“Best B&B Ever”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

We have stayed at a number of B&Bs over the the years and can say that Benvrackie run by Colin and Brenda is the best ever. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful above and beyond. Our room was modern comfortable and spotless with all the little extras that would put some hotels to shame. There is a beautiful sitting area at the top of the house which has super views of the hill. If you need to stay connected there is a fast WiFi .As far as breakfast: there is all that anyone could ever wish for to eat. Colin also excels at baking home made scones and pastries. I have never eaten so well!
We certainly hope that we can revisit this great B&B and encourage anyone thinking of visiting this area to stay with Brenda and Colin.

This B&B is superlative. The hosts are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The house is modern, bright and spotless. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and welcoming. The bathrooms are gorgeous with a fabulous shower. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with such an amazing array of choice, we were really spoiled. Little touches like homemade marmalade, jam, scones, pancakes and shortbread were just lovely.

We arrived here with 2 small children and were made to feel very welcome, Our only disappointment was that we had to leave so soon! We will be returning. Thank you so much Brenda and Colin, you made one night seem like the most restful break.

We found this via trip adviser and were not disappointed. A little out the way but not to far plus the views and piece n quite make up for it. Service was amazing and breakfast you are just spoilt for choice. We stayed one night over the Easter weekend and given lots if special Easter treats, personal touches like this is why you should choose this b&b.

We decided to visit some ware different and stay in Scotland rather than going abroad. It was my husbands birthday and we definitely made the right decision, this luxurious B&B is gorgeous with a great breakfast menu and very friendly owners. I would recommend it to everyone !!!

We were travelling to Pitlochry for a friends wedding and were unsure where to stay. We looked online for b&b's and found Benvrackie, it looked lovely and modern and was priced very reasonably. We booked online straight away and then found out we couldn't check in till 2pm, this posed a bit of a problem as the wedding was scheduled to start at 1:30pm so I sent an email via booking.com asking if we could check in early. I then decided just to contact the b&b directly, I spoke to Brenda who was lovely and very helpful, I asked if it would be okay if we could have an early
check in and explained why, she told me that would be no problem, I then enquired about local taxis as we would need to get to the Atholl Palace, she told me not to worry and that she would take us up in her car.

When we arrived at Benvrackie we were really pleasantly surprised, it sits in a lovely spot and has beautiful views all around. We were given a warm welcome by Brenda who showed us to our room, I have to say the house and the room we were booked into were really exceptional, bright, clean and very modern, the en-suite in particular was stunning! As we were in a rush to get ready for the wedding Brenda left us to it but brought us in tea, coffee and homemade scones which was a lovely thoughtful touch. Once we were dressed she drove us to the wedding.

The next morning we woke in a very comfy bed to the smell of breakfast being cooked, we got ready and headed through to the breakfasting area which was situated at the front of the house, again the room was bright and airy and looked out on to the mountains. There was a buffet set up with cereals, pancakes, yoghurt, juices etc, which we helped ourselves to, we then ordered the Benvrackie fry up, which, like everything else at Benvrackie was lovely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Benvrackie, Brenda and Colin, her husband could not have been anymore helpful.

This was the first time we booked a b&b as opposed to a hotel and I have got to say I was really happy with our decision. The room was stunning, the house was stunning and the personalised service we would never have received in a hotel setting.

All in all we would give Benvrackie b&b 10/10 and we will be returning later in the year for sure!
