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

An excellent week end stay at a hotel that serves first class food and the staff are very helpful and polite. I would certainly go back and would recommend this hotel if you are thinking of visiting the Perthshire area. No complaints at all.

It's good if you are in a rush and cannot find anything better for the night. It's evidently a hotel that has seen better times. The pub is very good and the food is nice, the stay is well... interesting. The standard of hygiene is quite low, I had two rooms and in both of them the sheets were shady... More

The Royal Dunkeld Hotel (pub and restaurant included) is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The people who work their are friendly and so very helpful with anything we needed. The food was amazing. I didn't know I could eat that much and the local brews they have on tap were very tasty. The room had a... More

I have stayed here many times, Janet and Neil and their staff always give you a great welcome and look after you during your stay. Rooms are clean, well equipped and the food in the restaurant is outstanding. the dinner, bed & breakfast package with a packed lunch is very good value.

Spent 2 nights over Easter week-end. Your simply MUST try the Cullen Skink and the Pulled Pork on the menu. Both - absolutely delicious. We love this hotel and visit at least once per year. You would be hard pushed to beat it.

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
