“mostly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

stayed in this hotel for one night, in the lodge as we had the dog. The room was Ok but decor a bit dated. Dinner nice in a lovely setting and attentive, pleasant staff, although the "complimentary" cocktail was very average and I had a disappointing pudding. Delicious Arbroath smokie risotto, though. Pool, sauna etc good although could do with a bit of a freshen up. Had a manicure with a delightful well trained girl. Not sure if I would spend too many nights here, but overall a good experience

This lovely old castle hotel is a great place to stay. Great swimming pool and a gym, and beautiful grounds to walk in. The food was absolutely wonderful - really special. And really friendly staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

Room Tip: I think the rooms in the main hotel are the best.

Tiny room with tiny bed and the stuffing of the synthetic duvet falling out. No bath.Peculiar service ranging from overly helpful( the waitresses) to quite rude (by maitre d chap) who treated us like an inconvenience he could well do without- and lent his head against the serving hatch- disgusting. having been at a wedding all day we had not managed to book our breakfast time and were told we couldn't come in for breakfast so were sent out after a few minutes we were asked to come back in but instead of showing us where to sit down the maitre d just walked back to the kitchen- leaving us standing around not know where to go. The hotel's only redeeming feature was the surprisingly good food( provided you arrived in your allocated 15 minute slot). I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. If you have to go here go for dinner.

Just back from a weekend stay,we booked the lodge and were very surprised by the most amazing views from our window, food was superb and pretty well priced. We used the pool , sauna and steam room which are all under a big conservatory. The machines in the gym all face out to some of the best views I have seen in a while.
All in all a stunning place and well worth a visit, the only minus we had was our room in the lodge was on ground level and people could walk past our window not too much of a problem for us but maybe not for everyone.
A mention must be made of all the staff,especially young Amy and Jordan in the restaurant who were lovely.

Room Tip: The views in the misheard superb but ask to be on upper floor for both better views and more privacy...

Staff very friendly & helpful. Rooftop restaurant has a good view & tastefully decorated to tone in with landscape. Food was good. Evening meal recommended. Location ideal to explore Perthshire. Only criticism was our room was a bit tired which was in the lodge however our view and peacefulness made up for it. No comment with regards to the spa as we had no time to use it.

First class stay again at this hotel. Beautiful surroundings, excellent service and absolutely top class dining in a stunning roof top setting. Stayed in one of the suites which was very comfortable, if a little quirky! Would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel - and the dining experience is one not to be missed. Will be back.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the Castle deluxe or the suites.

We have just checked out after an overnight stay in the Drummond Suite. There is nothing bad I could say about this hotel. Everything from its location with its beautiful scenery and peaceful atmosphere to the delicious and beautifully presented meals meant we had a lovely time and wished we could have stayed longer. The room we stayed in was lovely, very clean and pretty and an amazing four poster bed which I reluctantly left to have a fantastic breakfast in the rooftop restaurant. This hotel is a gem of a find!! We made full use of the facilities, gym, sauna, steam room Jacuzzi. It even has its own private cinema which unfortunately we didn't get time to use. We will most certainly be back. Would highly recommend this hotel to anybody. Jason and his staff are very friendly and helpful and so a great job!!
