We needed an overnight stop in central Scotland and we weren’t sure what time we would arrive, but knew it would be very late. We found this lovely and unusual place close to Scone and Perth and just off a bus route even though it was in the country. Perth Airport is a small but busy training drome for pilots. The older one-storey buildings have been converted for a variety of uses (there’s even an auction room somewhere in the complex), and a number of the blocks have been made into a cross between hotel rooms and motel rooms with parking very close. The office is staffed during the day and the advance booking and check in procedures are easy. You get your own outside key and there is a security officer patrolling at night so you can summon help if you need it. The en-suite room was basic, large, comfortable and clean with a television and tea/coffee making facilities. No noise at night at all and we were able to adjust the heater as necessary.
The big surprise here was breakfast, which was very reasonably priced and billed as a simple buffet. The choice range included cereals, fruit juices, bread (which could be toasted), croissants, yoghurts and other bakery products with no limits on how much you could have. Everything was fresh and two cheerful attendants kept up a constant resupply line. The breakfast room was bright and airy and made for a very pleasant start to the day.
This is at the very top end of budget accommodation and close enough to towns and villages for food and places of interest.
It might be important to add that the room could easily have taken more beds and there was an adjoining door to another room so this would be a good setup for say, a family party of mixed ages or a group of friends.
