“Good food and excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

On recommendation from friends, I and three other friends recently called in for dinner at this family run hotel and we all very much enjoyed the experience. We had not booked so were quite lucky to be accommodated as it was pretty busy. After being seated in the Lounge bar our drinks order was served at the table and we had plenty of time to look at the menus and deliberate on what to order for our meals - the choice on offer was excellent. When the orders arrived it all looked very appetising and it tasted just as good as it looked. We all enjoyed our meals very much. My steak was cooked exactly to my specification and absolutely delicious.

Could not fault the service and I will certainly be making a return visit when next in the area. This hotel is just outside Perth and only a couple of miles off the A9 so ideally placed for people like me who regularly take visitors on trips into the Highlands.

Not a bad hotel...........good sized rooms, excellent shower, and really good cooked breakfast. But the smell and the sticky surfaces caused by frying oil spoiled the experience. Not a lot more to say about the place but I need to write at least 200 characters. The bar was convivial and the menu had a couple of interesting dishes among the usual lassagne and fried fish, but still that odour. Why do I get this feeling that some Scottish hotels don't take that extra push to make themselves excellent

My wife and I recently spent the weekend at this hotel, the hotel, staff and food were excellent. Nothing was a problem. The room was a good size and spotless, food n the bar was excllend as was the breakfast. The owners are a husband and wife team who obviously take pride in their work and business and were only too glad to help. Another advantage is Neil the owner also runs the local taxi service, so no hanging around for a taxi if you want to venture out of the village .

All in all I have no problem recommending "The Tayside" and would definitely stay again. If only all hotels were run like this one.

We stopped here mid afternoon for " lites bites" after our visit to Stanley Mill. The prices were right and food very good in the bar. I had a baked potato with with shrimp Rose Marie (russian dressing) It was delicious! Great mid-day interlude...

Only stayed one night but wished we'd stayed longer. Room 2 was quite small but cosy. Bed was comfy. Decoration was fresh and tasteful.
The food was excellent. Make sure you try the Cullen Skink (one of the best I've tasted). Prices for food and drink was very reasonable.
The staff were all very chatty and helpful ( as were the locals).

Stayed overnight at this lovely old Scottish hotel, evening meal was ok but not outstanding, the rooms were clean and fresh, breakfast was delicious, a good full Scottish breakfast. Would recommend this hotel, 90 pounds for the room and breakfast, pretty reasonable.

Hi

Stayed with brother and 2 kids for a fishing trip, 4 nights

The staff are excellent, Sophie (save the fish), Kirsten and Jo to mention but a few

Nothing was a problem, very helpful and friendly

We arranged for food to be delivered at lunchtime every day, was always bang on time and hot! Plus very generous portions

A bath would be nice but not a drama as good showers. Beds very comfy as well

Thanks
