Another wonderful weeks stay in a warm and friendly B&B with great hosts.... Nigel and Stella .... Who have now become friends. It is a very clean and homely place with breakfasts to die for and not forgetting Stella's yummy home baking left daily in the bedroom to enjoy with a hot drink. We will definitely be back next year.......

Thank you for your lovely review, Liz. We are so pleased that you and Steve feel at home here. It hardly feels that long ago when you were staying with us as B&B newbies and this year you were back for your 5th time with us!!

A Saturday night stay in August - a warm welcome from hosts - coffee and delicious home-made shortbread in room. Room was spotless, bed cosy and comfortable, television and hairdryer in room and en-suite bathroom Delicious full Scottish breakfast in the morning. Good value for money. Would certainly recommend

We visited just for one night but were impressed by the very warm welcome from the owner, Nigel, the well appointed double en-suite room and the first class breakfast. We would use this B&B again if in Crieff again The only slight downside was that the WiFi seemed to be playing up - but that seems to be a common...

Ian, Many thanks for your review, good to hear you enjoyed your short stay with us. Apologies about the Wi-Fi, it normally works OK, although not the same speed as in the big cities! Since the Ryder Cup in 2014 we now have 4G in Crieff...!!! Nigel & Stella

Galvelbeg was ok, however was disappointed in the fact the the bed was too short (I'm 6ft) and my feet hung out of the end. Quite a noisy road and you can hear everyone else in the building especially at night. But gave us £115 off the bill, so far enough.

I was blown away but the courtesy shown to us during our visit on Friday evening. The room was exceptionally clean and well presented the host was very informative and friendly and the breakfast was not running about the plate in saturated fat. Well done.
