Riverwood
Ranked #1 of 3 Strathtay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Based on the Secret Scotland itinerary suggestions we booked Riverwood. Visiting from Australia we loved the warm hospitality, greeting with strawberry tarts for afternoon tea and beautiful outlook over the River Tay. Our room Tay 2 was perfect with an incredibly comfortable king size bed, brilliant shower and great view over the river. Our hosts managed to get us a last minute booking at the very popular Logeriat Inn which was very enjoyable. While enjoying a superb breakfast we watched the many birds in the garden including some pheasants staking out their territory. We highly recommend Riverwood and the surrounding area is great to explore.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

This was our first visit to the Riverwood, and we will most definately return. Ann and Alf provide you with a first class service. My other half is a very fussy eater and they went out of their way to make sure he was catered for, providing him with food which was not on Anns delicious menu. So tyvm Ann n Alf for that, food was amazing Ann. We stayed in the suite, which had seperate lounge area, gorgeous!, room alone was massive..but i must say, Ann was kind enough to show us all rooms, and let me tell you they are all beautiful!. Stunning property, stunning views over the Tay. The Riverwood is the perfect getaway for a relaxing break. If you have not been here before then GO!. I really cant praise this place and Ann and Alf enough. Looking forward to returning already and we just back. Sharon and Scott

My husband and myself stayed here for 2 nights over Easter weekend. This B&B is fantastic. The room we had (Tay2) was large and the ensuite also large. Decor was to a very high standard. The owners are very friendly and when we arrived even rang a couple of restaurants to get us booked for dinner that evening. The breakfasts we had were to a very high standard and so much choice too. Location is fantastic and very peaceful (we sat eating breakfast watching pheasants, a squirrel and a couple of rabbits) and we had a really good time at Riverwood. We would definately recommend Riverwood to friends/family and would definately return again.

This B&B is the last word in luxury, comfort, eating, decor, fixtures and fittings. All are to an exceptionally high standard. The location is pretty stunning and the house itself is wonderful in every way imaginable. We had dinner on our first night and it too was perfect. We don't eat meat and that's all there was on the menu until our host Alan drove into Pitlochry and fetched something for us. What service! Breakfast - wonderful. We can't rate this B&B highly enough and look forward to going back. The only down side for us is with the place being so good, everybody will want to go there and we may struggle to get a room in future! Just kidding. We wish Ann and Alan every success. They have a real jewel at Riverwood.

Room Tip: They are all amazing, but a river view makes it even better!

Perfect location with the perfect hosts Alf and Ann. We booked 2 Junior suites which were fantastic (but all the rooms were of the same high quality) as was Ann's cooking - dinner and breakfast both excellent. Would highly recommend this beautiful guest house. Will look forward to returning.

Having now stayed here on more than one occasion, We have come to the conclusion that, when looking for the ideal retreat, the Riverwood offers the best of everything and can only be categorised as a luxurious bed & breakfast combined with the perfect home from home.
The location is ideal, being within easy travelling distance for those who wish to explore the region. It is also, quite simply,food for the soul …. The woodland garden…the river views… the wildlife, all of which can be appreciated from simply looking out of the windows, wandering around the garden or meandering along the riverbank. For those who choose to stay in either the Ardnagual or Tulliepowrie suites, these rooms also offer the opportunity to sit outside on their own private patio by way of French doors leading straight out onto the garden area.
Accommodation is clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds are supremely comfortable and the bedding itself is of a high quality. All of the little extras are available – towelling dressing gowns, colourful slippers for use indoors and a fantastic array of products which exceed the normal offerings of free soap and shampoo.
Ann’s cooking is second to none. She does not claim to offer frills and fancies but, instead, provides home cooking at its best. For those who are prepared to try something a little bit different, the additional extras on the breakfast menu are an absolute delight and if you have the opportunity to sample her cooking for dinner, it is lovely to eat good food without having to travel.
And last, but not least, Ann and Alf are natural hosts who appear to instinctively cater to the needs of their guests. They are, at all times, both helpful and friendly but may also vary between being quiet and discreet or more talkative and informative.

Room Tip: The junior suites offer an added degree of privacy with direct access onto the garden. Don't for...

Just back from a weekend at the Riverwood and wow we loved it. We were lucky enough to stay on a 'pink night' and dined in, Ann's cooking is amazing - highly recommended!! Breakfast was also gorgeous, high quality ingredients cooked perfectly. Ann and Alf are both fantasic hosts, friendly and very helpful. We stayed in Tay 1 with views over looking the river, we had a look in all the rooms and they are all equally stunning.
We will definitely be back, next time we hope to book the new suite on the ground floor, Alf let us have a look inside and it looks beautiful, with its own small decking area.
It is worth every penny, suberb value for money. Just a perfect place to relax, roll on our next trip!!!!
