This hotel is an ancient one. Established in the first half of the 19th century, it gained the qualification of "Royal" at the end of it, when its staff was able, with a short advice, to offer a remarkable stay to the Queen Victoria on the way to Balmoral, blocked in Perth by a railway accident. It has maintained the Victorian style (and the Victoria's original furniture) both in the lobby and in the rooms, that are, in any case, very confortable and clean. Unfortunately, not all the rooms have a view and there is no lift, so be careful if you have heavy luggage. The former main entrance of the hotel - now used as a backdoor - allows you to reach the pedestrial area and the city center in a second.
The hotel has a restaurant, a beautiful terrace and facilities for private events (in fact, we can't try the cooking because of a wedding party). It's easy to find because it's located on the main road that borders the River Tay and allows a quick exit from Perth both towards North (Speyside distilleries and Deeside castles) and South (Edimbourgh).
Price in line with the size of the city: £ 100 for a double room.
