History of the hotel

Ardoe House sits on an estate which was part of a 1,000 acre parcel of land gifted to Arbroath Abbey by Alexander II, King of Scotland way back in in 1244. It has been described and divided throughout the centuries as the sunny half and the shady half.

Ardoe House was built by Alexander Milne Ogston, the son of a successful Aberdeen soap and candle manufacturer known locally as 'Soapie' Ogston. As well as erecting the fashionable mansion house, he beautified the whole estate with plantations. At the time, taking pride in one's Scottish roots was exceptionally important, and much of Alexander's choices for his prized home reflect this.

For instance, the architect he chose was James Matthew, one of the architects behind Drummuir Castle, Aldourie Castle, Ballindalloch Castle, and work on Cawdor Castle. The Scottish Baronial style chosen for Ardoe House was a popular style, first created for a house built for the famous writer, Sir Walter Scott, whose works fired up renewed passion for Scotland.

Ardoe experience

Alistair G, Ayrshire, stayed: November 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed Ardoe House. The staff were very helpful. The evening meal was outstanding. It was the best hotel food we can remember having. The restaurant staff were also knowledgeable and efficient while remaining relaxed and friendly. Perhaps Spapies could have been less expensive

Great short stay close to the city

Simon H, Morayshire, stayed: October 2018

Good sized rooms with very attentive staff, restraunt had great food only grip was the additional cost for the veg with your main course? Not sure i understand this charge booked dinner bed and breakfast as part of the deal free bottle of wine, main meal and desert so why charge for the veg?. Not a great cost but annoyingly daft really. That said food was great and choice along with desert was ample and very high quality 5*
Spa was good my wife had a facial and massage but i just had a swim and a lounge in the Jacuzzi.
Keys for the lockers could do with some? And either a pin or a band so you can swim with out fear of dropping it. No big issues with our stay and although I have mentioned this it had no impact on our stay and all in 99% happy with all would have no issues with returning for more pampering.
Thank you for a great exsperaince
