Eating

We’re operating on a self catering basis at present. We have 2 separate guest kitchens with lots of fridge, cooker, storage and work space. Covid safety procedures in place. We have a great wee local shop at the end of our block.

If you fancy a cooked breakfast nearby, check out the wonderful Chattan Tearoom (https://www.facebook.com/Chattantearoom) and the cafe at Birnam Arts (https://www.birnamarts.com). For more information on places to eat check out our Things to Do section.

Families / kids

We’re a pretty calm and family friendly place to stay. We have a travel cot - please let us know in advance if you wish to use them to avoid disappointment. We also have a high chair, plastic plates/cups/cutlery and a selection of games and toys. We have family friendly pricing too:

  • Infants in cots stay for free

  • Children (under 16) half price (£11.50 per night in dormitory rooms only)

There are 3 play parks in the area, ranging from 5 to 10 minutes’ walk away. See a map of local parks. For more ideas, check our page on Things to Do.

CANCELLATIONS (during Covid-19 period)

For private bookings:

  • If your booking is cancelled before your arrival date there will be no cancellation fee but we would appreciate as much notice as possible

Deposits

When making a booking (either online or by phone) you will be required to pay 25% of the cost as a deposit (so make sure you have your credit or debit card handy!). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch – our friendly staff are happy to help!

Deals

If we’re looking full online, why not phone or email directly as we may have deals or last minute cancellations?

Booking for Groups

If you'd like to book a room for a group, it can work out cheaper. Shared rooms can be booked for private use. Whole house bookings are welcome for clubs, weddings / civil partnerships, groups of friends etc. We can sleep up to 21 in total if all double beds are used. Whole house bookings are only available on a self-catering basis.  Sorry but we can’t accept stag or hen groups. Please enquire for details.

Costs for exclusively booking whole house:

PRICES - 2 night minimum

  • 2 nights = £735 - Cost per person £17.50 (based on sleeping 21 guests)
  • 3+ nights = £350 per night - Cost per person £16.66 (based on sleeping 21 guests)

Please enquire for details.

Deposit = £100 per night booked, to be paid on booking.

What If I have to Cancel a Group Booking?

  • Covid related circumstances - full refund or option to reschedule.
  • Outwith 6 months = £0
  • 6 - 3 months = 25%
  • 3 - 1 months = 50%
  • Within 1 month = 100%

Pets

All of our private and family rooms are suitable for dogs/cats. It's essential that you let us know if you plan to bring a pet so that we can allocate the right type of room. Up to three pets are allowed. They are welcome to stay in the bedroom under owners' supervision. Unfortunately they cannot come into the public areas as some of our guests may be allergic or even scared. We have decided to waive the pet stay fee as the new Covid deep cleaning processes will cover any extra work required and pets have kept us all sane :)

Dunkeld / Birnam is a great area for dogs in particular, and as dog owners ourselves, we're happy to suggest walks and to flag up the many dog friendly pubs and hotels.

PLEASE NOTE

  • Jessie Mac’s reserves the right to decline a booking at our discretion. Please note we do not accept stag or hen groups as we are in a quiet village with some elderly neighbours.

  • We ask that all guests respect their fellow guests and any damages or breakages caused by guests will be charged.

  • Self check-in is between 4 -9pm. If you are likely to arrive out-with this, please let us know.

  • Self check out from all bedrooms is by 9.30am. The kitchens, living room and dining room areas may be used until 10.30am

  • The guests’ kitchens are open for use between 6.45am and 9.30pm. There are kettles in each bedroom and a small fridge freezer in the dining room which is accessible at all times. Guests will be reminded a few minutes before the kitchen closes.

  • Jessie Mac’s reserves the right to refuse admission or to evict persons for any just reason.

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.”

    This is one of my favorite hostels. Great location, wonderful space, and always so welcoming.

    A little haven of loveliness
  • Nov 2019

    This is the third year we have spent the weekend at Jessie Macs - absolutely superb venue for us all - a group of 4/5 families.
  • Mar 2020

    I have already recommended Jessie Mac's to many others and my stay last week has only encouraged me to put the word around further.
