Good location for town centre, friendly staff, lovely room, great bed and a delicious breakfast. We parked our car early to walk to Aberfeldy Distillery (Dewars) and on return quickly checked in. Staff recommended The Lemon Tree for dinner which we’d already booked.

Hello! And thank you for taking the time for such a lovely and detailed review! It really does mean a lot to us! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here. You mention that we do not do evening meals which is the case however we are currently looking at introducing an evening hamper for guests who are not looking for a big meal. So maybe if you come back and visit in the future you could sample one. Once again thank you and we hope to welcome you again. With best wishes Mark & Claire.

We stayed here on a weekend break with our 2 kids (14 & 11). The B&B was welcoming, warm and comfortable and our family room with large bathroom was perfect for the 4 of us. We spent a snowy day hill-walking and were grateful for use of the drying cupboard on our return.
