I was looking for a place in Pitlochry relatively last minute and I managed to stumble across this wee gem. It's hard to describe how perfect this was for myself and my finacee, both of us wanted a quiet, well maintained and traditional Scottish hotel. If this is what you are looking for then I would not hesitate to book... More

Lovely small hotel but very disappointed with dinner,totally underwhelmed,can't understand two AA rosettes.Maybe just an off couple of days which can happen anywhere!We really liked the place but I didn't like feeling"frogmarched " to our table at breakfast the second day and being rushed to order! Mind you,my wife thought I imagined it and she is probably right,as usual! Lovely... More

Hello mini55. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience in the restaurant during your stay at Knockendarroch eight months ago. It is also a great disappointment for us personally, to receive a poor review for a stay that occurred six months before my wife and I purchased the hotel. From your surname (Diack), I have... More

We wanted to experience the Scottish Highlands on our 2 week UK/Ireland trip. The Knockendarroch was a lovely old mansion, somewhere between a BB and a hotel experience. We had breakfast and dinner and I must say that the dinner was outstanding. They have a triple A rating that we have never heard about in North America, but, they deserved... More

The hotel is not cheep (141 GBP for a standard double) but as we came in and got an upgraded beautiful room on first floor with a nice view over Pitlochry roofs - it worth every penny. Very attentive, friendly, stuff. Wonderful dinner and a very good Scottish breakfast. We definitely will stay here again when in Pitlochry.

Stay: 26th October to 29th October. This was our second visit. From the phone booking and right up until our departure the experience and service was excellent. What stands out a mile is the quality of the staff. They are polite, resourceful, and proactive and all have great personality. The well hidden chef is a culinary wizard. The quality of... More

This is our second visit to Knockendarroch and it will not be our last. This is a small, stylish, comfortable bolt hole with stylish rooms, lovely service and a restaurant that you would find hard to beat anywhere. The hotel ownership has recently changed but we did not notice any deficiencies and if the new owners can continue to deliver... More

Hi Maggie G. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed yourselves and that we made the grade as new owners. We have lots of refurb work going on over the winter but nothing that should change the feel of the building or the style of our product. Hopefully you will like the... More

We stayed at Knockendarroch House Hotel for the last night of our honeymoon tour around Scotland. We booked the four poster room as our visit was for a special occasion and were really glad we did. The room had a lovely classic feel about it and was the sort of thing we'd expected (and hoped for) such as tweed/tartan curtains... More

Myself and my boyfriend were after a weekend away from Edinburgh in the scottish countryside for our anniversary and Knockendarroch did not disappoint! We arrived in Pitlochry around midday and did the local cycle route for £30 bike hire with map which had fantastic views and both easy and more challenging routes.
