I've stayed in both the hotel and lodges several times now. On each occasion, either I or friends/partners/others have suggested a meal in the restaurant. On each occasion, without fail, it has been dismal at best. Those who appreciate fawlty towers will appreciate their efforts. The service standard is laughable. I would say that self-service would be better, but only this place could make a self service breakfast be a farce. You are nothing but an inconvenience to staff. The hotel is dominated by cheap dinner, bed and breakfast customers. If you want a cheap getaway without knowing what a hotel should offer or cater to, go ahead. The surroundings are beautiful and Dunkeld is a great little village. Personally, can't recommend this place in any way shape or form. Collapse

We stayed here for one night last week. Long driveway to a most gorgous setting for this hotel. Girls on receptions check in bit frosty. Beautiful decor on entering hotel very tasteful and traditionally Scottish. Immaculately clean everywhere. Lovely spacious room but overlooking the car park but that’s a standard room to be fair so the price reflects that. Lovely bar staff Irish waiter at dinner very polite and charming. Dinner amazing we had two courses each very reasonably priced for quality of food. Great Malbec! Bed comfy shower good. Noisy fan in our room 201! Overall a very peaceful luxurious stay. Beautiful walks and again the setting by the Tay second to none. Summer there would be magical. Breakfast ok had better but adequate but included in the price so..maybe I’m being picky? Delightful girl Natasha showed us Fisherman’s Cottage. We will be returning maybe to have a better standard of room in the more newly refurbished block. Would recommend to anyone. Collapse

We visited on March 11th for two days, got four seasons to enhance the scenery too. Was slightly concerned by recent reviews, however we had no reason to do so, we were met by extremely pleasant receptionist, we had pre booked our evening meal the time being confirmed at check in. Our room was lovely, view onto the Stag and riverside was a smashing outlook. Went to the bar for a refresher, excellent service with drinks brought to our table, at evening meal the pianist was in play, perhaps just a little bit noisy but we moved out to the conservatory area and could still hear him whilst being able to talk. Used the Leisure Centre, Spa and pool excellent while my wife took advantage of the Sauna/Steam Room. Staff were excellent and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting a most beautiful area of Scotland. Collapse

Having stayed for a between Christmas and New Year for what we hoped would be a quiet getaway we were very disappointed to find ourselves in a small old fashioned double room overlooking the noisy kitchen and spa fans. Following this stay our families chose to celebrate an 80th birthday with an overnight stay, we were reluctant to attend, however our second experience was far more enjoyable as it would seem that they have a whole section of new(er) rooms which they offer at the same rate. Althought our second stay was enjoyed without complaint, we couldn't help but feel disappointed that our first was so lacking and yet cost us more money. I feel their room standards should be made clearer and priced accordingly. Collapse

Stayed here a few times many years ago and always loved it so chose to return here to Dunkeld to celebrate my birthday.The hotel has been very sympathetically refurbished and the decor is classy and tasteful. The drive in is truly amazing and the hotel setting and grounds are beautiful. I had booked five rooms D B/ B Friday through to Sunday last November/ December. I met up with Emma from reservations to discuss rooms, meals and some requests. We were dealt with professionally and all requests were met. All our rooms were very comfortable,peaceful and tastefully decorated. The log fires were on in public areas and Xmas decorations were lavish. Dinner on both nights was excellent with a good and varied a la carte menu. Buffet breakfast was excellent with a variety of fresh cooked food and lots of food choices. The bar and lounge areas are very relaxed and we had three young children in the party who were allowed to roam freely. One big disappointment was the time allocation for the kids to use the pool in the afternoon. They are not allowed in before 4 oclock. Overall we had a fabulous weekend and I was so happy I had chosen Dunkeld House for my big celebration. Collapse
