We stayed here for a weekend away at the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. Crisp white bedding and a really comfy bed, genuinely friendly staff and really good breakfasts made our stay a real treat, we'll definitely be returning.

Very small room, no character, bathroom window was filthy, decor was very tired, again bathroom in much need of a refurb. Bar was closed and... More

Stayed here last August for wedding anniversary. Room could do with refresh but I believe it is a work in progress. Breakfast was excellent both mornings and the inn next door serves excellent food. It's only a short walk into Dunkeld along the road and across the bridge.

Thanks to the lovely Rachel for her help when we got lost on way to station and missed our train. We waited in the cosy haven of the hotel bar. We liked the look of the hotel and felt so welcomed that we're planning to return to stay.
