“The Best B & B so far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed for one evening in August here. We would have stayed longer but there was no availability and I can see why.
If you read earlier reviews detailing the delights of this fabulous B&B please believe them. It was fabulous. There was nothing which wasn't as good as it could be, from the welcome to the departure.
The room was very pretty, large and well appointed with lovely furnishings and everything to a lovely standard. The bed was huge and comfy and dare I say it, as good as my own! There was everything you might require and more in the bathroom from lovely fluffy bathrobes to eye make up remover.
And the food was virtually all home made and all locally sourced. I had tattie scones with my full Scottish and they were perfect.
Jillian and Arnaud are lauded on many certificates on the wall and every plaudit was well deserved.

the b&b is just a 10 minute walk to the city centre in a quiet and peaceful street.
breakfast is good and staff is warm. in our room, wireless internet was not working.
this was not good but we could use the lounge (available for guests) which has charme.

Room Tip: if you need internet, ask for a room where the wireless works

Many thanks for taking the time to review my B&B. I apologise for the free wi-fi connection not being usable in your room. I am glad you remarked about it as a negative of your stay, as I can see it being an issue for some, and will source a signal booster which should hopefully resolve the problem.

We stayed at Gilmore house, last week, for Scottish Mixed Foursomes golf week. I had read the various reviews about this B & B before booking in March, and as always, was hoping that the writer`s opinion would match my own. It did. Jill (the proprietress) could not have been nicer. She is not pushy like some landladies, but just ensures that you have everything - in fact over and above - that you could possibly want to in an establishment that is quite small in size, but not in quality. The breakfasts are better than some 5 /6 star hotels that we have stayed in, and I have NEVER stayed in a hotel where eye make remover is part of the bathroom toiletries, The linen is beautiful and everything is spotless. We had the smallest room in the house but hey, we`re only in the room for a little while - My partner would HOWL laughing if he saw I had said that as he has sat at every hotel that we have been in, sitting on the suitcases waiting for me to request an upgrade - Hope he`s not going to read this . I cannot recommend the accommodation, hospitality and attention to detail in this lovely home, highly enough.

Room Tip: If you have the option - Go for room 1. 2 second but don`t worry - even room 3 is lovely and so is t...

To this day, I regret that we had but one night to stay. An visions of returning to Scotland center around the ability to return to this lovely B&B. Gilmore House was my first night on my first visit to Scotland and it was wonderful! The rooms were update and recently and superbly remodeled bathrooms. The rooms were incredibly well-furnished and comfortable. We great enjoyed the sitting room at the mid-level and used it extensively. I regret that we didn't venture down to the living room until we were about to leave, as I noticed that excellent Scotch Whisky had been laid out! Breakfast was full and extensive with the standard Scottish fair with wonderful fresh fruit, French-pressed coffee with a wee-bit o'whisky for the coffee and oatmeal. Jill service was excellent and very hospitable. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Scotland. It may seem "out of the way," but the town of Blairgowrie is quaint, and a beautiful place to retreat.

Room Tip: Top of the stairs, turn right, room to the right, excellent!

An excellent B&B, well furnished. Bathroom spacious and well appointed - even bathrobes and nice toiletries. The twin room was comfortable - agood nights sleep. The lounge is comfortable and the reading materials were great. The breakfast was great with a great choice of cereals, cheeses and fresh fruit. The cooked breakfast was also very good. Jill was very welcoming and friendly. A B&B I will certainly use again and would recommend.

With regret we only stayed one night. We had a peaceful room, thoughtfully provided for all our needs, enjoyed the sun room upstairs with the entertaining collection of informative Scottish books. Divine breakfast, the best on our trip. Jill must be very proud of the place and deserves lots of praise for her efforts.
