Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely stay at the poplars over new year. Very friendly owners and the place is spotless. A warm welcome on arrival and everything you could need in the room. The whisky and shortbread in the room on Hogmanay was a lovely touch. We had a fabulous hearty breakfast with plenty to choose from and would love to stay here again

I received the most friendliest welcome of any place I have ever been to for work or pleasure. The whole property was spotless and extremely well maintained. The breakfast was exceptional. Unusual to get perfectly made porridge. As you may gather I thoroughly enjoy my stay 😊

We loved our stay at The Poplars! Scott and Nancy were incredibly hospitable and friendly. Their warm welcome was followed by delicious breakfasts and constant thoughtful attention. They helped with advice on local activities as well as making sure we had everything we needed (for example, early morning tea - I’m an early riser and, thankfully, so is Scott - packed breakfasts for our walks and so on). The house is beautiful, historic, comfortable (we had our best sleeps in Scotland here) and in an excellent location. The view from our room was breathtaking as it overlooks Pitlochry and the mountains. The Poplars is very close to the center of Pitlochry and so easy walking to lots of shops and restaurants. Without hesitation or reservation, we highly recommend The Poplars.

Returning to The Poplars for the 5th time in 6 years we were surprised to find ourselves the 1st guests for the new onwers - Scott & Nancy. We shoulnd't have been worried. Although doing things "their way" the initial experience was the high standards of friendliness, comfort, quality and good food are being maintained. Back in our favourite room (1) with views over the town and hills The Poplars is in a great location for seeing many parts of Scotland.

This is our 2nd time staying at Poplars Guest House in Pitlochry and everything about it was just as wonderful as last year. Lovely large room with great views. Large comfy bed, great en suite shower, delicious breakfast and the hosts are just great too. Situated in a very peaceful setting and yet just a few minutes walk from the town. You really couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We shall be back next time we visit Pitlochry.

A relatively short one night stay for work. The short Stu I had was perfect. Nathalie recommended a great evening of all for me which was spot on. The room was extremely well finished and comfortable. The attention to detail from the moment you walk in is top notch. I will definitely be looking at a short stay in the future when off duty. Oh and breakfast was great too !!! Thanks Jason and Nathalie. Great team.

I stayed here when I was attending my brother’s wedding. The owners were very helpful throughout the weekend and nothing was too much bother for them. The breakfast was excellent as was the room we stayed in. I will definitely return if I’m staying in the area again.
