Great location, great amenities both on site and in the village. Had 2 cottages for a family holiday. Cottages were beautiful. An extremely well set up for all ages. Our nearly 2 year old loved the duck pond and the ducks.

We had a wonderful 2 night break in the Moness Resort 2 bed cottage overlooking the courtyard and we were very impressed with the cottage we received. We had a 2 bed layout with kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom in the double room and a twin with a separate family bathroom. They were modern and spotlessly clean. We also loved the upstairs living room with the big patio doors overlooking the courtyard. The open plan living and kitchen space had plenty of room, dining table and chairs and great views! The fabulous warm weather this weekend made it even more special! We loved feeding the ducks by the duck pond and walking 5 minutes into Aberfeldy centre, which is perfect. We also had an amazing meal in the restaurant that catered perfectly for our vegan needs with a separate 3 course menu option which was delicious. Only slight downside was the lack of prices listed on the special menu which would've helped, but the food was delicious! We also requested they remove the 10% service charge added to the bill as we wanted to pay the waiters for their tip directly! All in all this is our second trip and we'll be back! Collapse
One of the most relaxing stay's we've had at home in the UK

Prior to booking Moness I read lots of reviews some of which were very good and some fairly average and on this review I can only comment on the Hotel stay as we did not stay in the cottages. We had arranged to stay from March 9th 2017 for 2 nights and when we arrived at the resort we were immediately taken by the surroundings and how well maintained the grounds were especially for the time of the year. We were also met at the Reception by a very welcoming and cheery lady who was happy to answer any questions we had about our upcoming stay. One thing I will say that came as a bit of a surprise was that you need to agree to a £100 fee and the giving of your bank/card details on booking in at reception. This is done for the purposes of safety against any damage to your room and they do not take this money from your account. We were directed to room 27 and both my wife and I were absolutely delighted with our room and the space it offered and also the very substantial toilet and shower room with very large bath tub. The room was very clean and tidy and there was little if anything you could complain about. After we had settled in and sorted our things we went for a walk around the grounds and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and we knew from the outset that we were going to have a very enjoyable and relaxing time. We returned to our room and picked up the towels provided for use in the spa which has a nice pool and steam room and sauna and when we were there it was really quiet and relaxing. You can also make use of the treatments provided (massage, facials etc.) for an extra cost. We then sat in the cafe/bar upstairs adjacent to the spa and enjoyed a few drinks and some food which in my opinion was of a very good standard and also very reasonably priced. I had several pints and they came at £4 for a pint of Moretti or £3.50 for Tennants lager which was really good. I also enjoyed an Aberdeen Angus burger (with all the trimmings and chips etc) and this was less than £10 and very substantial. In the evening we went to the downstairs restaurant for our evening meal where it is ok to dress "smart but casual". You are met at the entrance to the restaurant by one of the waiters/waitresses and directed to your table. The meals provided were produced and presented to an excellent standard and the atmosphere within was really relaxing and enjoyable. As Hotel guests booked for BB&D we had an allowance of £27 each for dinner and as we didn't spend this on our meal the remainder was taken from our drinks bill. Anything over this can be added to your room and paid when you leave. We found the whole dinner experience to be excellent. Breakfast is presented as a buffet and there is an excellent choice of cereals, fruit and fruit juice and also some meats and cheeses provided. There is also a good range of cooked products such as eggs, sausage, black pudding, tattie scones and beans etc. As with buffets anywhere things can become a bit overheated if you don't get them as they are put out. Personally I enjoyed all of the meals provided and have few if any complaints. Aberfeldy can be reached by walking down a path from the resort and will take no longer than 10 minutes depending on your mobility. It may be quite difficult for anyone in a wheelchair or with walking disabilities especially on return but I'm sure taxi's would be available and would only take minutes either way. There are several bars and restaurants in the town. We drove to Pitlochry which (if you enjoy driving) is not too far away and very scenic along the way. We also drove to Blairgowrie which is also within reasonable driving distance and nestled amongst some of the best scenery I have seen on my travels. In conclusion, Moness Resort has provided us personally with one of our most enjoyable short breaks. Very relaxing, clean and tidy, great food, excellent and very hospitable staff, excellent value for money, stunning scenery and surroundings and all in all total tranquillity. More often than not the common complaint for people taking breaks in their own Country is that everywhere is overpriced and you are cheaper going abroad or elsewhere. I chatted with several people from south of the border who have been to Moness on more than one occasion and love the resort and the area and they say they will continue to return if it continues to provide the present level of quality at reasonable prices. We both Concur. See you soon Moness ;) Collapse

