We have just returned from a two night stay at the Rural Retreat for our first wedding anniversary with our dog. What a stay it was! The location was beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome. Gray was accommodating and friendly! Our room had a balcony overlooking a large garden. Breakfast was so tasty and really set us up for the day. I would recommend the Rural Retreat to anyone staying in St Fillans or nearby.

I chose this accommodation after reading some lovely reviews and researching the local area for its countryside and mountains. I hoped it would hit the big three, quality, comfort and hospitality, and I can say it surpassed all expectations! The accommodation is homely, spacious and immaculate. The bed comfortable and after a hard day in the hills the shower and bath were perfect, with the bath being big enough to house a small yacht! The location is exceptional and walking in and around accommodates beginners to advanced abilities. Access is on the doorstep with several Munro’s in the vicinity. The owners are extremely friendly and the service second to none. The breakfasts were perfect, with the star of the show being the evening meals, do not be deceived by the simplicity of the menu, it is superb, and excellent value, accompanied with a superb wine every night. They made our stay even more perfect by accepting our dog to stay and have an easily accessible area for those middle of the night doggy needs. I can honestly say after 30 years of travelling the world and staying a wide variety of accommodation, this is my number one B&B, and I will definitely be returning. Try it out, if you like a warm welcome, excellent food, and a beautiful home away from home in stunning surroundings, you will not be disappointed.

The Rural Retreat met and exceeded expectations. Gray's welcome was warm as he showed us into the guests lounge. A hot cup of tea was greatly appreciated whilst he explained about how to order breakfast and walked through the Rural Retreats facilities. The room and en suite were very new, modern and very clean. Gray was a great host and we are already thinking about returning next spring for a long weekend. Great B&B

We stayed in the King Suite for 1 night over the weekend. We were attending an event in Creiff so requested early check in, and we were graciously allowed this at no extra cost. There were also difficulties on our part when it came to payment (prior to arrival) and the owners were very understanding. We were greeted very warmly, given a tour of the house and made to feel very welcome. The room was absolutely lovely; very big with a balcony, sofa bed and double bed, as well as a TV with DVD facilities. There were also amenities such as gowns, towels and tea/coffee. We did not need for anything. If we desired breakfast in the morning we were to leave a check list on the table and this would be ready for us in the morning, this was also very reasonably priced. The house was beautiful and the bathrooms were amazing. Everything was spotless. Also there was a dog in the closed part of the house, which was very nice :) The only thing I would say negatively is that our room didn't have a lock. I understand there are more rooms in the house but that is definitely something I would have prepared. Also the mattress was very soft, and this is not what I am used to however we did sleep really well. Would 100% stay again, loved it.
