James Cottage B&B
Ranked #8 of 27 Crieff B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 9, 2012

This B and B is full of character! The rooms are comfortable and quiet despite being on a main road. The whole place is full of trinkets and pictures all of which have a story which just adds to the charm.

Michael should run courses on hospitality! He was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.... Including shirt ironing! He is very knowledgable about the local area and always has time to answer questions. We really felt looked after right from the first moment of contact, when michael called rather than email following my initial enquiry. There is a true and genuine warmth at James Cottage. Highly recommended and, should we be in the area again we will be staying there for sure.

We booked three rooms for our relatives to stay the night before our son's wedding in Crieff. This guest house was ideal because the large bedrooms could accomodate our grandchildren. Michael is the perfect host and is always attentive to guest's needs.

Room Tip: Some road noise in rooms at the front, but then we had the window open.

We had just one night with friends at James Cottage and had a great stay, very warm, comfortable and good breakfast. Michael was very helpful and gave us a few ideas on local attractions to visit.

We had a very warm welcome from the host, very clean B&B and breakfast was freshly made.

I have stayed in a number of places in Crieff and this was the most enjoyable. Would recommend to a friend.

Michael, who runs the place has a very friendly attitude and was very helpful to us. The house is clean and tidy with the breakfasts being very sumptuous. This is the second year that we have stayed here and we would do so again.

We enjoyed our one night with Michael. 10/10 for customer service, friendliness and the breakfast. We docked one star because it there is no car park, and Michael insisted we pay by cash, he didn't mention this until we were leaving. We had USA, UK credit cards and cheques, but he wanted cash. He did not offer a receipt so you don't have to be a rocket scientist to work that one out :). But, he is a nice guy and very friendly. We recommned this plac, but check with him first about payment!

Yes, James Cottage prides itself on being clean and friendly BUT for anyone to suggest that we are a cash only business is not being truthful one bit and these folk from Missourie are lying about car parking and credit card acceptability. We have private car parking illustrated for all to see on our front-of-house James Cottage B&B notice board and as for cards we pay, like all others, for the privilage of having such a facility for all guests. I [the owner] am hugely disappointed that such a guest could remotely be so hossible in their review given the level of comfort and service provided at James Cottage in the Higlands of Perthshire. I trust they will reflect upon their oversight not to see, or remotely ask, about private car parking if it was a concern!
