We stayed for 2 nights in October using a Virgin Experience Two Night Break with Dinner voucher.
The room was a first floor riverside room overlooking the river Tay. The room was spotless This was possibly the most relaxing place we have ever stayed and we spent what felt like hours just watching the river and the fishermen.
The bar was small and cosy, and like the rest of the hotel, with friendly staff. The free wifi was very hit and miss though.
Dinner was outstanding, with the cheese trolley an unforgettable highlight.
After a good nights sleep we tucked into a excellent full Scottish breakfast, before heading out to explore the area.
For the second nights dinner we had to jump in to the hotel's Land Rover as the main hotel had a wedding. Just outside the grounds of the hotel was the bistro which only opens when there is an event taking place..
We were greeted by the same staff from the night before and the same menu, which again did not disappoint.
In summary this is a beautiful hotel and grounds with top quality food and staff and somewhere that we will be returning to in the future.
