We have stayed and eaten at the restaurant, though on this occasion we dropped in and ate at the front bar. We had great fried whitebait to nibble on, then my girlfriend had an excellent celery and egg risotto for main, and I had the wagyu burger. The burger was dry and overcooked and a rather disappointing feed. The front... More

I took my wife here for a weekend out of the big smoke. The weather was lousy, rain and overcast we didn't see a mountain top till the day after our arrival. But still it was scenic, the rain refreshingly comforting, the country side lush and green. We arrived late on the Friday. The receptionist greeted us pleasantly and gave... More

We went to the Royal Mail for our last trip as a family of 2 and it was excellent. We ate at the restaurant, bistro and the public bar. All were great, from the 5 star food to the burger I can't fault a thing. The rooms were fantastic, hotel and restaurant staff so helpful and accommodating. If you're looking... More

My partner and I stayed at the Royal Mail in May this year to celebrate a birthday. Coming from Melbourne, the drive took around 3,5 hours but it was well worth it! The positives: we booked a cottage (cottage 3) which was absolutely beautiful. It was quaint and suited the environment outside. We had an amazing view of Mt Sturgeon... More

A whille ago I wrote a review on this Hotel - how things have changed since Dan Hunter left. Ate in the Bar area this Friday night just gone and it was very disappointing as have the previous few visits been. The food and service is really 'off the boil' - duck confit? I don't think so, a skinless piece... More

We went to the Royal mail because of all the write ups and were very disappointed. The food was good but the staff were not interested and our waiter even left halfway through without apologising and introducing new waiter. Had to wait 45 minutes for our dessert and were only served after we enquired where it was. On leaving the... More

Staying for 6days in Dunkeld at the Royal Mail has been really nice. Staff is really friendly, atmosphere is warm, and they offer food in all price ranges. I had several times lunch in the bar, where good meals are served for lower prices and also visited by lots of locals. The bistro is next door and I had one... More
