My friends had their wedding reception at the Royal George this weekend and it was a great venue; a central Perth location by the Tay, a good size function room (for c.60 people) and a cracking dance floor (vital for a ceilidh!). The drinks weren't overly price either which is always a bonus.
My husband and I stayed overnight and although the room was spacious and fulfilled our needs for a one night stay, it was definitely tired and in need of a bit of a spruce up. Both the double bedroom and bathroom were functional and clean but the bed had seen better days - it was a little like sleeping on a bag of potatoes with a few springs mixed.
Breakfast was served until 9.30 (so don't expect a lie in!) and eating in the conservatory you have a lovely view of the Tay. The breakfast selection was good (from a continental selection to kippers) but the 'Scottish Breakfast' certainly didn't live up to its name as it lacked any traditional elements - no haggis, no fruit pudding, no lorne sausage. Very disappointing!
All in all we found the Royal George a nice hotel with old style charm but a room refresh is definitiely needed before it truly meets its 4* classification.
