We stayed here for one night last weekend. We were pleased on arrival that there was a nice spacious car park & we received a very warm welcome from Val. We sat in the lounge area whilst checking in which was lovely & for the residents use. I was worried about road noise initially as I'm a light sleeper but... More

This is definitely a more upmarket guest house. We were shown to our room at the top of the house by Val. It was very spacious with a lovely bathroom & immaculately clean. Extra touches like complimentary sherry were appreciated. Quite a walk into the city centre. We had a lovely meal at Rocpool. Breakfast was very good with lots... More

In May 2015, my husband, my parents and I stayed at Avalon Guest House for two nights. My husband and I had room 5, a spacious king-size room which was nicely decorated with a good sense for detail. There are some rules (no hot food in the room, keep the noise down in the evening, etc.) but we did not... More

Just leaving after 3 nights in this fantastic b&b. First time visiting and will not be our last. Room spotless and perfect. Breakfast fry up freshly made and we were made very welcome. Will be recommending to family and friends. Looks like we have found the perfect b&b for our weekends away

Spotless, eye on details, friendly, great cooked breakfast, wide range of food, safe place to stay. Plenty of flyer available, including all the details you might be interested in-programmes all around the area. Cooked breakfast was 10 out of 10! Decoration is modern, stylish, but not "too much".

Again another fantastic stay in a superb guest house. Outstanding value for money accommodation of a very high standard. Both Val and Paul (owners) ensure that your stay is pleasant with a genuine warm welcome to their home. A must for those looking for quality in accommodation and ease of access to the highlands of Scotland. Derek P (Perth)
