We stayed just one night at Ackinnoull Guest House in Oct. 2012. I was able to confirm a room at the last minute, and we were actually the only guests in the house.
The parking area is right in front of the house, and would only accommodate three vehicles at the most. The B&B is on a busy street, but there is a parking lane along the one side of the road, making it a wee bit easier to pull in and out.
Our room was not on the street, so I cannot say if road noise would be an issue. Since no one else was in the hotel, I cannot say what the sound quality would be between rooms.
The room was a bit cold at night compared to other places where we stayed, but not frigid by any means. There were extra blankets in the closet for use.
The bathroom was ensuite and consisted of a shower, sink and toilet. Small quarters, but easily maneuvered. There was plenty of hot water in the shower, which is something that I appreciate. A hair dryer was available in the room.
The wi-fi signal was strong, which may not be an issue with many people, but my husband required the internet for online business calls, so it was important that we have a strong wi-fi signal.
The hosts were very friendly, and breakfast was adequate. We generally stay away from the big Scottish breakfasts, so I cannot comment on that.
The price was extremely reasonable, but take note that this establishment takes cash only.
Perth is within easy walking distance of the B&B.
We arrived for a Friday night stay, and would have benefited from restaurant reservations. We ended up eating in a Tavern with a very limited menu because every restaurant that we stopped into was filled and required reservations. Just something to note if you stay in the Perth area. Don't know what the attraction would be in late October to result in these places being full.
If you are a regular B&B traveler, then the Ackinnoull Guest House offers accommodation that is clean and very affordable with welcoming hosts to make you feel comfortable. I would recommend it for staying in the Perth area. It was less than a mile to Scone Castle from here. Quite convenient.
