Good Hotel Guide Review

You can gaze out at the River Tay over breakfast at Ann and Alf Berry’s Arts and Crafts-style B&B in wooded grounds on the edge of a conservation village. It is a ‘fabulous place’, says a trusted reader. The interior is immaculate: remove your shoes, please, before coming in from a day’s fishing for brown trout on their private stretch of river, enjoying a complimentary round of golf on the Strathtay course just minutes’ walk away, or spotting red squirrels and pheasant in bosky glades. There are two double bedrooms upstairs. At ground level, two junior suites have glass doors to a private patio, while two suites have a seating area or lounge and doors to decking. All have a super-king-size bed, a coffee machine and mini-fridge, a smart bathroom with under-floor heating and Scottish Fine Soaps products. The palette is mainly white and grey with some clever use of darker shades. On some nights a home-cooked dinner of the best local ingredients is served – maybe beef fillet or lamb cutlets, salmon or sea bass. A ‘great breakfast’ brings fresh fruit salad, potato rösti, Perthshire bacon and Dunkeld smoked salmon. (Tony Hall)
