A wonderful hotel that totally exceeded our expectation. It more than served our purpose as a base for our fishing trip. The breakfast was excellent and the food in the Woodlands restaurant was outstanding. The fishermans package of dinner, bed and breakfast, as well as a packed lunch offered exceptional value for money. We will definitely return for out next... More

Have stayed here a few time now. You are always welcomed by friendly service. Rooms are nice and clean, a bit dated but for £45 a night fantastic value. Breakfast is nice although as a greedy guts the full English/Scottish is one sausage, I rasher of Bacon, one egg, few mushrooms and half of tomato. Maybe an offer of more?... More

Dunkeld is a really nice little town. I was delighted with my trip there. This hotel is nice - has an old time charm about it and little soupcon of Scottish eccentricity - would recommend it to anyone travelling through.

We originally visited about 2 years ago and knew we'd go back. We had a bright spacious room the first time we stayed but this time we had a small dark pokey room which was pretty shabby and also damp. Although the staff were mostly really nice, we did experience second rate service from a couple of the employees. The... More

Dunkeld is a great place and this hotel is a super family friendly place to stay. Clean and tidy simple but spacious bedrooms, with surprisingly good mattresses. (The number of hotels I have stayed in with horrible marshmallow mattresses, not so here!!!) Lovely food, very good chef who worked very hard to ensure happy customers. Overall, wee gem in a...

We stayed in the Royal for 4 nights 29/12 - 2/1 on a B&B basis. "A lovely traditional Scottish hotel interior...with a contemporary twist" as another reviewer observed; also a very welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Our room was very comfortable/clean/peaceful. Food was excellent and well presented with very friendly/attentive waiting staff - as well as breakfast, we ate in the... More

We stayed at this hotel to celebrate my mother in laws 90th. 5 rooms booked, 14 for a meal. Wonderful food and the help I received organizing the arrangements before the event was given in a friendly and efficient manner. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was really good. It was a very busy 'Santa day' in Dunkeld... More

Stayed in this hotel for the first time last w/end and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Lovely traditional Scottish hotel interior but with a contemporary twist. We were on an organised music wend with friends and the facilities and breakfast were very good. For me I would get rid of the Vetriano prints in that lovely function... More
