A very warm and genuine welcome to sumptuous and relaxing accommodation. The evening meal was delicious and should not be missed. Everything was to a very high standard. I would highly recommend and congratulate the new owners Gary and Nigel.

We arrived to a very warm welcome from two excellent hosts.

Nigel's home made dinner was phenomenal and certainly not to be missed.
He was also more than happy to concoct an option to satisfy our fussy 3year old!

The breakfast options were plentiful & served with a smile

Our room was spacious & spotless. The Nespresso machine, artisan chocolates and a decent hairdryer were a welcome addition.
A very well maintained travel cot was supplied for our 7month old too.

A warm welcome when we arrived with our dinner served shortly after, as requested. Superb food in a very relaxing dining room then coffee served in the equally peaceful lounge.

The new management don't yet have a licence to sell alcohol but are very happy to serve any that you bring yourself until they do have one.

A very comfortable bed & room and a good choice of breakfast dishes.
Definitely worth another visit.
It was so relaxing to be able to pre book our evening meal.

Don't be distracted by older reviews which pre-date this summer's change of management.

We stayed at Ivybank Lodge for a week where Gary and Mark provided us with excellent hospitality. Both Gary and Mark are doing great things at Ivybank. They both go out of their way to help with even the smallest queries and their knowledge of the area was invaluable in making our stay the best it could be.

Mark's cooking is out of this world and I have no hesistation in recommending the evening meal to anyone lucky enough to stay at Ivybank.

We had the twin room which we found to be really cosy and well equipped. Everything we required was there waiting for us and Gary's attention to detail is first class.

Ivybank provides the ideal base for touring in Perthshire and the Cairngorms and would provide an excellent location for those on wintersport holidays at nearby Glenshee.

We wish Gary and Mark all good luck in developing Ivybank to the high standards they have already set themselves; they have certainly made a great start.

We hope to return to Perthshire in the future and won't be looking for anywhere else than Ivybank Lodge to provide a repeat of the excellent stay we thoroughly enjoyed.

Thank you Gary and Mark

Hi Andy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review and for your kind comments, it was great to meet you and Marilyn and we are so pleased that you both very much enjoyed your week-long stay at Ivybank Lodge.

We are glad that you enjoyed all of the home comforts and particularly enjoyed dinner each evening. We feel that Blairgowrie is a perfect base for discovering all that beautiful Perthshire has to offer and our central location within the town is very convenient.

We very much look forward to seeing you both again on your next Scottish trip when you will no doubt see some further progress in our development plans.

Kind regards,
Gary & Nigel (aka Mark!)

We have have just had a fantastic two days at Ivybank Lodge. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Our host's attention to detail was superb, with handmade chocolates, a fab choice of biscuits, a coffee machine in our room and a lovely selection of sea kelp toiletries in our ensuite. For breakfast we could choose from a variety of locally sourced produce which was delicious. Our evening meal was excellent, again freshly prepared. We loved out stay at Ivybank lodge and we will certainly be back!
