Embrace the Moments

Step into a world of classic charm and modern comfort.

Located within 30 acres of stunning grounds, our 19th-century baronial mansion offers a warm embrace to everyone who walks through our door.

Generations of cherished moments

Deep-rooted in history, our story begins in 1244, when Alexander II gifted a piece of land to Arbroath Abbey. Fast forward a few hundred years to 1878, when Alexander “Soapy” Ogston (son of a local Aberdeen soap merchant) built the baronial house on the land. It served as a treasured family home until 1947, when it opened its doors to guests as a hotel.


The perfect venue for every occasion

A beautiful blend between modernity and tradition, Ardoe House offers charm and character for any event. Our six event suites also provide the perfect backdrop for small meetings or conferences for up to 600 delegates.
