Merlindale B&B

Reviewed July 6, 2013

My husband and I found this charming home by accident and luckily Jackie had a cancellation that day. Upon arrival, we were welcomed in the most friendly and warm manner and shown to our gorgeous room. We immediately realized that this definitely was someplace we would like to stay longer, so asked to stay a second night which Jacky arranged immediately. We so loved our stay that we think of Merlindale as one of the highlights of an incredible two week journey through England, Scotland and Holland. What was not to love? The food, the hospitality, the other guests at breakfast and the beautiful surroundings were all beyond our expectations. Jacky even accommodated my request for non-goopy eggs while John entertained us with his Scottish jokes. If we ever find ourselves in this part of the world again, we will definitely make Merlindale a priority. Thank you both! Gerda and Gary

We stayed in the Empire room which has an excellent large separate bathroom but would benefit from an air extraction unit to remove steam and odors . The room itself has a small double bed and I nearly fell out a couple of times just turning over. Electric cable reels to feed the TV and kettle stored in two separate corners gave a very untidy appearance.
Breakfast is at the fixed time of 8.30 am which I found unusual but could be altered by arrangement with the owners. Yes I would stay here again but I would have a different room.

Room Tip: There is a room at the top of the house with a large double bed but it has a sole use bathroom acros...

We stayed a few weeks ago and are still raving about it. Trust me, we have high expecations and are often let down at b&b's at double the price but the owners made us feel incredibly welcome and the high standard of room furnishings, large bedroom and GIGANTIC bathroom with freestanding double bath was heavenly. We will definitely be back soon! Many thanks to the The Merlindale b&b crew :-)

PS - We have a 2yo boy who is well-behaved but like most 2yo's is into everything and they were great with him which made us so much more relaxed and happy.

This old house, built in 1837 has been beautifully modernised whilst maintaining many original features. Our double bedroom was very spacious and extremely comfortable. However, the bathroom was FABULOUS. Loved it!!!
It was communal dining at breakfast, joining in interesting conversation whilst enjoying a well cooked, well served breakfast.
The owner, Jackie, was lovely.Very welcoming.
We can't wait to return.
Thank you

Room Tip: Saw 3 rooms out of 4 availabe. All of an excellent high standard.

What a lovely place to stay, feels not like B&B but home. Friendly personnel, nicely decorated room and spacious clean bathroom. Crieff was one of the in-trasit points of our introductory trip to Scotland and we were extremely please to find such a pearl here! Will definitely come back!

We have been staying at Merlindale for several years, usually twice a year when visiting family in Crieff during March and October. From the first we were made so welcome and feel that we return as friends and not 'residents'. Both Jackie and John make every effort to make our stay comfortable and it is a total pleasure to be there. All their staff are helpful, polite and charming too.
Our room is comfortable and the beds, well! We have never come across any to match them - they are superb. The breakfasts are the best anywhere. Jackie makes her own delicious yogurt and the 'fry-up' - heaven - with a lovely variety of items looking so comforting and colourful on the plate.
Jackie was in the middle of a redecorating project when we were there in November and we can't wait to see the results. She has a rare eye for colour, so we anticipate the results with relish.
If you're planning to visit the delights of the stunning scenery of Perth and Kinross, or going west towards the Highlands, your starting-point or staying point could be no better than Merlindale in Crieff. Arthur & Pam Olson
