    A three star experience

    Location in Dunkeld is good and beer garden located by the river is a definite plus point for this hotel. However, I would not rate the hotel as 4 star and would suggest 3 star fits the bill. Our room appeared to have been recently refurbished but the value of our twin bed room was £242 for one night and I didn't feel this was value for money. Other parts of the hotel a bit tired looking with lots of creaky flooring. Staff all very friendly and helpful and food was good but again not excellent. Overall, we enjoyed our visit but to be honest, would probably not return...

    Best spot in lovely town. Very helpful staff. When something went wrong they went out of their way to fix it. Breakfast was excellent.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel is in a great position. Dunkeld is delightful. Sadly I realised when we arrived that I could have got a much better deal by booking direct. Assumed it would be better via Expedia. The toast was AWFUL. Why don't hotels use toast racks which keep the toast crisp. Ghastly soggy toast like eating a towel.....

    Not so dog friendly but profiting from dog folk.

    Dog Friendly....well, only if they make money by it. £15 per day per DOG charge on top of your room charge if you take a dog there. Yes, you can choose to have your breakfast in a corner table with two other tables and have your dog with you. Yes, you get a twee ''doggy welcome'' pack with a fleece, towel, bowl and feeding mat. Arghhh, what doggy person goes away without a bowl and towel etc. Instead of the lip service doggy sweet extras, how about putting the money toward a safe dog area to run them and let them off lead? I am still waiting for the explanation as to what you need to do extra for two or three dogs than one to deserve a 100% or larger increase in cost per day for extra dogs. Personally, I'd give this hotel a miss in the future and find a hotel via Dog Friendly or similar. Run by dog folk for dog folk, not for profit but for convenience. We shouldn't be the profit margin for mediocre hotels, rather the consistent patronage for genuinely dog friendly travel destinations.

    The property looked nice from the outside and the lobby is nice but we were disappointed when we got to our room. The room and furniture are quite outdated. Very dog-friendly hotel.

    The hotel room was fine for somewhere to sleep, however it was quite dated in style. The room was noisy with a water pipe running through it, and also a lot of passing footfall in the hallway. We didn’t have breakfast in the hotel as it seemed overpriced at £15pp.

    Lovely hotel and room was exceptional for the price, nice to see a “pet friendly” hotel actually made the effort for the pet too not just sticking you in the worst room in the building, highly recommend
