The hotel room was clean and comfortable, if a little dated. Good quality linen and lovely soft towels are alway very welcome. The bed was comfortable and the room was the perfect temperature for a good nights sleep. The traditional scottish breakfast was well prepared and used fresh local ingredients. The hotel was quiet, as there didn't seem to be... More

This hotel, has tried for many many years, to update itself but always fails. The rooms have all had a major refurbishment and look good, but still look cheap. Fake silk flowers in a vase, canvas art from Dunelm on a hook with the string showing, a large TV sitting on a dressing table that hides the mirror, towels folded... More

myself and my family stayed here for one night. I loved the character of the building and had a lovely stay. The owner was very hospitable. The breakfast was great and overall brilliant value for money. definitely recommend

Good night at the Strathearn - great service and good "banter" with bar staff - just what you need for a chilled night out! Service friendly and as a local a great place to go for a few beers and good food!

Was here last weekend & was disappointed in this hotel. On the surface looked ok but once inside my room was small it had a frosted window although it did have a sky light with a blind on it. The shower was small had to breath in to get the door shut! First mornings breakfast was ok second all we... More

Had our wedding reception in here, 20 years ago. Thought it would be a nice treat to stop by today, for afternoon tea. Well, calling to make a reservation didn't fill me with confidence. The chef hadn't turned in and there was some shouting back and forward on the other end of the telephone to see if they could still... More

What can I say, I have tried on numerous visits to give business to a local hotel however have given up trying to get a decent meal in this establishment. Countless supposedly chefs have not made the benchmark of providing even the basics ! Bar service and waitressing is good When a restaurant is empty it does nobody no favours... More

On arriving for a 4 o'clock meal everyone had congregated in the foyer as we were informed the tables were not ready. There were quite a few empty tables but we were seated about five feet from open doors - not... More

Booked for Christmas dinner. Over an hour to get our starter then served crushed ice as a sorbet in a paper cake case. Eventually, after being seated for 2 hours 20 minutes, my daughter's main course arrived stone cold. Waited 10 minutes for a waitress to appear to complain (still not served our food). Eventually got up went to the... More

All round good experience. food good, staff very friendly and helpful. DJ was great. pity there was only 2 tables but I enjoyed it non the less. The real log fire on arrival was lovely. The chef was very friendly, she even came out from the kitchen to make sure everything was ok with our food.
