Royal Dunkeld is a lovely, full of character hotel on the high street of the little village of Dunkeld, just moments away from the Tay and neibouring village of Birnam (of Beatrix Potter and Macbeth fame). Dunkeld is a beautiful, historic, nostalgic and relaxed little place (which my family and I have been visiting for many years) and the hotel... More

Our first visit to Dunkeld and certainly won't be our last. Straddling the Tay and nestled in among wooded hillsides and fertile meadows, this is a lovely wee town. Plenty of well-marked walking paths to take you on short strolls on the river banks or longer hikes up the wooded slopes to waterfalls and rocky outcrops. The hotel staff were... More

We stayed at the Dunkeld for a few nights and had a great experience. It is very small, with an extremely hard-working and friendly staff ! The woman who greeted us at the front counter also pulled some pints for us later in the pub and I saw her clearing breakfast plates the next morning. Thank you for a wonderful... More

Would recommend this hotel staff are great nothing was too much hassle for them, the owner of the Hotel welcomed us when we checked in and he was lovely so welcoming and friendly. The Hotel is slightly old fashioned with a winding staircase and a rabbit warren of corridors but the room we got was spacious, clean and catered for... More

We stayed for one night for a wedding in Dunkeld, it was a sunday so wasn't busy. Dunkeld is a lovely tourist town and probably why all the hotels can charge as much as they can. The hotel is on the main street on the left hand side, there is free parking round the back although i imagine it will... More

Found this lovely hotel in the peaceful and quaint town of Dunkeld. The rooms were lovely, although the bathrooms and showers a little small in some rooms. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the hotel restaurant two nights in a row and enjoyed some fine Scottish cuisine. A lovely hotel in a lovely town that would gladly visit again.

The dinner menu was extensive, our meal was faultless. Very good value for money. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. It was a lovely day so we could sit out in the beer garden -very relaxing.

Hotel is easy to find on Atholl Street, on left if coming from the South. There is on street parking but the hotel also has two car parks at the back. First time I've been here and I found it a rather quaint rambling hotel with nice tartan carpets. The room we had was large, clean and spacious. Cooked breakfast... More

We were located in Dunkeld as it was easy reach of the golf courses we were playing.The hotel was comfortable enough, the rooms were good sized with coffee and tea making, kettle and cups on hand. Situated on the Main Street of the town. The food was of a good standard and the bar was a bit small which was... More
