Fonab Castle is a wonderful and historic building on the banks of Loch Faskally, by Pitlochry. It has been transformed by the Clark family into a fabulous and glamorous new 5 Star hotel. The hotel offers 42 bedrooms, including 4 suites and a luxurious Penthouse suite (a number with loch views). The hotel brasserie and lounge provide outstanding vistas of the loch itself and Sandemans, our fine dining restaurant, is a tranquil setting for experiencing exquisite cuisine and fine wines. The Woodland Spa at Fonab offers a host of pampering and relaxation experiences, with Thermal Suite, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, treatment rooms, nail bar and pedicures. We look forward to welcoming you to a unique experience.”

My son bought a voucher for my husband and I as he was deployed during Christmas 2019. We booked for 2020 Autumn, because of Covid this was cancelled and we rebooked for March 2021. Once again this was cancelled. We tried for a third time to rebook in August 2021 and was informed by a receptionist that our voucher was a winter voucher and we could book but the cost would be - £349.00 which would be an extra cost on top of our voucher. I tried to explain that our cancellation was out of our control and surely as a hotel they should honor the original voucher. She was not interested and was adamant they would not allow us to use voucher and we would have to wait until October 2021 to rebook. My son tried to speak to the manager and the same receptionist called him back. They are not willing to honor voucher, he requested his money back and was informed if we wanted to do this THEY WOULD CHARGE £30. This is a disgrace as we have another voucher for McDonald hotel ( which would hoped to combine on a long weekend break) and they have been amazing and have honored original voucher and are happy to accept booking at any time. My husband and I are both key workers and cannot believe how Fonab Castle has responded and that the manager cannot reply but allows the same receptionist to contact us on these three occasions.

Booked overnight stay for March 2021 as a Christmas present and paid in full. When hotel was closed due to Covid, contacted them about moving my date. Initially refused to refund or move my booking (this is not legal) and then eventually offered to move my booking but wanted an extra £150. I offered to move it to any day of the week but this was refused. Took 2 weeks and 4 chasers to respond to calls and emails. Not 5 star service at all.

We enjoyed an excellent weekend in Pitlochry, Fonab castle was perfect from the start with a worm welcome on Friday evening.Stunning views to go with breakfast and evening meals. The rooms were very spacious and extremely comfortable. Faultless.

Never before have I been provided with so much interesting information about a hotel on arrival. There is an ease in the way the staff go about their business of making your stay all it can be, a comfort that comes from being looked after by professional people who are at the absolute top of their game. The hotel is superbly maintained making it a joy to be in regardless of what the weather has in mind. It is my aim to return when I can to enjoy what the area and hotel have to offer, not a cheap away day but a bargain nonetheless.

We treated ourselves to a night away before Christmas and are so glad we did. All of the staff were lovely and helpful throughout. Unfortunately we couldn’t have a drink in the lounge or with dinner, or have use of the thermal suite in the spa due to covid restrictions, but the complimentary bottle of wine to have in our room and the lovely dinner made up for it. We will definitely be back to make full use of the hotel when we can.
