Stopped here to be close to Loch of Lowes for an early morning visit. first a drink in the friendly bar and chat with a very proud hotelier. our room was comfortable and clean. Could do with a little touch of Scotland decor but certainly adequate and we slept well. Both our dinner and breakfast were well presented and flavorsome.

This is a very nice hotel, it is showing its age, but you could tell at one time, it was very upscale. We stayed on the 3rd floor, and it was a beautiful stair case leading up there, but an elevator would have been nice, since we were carrying luggage. It had a smoking room on the second floor, or...

It's not the first time I've stayed here. It won't be the last. The owner is an excellent mine host. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our meals were good and value for money. The scrambled eggs are the best you will get and the bacon is perfect and not a single rasher of the cheap stuff. It's the little... More

We took all the accommodation in the hotel for a 60th birthday celebration and everyone was very happy with the hotel . The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive and helpful with our quirky requests , especially Janet, the manager. Would certainly stay there again.

The Royal Dunkeld was my first stop on a five night motorcycle tour around Scotland with nine friends. Instantly welcoming the landlord was there to show us where to park and to offer his assistance where he could. Sharing with a good friend, our room was in the Courtyard Annexe. The room was spacious with a well equipped en-suite. It... More

Last Sunday travelling north, we stopped in Dunkeld and eventually landed up in the Woodlands bar/restaurant in the Royal Hotel. Good varied menu and good service meant we left satisfied and happy with our lovely meal promptly served. For 5.45 on a Sunday, just what we wanted -and the Atholl Hotel seemed unable/unwilling to provide.

This hotel looked decent from the outside but inside was not particularly welcoming or friendly, both in terms of decor and staff. Dunkeld is a lovely spot but this hotel is completely trumped by the Atholl Arms Hotel down the street, which we also experienced on our trip. I thought this hotel would have had a quaint clientele to suit... More
