My husband and I have just returned from our 2nd 2-night break at Knockendarroch and cannot fault them on the standard of the rooms (both public and bedrooms), the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff and the superb food. We had a lovely, relaxing time and enjoyed every meal, in fact the breakfasts were among the best I have had... More

Everything about our stay was great. Our balcony room was comfortable, well presented and literally spotless. Food was amazing - canapes in the lounge followed by a very well thought out and delicious menu. Vegetarian options were much more interesting than the usual offerings! The staff at the hotel really stood out as a positive part of our stay -... More

Very friendly and welcoming hotel. What really stands out is the welcome that you receive and service you get from the great staff. Mar and Maria couldn’t do enough for us, whether it was giving good advice on great places to visit or service in the lounge and dining room with wonderful food and a good selection of wines and...

We spent two nights on a weekend offer, dinner B&B. Situated (like a castle) on a steep hill, the building has just been modernised to a very high standard. The new owners have done an excellent job renovating the building and putting together a group of staff that are friendly, yet thoroughly professional, and all together produced a small hotel...

A grand hotel with lovely views around. We were warmly received and the member of staff was very helpful and gave us a small jug of fresh milk. We had room 12 which has views of Pitlochry mountain from large dorma windows and is up 2 flights of stairs and no lift. The room was spacious and clean, and has... More

Hi Nottsvacationers, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us and I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed yourselves. Room 12 is a definite favorite of mine and I think the views of the Ben to the north make the trip up to the second floor well worth while. Hopefully we will see you again,... More

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

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.
