We had a spacious, bright and clean room with lovely bathroom. This is in an ideal location, just south west of Linlithgow, overlooking woodland and fields. The breakfast choice and quality were impressive. A gluten intolerance mentioned in advance was addressed through a separate and delicious menu with an incredible variety of options. The food was locally sourced and wonderfully...

The house is perfect in every way as are the hosts. Nothing is too much. When we arrived we were given freshly baked lemon cake, pancakes with butter and a delicious chocolate coconut brownie.

Exceeded already high expectations, Beth is the warmest host and caters for every need. Room is fantastically presented and clean and the location is brilliant to venture into Edinburgh and the other surrounding areas. Food was also delicious. Recommend without a doubt! No detail is spared.

Delighted to have stayed at Arden Country House again whilst attending an exhibition in Edinburgh. It's such a lovely peaceful place which is a welcome relief after the hustle and bustle of the city. As always I had a beautiful room and enjoyed a relaxing bath in the enormous tub. Breakfast was delicious, although it is so hard to choose...

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.
