I had my wedding reception at the Birnam Hotel last weekend and James and all of the staff put in 100% effort to make the day special. Everything was well organised and the staff really couldn't have worked any harder to ensure the guests were happy. The food that was served was excellent and the portion sizes were very big...

First, a positive. We found the majority of the staff helpful and trying to do their best. Now, the negatives. 1. Our room had thick dust on the skirting boards. Our shower had cracked tiles and mould growing in it. The net curtains were dirty and grey. I found a previous occupants medication lying on the floor. 2. Housekeeping "cleaned"... More

A hotel that I would strongly advise families not to go to. The restaurant experience was beyond unsatisfactory; the waiters were very condescending, telling us that they 'don't provide free food' - as if we went there for charity, and not to willingly pay for a meal. The breakfast however was the pinnacle of how depressing this hotel experience was.... More

We arranged for 30 old colleagues from around Scotland to meet for lunch at this hotel as it is easy to access, with nearby A9 road and railway station just a short distance away. The food and hospitality was simply wonderful. It all made for a truly memorable day and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. We had visited this hotel in... More

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.

We have driven past this hotel so many times we decided it was time to stay. The imposing exterior promised so much. The building is beautiful and has so much character but what a disappointment. 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

Delighted with food and service, Graham the Waiter was outstanding in his advice and service. Very high quality of food and general hospitality. Choice was good especially the wide choice from the Italian options, we sampled a wide variety across the range all were delighted and we would thoroughly recommend it. We will certainly be returning, very good value for... 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.
