My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. The setting is stunning, the hotel lovely and we had some great food and cocktails at the restaurant. Enjoyed some spa treatments too! Also well located for exploring the local area. One star lost as we were in a room in the newer build annex and the fixtures, fittings and some decor were quite tired (chipped, bits of laminate trim missing etc) which is disappointing for such a pricy hotel, especially as the public parts are so beautifully appointed! We also found some of the food and drink to be on the expensive side. This hotel is well worth treating yourself too but make sure you get a deal such as dinner bed and breakfast to get reasonable value. Collapse

Had a 3 night break here on DB&B basis from 20th April. The hotel was superb and great service from all the staff. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms great and the bar and restaurant areas were excellent. Great selection of gins and whiskies and the food (on a fixed price menu or included in DB&B) was delicious and well presented. Breakfast buffet style but still really good. There were a few extra breakfast options (with supplement) but we didn’t find that out until the final morning. The pool and spa were good but a little busy when we briefly called in for a dip. The highlight has to be the setting and location. The grounds are extensive in a fabulous location right on the bank of the stunning River Tay with deer roaming around. There would be plenty to occupy many people walking around the grounds and into Dunkeld along the river bank. The hotel organise many country pursuits including fly fishing, clay shooting and off-road driving. We didn’t utilise this as we were there for walking and there are so many options, many on waymarked trails (map available from tourist info in Dunkeld or online)that you can do right from the hotel door so there was hardly any need to use the car at all. Loch of the Lowes is about 4km walk from the hotel, great for seeing the ospreys, red squirrels and beavers. Only improvements would be add cask ale and replace the shower curtains with screens. Recommendation would to be dress reasonably smart in the restaurant. It warrants it and we would have felt under dressed in casual clothing. Will definitely go back and definitely in the top five nicest hotels we’ve stayed in. Collapse

Travelled down from Inverness for a family celebration in April 2018. The drive up to the hotel is quite impressive and gives a real feel for the county house. On arrival staff at reception were very helpful and the rooms were lovely and clean. We went to have a drink in the bar and were told rather abruptly to take a seat and we would get served shortly. We eventually got asked what we would like to drink. I asked if they had IPA beers and the waitress said yes. I thought I was doing the girl a favour by not making her name all the IPAs but I was shouted at by Neil from the bar that “there are 7 IPAs so what one do you want?” This wasn’t very professional. After he shouted the names at me the IPA I asked for wasn’t served. 2 vodka and cokes served with Diet Coke which wasn’t ideal either. Young female waitress saved the day by being lovely and pleasant and making sure we were catered for. Meal at night was fantastic , we all had steaks. Overall nice hotel but stay clear of Neil at the bar if you don’t want to be screamed at when trying to by drink at the bar Collapse

My partner and I stayed here for an overnight break on a Sunday in April. We had stayed here a few years ago and it was average but were keen to try it again as it has been renovated and we just love Dunkeld and the hotel is in a beautiful setting on the River Tay. The improvements to the décor of the hotel are lovely and the room we stayed in this time was in the main hotel building and not in the separate building which was good. The bar is expensive and we found that in both the bar and restaurant the staff whilst polite and friendly didn't give that great service. We ordered a bar snack (chips) which took 30 mins wait and weren't great when they eventually arrived. The waiter when we had our meal didn't seem to even know what he was serving. Just little things that do actually make a big difference to your stay could be improved upon. Our meal however was really nice. Our room albeit nice was an adjoining room and our neighbours decided to play their music pretty loud after 11:30pm. We spoke to reception and they offered us another room so we had to move late an night which wasn't great. I would check next time that we do not get an adjoining room as it's pot luck if you get noisy people next door. The setting of the hotel is fantastic so despite a couple of little improvements I would stay again. Collapse
