“The only place to stay in Crieff.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Merlindale offers everyone young and old a nice and relaxed approach to their stay in Crieff and Perthshire.
Rooms were very comfortable and exceptionally well presented including little extras such as fresh fruit, chocolates and selection of toiletries to pamper oneself.
A wide variety of choices for breakfast including a personalised "cooked breakfast".
We returned to Merlindale after fifteens years when we had originally stayed for our honeymoon. It was delightful to receive the same warm welcome from John and Jacky and hope that we will visit again as it is an excellent location with plenty to offer.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are worth it!

We found this delightful B and B quite by chance -- what a happy accident!
Beautiful rooms, thoughtfully equipped, with lovely additional extras - a bowl of fruit replenished daily, and delicious chocolates too!
As many others have already mentioned, Jacky and John go out of their way to make their guests feel at home, and they gi e the impression that nothing is too much trouble.
We have no hesitation in recommending Merlindale as a lovely place to stay, if you find yourself in that neck of the woods.

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw looked imaginatively decorated and welcoming.

Lovely and immaculate B&B. Rooms were spacious and bathroom with roll top bath and shower were bliss. Breakfast were delicious, particularly the homemade jams/yoghurts. Would definitely stay again!!

My wife and I have stayed at Merlindale, with John and Jacky and family, for many years - and have been privileged to see their lovely children grow from loving children to mature charming young adults. The accommodation is peerless, the food is exceptional, and the atmosphere of warmth and generosity of spirit has to be experienced to appreciate. It is a vitally necessary start to every one of our annual visits to Scotland - without which, we feel there is no holiday. Both Jacky and John deserve every credit for "going that extra mile" for their visitors.

Jacky and John made my stay awesome. They made me feel at home. I was looking for a b&b close to Famous Grouse Experience, Merlindale was perfectly located and great value for money.

Jackie and John were fantastic hosts. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We sat round the breakfast table with couples from USA, SA & OZ, and enjoyed merry conversation to accompany the huge breakfast.
The parking area is compact, but adequate for the number of guests. However, the first car out in the morning needs a few nifty manoeuvres to get through the gate unscathed. If your skills are not up to scratch, wait for someone else to go before you.
