Jessie Mac's is a very comfortable and clean place. From the superb common room (I call it the Drawing room) to the well equipped kitchen, it is well designed and kept in very good condition. I booked one night to escape my city life for a while and felt at ease here. I stayed in various types of hostels before,... More

Amazing customer service with staff who would go out of their way to help you find your way around the area. Clean and comfortable rooms with a very well cooked breakfast. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to stay in the area!!

Possibly the nicest b&b I've been to in my life. Just like home only better. Lovely, spacious rooms, immaculately clean kitchen, big sitting room with a fireplace. And two very warm and friendly owners.

I never give top marks because I always think there is room for improvement but I nearly did here. We tried to book a B&B but they were really unhelpful and as I had left it late I randomly picked Jesse Mac's and I am so glad I did. The service was excellent, from the panicked call the night before... More

This could have been my 3rd or 4th stay here, for my annual fishing trip to Dunkeld, and I can't think why I didn't review it earlier, but part of me says that some of the best things should be kept to yourself, and that's not fair to the owners who put such an effort into making your stay enjoyable....

Stayed here in August for a local wedding. What a lovely friendly welcome we were given. Felt completely welcomed and instantly "at home". Nothing was a bother. It felt like a hotel it is so beautiful inside. Immaculate and with an arty touch. Great sitting room to chill in and a really well equipped kitchen with everything easily found.Tradition old...

We had a weekend away with my parents who came over from Poland and we wanted to get some good value accommodation but good quality stay at the same time. I found this place on SYHA website and as soon as I saw their website I knew we wouldn't be dissapointed. We booked a private family room 4 of us... More

We stayed here as part of our John o'Groats to Lands End charitable bike ride. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. There was a very useful shed to store our bikes in. The building is beautiful and superbly decorated. We shared a room with a double and two singles which was massive with its own ensuite. The kitchen facilities... More

Excellent combination of hostel and b&b in a beautiful part of the world. We were met by Brenda with a pot of tea and fresh muffins, given the tour and dinner recommendations, then left to enjoy the vibe of this large, stylish house. We went for the b&b option (delicious!), but the dorms looked comfy, and the huge self catering... More

Made very welcome and my boys (10. 8 & 6) first experience of hostelling could not have been more positive. Good facilities, clean rooms and delicious homemade muffins to boot. Good walking & cycling territory. Went on a lovely off-road cycle along the banks of the Tay (the Inver/Fiddlers Path). Relatively easy (my 6 yo managed it) though more challenging... More
