“Delightful B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

My fiancé, my parents and I visited Pitlochry this weekend as my sister was performing at the Festival Theatre there. My mother found Ellangowan House online and booked it as accommodation for the four of us for the two nights we were staying there, and it must be said we had the most delightful weekend.

We took up two of the three rooms in the cosy B&B, both of which were beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. All the amenities you could want were provided (tea, coffee, hairdryers, cots etc.) and the rooms felt very cosy and had a lot of personality. The beds were extremely comfortable and my mother, who usually sleeps very badly in any bed other than her own, reported the most restful and comfortable night's sleep that she had ever had in a hotel bed!

The B&B had a very homely atmosphere, and the owner, Marie, was lovely. The breakfast we had both mornings was superb- I tried both scrambled and poached eggs, both of which were cooked to perfection, and I am reliably informed (as I am a vegetarian) that the full English breakfast was also very good. The only very small downside was that there wasn't any wifi, although it wasn't a big issue as my partner and I both have smart phones.

The town itself is lovely, and the view from the hotel was beautiful. For anyone visiting Pitlochry or the surrounding area, I would recommend a tour of the Edradour whisky distillery. I myself am not a whisky drinker but found the whole thing fascinating. We are definitely considering coming back and staying again!

We are a Swedish couple in our fifties.We have stayed several times at Ellangowan House,sometimes with friends and other times with children and grandchildren. We have always had a warm welcome,outstanding service and great advice about were to go and what to see.
The rooms are cosy,clean and spacious. The Mansells have always been very nice and helpful with everything.
We really feel that this bed and breakfast is a home away from home and will be back again very soon.

We can't fault this place in any way. Our upstairs room was the largest double room we have seen in any of the b&bs or hotels we have stayed in. There was plenty of storage and we even noticed a childs travel cot in wardrobe so thats handy for anyone with kids. Bathroom was also spacious and lovely. Superb view of local scenery from room window.

The owners were a lovely couple and eager to help. My partner missed breakfast both mornings and i was allowed to take up tea and toast to room to eat later. They couldnt have been more helpful. My breakfast was lovely both mornings. Dining room and surrounding area can be used at any time

We came across this lovely guest house by chance, which is centrally located. We had a beautiful ensuite room with views looking out across the town and hills of Pitlochry. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts very nice and helpful. Would certainly come again.

Ellangowan is a very beautiful B&B in a quite area of Pitlochry within easy walking distance of the main bars and shops. Our first floor room was excellent, very large with a monster big bathroom and excellent view. Many of the popular Pitlochry walks can be started from the steps of the B&B making it a great place to stay. Fantastic breakfast and great patio area overlooking the gardens to sit and relax at the end of a hard day on holiday. A true home from home experience we would highly recommend.
