We ate here, so i don't know about the rooms. We came because our teenager fancied the "Royal bangers and mash", probably because she and I had had a giggle about the oxymoron. The food was OK but not special. I was pleased that they had lamb's liver on the menu, I always like that and I did this time,... More

We stayed in the annex. Very good value for money. Dunkeld is a beautiful place and this hotel is most certainly part of the character of the town. They didn't mind the dog, the room was clean and comfortable and there were 3 choices on the menu for veggies. There were even veggie sausages for breakfast. next time I stay... More

Lovely window boxes on outside but sadly made for rather dirty , cobweby windowsills on the inside. The bedroom and corridor floors made a terrible creaking and the tv was the tiniest old type that i have ever seen. On the plus side the dinner and breakfast was fine and staff were very friendly. Dunkeld a good place to see... More

We stayed at the Royal Dunkeld on our way up to and back from the the north of Scotland. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the restaurant served good unpretentious food at pretty good prices. The hotel is showing signs of age but is really very good value for money.

We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon on Friday to a lovely warm welcome at reception, we had been allocated a room on the 3rd floor but as there is no lift, we were offered an alternative room on a lower floor, we chose to stay on the 3rd floor room as we knew the view would be lovely.

Our room for 1 night when passing through Dunkeld was on the second floor - it was fairly large and ok (no lifts!) Breakfast again ok - served by young staff who although adequate could do with a bit of training in customer care - an item I requested was forgotten and the dining room was not busy- I asked...

We booked a weekend in this delightful traditional hotel. The hotel was very busy but the staff and owner appeared to take it all in their stride. Everyone was very friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The room we were in was in the annex and was clean and comfortable, although it was a little... More

We turned off the main road to try Dunkeld on a whim and were we rewarded! The Royal Dunkeld is dated (has no lift) but the food, ambiance and general comfort well surpassed its 3 star rating. The manager kindly offered to carry up our cases to the 3rd floor. Quiet though quirky room with lovely views over the rooftops... More

Comfortable and very friendly welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Very good breakfast, loads of choice, hot and cold and staff are knowledgeable about the local area. The kids were very happy in the informal atmosphere and there was a nice, relaxed beer garden at the rear.
