I stayed at the MacDonald Loch Rannoch Hotel with my family. What a splendid place to stay. Our daughter was getting married in Pitlochry and we needed to stay somewhere fairly close by. This hotel was certainly the perfect choice. The location was delightful, the staff were superb, so very helpful, catering for particular dietary requirements. The atmosphere was so... More

We stayed here for two nights as a 5pm.com promotion. I've no idea about prices normally for this hotel but I'd have been happy to pay more. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. We had a room on the 1st floor. The room itself was fine, as expected and clean. Sure it's a little dated (as is much of the... More

A fantastic hotel in a fantastic location. Room was huge, clean and comfortable. Food was amazing in both restaurants, also reasonably priced. Some may disagree but the standard/quality of the food more than reflects the cost. The staff were excellent. Competent, friendly and courteous. Excellent value, I can safely say we will be returning. The road from the A9 to... More

we stayed in the resort which overlooked Loch Rannoch.It was very peaceful .Our apartment was self catering- so we cooked some basic meals and breakfast. Grocerry can be ordered beforehand and delivered to the resort which we did. We went on long walks along the Loch and drove right up to the station which is the last point to which... More

Hotel dated, fiancée visited around 10 years ago and it hadn't been updated at all. On our last night we were asked to move from sofas to a table to eat a 'snack' as we were told other residents would want the sofas after eating in the dining room (we had spent a large amount of money in the bar...

I have stayed at MacDonald Hotels before and was looking particularly forward to staying here purely on its fantastic location. Paying £14.95 for a very average haddock and chips is shocking (similar to Wetherspoons standard) The fish was nice but to get frozen peas out of a bag and non homemade chips for that price is poor. Got a delightful... More

The exterior definitely needed some repair as the exterior wood eg gables was rotting. It was up to MacDonald’s standards inside however. The evening meals were quite pricey so we did not eat there and cannot comment. The tv in our room was all snowy. The receptionist said that there was wi-fi connection in the lounge area only and that... More

Great hotel, amazing views and the staff went above and beyond to help with all information and friendliness! The bar in the evening was a delight to sit at with such a great atmosphere. Lovely setting with the loch view bedroom.

Stunning views from our room. Staff very friendly as well as helpful. .Bar restaurant tended to be noisy but main restaurant excellent in service and food quality Hotel needs to be proactive in telling clients about local walks . Did not use the gym/pool but noted it was busy and well used by clients

Stayed from the Friday to the Sunday - have a lovely time. We had two rooms, one for myself and husband and one next door for my daughter. Both rooms were spotlessly clean and had beautiful views over the loch. Breakfast and other meals we had in the hotel were lovely and the Staff very attentive. We had read the... More
