July 2010. We were very badly let down by a hotel in Crieff. We made a hasty exit after negotiating the return of our deposit and made our way to the Merlindale where we wanted to be in the first place but had left the booking to late for getting two nights. We were able to stay that night and... More

This is the only B & B we would consider staying at in Crieff. John and Jacky are fantastic hosts who make you feel like part of the family they are so welcoming. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable with a lot of thought put into the decor. We stayed in the 'Blue' room which has a large... More

We were thrilled to have found this gem! From the friendly welcome, beautiful room providing ample space and well-appointed, tasteful decor to the delcicious dinner prepared by gourmet chef/owner, Jacky this was the perfect holiday experience. We were most reluctant to leave, as it is not often we've found everything we could wish for in one beautiful location. Travelling from... More

This is the second year that my wife and I, and our golfing friends have stayed at Merlindale, and to put it quite simply, this is the best B & B we've have ever visited. The hospitality of the hosts, John and Jacky, is amazing and makes you feel that you have known them forever. The rooms are very spacious... More

We stayed in the superior room (blue room). High standard of cleanliness and great size with massive bathroom. The bath was definitely the highlight, the whole room being very comfortable. A bottle of wine, topped up fruit bowl and chocs were a nice touch. A very warm welcome from Pauline on arrival and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in general are... More

I was made to feel like one of the family from the very moment i arrived. Invited to stay for Dinner which was excellent. The room was great but it was the experience of being with the family that stays with me. Will stay there again when next in the area and would also stay there with my family.

John and Jacky are probably the best host and hostess in all of Scotland. You are not a guest, you are family and it is a priceless experience; the stories told around the table and in the sitting room make you want to linger. Their guests become friends and their friends go back over and over. Spacious, clean rooms, goumet... More

We had a very warm welcome and shown to a very nice room exceptionally clean. Many thanks to John, Jacky and Paulette for making our stay such a pleasant one. Breakfast was plentiful and our compliments to the chef, the waiter was good too! Will return again!

We chose Merlindale for a short 2 night break in central Scotland. Its location at Crieff was great for touring the superb countryside and the city of Perth. Jackie & John are excellent hosts and the rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. Fantatstic breakfast sets you up for the day, as does the warm banter of hosts. A homely... More

Lovely big old house, book the room with the fancy bathroom if you can. Breakfast was tasty, large and very elegantly served. The owner is a chef so meals can be eaten in house on request, but it is walking distance to the town centre where there are a few restaurants and pubs. The owners and staff felt like friends...
