After what was our fifth visit to the superb Ivybank Lodge I can only say that it absolutely deserves the very recent 2022 Trip Advisor award(s) in the small hotel category of: The Number ONE hotel in the United Kingdom Number THREE in Europe and Number ELEVEN in the World. The best small hotel in the UK, what can I say? We will of course be back!
We stayed a the the Ivybank Lodge for the first time in March and we absolutely loved it. Beautiful house, beautiful rooms. Nigel and Gary are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. We had dinner on the Monday night and the food was fantastic - you must try the vegetarian haggis lasagna! There is also a little lounge where you can have a pre or post dinner drink. Breakfast was also excellent and great choice. Will definately return. If you are staying a night that dinner isn't available I recommend Little's just across the road.
Wow….our first visit to this exceptional establishment and certainly not our last. Infact, we’ve already booked a return visit! This haven of quality is the perfect antidote to disconnect from modern life. Undoubtedly, Ivybank Lodge, will be our new go to place just to chill and be pampered. The wonderful owner’s, Gary & Nigel, are awesome and are caring, warm and genuinely welcoming hosts. Gary does a superb job front of house and Nigel is simply terrific in the kitchen. Our breakfasts and evening meals on our weekend visit were absolutely delicious from varied & tempting menu choices. Both Gary & Nigel have such a great eye and attention to detail. Honestly, their highly professional, but unobtrusive charm, was simply excellent & highly impressive. The ambience of Ivybank Lodge is of a lovely bespoke, small boutique hotel, where the guest matters. A pre or post dinner drink in either of the two beautifully decorated lounges with some relaxing music playing was blissful for us. The lodge is licensed and offer’s an extensive array of wines, beers, spirits & liqueurs. Likewise, there is a very comprehensive wine list to accompany your evening meal. The six bedroom lodge has incredible interior decoration and is Uber clean with every amenity you may require during your stay. Ivybank Lodge is centrally located for Blairgowrie itself or touring the local area and ski slopes. We enjoyed some of our best sleeps in a long time thanks to the beautifully comfortable mattress along with the high quality pillows and crisp fresh bed linen. Honestly, like the rest of this awesome establishment the bedrooms are simply sumptuous. Bathrooms are equally well equipped with quality branded soaps, toiletries and lovely showers or bath depending on room category. The first class rooms also are equipped with tea & coffee making facilities and a selection of Tunnocks treats with various tea & coffee options too. Each room has beautiful branded bathrobes to relax in too within the room. Seriously, it’s totally understandable why Ivybank Lodge is an award winning establishment. We both loved it and can’t wait to return and that’ll be very soon. Huge thanks to the lovely Gary & Nigel for their warm hospitality, sightseeing tips & restaurant recommendations. Also, 10/10 to Nigel for his wonderful cooking at both breakfast & dinner. Well done to Gary for his friendly & professional service too in the dining room & lounge. We both loved our chats with Gary & Nigel. Overall, an outstanding lodge with customer focused owners & hosts. First Class and highly recommended. Ivybank Lodge excels in Blairgowrie.…
We stayed for one night and were so impressed by the decor, evening meal, breakfast and comfort of the room that we will definitely visit again. The hosts were so friendly and helpful too. Highly recommend you go!
What a place to stay for a couple of nights. Spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated and a delicious breakfast. You can tell that a lot of love, effort and time has gone into making this property an excellent choice when staying in the area. If you like fine attention to detail and comfortable surroundings, this is the place for you
