“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Only just arrived home from this hotel but loved It so much I just had to a review straightaway!! Booked this at the very last minute. What a delight. Our room (3) Cheiftain, was lovely. Beautiful real wood furniture, leather chairs and fantastic extremely large and comfy bed. The view from our window was nothing short of stunning, overlooking Loch Earn. The food was brilliant too. The four course dinner was very impressive. Everything cooked to perfection with wines to match every dish. Stunning views from the dining room. Lovely bar with two gorgeous lounges with beautiful leather chesterfield sofas. Again, stunning views. Breakfast this morning was lovely. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and all staff that we encountered were lovely. Found this hotel completely by accident, but what a happy accident it was! Hope to return really soon.

Room Tip: Our room, the chieftain was fabulous! Room 3. On the top floor.

We booked the hotel as a mini-break and were not disappointed. The owners were friendly, the weather was great-at least on the day we arrived-a very peaceful and calm location, just what we needed. The room we had was very comfortable and spacious and the shortbread and choice of teas/coffee/hot chocolate was very good. We eat at the restaurant on both nights though had the bar menu and not the full restaurant menu. The sea bass dish was very good and would highly recommend. The other dishes were excellent too as were the deserts. We found the whole experience very good and would definitely return there again.

If your needs are a very comfortable hotel with wonderful views across Loch Earn,excellent food, and a friendly knowledgable host on all things Scottish, then you must stop at The Achray House Hotel.
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights on our way up to Skye. The hard working owners take a very personal hands-on approach towards all aspects of making their guests feel at home and welcome.
Our visit was a wonderful, very friendly and extremely informative introduction to Scotland. We left having had a relaxing stay in our large comfortable room with views across the lovely Loch Earn. These was matched by the same views from the restaurant whilst we were being indulged by quite exceptional,delicious and innovative food not to mention an extensive and reasonably priced wine list.
Thank you both for a very memorable and relaxing stay.

Six of us went for a one night stay at the weekend to experience the Taste of Scotland meal offer and walk locally. Both exceeded our expectations with 2 of our friends who hadn't been before certain to return with some of there friends. The log fire in the lounge was lovely to sit round after the meal with a glass or two of fine Port and a choice from the selection of Malt and blended whiskeys. The start of a good walk is only 500 yards away next to the four seasons hotel if you like taking advantage of some of Scotland's finest scenery.

Room Tip: As the hotel over looks the Loch, first floor rooms at the front are the best to appreciate the view...

We had an overnight her taking advantage of the taster menu. Great for a quiet stay to take in some breathtaking scenery. The owners were welcoming and knowledgeable about the food they served.
The views down the loch when having dinner were almost worth the price alone. The rooms were clean and well appointed. A couple of people working very hard to give people a taste of Scotland. Great stuff.

Room Tip: We had a loch side view which was great.

Thanks for your generous review, and for calling it a "taste of Scotland". This is absolutely what we are trying to achieve: the best of Scotland without an overload of tartan, haggis and shortbread.

We stayed for just one night, wish we could have stayed longer. The overall quality and presentation of the food was first class. The view over Loch Earn whilst enjoying our meals - stunning! Then a whiskey nightcap relaxing by the fire in the comfortable,cosy lounge.We will be back!

The view was magnificent and so also was the food. What superb value in that we thoroughly enjoyed every last morsel of the taster menu. The service was superb and the owners went totally out of their way to ensure that the whole experience in visiting the hotel simply could not be bettered. An explanation of the dishes in the taster menu was given by the joint owner and it is presumed that the "other half" did the cooking...and what a real delight this was. The couple were more than happy to talk to ourselves and to other guests and indeed represented, to our minds, everything that hosts should be. The bedrooms were immaculate and the breakfast exactly as it should be. This is the type of hotel which deserves to succeed since they really know how to bring the whole experience together. Hearty congratulations all round

Room Tip: Go to experience really great hospitality in every way