Spent a couple of nights in the 2 bedroom cottage with friends and a toddler. Very large had a great view of the loch. Beds comfy although duvet was a bit dire. Pillow cases were ripped but clean which is the main thing. Pool is fab, small soft play area. Play park. Staff are friendly and David in the restaurant couldn't be better an absolute asset to Moness. Great walks in area. Overall we had a fabulous stay will definitely return Collapse

I rarely write a poor review, and it is with a heavy heart I upload this – it is purely to advise others against experiencing such a woeful stay as we did. I would like readers of this review to know I've worked in the hospitality industry for 25yrs and am not the type to complain unreasonably. Upon check-in at 6.30pm, we asked about the spa and restaurant opening hours and were told that the spa had an adult only hour from 7.30pm-8.30pm & last orders in the restaurant were at 8.45pm (other local restaurants last orders were at 8.30pm too). We did look at visiting the spa straight away but unfortunately it was very busy with playful children - the adult only time is clearly needed so that people can unwind in peace! After a long drive from Edinburgh we'd been looking forward to relaxing in the spa but this was not going to be possible if we also wanted to enjoy a nice meal. We feel that this situation could easily have been avoided if the adult only sessions were extended forwards or the restaurant accommodated last orders later. We decided to eat out instead and asked for a local map at reception, but none could be found! We were also very surprised when the receptionist struggled to locate the telephone number for the sole cab driver in Aberfeldy...however once she did we found he was sadly unavailable anyway. We went up to our room (we think it was No.18), and were slightly surprised to notice that one of the chairs was dirty and torn which didn't give the best first impression. The room didn't have air conditioning which meant that we had to have all the windows open in order to keep the room cool – as we stayed on an unusually warm August night! The open windows led to two problems: when I took a bath that night there was a very unpleasant smell of chemicals coming in through the window in the bathroom & the next morning I was woken up by the gardener mowing the lawn on a sit-on mower at 8.30am! As it was we hadn't had the best night's sleep because of the hardness of the pillows; I did ring down to the Night Manager at 10pm when we discovered how hard they were, but he was unable to locate any alternatives. In the morning we went down to breakfast to find the staff completely unaware of our presence, as they had loud conversations about their personal lives right over our heads while they cleared used tables. They then proceeded to shout their own breakfast orders to the kitchen whilst we were still sitting trying to finish our meal, which to me is wholly unacceptable. After breakfast we spoke to the duty manager about all the issues we'd experienced, but we felt that his response was lacking and he offered no solutions or compensation. Then we finally got to use the spa, and it turned out to be such a disappointment! The door on the steam room didn't close, thus rendering it almost steamless! The Jacuzzi operating instructions were very confusing – it turned out that you had to crane your neck to see a light 6ft above you to know when you could turn it on! There was peeling paint on the metal air conditioning unit above the pool and in the men's changing room and there was a large amount of mould both on the walls and the ceiling of the changing rooms too. Everything about the spa just seemed tired and unloved. Had we experienced one or two of these issues we could have overlooked it, but the never-ending disappointments at every turn really did ruin our stay. Given my hospitality background I always like to give feedback, to allow a property the right to reply and the opportunity to put things right - so I emailed within a couple of weeks of our stay. However in this instance the email correspondence with customer services was as painful as the visit itself – taking 6 weeks and endless chasing to get a full response. The replies received were very stubborn in tone & didn't explain any of the problems encountered or show an understanding of why we were upset and what they would do to ensure others didn't experience the same. The only goodwill gesture the property director was willing to offer was 50% off another stay at the same property by 1 March 2017 (the resort is 460 miles from where we're based in London, in a remote spot you're unlikely to revisit quickly, especially at the coldest time of the year). When asking if there might be any alternative they could offer or lee-way in the timeframe we were told a simple "No". I would urge anyone considering this property to seriously reconsider and enjoy a stay somewhere else. Collapse
