From check in to check out the standard of service we received was impeccable. The breakfast is a real highlight, it was excellent. I would highly... More

Stayed one night B&B at Ivybank in Blairgowrie. We had a stunning room, excellent hosts, comfy bed and a great welcome. Will definitely stay again. Breakfast was fabulous. Also loved the great attention to detail. For example; luxury bedding and furnishings and fittings, luxury toiletries, Nespresso machine in the room, and very fancy biscuits. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
