalking stag with Graham Christie. Valerie went over and above to take care of us and made awesome arrangements for our stalk in the highlands and our stay. The place is beautiful and within walking distance of Kingussie, and Valerie will cook you a great breakfast and have a lot of auggestions for local dinner. The rooms are clean and very comfortable.
We had a wonderful nights stay here 2 weeks ago. The house is beautiful and the owner very friendly. Breakfast was great. The room was very large and comfortable. we did walk down to the town and ate dinner. it is a great peaceful town!
