We particularly want to reward guests to make it to our door by means other than car or motorbike. So if you arrive by public transport or under your own steam, we’ll treat you to a mug of tea/coffee, a bun and a fluffy towel on arrival. People have arrived on foot, by bike, train, bus, kayak … go on … try something different.

Client Testimonials

  • Oct 2020

    “Here just as Covid-19 lockdown is eased and it feels very safe. Lots of care being taken by the staff to keep it that way“
  • Nov 2020

    “Every effort has been made to accommodate all the requirements of COVID-19 while still making for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Also appreciated is the commitment to being eco-friendly and the way in which this is made so easy for guests to adhere to.”
  • Sept 2020

    “It is really comfortable and clean with great facilities and in a good location. The recent Covid measures are really good so it feels very safe. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need.”
  • Dec 2020

    Always very clean, always very friendly, and always very comfortable. They have their covid-19 procedures down to a fine art but still manage to ensure that people have a lovely comfortable stay.
  • Oct 2020

    The hospitality and amenities provided were beyond my expectations, especially during the Covid times. I felt just as safe as I would at home; all areas were spotlessly clean and there are sanitisers all around the building. The kitchen and common areas were all accessible and very well organised for a safe use if desired.“
  • Oct 2020

    “Lovely comfy room. No detail is too small for them to provide. Even doggy biscuits for our four legged friend! Very close to amenities. … Beautiful area. Amazing trees and waterfalls.
  • Sept 2020

    I like the genuine environmental efforts that the owners are making. Very good value for money and they allow dogs.
  • Oct 2020

    Nights in Birnam are quiet and the bed was super comfortable. Location is superb; walking distance to numerous gorgeous local walks, the Hermitage (especially in colourful autumn!) and it's in a great position to explore the glens and Munros west of the A9.”
  • Sept 2020

    “Located a stone’s throw from train station and the National Cycle Route 77. Beatrix Potters garden across the street and the River Tay and Dunkeld Town within easy walking distance. Location an easy 5 stars. Hiking, fishing, mountain biking, canoeing. It's all within easy reach.”
  • Oct 2020

    “Lovely host Dot who made my arrival easy, beautiful building, loved the homely feel. Cleanliness top class with further accent placed on Covid precautions which were very much appreciated.”
  • Sept 2020

    “The two guest kitchens give guests exclusive use if you want to prepare your own food, with designated cupboards and crockery for each room. The two spacious public rooms means that there is more than enough space in the evenings. The owners really have thought of everything”
  • Oct 2020

    “This isn't a hostel... Its a quality hotel. The service is super friendly, the room is spotless. The decor is beautiful.”

  • Sept 2020

    “A fantastic surprise. £32 for an immaculately clean and very comfortable ensuite bedroom. Close to the 1st of many pubs and next door to a tearoom which served a large delicious full English with tea and toast for under a tenner.”
  • Sept 2020

    “I had an excellent visit and tbh you'll be pushed to get better value for your money in Dunkeld n Birnam area. Very reasonably priced for this neck of the woods”
  • Sept 2020

    “It's not easy to find places that are so welcoming for single (lady) travellers but this was ideal. The room was spotless, spacious and warm with a great en-suite shower. The kitchen and dining room were also spotless.”
