Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 23 February 2015

The Townhouse, a boutique Bed & Breakfast in Perth, Scotland, has become the first in the city to be awarded five stars by VisitScotland.

The Townhouse achieved the grading after taking part in the national tourism organisations Quality Assurance Scheme which recognises businesses that meet and exceed the high standards expected by guests.

Jim Clarkson, VisitScotland Regional Director, said, I would like to congratulate David and Laurent on their 5-star award and for being the first 5 star B&B in Perth to achieve this. Not only is this a big achievement for The Townhouse, but also for the city itself. Situated in the heart of Scotland, Perth is a fantastic place to visit and having a five star B&B will hopefully encourage new visitors to come and explore the region. Our Quality Assurance scheme raises the standard of quality and service, ensuring businesses in Perthshire meet and exceed the high standards expected by visitors. I hope The Townhouse and its 5 stars will inspire others to strive for such results.

Having opened in June 2012, The Townhouse is a family business run by David Henderson and Laurent Moller, who after spending the last 26 years in the Caribbean, have settled down in Perth to open a small but special place for visitors.

Situated overlooking the South Inch Park, The Townhouse offers 2 deluxe park view rooms, 2 large traditional rooms and 1 king deluxe single room which all have traditional and antique furnishing, with modern amenities and luxury bathroom fittings.

David Henderson, owner of The Townhouse, said, Laurent and I are very excited to receive a 5-star award from VisitScotland, it is like getting the cherry on the shortbread. It is also a big thank you for our invested time and effort for Perth and it gives us the confidence to continue to offer this beautiful city wonderful accommodation. We hope this mark of excellence will inspire more visitors to come to Perth.
