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.

This hotel is a part of the Main Street in a village which is charming. We were well received by the manageress who had everything ready and had us signed in very quickly. She was friendly and efficient throughout our two night stay. The bedroom was clean and well decorated although we had to remove a bag of rubbish left... More

Booked this hotel through Classic Britain on Dinner, Bed and Breakfast deal. Check in done well and everything explained including the dinner option. Room 105 on First Floor looking onto street, nice size and very clean. Residents lounge nice and big but like all older hotels looking dated, replacement tv would be good there and in rooms. Food very good,... More

Randomly selected the Woodlands Restaurant to get out of the rain.....but was very impressed! Soup and bread was fresh and delicious......Sour breads and humous starter was amazing.......steak pie with chips was great and veg very fresh!.....and the goats cheese and black pudding salad was worth going back for!!! Good service too.

While on tour in Scotland, our group stayed at this hotel (who complimented us on being such a fun group) which is located along the River Tay outside of this exquisite little village called Dunkeld. Nice 20 minute walk along the river into the town where there are lots of shops, lovely people, an old cathedral under restoration, and restaurants.... More

Popped in for lunch here on the 5th July 2014, purely as they advertised that dogs were welcome. We were travelling through Dunkeld with our 2 pooches and found it hard in previous towns to take them in anywhere - but not here. We were escorted to the beer garden and the staff even went and got our dogs a... More
