Room was of a high standard - they were a good size and had a great bathroom. Hilary was also a great host. Breakfast was really good and we also enjoyed a drink in the cellar bar at night. We were on bicycles and that was accommodated well. This is a really nice place to stay.

The Merryburn was lovely. It is right next to the train station and less than a block form a bus stop so it's convenient as a base to explore beyond just Birnam and Dunkeld. The room was lovely. Hilary is great and will bend over backwards to help. Breakfasts were also excellent.

Hilary is a lovely, welcoming lady who couldn't do enough for us. She had written some sight seeing points of interests for us which were fantastic! The room was very comfortable, breakfast warm and hearty, and... More

Always happy to return to The Merryburn. Birnam/Dunkeld is a lovely, civilised place and this hotel is excellent value. Hilary is a hard working lady and deserves to succeed. Support The Merryburn and she surely will.

My friends and I stayed at the Merryburn for a special celebratory weekend. Hilary and her staff could not have done more for us. The unbelievable amount of food at dinner and breakfasts was just delicious. Much thought and effort went in to making sure all guests and all dietary needs were catered for. A very special weekend with many... More

We had a slightly shaky start here as there was a sign on the front door telling us to enter via the cellar bar, which involved a lot of steps and scruffy, narrow winding corridors - a bit much for my disabled mother with a case, but after realising the front door was actually open all along, we got over...

Also very good value for money. Meals are available and a good value for money. If you like your football when staying in the village the Merryburn is the only... More
