You know, I sometimes read these reviews and wonder exactly what it is people expect, especially from family-run establishments. Recent reviews of the Tayside have been less than generous.
This is a small hotel in a small Scottish town, within easy travelling distance of many amazing visitor attractions. Yes, the building is old and has its idiosyncracies. However, I would point out that the rooms are clean and comfortable and the welcome is always warm and genuine. The shower does take a while to heat up, but who is in a rush???
If you want shiny glass and chrome, go to a soulless multi-national hotel where flunkies pander to your every whim. GIve me Highland Hospitality every time.
All meals were well cooked and well presented and the breakfast, a 'build your own' affair from a good menu choice, set us up for a busy day. Incidentally, when we have stayed the restaurant has been fully booked for evening meals.
Please remember that hotels like the Tayside are providing local employment and earning their, very hard-working owners, a living.
I can whole-heartedly recommend it, and would say that it is our hotel of choice when we are in the area.
