“Delightfull”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had dinner at the hotel on Saturday 2nd December and was delighted with everything from the food to the attentiveness of the staff, if given the choice i would prefer to dine in the bar rather than the restaurant but as the food was so good either would be acceptable. The bar oozes character with its warming fires and cosy feel, i would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good food, good service, in a good setting.

We took a group to Pitlochry Theatre and used the East Haugh House as our base. The food and hospitality was exceptional.

The bedrooms vary in size and space and the floors are a bit creaky noisy too if you're abouve the public rooms- but only to be expected in older properties.

If you're planning a visit to the area for any reason we would highly recommend a stay here. We will certainly go back for a longer stay.

Treat yourself to the "Full Haugh" breakfast

One of the best smaller hotels I have ever stayed at. Nothing was too much hassle for the staff. Food amazing and the snug is the place to chill with a cold beer.
Did not know about this until one of my friends had been for a meal and told me about this
Hoping to get back soon

I stayed at East Haugh House with my girlfriend last month and was very impressed. We stayed in one of the four poster rooms which was very cosy and very comfortable. Ensuite bathroom had a jacuzzi bath which was great for soaking in after a cold and wet day out on the hills!

We opted for the dinner bed and breakfast package, and it was well worth the extra for the meals. The food was brilliant, my lamb was cooked to perfection. Followed it up with a great cheese board and a wee dram of whisky in front of their fire place, where we chatted to a couple of other guests staying at the hotel (all very relaxed!). A hearty Scottish breakfast the next morning topped off a great stay. Staff were excellent throughout, very friendly and happy to help.

I would say it's a great place to base yourself for a trip up to Pitlochry, especially for couples or a group fishing/walking trip. Very chilled out and warm atmosphere. I would stay again - and my girlfriend has recently bought vouchers for her parents to use there too!

In two minds whether to actually leave a review as I don't want anyone else to find out about this gem of a hotel, however it is rare to encounter somewhere so warm and homely. The perfect base for exploring the local area and the local bus stops right outside the hotel.

We received a genuine, happy welcome and shown to our room which had some lovely touches: towel origami, homemade tablet and chocolates, fluffy bathrobes and miniature bath bombs. The bed was comfortable and the room was toasty. All rooms are individual with pretty cushions and interesting pictures on the walls.

The restaurant and bar areas are formal but quaint and elegant. The wood-burning fire is the perfect spot for enjoying a couple of ales.

We dined in the bar the first night and it was delicious. The lamb and venison dishes were superb and it felt very decadent. One tiny thing though - slightly too much dipping olive oil in the bowl - couldn't get to the balsamic vinegar, so two separate bowls may be better. At breakfast we opted for the Full Haugh both mornings and it was super. Ample locally-sourced produce, served on piping hot plates and a real treat. The hot and cold breakfast selection is fantastic and it was a tough decision whether to have the kippers on the second morning but the Full Haugh won.

The customer service was fantastic - formal but relaxed and friendly and nothing was a problem. Every member of staff was polite, cheerful and helpful and you leave feeling like a friend.

Second tiny gripe is the poor sound insulation/building construction in the Stoat's Tail room. Considering the price of the room, we were affected on our second night and although not the fault of the fellow guests, the occasional noise of creaking floorboards and conversation was slightly intrusive. Next time I'll save my pennies for a night in Dusty Miller!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an extensive and lovely review of your recent stay with us - we are so delighted that you enjoyed it!

I am so sorry that your second night was slightly disrupted by the creaky floorboards. We have tried everything to minimise noise levels in that ground floor room you where in, including adding an additional false ceiling with deadening in between but we just can't get rid of the creaky floor boards completely i'm afraid. But please let us know when you visit again and we will make sure you have a free up-grade - and hopefully to the four poster room (Dusty Miller) if it's available for you!

Simply excellent. From the very warm welcome, being shown around the Hotel through to my leaving in the morning could not be faulted. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious room which was very well equipped - home made lavender shortbread was superb - beautifully cooked and presented cuisine in the evening and superb breakfast - all served with a smile !
