We spent 2 nights here to attend a wedding. This is an ideal location for all local towns & villages & there was plenty of parking at the rear of the building. Our room was small but clean and adequate for our requirements. Breakfasts were lovely. The owners Ewan & Kirsten were very attentive & nothing was too much trouble.

The MacDonald Arms is unbeatable. Kirsten & Ewan are just the best. Noting is to much trouble for them, they are very attentive & friendly. We were there last night on a sad day for our family & Kirsten had a beautiful bouquet on the table for us when we arrived. Thats the kind of loving thing they do. The... More

From ringing up in the morning to check it would be ok to park our camper van overnight, to arriving, Euan and Kirsten were excellent hosts. So much so that we ended up parking up for 4 nights! The food and hospitality were first rate, and the bar locals made the experience even more enjoyable. Watching the final three matches... More

Stayed here whilst attending an event at Scone Palace - Cycletta ladies only cycling event. Brilliant location. Welcomed by a lovely couple who were very attentive and charming. The rooms were immaculate and had been recently refurbished. Equipped with TV and Wifi made for an enjoyable evening. Plenty space to park and the food was lovely. Wish I had time... More

Fabulous breakfast was the best start... More

On my recent visit to Scotland I decided to break up my journey and stay in the Perth area. I am so pleased that I chose the Macdonald Arms. Kirsten and Ewan are the perfect hosts and as has been said before in another review, nothing too much trouble. It is a welcoming pub/hotel and rooms are at the back... More

We loved this place and most of all, we loved our hosts Euan and Kirsten made us feel totally at home everywhere in their little hotel. This young couple is ever improving the Macdonald Arms Hotel. While outside of Perth's inner city, it is close enough to make visiting the town easy. Now, if you are looking for super luxury,... More

Overall a nice little village Hotel, easy to find in a good location with easy access to many parts. 10 minutes from Blairgowrie, 5 minutes Perth and 30 mins to Dundee. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Being honest, more a pub/guest house than hotel, they appear to have recently restructured to increase rooms, now 8. We had a... More
