Stayed at the Ivybank on the way up to a road trip, unfortunately we were delayed and didn't arrive till 11pm but Gary greeted us warmly and showed us to a very comfortable well presented room , would recommend the Ivybank without reservation.

Our rooms were lovely, the sitting room very comfortable and the dining room was transformed into a top notch restaurant in the evening. Dinner was...

Not only is Blairgowrie the perfect start of any Scotland tour, beautiful, quite small and rustic looking. Furthermore the Ivybank Lodge tops it all by delivering 4 star Hotel class in a bed and breakfast style. Gerry was the perfect host, friendly, helpful and always available. I can strongly recommend the place.

One of the best guest houses that I have stayed in. Superbly decorated and furnished room. The en-suite bathroom had a wonderful walk in shower. The breakfast was excellent. A real treat and would thoroughly recommend this guest house to anyone

A really comfortable, homely guesthouse. Rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished. Slept so well with lovely lavender scents in the room and comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean. Minutes walk from the town. Lovely breakfast. Will definitely be back to stay.

Gary and Nigel made our stay here excellent. The guesthouse is one of the best I have stayed in for cleanliness and comfort. We stayed here for convenience to Glenshee for skiing, but I would also recommend it for many other outdoor sports. This place is a definite 5star quality.
