Superb bed and breakfast experience. - Rating 5/5

We had anexcellent stay with Paul and Helen at the Merlindale .This lovely couple who have just started the business could not have been more welcoming . Very comfortable room andluxurious en suite bathroom.We only meant to stay one night and move on butenjoyed it so much we stayed two -we had to havea second delicious breakfast. They provide extra littletouches homemade tablet in the room and I welcome dram. I cannot recommend a stay with themhighlyenough. We woulddefinitelylove to return. Thank you so much.


Hi Rosemary,Thank you ever so much for your very kind review, as you know we are new to Merlindale and receiving reviews is so important to our business and future customers. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit, it was a pleasure to meet and chat with yourself and Dale and we would love to see you back again soon.

Could not have been better! - Rating 5/5

This B&B was great! The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was large, quiet and nicely decorated. The host very graciously made us a reservation at the restaurant next door for one of our evening dinners. They provide breakfast each morning, which was delicious. On the morning we had to depart, the host even made us sandwiches to go since we needed to leave before the regular breakfast service. The hotel is in a great easy walk to most things in town, and a quick drive to the things that are just a little too far to walk. There is parking right in front of the B&B. We would love to stay here again some time.

Everything was Wonderful - Rating 5/5

Merlindale is very conveniently located both in the village and the country. Its a few 100m to the tower pub where the staff and locals are friendly and informative and the food is great. The very pretty village is a short walk down the road. We drove from oban in a couple of hours. Stirling doune and campbell castles are close to do in a day trip. And we drove through cairngorns park leaving after breakfast and got to glenlivet for the 2.30 tour.Merlindale itself is lovely. We had the blue room which is just beautiful. A long deep claw foot bath was taken advantage of. John is lovely and very helpful. We had A wonderful stay and i recommend merlindale very highly..... while john is still there.

Great B&B - Rating 5/5

Located towards the outskirts of Crieff. Large rooms, plus use of a library and lounge. A comfortable establishment, well run with a superb breakfast. John and Jackie were most hospitable and helpful. It seems they may be departing from here in the near future. Very easygoing and pleasant stay in a clean and tidy house.
