Thank you Nigel and Stella for a wonderful stay at Galvelbeg House. You couldn't ask for a nicer couple of hosts and a better place to stay while you're in the Crieff area. Whether you're a golf enthusiast or megalithomaniacs like Mary and Myself (that's someone who's passionate about visiting every ancient standing stone in Perthshire) this B&B is right in the center of things.
Galvelbeg House is a wonderfully restored 19th century stone building with lots of great architectural character and, importantly, with ample parking space (even with enough room to turn your vehicle around without crashing into anything).
Our room looked out over the very pleasant back yard and garden, but way in the distance were the Ochil Hills with a couple of eco-friendly wind turbine farms in sight. For two nights (wish we'd been able to stay longer) we slept comfortably and the en-suite facilities were perfect. As we're not big television watchers we didn't turn on the flat screen TV but it's there if you're so inclined.
Our breakfasts were exceptional and Nigel, as server-extraordinaire, does his utmost to make sure you've got everything you need while Stella is busy in the kitchen preparing that all time favorite -- the traditional Perthshire breakfast. They were also very helpful in suggesting where we could find dinner. There's an Indian/Nepalese restaurant a couple blocks away that they said was good and were they ever right. We got takeaway from the restaurant the second night and our thought was we'd just hide away in our room so as not to be in anyone's way. But Nigel and Stella invited us to sit at our breakfast table, use the table settings, and they even set me up with a pint of beer. Incredible.
Many thanks Nigel and Stella. And when we come back through the Crieff area, which is quite a possibility, we'll be sure to book "a room with a view" with them at Galvelbeg House.
