Although we had booked Room B&B through yourselves the hotel claimed it was a Room Only booking. I did forget to take the printout of the booking with me so couldn't prove it was B&B. I tried to phone your Customer Service that night but was unable to get through to speak to anyone as phone never answered by a member of staff. Although it was my fault forgetting conformation I would have thought the hotel had the correct reservation details. This was rather disappointing as the price was expensive just for the Room.

Stayed dbb on Sunday night on a special. Got to check in early . There was a problem with their water which meant we couldn't get our treatments as booked however where able to rebook for the Monday....we were able to use the pool etc which was good...rooms where nice although really hot for some reason , even without the heating on, couldn't open the windows so used the fan which was good during the day but couldn't keep it on at night as I need quiet, didn't sleep great due to the heat. The bed was comfy and bathroom clean. Dinner was really nice although one small complaint was I felt the service was too quick..we had two courses and coffee in 45 mins. I would have liked to have sat and chilled for a bit but there is a cocktail bar where you can move to. Breakfast was really nice , food very fresh and good quality. Overall the stay was lovely and would go back especially when the weather is nice as the area is lovely although not lots to do but within driving distance to tourist attractions. Collapse

First of all, there was no running water for our entire stay (except circa 45 mins when it came back on briefly). I realise that this was a Scottish Water problem, and beyond the hotels control so I will try and leave this element out of my review to be fair to the hotel. Plus, they didn't charge for the room that night, which I think is fair and the right thing for them to do. It did make our trip interesting and at some points embarrassing with no flushing toilets! We checked in, and wanted some lunch. The bar was full (it isn't very big) and the staff just shrugged their shoulders when we asked what we could do to get some lunch. They were just not interested in helping us at all. They said there was not any other place to eat in the hotel. So we went to the restaurant in search of help to find out for ourselves. The lady said that it was closed due to a function in the evening, however we could sit in a lounge next to the restaurant and they would bring our food to us. It baffles me as to why the bar staff couldn't have told us that. The food was okay, over-priced at £7.90 for a basic sandwich. Although we attended an industry dinner that evening with circa 150 people and the food at dinner was lovely. Everything seems a little frayed round the edges at this hotel. In need of some TLC. For example, the chair I sat on when we had breakfast was very dirty - food stains etc. Tables are chipped and scratched. As I said, just some general TLC and attention to detail would solve most of this hotels issues. It definitely didn't meet my expectations of a Doubletree Hilton. A bit of investment is required, and some of that budget should go on staff training in the bar area! Breakfast was good, haggis was absolutely lovely as were the scrambled eggs. However, for a hotel which has 400 rooms, one self service coffee machine is not suffice! 20 minute wait in the queue to get a cup of coffee to have with our breakfast. In summary, I don't think I would stay here again on a leisure basis. Maybe if I was up that way for work and just needed a bed for the night, however not for leisure. Which is a shame because it is a beautiful building with so much potential. With the right direction and investment, it could be so much more. Collapse

We had a weekend here with my husband's parents and enjoyed it very much - nice rooms, great location and lovely food. Halfway through the trip the water supply to the hotel was completely cut off - as we understand it this was totally outside the hotel's control. They dealt with it by handing out gallons of bottled water on demand, and the kitchen continued as normal. While this was far from ideal, we were surprised and pleased to get a full refund for both nights' accommodation even though the first night had been completely unaffected by the problem. Fair play to them: this was a nasty situation and I can't see how they could have handled it better. Staff were excellent throughout. Collapse

this is about our third visit to Dunblane Hilton. A long drive but the service and ambience make it worthwhile. Staff get it right! Friendly, welcoming. Food is excellent, as are the choice of wines and spirits on offer. Staff are friendly, making time for the whole family. Cookies and water for the kids. Lovely big rooms and cosy lounges. The Kailyard restaurant is lovely (wish we lived nearer!), elegant but relaxed, cosy chairs, cushions, so nice at the end of a day out. Fantastic breakfasts. Kids love the choice, hot chocolates on tap, etc. Modern pool which my husband and daughter used on two days. So good, none of us wanted to leave! Collapse
