Was so thankful this place could accommodate us after an abysmal stay at the nearby dunkeld hotel. We were met with warmth, charm and excellent customer service. Would definitely stay here again. Lovely folk, food and hospitality.

We were passing through on the way south when we stopped for lunch and we could not have chosen better than the Royal Dunkeld Hotel for a good light lunch. The menu was surprisingly innovative - my wife had a Black Pudding Scotch Egg and I had a Goats Cheese Bomb of risotto with the cheese in the middle. Both...

Brilliant and comfortable hotel. Room was a bit in the small side but the bar, lovely private beer garden and lovely delicious food served in the restaurant compensated for this. Also had a quiet comfortable lounge on the first floor. Some of the paintwork and decoration maybe a bit tired looking and in need updating but for me it's all...

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We do our best redecorating the bedrooms, the public areas as well as outside and have just spent a lot on refurbishing the bar. All is done on a rolling programme so bear with us. Maybe the next time you visit you will notice the next phase of decoration. The owners...

Enjoyed a four night break at this Hotel, a great centre for exploring the forest walks in the area. The bar staff were very friendly and accommodating and the meals in the "Bistro" were good, as was the service. Will definitely go back again

Good price, ok bar food and a good breakfast. But this hotel really needs a long overdue update and re-decorating. We stayed in 202 which was tired at best although clean and warm. Send them details of a good interior designer somebody please.

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review.
