We moved to Auchterarder about a year ago and live not far from the Cairn lodge, I had hoped that it would be a nice bolt hole for some food with my wife and daughter, or even for a cheeky pint, so I was very disappointed when we visited for dinner and were met by a concierge with his shirt...

You know the feeling when something is not wrong but not right either? Arrived in high hopes but so many little things just weren't right. item: the steps at the front were too steep - it took an effort to mount them item: the fancy tap arrangement in the toilets was not screwed to the floor properly and the dyson...

Had planned a romantic special break for some time for dinner. The decor is stunning! The service was awful. Served starter with no drinks on table and drinks arrived after we'd finished them. The steak was not cooked as requested which meant I ate my meal while my partner sat with no meal. Not the romantic evening I had planned... More

bought my mum a voucher for lunch for 2 with a glass of prosecco for Christmas which was £35 and she came to use the voucher yesterday. When she got there nobody took their coats, the table and the floor was dirty. They also heard a member of staff referring to another member of staff as "a retard". The waitress... More

Dinner this evening. Positives first - decor beautiful; scallops exquisite; venison tender. Negatives - had to take coats into dining room - no idea if there is a cloakroom - wasn't offered. Menu very boring - unless you're into burgers, don't bother. More variety on your average pub grub menu. Bruschetta - two chunks of cold bread with cranberry sauce... More

My boyfriend and I treated ourselfs for valentines weekend. The hotel is gorgeous with lovely spacious rooms, big beds, huge bathroom and beautiful decor. Our meal was lovely we went for the chateaubriand steak dish, it was quite pricey but cooked to perfection. I have to say though the portion size was really quite small for the price of it... More

Visited with friends for dinner. Whilst the decor may not be to everyone's taste, everything black and harsh white, it is immaculate with comfortable dining chairs, polished glasses etc. The pleasant and efficient staff are smartly dressed, so why were we not happy. My wife ordered Innis & Gunn beer battered catch of the day - whilst the fish was... More

Have been here on four occasions, food has been nicely presented ( though portions a wee bit small and not cheap). However, the service is not great and the staff can only really be described as rather miserable. It smacks of a place trying to be too exclusive and is missing an opportunity in a town which is desperately crying... More
