We stayed at the Birnam Hotel after attending a wedding at the Hilton Dunkeld, the HIlton were fully booked and so had to book elsewhere. The Birnam had decent photos on their website of bedrooms and thought this would be a good/comfortable place to stay...they must have been well taken photographs as what we experienced was the complete opposite!!

Don't go to this hotel unless you want to feel totally degraded, they charged around £85 for a dump of a small room with woodchip paper, damp walls , dirty toilet, old painted over furniture that is scratched and damaged, beds that do Not have mattress covers on and sheets that are for a single bed rather than a double...

We stayed 2 nights on our way north. We were dealt with well at reception despite a mixup which was quickly and efficiently rectified. Room and bathroom clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast on first morning was delicious and served well by Margaret - chatty and good humoured. The 2nd morning which was very busy the service was very very slow... More

We had an impromptu family dinner in the hotel bar. Melissa was very friendly and efficient and the meal arrived promptly. We had excellent starters and very good main courses in generous portions. This is a big improvement on our last two visits when the food was poor and it's a good thing there is a new chef! Hang onto... More

There were the usual cereals, yoghurts and fruit etc. followed by a cooked to order breakfast from an extensive selection - none of the "help yourself from the hot buffet" stuff which many hotels offer and is usually...

Stayed here for a night on our way north . Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a superior room( upgraded by a very friendly guy who booked us in) which was roomy and comfortable with wonderful views. Breakfast was freshly prepared and served piping hot by a lovely lady. Overall a very enjoyable stay an would certainly visit again

Our party of 4 enjoyed a great weekend at Birnam Hotel a mixture of traditional scottish accommodation and modern decor. The stay was enhanced by the relaxed friendly staff could not do enough for us. Especially Margaret who served professionally with a smile, unique sense of humour which entertained us as we dined.

We spent £80 on a double room and breakfast for two last Friday (February 18th). It was cold outside and the room was underheated and the carpet rather mangy. While the accommodation was fairly acceptable for a hotel of this standard the cooked breakfast was one of the worst I have ever tasted. Only a Caledonian McBrayne ferry cooked breakfast... More
