This was our fourth visit here & sadly probably our last. The hotel has had a substantial make over & looks amazing, the location is perfect , the river , the scenery, fantastic, but it seems to lack the soul that we loved. Some of the staff are clearly in the wrong job , we arrived in pouring rain at 9.15pm after a horrendous eleven hour drive & very hungry! We ask the receptionist if food was still available & she said yes , until 9.30, we rushed to the bar to order only to be greeted by the rudest bar maid I've ever encountered, she virtually shouted at us that service was until 9 & that she had told reception that & all we could have was crisps!! What a charmer! & unfortunately the delightful Taylor was like that the whole of our six day stay! We had to get back in the car & go to the co-op in town for food! On the complete opposite the ever fantastic Tom & Dot at breakfast really couldn't do enough for us! My other half is fussy & Loves whole milk on his flakes but the chef will only allow semi skimmed to be served, Tom was a star & actually bought milk himself & kept it in the fridge for him, brilliant service!! The food is fantastic quality & couldn't be faulted, our room although situated at the back, was great & we saw several of the wild deer outside the window! If you want to fish I would suggest you get a permit for £10 from the post office in Burnham & try from the opposite bank to the hotel, we did & my other half had a trout within ten minutes! I think there are a lot of staffing issues going on , mainly management & it shows . Perhaps we will return in a few years! Collapse

A lovely long weekend break with great weather in this magnificent country hotel was made even better as we enjoyed a nice comfortable room (albeit a little on the small side)overlooking the beautiful River Tay. The mile long drive up to the Hotel itself is very impressive as is the scenery all around. The wedding reception arrangements went very well, and the function room on the first floor was beautifully prepared. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was of a very high quality and a memorable day was had by all particularly I'm sure the American bride and groom. Collapse

There are many very positive things to say about this hotel but strangely there is just something missing. We were looking for a transitional Scottish country house hotel with the tartan carpets, wooden panelling, high ceilings, etc.. The Dunkeld House Hotel has all that but fails to give the ‘traditional’ feel, although the reason is difficult to pin down. The staff are generally good with a couple of excellent restaurant staff (Krystyan & Jordan) versus some bar staff with no inter-personal skills whatsoever. The rooms are nice. We had the General Wade suite which promised beautiful views of the Tay (only for the very sharp eyed) and consisted of 2 spacious and comfortable rooms. Restaurant food was excellent. It is my guess they employ at least one Michelin starred chef. Menu changes every night with a reasonable selection of extremely tasty and well presented dishes. If you go for the bed, dinner and breakfast deal, you will probably not be disappointed. Overall good but not quite excellent. Collapse

Lovely room looking out to the river and very comfortable. After my last stay I had complained about the bed and pillows but this time they were really comfortable so we will be back. The hotel was warm and welcoming and all of the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our meal was good and the wine by the glass of very good quality. Didn't use the spa this time there is a spa and pool. Good walks directly from the hotel. Very good breakfast to set you up for an active day. Collapse

Superb location with fantastic walks along the river. We booked a room at the back which was grey all over; carpets, curtains, bed covers, walls. Another guest described it as sleeping in the coal cellar. We asked for another room and were given one at the front with nice bright decoration and overlooking the river. This room was excellent. Bar prices are typically expensive so we took down our own cans and wine and sat in the lounge, but the security person said he had the right to take away our drinks and tried to do this. We retired to our room and watched TV. This was unacceptable behaviour from the security person and we gave this feedback to the hotel but received no reply. We were not in the bar but in the lounge and at no point did anyone say that we could only eat food or drink purchased in the hotel. Strange as we had bought sandwiches from Sainsbury for lunch and eaten those in the lounge without anyone complaining. The pool and gym were excellent. Overall a good stay but how the hotel can think that the grey rooms at the back are acceptable is beyond me. Collapse
