Church Tower Conversion, Crieff, Scotland - Edge Of Highland Town Of Crieff
About john burke
We brought the Church Tower 8 years old, as we love the outdoors, and it is a real escape for the fast lane. We live in Ireland most of the time, but try to get to Crieff every month if we can, we love the seasons and changes in colour in the trees. I hope you like to come and stay at the Tower sometime.
john burke purchased this Castle in 2007

We loved it! Well appointed kitchen.
Beautiful place with great location but too expensive.
This condo needs a good cleaning. Radios in the rooms .. really?! Isn't it 2019! More TVs please -- not that you want to watch TV when you are visiting such a beautiful place. Like other reviews - FIX the stove or at least provide a guide to tell you what the knobs are for. Price when booked far in advance is too high. Hot water / tour of place when we arrived --- these were problems! More attention to details would be nice. For long stays, make it obvious how to have new linens or towels arranged. Crieff is a lovely town.
Hi Denise I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, we nearly always get a 5 star reviews from guests who stay with us, but clearly we did a poor job for you and did not meet your expectations, which we are genuinely sorry for. Perhaps I could response to some of your points in your review. We pride ourselves in having a spotless property for our guests, we are rated 5 stars by VisitScotland quality assurance scheme (yearly inspections). On this occasion our property manager was on holiday, after a long season and the Tower was clearly not as clean as it normally is, and you missed out on the guided tour of the Tower and how everything works, including the oven! You referred to Radios in the room, this is in fact a wireless music system which allows guests to play the same music throughout the property. I know you were in town for the Solheim Cup and would have appreciated TVs in all the bedrooms to stay in touch with the golf, but we are not a hotel. We do have a dedicated TV area, my wife and I prefer that TVs do not dominate the spaces and do not wish to have TVs everywhere, I guess it just a different point of view! It’s a pity you did not ask for fresh bedlinen and towels we would have been more than happy to supply them during your stay. Finally we regularly benchmark our pricing against other similar size and similar rated properties and we know for sure our prices are competitive, not the cheapest for sure but definitely the best value, when the whole experience of staying in a Church Tower is considered. Regardless of my comments above, we failed to meet your expectations and we apologise for that, I do hope we have the chance in the future to show you how much we care about our standards and our guests, and would be delighted to offer a nice fat discount if you ever decided to come back and stay with us. Safe travels John & Susie
Church tower in Crieff
This property exceeded our expectations. It had that ‘funky-wow’ factor we look for in a vacation rental.
Check in was a breeze, Emilia was waiting for us with a smile, flowers and a bottle of wine! She gave us the grand tour and explained everything and even let us check in early.
It was very tastefully and very comfortably decorated. Comfy furnishings are important to me (more than my hubby) and the beds, couches and chairs were all comfy and cozy. The apartment could comfortably hold 2-3 couples, although it was just my husband and I.
We ate in mostly from the Co-op down the road, but ate twice at The Meadow Inn just next to the Co-op. Food was quite good here and in walking distance so no worries if having a pint of whatever...
Location ideal for exploring much of the country. We were sad to leave, wish we had booked for longer, and we will definitely be back.
An absolutely perfect stay
What a marvellous stay! We've had such a wonderful week in the church tower. It is perfectly equiped and very clean. The view from the tower is amazing. We couldn't stop watching the landscape changing. Crieff is a very nice town from where we started our tours.
We'll surely come back.
Church Tower experience
We were three couples that had a fantastic time in this interesting and unique VRBO. We loved Crieff pubs for food. Close enough to the Highlands and airports to be a perfect spot for us.
Old St. Ninians Tower
Crieff is a great base for exploring Scotland, and this apartment is a wonderful place to stay in Crieff. Located just off the High Street in the older part of town, there are pubs, restaurants and food shops within easy walking distance. The architecture is stunning, with a modern home nestled within the exposed stone walls of the old church tower. We spent two weeks here, half of it with five adults, and enjoyed every day.
Crieff is 1 hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh airport
In the town of Crieff, with walking distance of some excellent restaurants
Superb location to explore "The Tree Country" of Perthshire, and to base yourself for a tour of Scotland
