“The best we've stayed in to date.”
Reviewed 9 August 2012 via mobile

We were visiting relatives in the village with little advance warning. Jenny was marvellous, showing us to a massive double room which was very clean. Breakfast was generous -we didn't eat anything else all day. In fact the only person who doesn't think things are a high enough standard is Jenny herself. Knowing people in the village also gave us an insiders view - and everyone in the village that we spoke to told us we would be well looked after. Jenny deserves this guesthouse to be a success - this is her first season - and we will certainly stay here again.

Stayed here on my Land's End to John O'Groats cycle ride & this was a great B&Bs. Jennie had only taken over the business 6 weeks before I stayed, but she had already made an impact in terms of style & decoration of the place. She was excellent hosts and made me feel very welcome - a cup of tea & biscuits in the lounge when I arrived was much appreciated after a long day's cycling. The room was good, clean & comfortable. Breakfast was very good and there are some great views across to the mountains from the dining room. There are also some interesting features to the property as it used to be a bank. The property is well located with some good eating places nearby and of course the Falls of Dochert, Loch Tay & numerous mountains close by. I would definately stay again.

Drumfinn is very comfortable. Luckily in the beautiful village of Killin this house can be both centrally located near the breathtaking Falls of Dochert, and also quiet and restful, with its own parking area. The house looks old-style but Jenny,the new owner, has great taste- and cooks tastily too- and the house has been given an internal face-lift; everything seems lighter and softer. The previous owners were great too, which is why i returned- and found Jenny, who is kind, helpful and friendly. Way to go- so go there and enjoy!

We had a wonderful visit to the Drumfinn Guest House during our walk of the Rob Roy Way. Wonderful hospitality and made our visit to Scotland much more enjoyable. Hope we can visit again soon.

This B&B was great. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast tasty. The location is right across from the Falls of Dochart and it was a great place to start our exploration of the area.

Fairly dismal room with mould on the bedroom ceiling above the ensuite. Shower needed better cleaning - orange mould in grouting. Breakfast okay but no fresh fruit on first day - just canned fruit. Garden unkempt and steps slippery. Killin itself is beautiful

Reviewed 16 November 2010

I've visited Drumfinn before when the old host ran the place. There hasn't been much change to the place and the hospitality and that really is a good thing.

The rooms are comfortable and spacious, not massive, but it's a guest house and not your own home. Plenty of room for my wife and I to spread out.

Breakfast was excellent, I had the haggis one day but it was too filling so I skipped it for the rest of the trip - but there is enough to keep one going till lunch and beyond.

The hosts were excellent.

I'll be going back again.
