We stayed for two nights in a superior room. The room had great views was very clean and was just a little bit different , lovely. The evening meal was so tasty as was breakfast. We thought the food and room were just that wee bit better than Fonab Castle. The staff all made us feel very welcome. Would definitely... More

Situated on a hill overlooking Pitlochry, The Knockendarroch is a real delight. We stayed in one of the Premier rooms which was very comfortable and had magnificent views. These can be seen on their website. The bed was very comfortable and, even though the window was open at night, the only noise was the sound of birds in the morning... More

We stayed here for our trip to compete in the annual Etape Caledona cycle, and I'm delighted to say it's a genuinely excellent hotel. Hotels and guesthouses book up super early for the Etape weekend and I'm so glad we decided to stay here rather than camp. The building is great and offers a large yet cosy lounge with two... More

Having had a thoroughly enjoyable 3-night stay last October there was absolutely no hesitation in booking for an April visit and requesting "our pretty, comfy blue room" again with its fine views (binoculars supplied on the window ledge), well-stocked refreshments tray and quality toiletries. The extremely friendly, helpful, informative and efficient new owners and their staff remembered and welcomed us... More

Hi Alsion B. Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review of your stay. I'm delighted you have noticed so many of our winter upgrades and that you seem to approve. There is a fair amount of additional garden improvement work and external decoration work scheduled for this summer, and hopefully you will like what you see... More

Stayed here for 1 night for a change of scene. Location good as it's only 5 minutes walk from centre. Room was in the original part of hotel which was clean and tidy with everything you needed. Decor slightly dated but in keeping with character of the building as its a older property. Booked a table in the restaurant for... More

One of the best hotels in Scotland. First class service. Exceptional cuisine, friendly attentive staff and spotless rooms. Great location, panoramic views. Well done. Very rarely recommend a hotel but this one is a must. Will definitely be back. Thanks again to you all for a first class stay. Maureen.

We are highly discriminating travellers and very seldom find a hotel which is able to 'tick all the boxes'. However, we simply cannot fault Knockendarroch House in any way whatsoever. Lounges were warm and extremely comfortable and furnished in country house style. Bedrooms were of a good size with high quality toiletries and amazingly comfortable beds. Staff...Maria and Mar ...were... More

We were in the throws of having some work done at home and felt in need of a nice, relaxing kind of a break. We only live 30 miles from Pitlochry, so thought we would pop up there for a night. Chose Knockendarroch because it sounded just the place we were looking for and have to say, it delivered on... More
